    Wow. Tunewiki is dead cool.

    Only thing is - I see it downloads the lyrics as the song plays. Any idea how much it uses? I see it downloads adverts as well. Pity you dont seem to be able to pre-download the lyrics.

    Dont want to find it eats up all my data allowance.

    but once u view the lyrics it gets saved in ur phone.. so it wont download it everytime u play the song.. and since its just text it should be a pretty small download..

    The problem is that Android 4.1 does not yet natively read the ID3 lyrics tag. I put in a new feature request that would give Android this ability. If implemented, it will allow the native and 3rd party music players to display lyrics, like all the iOS and Windows Phone players currently do.
    If you want this feature in Android, please let Google know by star'ing the request below:

    Issue 32547 - android - Add ID3v2 Lyrics Support to Media Database - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting
