    I've had the phone for just over a month now and loveing it more and more as I discover more.

    I love Shazam and use it alot when I'm out and there is a great song playing that I have know Idea to whom the artist is.

    Anyway, I use my Phone as a video dashcam when I drive. A great sounding song came on the radio and at the time I was too busy driving to mess around with my phone.

    So when I got home that thought entered my mind. On my last phone Shazam would not work with videos cause the video would stop playing if I got out of the video. That's the same thing with the GS3, unless you use the popup function. So with the video popped out, Shazam hears it perfectly and supplies you all the info you need!

    So if you been using your video camera at the clubs, you can always go back and search a song you may have recorded while you were recording girls dancing.:p LOL

    Anyway I was greatly surprised and Happy I got the name of that song etc. I did a test and it works as well if your just using the phones voice recorder.

    No big deal, just thought I'd spread another one my recent GS3 delights!:D

    Cool cool. I use the google sound search widget instead of shazam now but I never even thought about doing what you did. That's pretty neat. I've been trying to see if it can identify live music and it's doing a pretty good job at that however sometimes it takes longer because it's not the actual music track.

    Wow, I never even heard of Soundhound, or google sound search. I just did some searches and it looks like it's very impressive. I don't know how I missed that, but thanks, I'm downloading now.;)
