G'day,

Does anyone know of a non-iPhone app (ie for Mac OS) that does the same thing as the iPhone app that's being shown on the tv ads at the moment, that can tell you the name of a song just by "listening" to it?

Cheers

Shazam is what you're thinking of, and it's also available for S60. (EDIT: And Android according to it's website (http://www.shazam.com).)

Not sure of any others.

Yep, that looks like the iPhone one that's on the ads...

Maybe one day there will be an iPhone emulator for Mac.... :)

If you can find a way to crack the SDK then you do have one :). Wouldn't have a clue how to even begin with that one tho.

Well surely someone's on to it? :) If they can get System 7 to run on an iPhone... surely someone's working at getting an iPhone to run on a Mac...

Meanwhile I'll just try find that coffee lands thingy cd again so I can figure out what the song is...

Midomi also has an iPhone app that is similar to Shazam.
But the difference is that the Midomi service can also be accessed using a web browser.

Ok - on this page:

BassGuitarTips Blog 2.0 ‘Taking 5′ on Take 5… (New video) (http://www.bassguitartips.com/newblog/2008/01/03/taking-5-on-take-5-new-video/)

there's a flash video of a guy playing a song on his guitar... describes the song as "Take 5".

That's the song I wanted a name for... cos all I had it labelled as was.. "Take 5".
