Shazam is all well and good as a music ID tool, but if you've never tried SoundHound, you're missing out. Since I'm practically musically illiterate, I love this app for matching the songs I hear on the radio with a title, artist information, and lyrics. While you won't catch me singing or humming into the app, it's unique in its class for being able to recognize those inputs. (You can also type.) You can flag favorites, of course, and SoundHound makes it easy to buy the songs you hear. On top of the functionality, it looks slick, too.
