Tap That App: Please don't stop the music!

2:19 /

We'll show you all the apps you need to stream music, listen to radio, and identify songs wherever you are.

Oh, oh, oh. Welcome to Tap that App guys. I'm Brian Tong and this is the show where we cover the hottest apps in the mobile space. Now, today we're showcasing music apps for all 3 platforms, the iPhone, Android, and Blackberry, because we really do wanna show you Blackberry guys some love. Now when it comes to music streaming and discovery, the cream of the crop is Pandora. It's available on all 3 platforms and all you have to do is type in an artist, song, or composer and it will create music mixes from Pandora's servers with a similar sound and vibe. Now, this is a must tap app for everyone. Now, if you're looking get radio on your phone, the app for all 3 platforms is iHeartRadio. It's also free and it pulls from over 350 radio stations in the US. You can also tag songs and purchase them from iTunes. For iPhone users specifically, my recommendation is ooTunes. I know it's $4.99, but this is my favorite radio app because it has a wide arrays of talk radio stations and over 150 genres of music plus you can record, broadcasts, and it supports multitasking in iOS4 unlike iHeartRadio. Now what about song identification apps? Shazam is available for all three platforms and it's our favorite F word, free. Hold your phone up to a song played on the radio and it will do its best to identify it. It's easy to pick up and use and it's pretty amazing how well it works. But the song ID app, that's our favorite here, is SoundHound and it's available on both the iPhone and Android platforms. Not only can you hold it up to a song playing, but you could even hum or sing a song into it and it will give you results, -Love to you baby. -There's voice search to find songs and you also get lyrics, song, and artist information in this app that I love to tap. It's free for five searches per month or $4.99 for unlimited searches, and the iPhone version includes an iPad version of the app as well. So, there are your music apps that are tap-worthy to us. If you had any other show ideas, apps, or dance moves you'd like to see, send them along to us at tapthatapp@cnet.com. I'm Brian Tong, thanks for watching and we'll see you guys next time.
