    Free Shazam-Like app for pocket pc?

    Is there an app, preferably free, that works like shazam on the iphone. For those who don't know, you run the app, hold your phone up to the radio, and the app will tell you what song is playing. Thanks

    Actually, Shazam is available for Windows Mobile. I don't recall where I downloaded it, either PPCGeeks or XDA-Forums.

    edit: removed offer to send file as it is apparently not free

    Found the link:

    MusicID - identify that song on the radio using your phone ( VGA and QVGA Touchscreen version ) | Download Pocket PC Freeware and Windows Mobile 6.5 Software

    but the company says that it is not freeware, so it can no longer be downloaded from there.

    Verizon has a 3 digit number you dial and do that, have had it for years. Free as far as I know.

    I just did a Google search and couldn't find anything of the sort. I found a Shazam service where dialing 2580 will identify a song but its a monthly pay service.

    I also found that Vcast enabled phones have this feature with a free download but our phones are not Vcast enabled.

    And this new article just posted today:

    Midomi MusicID comes to Samsung’s Windows Mobile phones | Download Pocket PC Freeware and Windows Mobile 6.5 Software

    Doesn't help the i760, but if you upgrade after it is released... Maybe someone will backport it.
