SoundHound has only been available for a few days but already they have released an update that should help out plenty of users. While the original release was only available for users running OS 10.1, the new update brings along OS 10.0 compatibility so everyone can get in on the fun. If you've haven't given it a go yet, now's your chance.

SoundHound is a free music recognition app that lets you find the names of songs, right on your BlackBerry. If you hear a song at a bar, home, in your car or wherever - just fire up SoundHound and it will identify the song for you. 

Features include:

  • Blazing fast music recognition
  • The world's only singing and humming recognition
  • LiveLyrics: see lyrics move in time with the music
  • Buy links, YouTube videos, and more!

It's available now for both the Z10 and Q10.

Just downloaded. Awesome. Why can't more major apps be this supportive and quick.

Posted via my Panther Z10 and CB10 app

I'm on Verizon also, with 10.0.9. I couldn't find it by searching in app world, but tapping the link in the article brought it up for me. Maybe try that?

Hmm... Kinda odd. I don't know if maybe there's a way to refresh something? Like forcing an update? (New to the BB10 world so I have no idea)

I'm sure if I'm patient it will show, but I find that difficult when I have been waiting on this app. :)

It's not just Verizon I am in US cannot get it on AT&T either. I hate these US carriers. They have nit released 10.1 yet and already there are talks of 10.2 coming out. Just for the RECORD not that many people here on the US do nit want Blackberries it's just that we are always late to get equipment and then once we have device our Carriers work at a snails pace to get any new software out for equipment because they don't care too. They make it hard for us US consumers who prefer BlackBerry.

I know what you mean. I am happy to have bought the Z10 abroad, and be able to access all the apps. US system of being linked to specific service providers and their whims is an awful system, not at all consumer-oriented.

This is great. Glad to see them take an active role in the platform by realizing not everyone had access to it.

Yep I'm definitely liking the whole bbry app world experience... keep the Mexican app wave flowing...

Nothing for me on Verizon yet either, when I clicked the link in the article it took me to the app but it says its not available. Ugh!

I have no idea why it worked for me when I clicked the link, yet others it's not available. I feel like I need to post a screenshot as proof that I'm not imagining it. haha

When I did I a search on BlackBerry World, I couldn't find it, but when I clicked on the link at the bottom of the article I had no issues downloading it. And I'm not on 10.1 yet, stupid AT&T.

Posted via CB10

You are on AT&T and have 10.0 and we're able to download it? I am on same carrier and same soft ware and cannot?

Posted via CB10

Did you click on the link at the bottom of this article? It worked for me and I'm on AT&T too. And I tested it out, the app works just fine.

Posted via CB10

I did click on link at the bottom it says not available for my Z10. I would take a picture but I also cannot find Screen Munch on my device because again not available for my device as well. :/ Note to Ms. Hawkins you are not the only impatient one. I am wuth AT&T I am nit feeling they are that wonderful. C'mon no reason why AT&T should not have this software update a long time ago

Posted via CB10

What are you talking about? Do you just like to complain? Having a bad day? What gives? I'm on AT&T also. I have the same software as yourself, and got it to download and operate immediately. As far as screen munch goes, do you not no know how to take a screen shot from your device?

Posted via CB10

What I was talking about was that I was not able to get app since then after a few attempts and going to App world it self it did work that is what I am talking about I just don't complain if you read the other postings you would have been informed. As for screen shot if I knew I would have done it. and don't give that bs acting like AT&T does nickel and dime us for less. Your delusional

Posted via CB10

Don't need another application to do a screen capture with Z10. You just have to hit both for volume up and down buttons and it will take screen print.

Put on yesterday on US Verizon Z10 but we had installed a "non official" 10.1 OS a few weeks ago which has no issues and dramatic battery life improvement.

I think it's an AT&T issue rather than the app. Maybe depends on our region. Idk I can't get it either but some AT&T customers have it.

Via CB10 on my fabulous Z10 with wonderful AT&T

Nope I am on t-mo and nothing for me either, this is getting annoying, first no 10.1 & now this.

Posted via CB10

No update for me but I guess I have it so I can wait for it to update :) seemed pretty awesome to me. Thanks Soundhound for being so active in bb10 :)

Posted from My Z10 via CB10

It's available for Verizon users (like me) still on the antiquated OS. Just click the link in Adam's article above and it'll take you right to AppWorld to download.

I've tried that about ten times now and still says not available. I will have to wait a little longer for it to push through.

Great app. My son has an S3 with Shazam and we've been testing them out. SoundHound is faster, but Shazam recognizes songs that SoundHound doesn't.

Via Zeppelin 10

Does this mean BlackBerry plans to delay the 10.1 update for the U.S. users? Why would this app update support 10.0, if everybody should be on 10.1?

Posted via CB10

Blackberry released 10.1. They are working on the next updates. US carriers need to release 10.1 but they are still "testing" it. If they don't release it in the next couple of weeks, blame them. It shouldn't take this long if all the carriers outside of the US can update almost immediately.

No update available for me, on Vodafone in the Netherlands

Edit: update now available :)

Posted via CB10

I can't believe we cared about Shazam. Bye bye Shazam you've been replaced on my devices. And always will be.

Posted via CB10

App works great, just wish when you click the buy link it would go to BlackBerry World .

Posted via CB10

Still can't clear the history and have to buy from Amazon. I want to buy from BlackBerry World

Posted via CB10

It said unavailable for my device when I clicked the link, but when I searched app world it came right up:)

Posted via CB10

I am also on Verizon and the link did not work. I just went to app world and did a search and it came up. I downloaded the app. Looks good.

Posted via CB10

Just got it on my Verizon z10 and it's working great. Shows how awesome apps can be when devs put time in for BlackBerry

Posted via CB10

Tried the link a few times with no success but searching directly in BlackBerry World paid off.

Posted via CB10

This is a very generous thing SoundHound did for BB10 users. Carriers not pushing updates? Ok let's remedy that. Huge. Support developers that support us.

How does a native app have a buy now feature that takes you to Amazon, a site that doesn't support Blackberry ? Why wouldn't it take us to Blackberry App World?

Posted via CB10

I still cannot get Sound Hound even after they claim it's available on 10.0 software. This is really frustrating. At least get Shazam back for those of us that cannot get Sound Hound. Still cannot get Skype nor can I get app for TD Bank nor can I get BBM Channels I can continue. I know they are just apps but if device supposedly supports it and I have Z10 then why can I not be able to have apps I need?

Posted via CB10

Poor baby, come to Momy :)
On a serious note, I am on 10.0 software on TMO and I got it by going the above link. So wait for sometime, it should appear for you also. Regarding BBM channels, it is in beta so just go and register yourself and then you can download immediately. For Skye, you can sideload till your carrier approves 10.1 OS.

I'm still waiting for the official 10.1 from T-Mobile, so this update update is nice... Now why can't Skype do the same?!

Opened BlackBerry World and it was the featured app. Downloaded fine. Shazam can now kiss my butt with their tongue out

Been testing Soundhound for a couple hours now.......FIVE STARS from me!!!!! love the feature where it recognizes the song and then scrolls the lyrics to it in real time like karaoke!!!!!! Killer App!!!!!!

Posted via the Super BlackBerry Z10

Got it on my Z10 (vzw)! Thought I'd miss Shazam but this is even better! I'll be buying SH for all my phones!

Me decepcionó, es raro que identifique una canción y generalmente menciona error de conexión. Nada que ver con Shazam

Posted via CB10

I thought I was going to have to wait forever to download Soundhound on my Verizon Z10. Never have I been so wrong :)

Posted via CB10

Finally got the update on my z10... works much better and smoother than the first release...

This app is awesome! I was reluctant about it thinking it was gonna be a shazam wannabe but I actually think it's a little better! I love the lyrics it gives u as the song is playing!!

My wife sang a lullaby to our daughter while feeding her, and it found it. Really cool.
