Starbucks App Pick of the Week: SoundHound ($6.99 Value) [Update]


The Starbucks App Pick of the Week is SoundHound, regularly priced as a $6.99 download in the App Store. SoundHound is like Shazam, as it enables users to quickly determine what song they are listening to, but the app takes it a bit further. It also displays song lyrics and includes singing and humming recognition. This full version of the app does not include banner ads, so if you love music you’re going to want to get this:

SoundHound is instant music search and discovery:
– The world’s FASTEST music recognition: name tunes playing from a speaker in as little as four seconds
– The world’s only viable singing and humming recognition
– LiveLyrics: see Lyrics in time with the music for over 1 Million tracks
– SoundHound Player: play your iTunes tracks with LiveLyrics and instantly link to artist info
– An included iPad app with beautiful, full-size lyrics and YouTube pages
– The ultimate SoundHound experience: premium features including exclusive Recommended Songs, and no banner ads!

Above are 8 promo codes you can redeem (if you’re fast enough). Thanks @MatthewSantoro!

    Ahh, you beat me to it this week. Damn Toronto shops are getting slow to put the cards out.

  • Lica

    Are these cards free at local Starbucks with purchase? I’ve never seen them when I get my drink.

  • We were waiting for you @swotam!! 😉

    I have used Soundhound for a long time now. It is infinitely better than Shazam! I like how their support team is very open to feedback and feature requests. You actually get a real human being responding, not some automated email and no follow ups.

  • Yes. They should be on display. Just ask if you don’t see them.

  • Holly

    you can also download these picks of the week in store, when you connect to the starbucks wifi. 🙂 i have some extra soundhound cards left if anyone needs. I am hoping to find wheres my water or drawsome 🙂
