What parents need to know

Parents need to know that MusicID with Lyrics is an app for identifying songs. There are no language filters, so songs whose titles contain strong language may show up in searches. The app does not work on first generation iPod Touches, and all iPod Touch users must attach an external microphone to use the "Identify" feature. Our review is based on the iPhone app; the Android app may have some differences in functionality.

Is it any good?

MUSICID with LYRICS is an app that helps people identify music tracks and easily add them to their iTunes music libraries. When a person hears an interesting track playing on the radio or at a club, she simply launches MusicID, presses a button, and holds up the device, and the app will do its best to identify the song. If the ID is successful, MusicID displays the song, artist, lyrics, and album title, plus album art, artist bio, links to associated videos on YouTube, similar songs, and a link to purchase the song through iTunes. Songs can also be searched for by typing in some of the lyrics. MusicID isn't always accurate, but it's still a handy tool for music lovers to have in their back pocket.
