SoundHound Infinity Is Free Today In Amazon’s Appstore

Amazon continues the promotion of its new Appstore. Today’s free premium app is SoundHound Infinity (usually $4.99).

Like the more commonly known, Shazam, SoundHound allows users to tag songs. However, unlike Shazam, it’s also able to figure out a song if you hum or sing it. Say you’re listening to a song on the radio–all you’d have to do is activate SoundHound. After a few seconds, it will tell you what the song is, as well as provide relevant links and sound clips. It happens to also be much faster than Shazam.

The free version of SoundHound already offers unlimited free tagging (unlike the free version of Shazam), but with Infinity, you also get a homescreen widget for quick tagging along with an ad-free experience. The devs behind the app are also promising more awesome features in 2011. That makes having the premium version a no-brainer, especially considering today’s unbeatable price.

Check out the Amazon Appstore for the deal… SoundHound Infinity

      Yep, you’re right. I downloaded and installed the “free” version of SoundHound Infinity, then checked AppBrain to see if there was an update available. There is, and you have to pay to get it.

      The AMZ App Store has its own update functionality, but no updates to the SoundHound app are listed there. That means that either 1) this is a useless deal or 2) AMZ’s running behind on app versions. Neither of those are good conclusions.

        No need to start a conspiracy theory…

        1. Of course you have to pay for it if you search in AppBrain or the Market. Apps downloaded from the Amazon Appstore don’t have “Market Links.” That means to AppBrain and the Market, it’s as if you don’t have it. Appstore purchases are heavily tied to Amazon (i.e. if you uninstall the Appstore, some of, if not all those apps won’t work).

        2. It makes sense that there’s no update for SoundHound in the Appstore yet. In order for an update to appear, the dev has to upload it. In the Market, you can publish stuff at your leisure. However, with Amazon, who knows what process the update has to go through once submitted? Perhaps it just takes a bit of time due to their extra security measures. It’s really not that big of a deal.

        A few days ago Amazon offered Shazam Encore. Guess what? It’s the same version that’s currently available on the Market. So clearly they’re not offering old versions of apps. And even if you are a few days late getting updates–the app was free, dude! If you care so much, you can always pay for it in the Market. Just saying…

    What I learned from Shazam was that once you get over the cool factor you hardly use the app afterwards.
