SoundHound is a mobile app that’s used widely for identifying and tagging a tune that’s playing at the moment of speaking, or for recognizing a song sang or hummed by the user. SoundHound is available in a free version and an add-free upgrade – SoundHound ~ for US $5.99. SoundHound is present on the market since 2009. My focus in this post will be directed to the current version that I’m using – SoundHound 6.5.0b-29937 Android Version.

Shazam is present since 1999 and has changed and evolved a lot through the years. I won’t focus on it’s history, but on the current version that I’m using – Shazam 5.3.3 Android Version.

The passwords are encrypted locally and are cross-browser synchronized. LastPass uses form filler which automatically fills the forms. It [...]
Swarm is the new app by Foursquare, the app where they moved the check-in feature. It’s an app that connects you with your friends and enables you to see who’s nearby or who wants to meet up later. The app is a result of the rebranding and renovating Foursquare. Foursquare split into two apps. Foursquare was the app that used to help you pick a place to go and help you keep up with friends, see where they’re checked-in or see a tip they left.
It seems like every user that loved Foursquare thinks of Swarm as an unnecessary confusion. Me for example, as a loyal longtime user, I still can’t get over the terrible decision they made to split Swarm off from [...]
