Lets you wax lyrical with your favourite tunes and internet radio
by on October 15, 2010
Forget poetry, sometimes song lyrics can come with a huge amount of pathos and resonance that you will listen to that song again and again and maybe even quote its verses to a loved one. But that’s enough talking about the Venga Boys, as the problem with song lyrics are that they are sometimes misconstrued.
So if you are one of those folks who still sing “a kiss from a rose on the grave” (it’s gray dagnammit) you need TuneWiki.
TuneWiki offers up the lyrics to your music archive so you can sing along to the music. Just not on the tube as we would all rather just stare at each other in silence than have someone sing MmmBop into our ear.
The app is very simple to use. You can load up your music archive within it and start singing along to the lyrics of a track, or you can load up a YouTube video which will have the lyrics stapled to it.
It’s good fun, though don’t expect an animated ball helping you through the cadence of the tune – this is a simple highlighting of a line when it needs to be sung.
You can also boot up web radio through the app, courtesy of Shoutcast and log into Last.fm as well.
There is also a community you can join but you have to remember that the people signing up really like singing. It sounds like an X-Factor styled hell to us, but the option is there for you to make friends through the music you sing.
TuneWiki has had something of a makeover, adding a whole bundle of new features to the app. these include the ability to access music streaming apps, the ability to synch the app to a desktop and access to Lyric Legend – a rhythm game that is reviewed elsewhere on this very site.
