Some of the most amazing apps today are using much more than just the touchscreen, but actually adding information from your phone’s mic to understand where you are and what you’re doing.

SoundTracking

I love how this app combines social networking, location/check-ins and music. I love using it when I’m at a restaurant and a song is playing that I don’t know – the built-in music ID function figures out the artist/title, and lets me share it to my friends.

IntoNow from Yahoo

You know you’ve got your phone out when you’re watching TV anyway, so I dare you to download this app and use it when you’re on your couch. You’ll be amazed how well it can discover what show you’re watching – even if it’s a live event!

SoundHound + hands-free with “OK Hound” | Search, Discover and Play Music

Just the best music discovery app, ever. I also love how the free version still lets you keep a history of every song you’ve discovered, so you can go back and add them to your collection!
