It’s the most wonderful time of the year to crank up the jingle bell-inspired jams and celebrate the season while sipping nog and decorating your tree. Let two of our favorite music apps help you get into the holiday spirit by using your smartphone as your music player!
Although many holiday tunes are timeless, how often have you been watching a festive film and find yourself struggling to name that tune playing in the background of a particular scene? Instead of pausing the flick to Google lyrics and hope the search produces a song title, I open SoundHound on my Sprint smartphone and the app recognizes songs in as few as four seconds. It’s also a great app to have on hand at holiday parties, where current versions of classics are often played. SoundHound helps you identify whether it is Michael Buble or Frank Sinatra singing “Ave Maria” in such situations.

Help your friends and family get into the holiday spirit by setting up Christmas ringback tones from Sprint Music Plus. Have you ever wondered how people you call set up songs to play while you wait for them to answer their phones? Those are ringback tones (different from a ringtone, which plays when someone calls you) and we have several jolly jingles to entertain your callers from artists such as The Temptations, Mannheim Steamroller and Chris Brown.
