Lyrics importer for itunes / iphone – my new toy project

03Feb08

I am one of those annoying  ” sing along ” types when I listen to music . Since the new iphone  update  added lyrics capability to iphone i was looking for an easy way to add lyrics to my tracks .  After hours of googling ..surprisingly I couldnt find a single decent  app to do that.

So I’ve decided to roll my own app to do that ..

Application basically  queries iTunes for tracks ( 5 at a time ) and hits few lyrics apis to fetch the lyrics ,

I’ve found two such apis till now ,

  1.   http://www.leoslyrics.com/ [ This one also give you alternate suggestions if it cannot find exact match ]
  2. http://lyricwiki.org/Main_Page  [ Gives you exact matches only ]

I’ve not created any installers yet for either windows or mac ( hoping to do that soon ) and ui is also rough . Hopefully , I can get to those in few days.
