Sony-owned content and data solutions provider Gracenote’s Gravity Mobile unit announced the launch of its MusicID application for Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch, promising a comprehensive music discovery guide enabling consumers to identify music, search lyrics and view artist biographies as well as purchase songs via iTunes. Users can search MusicID by inputting the artist or track name, lyrics or holding their mobile device to a nearby audio source–from there, Gravity Mobile supplies recommendations and links directly into the iTunes catalog, also delivering related content and information including YouTube video clips. Gravity Mobile adds that MusicID leverages Gracenote’s Global Media Database spanning more than 100 million tracks–Gracenote powers services including iTunes, Yahoo Music Jukebox and Winamp, along with mobile music applications from Samsung, Sony Ericsson, KDDI, KTF and Musiwave.
