    We need to tap on the SoundHound icon
    .
    It's an orange box with the letter "S", which is made of two spheres cut in half. This will open SoundHound. Once we're in SoundHound, we're going to have to sing or hum to find the song. We can do this at home, the bathroom, the closet, anywhere we want. We don't need to embarrassingly sing in front of our family or friends.

    SoundHound knows what song was being hummed, Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
    .
    So far, that's 2 out of 2 that the SoundHound application has successfully guessed. Obviously, if we're humming something more complicated, such as a heavy metal song, rap song, rock 'n' roll, or a classical song, it might have a little more difficulty and we might have to hum better than we might normally hum a song. However, it is a great tool and a fantastic way to figure out what song we've had stuck in our head all day and couldn't quite remember the name of.
