There are already a number of apps that let you identify a song simply by holding up your phone’s microphone to the audio source. SoundHound and Shazam are probably the biggest names in this relatively new music discovery business. But once you identify the song, then what happens? Sure, you could shell out some cash to buy that song that was playing during last night’s episode of Glee. But that’s about it.

Limili is a new app for iOS that doesn’t just let you purchase music after you’ve identified it. Limili works with subscription-based streaming music services so that you can automatically add a song to your playlist.

The limili app works with Grooveshark, Spotify, Rhapsody,, We7,, iTunes, and YouTube.

The app costs $1.99, but after you’ve paid up, you can use it as much as you like to identify audible music or search for songs by title and artist. You can also post songs on Facebook. Limili clearly needs an internet connection to do its thing, but it works over WiFi, 3G, or Edge data connections.
