SoundHound‘s mobile apps let you identify music with your phone. Hear a song on the radio and want to know who sings it? Just fire up the SoundHound app, hold your phone up to the music, and within a few seconds, the app should have an ID for you. It’s pretty awesome, especially for a free app. The only problem is that the free version of SoundHound was limited to five music IDs each month… until now.

Last week SoundHound announced that users of its free apps for Android, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch can now identify as many songs as they like without ponying up any cash. The app also shows artist info, lyrics, and song previews.

The only catch is that the free app is still ad-supported, but if that bothers you, you can still pay $4.99 for the ad-free SoundHound Infinity app.

SoundHound is available for download from the Android Market and the App Store.
