You can put Lyrics in ID3 tags. Or some subset thereof.

I tried using this and it didn’t find anything. So I checked out top40db, and it’s giving a message that it’s overloaded and maxed out. Guess a lot of people have downloaded this app? Will try again later…

The plot thickens. Now it appears that has been shut down by the administrators. Does anybody know what is going on with this?

Now don’t get me wrong, because I love the way this app is shaping up… However it doesn’t find songs very well. Like, really really common songs and it doesn’t find them. Like I have a fair few beatles tracks, only one of them worked. It couldnt find, Yesterday, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Yellow Submarine.

It does find some songs though, it just seems that it can’t be putting the info into the search engine very well, otherwise it would find more.

You guys should download the LyricTracker client. That works pretty well and it has iPod support.

Tried iLyric 0.7 and I think it’s great! It found 24 of the 32 songs I searched for (little slow searching maybee).
One annoying thing (especially in slow songs) is that you have to scroll the wheel on the iPod to prevent it from returning to the “play-screen” after some seconds…

Is it impossible to make the lyrics scroll automaticly with the song…? Couldn’t such information be stored in the file?

unless the iPod is able to mysteriously scroll on its own(which it cant)

Back in 2003 I had an MP3 CD player called the SlimX made by iRiver and it came with a program that allowed you to view the lyrics for the next 10 seconds.

The only problem with it was that you had to find the lyrics yourself and set the timing for when you wanted the lyrics to be shown.
To give you an idea as to how long 1 song took to set the lyrics and the timing… well… lets just say it took the better part of 10 minutes to manually configure it.
Not worth it.

However that WAS about 3 years ago… hopefully someone can come up with a program that can incorporate lyric programming for ipods.
Who knows?
