    For many of us, music is a huge thing in our lives. It’s why we’ve started carrying our music around in our phones. But, what is music when you can’t enjoy it with your friends? SoundTracking now makes it possible.

    Through SoundTracking, you can share your favorite tunes with your friends on Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare. SoundTracking, a simple to use app for iOS and Android, also lets you attach photos and locations to the songs.

    One of the nifty features of the app is its music recognition capabilities–pretty much like SoundHound or Shazam. Just a few taps on your phone, and SoundTracking will try to identify what that song playing on your phone is, or what that sound playing on the CD player is. SoundTracking’s Music Search allows you to search for songs by title or artist. Have you ever had the problem of hearing a song on the radio but not being able to catch its name? Music ID solves that problem by identifying the music being played in your vicinity, especially when it’s on a speaker. My Songs allows you to pick songs from your local media library.

    Another thing about SoundTracking that many users might like is that it’s free. Without having to pay a cent to use SoundTracking, you can share any song that you like, whether it’s locally stored on your phone, a song being played near you, or one that you only remember by its title or artist.

    Before you can start sharing to your friends on Facebook, Foursquare and Twitter, you have to authorize SoundTracking. Once you’re logged in, you can find the tabs for Recent Posts, Trending Posts, Notifications, and your Profile info on SoundTracking’s homescreen.

    When you’d like to start sharing music, simply tap on the music note icon in the top right corner of the screen and pick any of the three options.

    You can choose to attach a custom photo to the song you’d like to share, too, or you can just stick with its album art. Add a location to it, as well as a brief description.

    To check out what’s hot among other music lovers, tap on Trending. Let your friends know how you feel about their music posts by tapping Like or Love and commenting on your friends’ posts. If you like someone’s musical tastes, follow them–it’s almost like Twitter with music.

    Have you been using SoundTracking? If not, go get it from the Android Market.
