An app that allows you to listen to music or hum a song on your smartphone and search for the name of the song is useful when you say, ``I've heard the song before, but I can't remember the name!'', but it's also useful when you say, ``I don't know what song that phrase I vaguely remember is...'' `` Hachichao Search '' is an iOS app that allows you to search for song titles by playing the melody on the keyboard displayed on your iPhone or iPad.

Tap 'Install' from 'Free' and start the app by 'Open'.

The top page looks like this, with a keyboard that can be tapped at the bottom of the screen.

When you touch the keyboard, musical notes will be displayed in katakana at the top of the screen. It doesn't matter the key or rhythm, just type in the melody. A song title search starts with four melodies, and you can also search with just a single phrase, such as 'From B melody' or 'Chorus only.'

You can erase notes one by one by tapping the triangle on the top right...

Tap the triangle with a line below it to clear all input.

When I tried entering the melody of '

Tulip ', the fourth song I was looking for was displayed. It references a melody database of approximately 30,000 songs and displays many other songs with similar melodies, so there is a possibility that you may find something unexpected.

When you find the song you were looking for, tap the speaker under 'Preview' to play the melody, or tap the note to get the 'score'.

The browser will then launch and display some sheet music for the song. Tap the song title of the sheet music you want to obtain...
