Ever found yourself listening to a catchy song in a restaurant or a club or a starbucks or at any place and you would like to find out more about the song right away. You don't have access to the PC at that moment and so you cannot. Eventually, you will forget about the song. Even if you do remember the song, you will not remember the exact words any more.

Now, this problem is solved. You can simply SMS 411Sync (415-676-8397) to figure out the song details. This includes the song title, artist name and the album name. You can also point your mobile phone browser to "http://411sync.com" and find out this information.

411Sync has a mobile search keyword called "rhapsody". Simply use this keyword and provide a few words from the song. Within a few seconds you will get the details.

If you use WAP, you can a find out a lot more information like:

1) Pricing of CD that has this song. The price comparison info is obtained using the Yahoo Shopping API

2) Find out more CD pricing information from Nextag (using the Nextag RSS feeds)

3) Find out used CD information from eBay (using the eBay API).

4) Find out more about the CD from Google Base

We realize that typing on a mobile phone can be painful. All your searches are stored in history. You can rerun them without retyping them.


SMS 415-676-8397 with body "rhapsody pour some sugar". SImilarly, you can try this from http://411sync.com

SMS 415-676-8397 with body "rhapsody i love your smile".

You can also try all these searches from a PC. This is what the results would look like:


This mashup involves the following APIs:

1) Rhapsody API

2) 411Sync Mobile API

3) Yahoo Shopping API

4) eBay API

5) Nextag RSS Feeds

6) Google Base API
