    I've been googling like crazy. I want an app that will display lyrics to the song im listening to live like a karaoke system. I've only found things available from the installer.app. Anyone know of a company (I'd pay) making a lyric app? Thanks

    Unfortunately, with the current state of the official SDK, apple will not allow developers access to the ipod library database on the phone, so it looks like you are out of luck by the means of an official solution(as of right now).

    There's a dashboard widget (I forget the name) that searches for lyrics when you play a song on your computer and has an option to save them as information to that song in your iTunes library. When you sync the song, the lyrics go with it and can show up on your iPod/iPhone. Hope that helps. :)

    The OP was talking about a karaoke application, as opposed to an application that finds lyrics of sounds.

    Unfortunately, the SDK won't even allow the retrieval of song names in the iTunes library (that is why TTR can't get our list of songs...)
