Possible idea for an app?

    I was thinking maybe someone could make an App that had a Library of Lyrics on it. That why, you could have the lyrics, without wifi and without the need of a computer to add them onto your songs every-time.

    You'd just bring out the touch and sing with your favorite song! Whadda say?

    So you want the library to have the lyrics to... every song?

    Oh crap! Imagine singers like me pulling out your iPhone and singing, oh crap.

    anywho, back to the thread,
    maybe not an app, but how about a little tactile feedback on top of the visual when hitting the keyboard for all the naysayers who cant live without their golf ball IBM.

    We might be able to do it with a 2048Gig Touch ;-)

    Hmm.... Your right. It would require a TON of memory..... It sounds like a cool app though!

    I was hoping for it so I wouldn't have to have WIFI, oh well! :cool:

    A "TON" really? Have you worked it out?

    Let's assume you sing fast, 100 words per minutes. Words are on average five characters each One byte per charater in English two if you need to include chineese or Arabic, so we are up to 1000 byes per minute Assume a 5 minute song. We are at 5KB per song if you had 1,000 songs it would all fit in 5 megabytes or if you prefer 0.005 gigabytes. But then all songs are not rap and most are shorter then five minutes and compression does better then two to one with text.

    OK, I forgot you want fancy formatting and fonts and so on. Then My estimate is off by a factor of ten if you want PDF files. So it is now at 0.05G it you have 1,000 songs

    Actually it's a trivial amount of storage.

    why the double post?

    and I think he wants to have every song have lyrics. Meaning any and every song ever. and that would take up a fair amount of space.

    I don't think you guys understand what I wanted in this app.

    I wanted a Library of lyrics. Like http://www.elyrics.com? Something like that. Where everysong has lyrics. You can look up any and every songs lyrics, and put it on to a Touch.
