It never ceases to amaze me that we can remember so many of the lyrics from the songs that we've grown up with. It's also quite interesting that we can relate many of those songs that mean so much to us in specific moments in our life. Whether it be our first date, a fantastic holiday memory, that trip to Glastonbury or our first love, music is an emotional and vital part of our lives. So it makes complete sense to bring that musicality into our texting life to illustrate the things that we want to say.

LyriText is a new keyboard texting app for iOS where you can express yourself (sorry Madonna and N.W.A.) with short segments of hit songs to get your true emotions across. For example, your opening greeting to a friend could be a musical sound-clip of Adele, Lionel Richie or The Beatles singing Hello or Hello Hello or your parting words could translate to Goodbye by Mary Hopkin, Bye Bye Bye by NSYNC, Ramble On by Led Zeppelin or Good Riddance by Green Day. It might not be a good idea to post Ceelo Green's F$#k You though.

Let's face it, pretty much anything that could ever be said has been put into a song at some point over the years. LyriText makes it easy to find those songs just by typing in a word or a phrase and you'll be able to see the songs that the algorithm has detected for you. If you know the song you are looking for it is even easier. You'll be able to see all the different versions of the phrase or word you are looking for and then you can insert it into your text for the recipient to hear.

LyriText adds a little something special to your communicating talents and makes your texting life far more interesting. You can quickly search, preview and select exactly what you want to say from the LyriText music database of your favorite artists via the easy to use keyboard. Once you've chosen the song phrase that best illustrates what you want to say, the app will automatically copy your selection right into the text conversation. The recipient will receive your message in both text and audio format. They just have to click on the red button to hear the music clip.

All songs features in LyriText are fully licensed and are the original versions of the songs made famous by the original artists. It's important to remember that music isn't free and requires a fee for licensing so there is a small charge of $2.99 for the app. However, you'll be pleased to know that there are no ads and no data selling . What's more, there's a 7 day free trial available right now so you can see what you are getting. One final thought came to me. It might by easier to play a sound-clip of Stevie Wonder's singing I Just Called To Say I Love You rather than actually texting the words. Just sayin.'
