    THIS WORKS GREAT! TRUST ME, YOU WANT TO TRY THIS!

    Okay ive been looking through the forums for awhile now and havent been able to find an app or anything usefull for veiwing lyrics on the ipod touch so i decided to look into this myself:
    I found this:

    WHAT YOU NEED:

    Okay so this is by far the easiest way to get lyrics on your ipod.
    its simple
    its easy
    its fast
    its worth it


    okay lets get started....

    1. Open up iTunes
    2. download the iTunes Friend application onto your computer (link above)
    3. Once iTunes Friend is finish installing, simply run the program and select "automaticaly find lyrics for all itunes songs"
    4. iTunes Friend will now find tbhe lyrics to almost all your iTunes songs (i only had 4 that it didnt find but i added those from another program)
    5. The process is verrrry fast, for ex. i had about 500 songs in itunes and it found the 496 in about 3-5 mins
    6. Once that is done, all you have to do is re-synce your ipod/iphone with that list
    7. Then just go onto the standard music player on your device, play a song, and tap the album artwork, the lyrics should pop up and you can scroll up and down at your free will

    Lyrics not ALWAYS found or correct, but about 90% of the time they are



    [HELP NEEDED PLEASE]
    I have an 1G iPod Touch Jailbroken with the 2.2 firmware. this is the only device/firmware i have tried this on
    any information about other devices and/or firmwares this works with
    i also am unaware weather this works with PwnPlayer or not
    Should cause no problems to itunes or your device so this process is risk-free!

    [EDIT] BTW the iTunes Friend found every single song i got through itunes and MOST of the ones i got through another app or music player ect. For the songs that iTunes Friend does not find the lyrics to, simply right click the song, press get info, go to the lyrics tab, then go online and find your lyrics and copy n' paste em to the lyrics tab in the get info of the song.

    [UPDATE]
    I ALSO FOUND OUT THIS WORKS ON THE IPOD NANO 1G AND THE IPOD VIDEO 1G, SO IM ASSUMING IT WORKS ON ALL IPODS+IPHONE AND ANY FIRMWARE!!! YAYA

    Sounds very interesting. I'll give it a whirl and report back. I normally use TuneWiki on jailbreak, but thats iPod Touch localised. Cheers for the tut.

    Thanks! It worked perfect for me. It is indeed pretty fast; It took anywhere from one to three seconds to find the lyrics for each song.

    One thing I noticed is that it retrieved the incorrect lyrics for a handful of the songs.

    Thanks again.
