How to make iPhone show lyrics of played songs

The music player in iOS have the capability of showing lyrics of the tracks being listened to. Yet to use the feature, one must embed lyrics into MP3 files before transferring them onto iPhone. This can be done using taghycardia, a highly automated program for fixing music metadata.

Download taghycardia here, then run. In the appearing configuration dialog, choose "general MP3 autotagging/tag diagnostics" or, if you also want the program to fetch cover images for your music collection, "to download cover art for your MP3 library automatically".

Then press the ellipsis button at the top left of the main window to choose the folder of mp3 album you are going to transfer to your iOS device. After that, press [Go] button to process the album.

The program will show its tag diagnosis for the folder. Find the line beginning with the word "Lyrics" in the diagnosis. If it says "NOT present", then double click the line to make program find the lyrics for you automatically.

After the program finds the lyrics, press [Update in Tags] button to write the lyrics into your MP3 files.

Now you are ready to upload the album to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch complete with embedded lyrics.

To display the lyrics of a played song on an iPhone, just tap the cover image of the album you are listening to.
