SongPop 1 is a head-to-head music trivia game. The free app was released in May 2012 by FreshPlanet, a venture-backed, NYC–based startup. It is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, and Facebook. By 2015, the app had been downloaded 100 million times.
The game is played much like the popular TV show Name That Tune. After selecting a themed playlist, five songs are played. Players compete against each other to be the first to select the correct song title or artist from a choice of four. iTunes links are provided for each song. In SongPop 2, users can play alone for the first time, competing against a computer-controlled opponent.

SongPop asks players to choose the name of a song or the artist of the song, with a four option multiple choice interface. The faster a player guesses, the more points they get. Players can remove two songs by using song note chips.
SongPop 1 was awarded Best Facebook Game 2012, Social Gaming People's Voice Winner 2013, and Best Online Game 2013 by the British Academy Games Awards.
