I'd be lost!!
I'd be hopelessly lost if I didn't have this app! This is the best app you could ever get to find out about music, find music, listen to ur music on, and to get lyrics for all and any music ever! If you want to know a song playing on the radio u just tap the big orange button to listen to the radio and it almost immediately finds and shows the lyrics up to date for that song!! An awesome amazing app to have. Once u have it u will never ever delete it from ur device!! A definite must have app for any music lover!!! U won't regret getting it!!
Compared to similar apps, SoundHound recognizes songs faster and better. It allows me to identify the music by humming, singing or playing a part of the song and in my tests, it discovered 9 out of 10. Impressive!
Ability to show lyrics, preview the song and some social networking elements are some of its advantages. It saves a history of song searches and gives a swift and effective way to find unknown music.
Thanks for the Classic option!
Thanks so much for adding an option to have the Classic Home Screen (with the huge listen button)!
I use SoundHound all the time, and the method it uses to identify songs is more powerful and accurate than Shazam. It can identify a song even when it's not the actual music, for example if you're humming it.
