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.
I love this app. I've had it since it was free and got rid of it because it really didn't work. But now, this it's much better then shazam because it does more then just finds songs. And now since both apps are the same price, I would tell everyone to go for this app. I paid $0 and am getting all the updates. Shazam limited me to 5 searches a month to force me to get the paid app smh.
I listen to many types lot of music & this app is SUPER-FAST at accurately identifying any music. Love it when I'm watching a movie & wonder about a particular song. Takes about 1 sec to get info on the music piece, including lyrics, & a list of ways to either buy or just listen to the piece. Have had this app thru 3 ver of iPhones & this app always works; constantly improving. LOVE IT.
