What's New in Version 6.7.1
Bug fixes and LiveLyrics improvements for iPhone and Apple Watch.
I hardly ever actually take the time to write a review for an app, but Soundhound deserves it. It's one of my most useful apps & I'm blown away by its performance. The design is easy to figure out & use, and it launches fast, which comes in handy when you need to search for a song quick. Not to mention, it works great. Even when I hear a song on bad speakers or at a party with tons of laughing noisy people, the mic still picks up the music through the static or background noise and finds the song for me. Another feature that comes in handy is that it saves your song recordings to search later, when you don't have data or wi-fi. I also particularly like the "Singers Born Today" section on the Discovery tab, it's really neat. Five stars definitely. This app never disappoints or fails to amaze me!
Better than Shazam!
Soundhound can recognize a song with a fragment of a song, it's great. I had a 10 second clip of a song and this app told me the name of the song and Shazam couldn't. The only thing that is frustrating about this app; the only reason it has 3 stars instead of 5 is because the artist that are known on this app have to be really well known artist, I mean really well known because one of my favorite artists can't be found in app at all. And yes he isn't as famous as some other artist but I think he is well known enough to be part of the list of artist in the Soundhound app. Once I can find artists that aren't as really really well known as others I'll be sure to give this app 5 stars.
Love this app.
I have used it to find artists of my favorite songs of long ago. Just recently I found the artist to a song I used to sing to my daughter when she was a newborn 28 years ago. I heard it on an classics radio station, pulled up the app, which found the title of the song and artist instantly. From the app I was able to located on iTunes to buy, then download it and play it for my daughter. I've been using the app for four years now and it's never let me down.
