Hound is instant music search with your voice: speak it, get it.

If you love the famously fast music recognition in the SoundHound App, you're also going to love Hound: now you can just say the name of a song or band you already know to get instant gratification:
♪ Lyrics
♪ Song previews and full length videos
♪ Artist top songs, tour dates, and bios
♪ Instant sharing to Twitter and Facebook
♪ A full interactive iPod player to power your own library with lyrics and artist links
♪ NEW full screen lyrics: go landscape on a song or player page see big, beautiful lyrics

Hound will revolutionize the way you search for music. No need to type or tap, just hound it. It's easy:

- Tap the Hound button.
- Speak immediately and clearly, into your iPhone's microphone (bottom of device or through mic-enabled headsets on iPods). You can say a song and artist like “Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars." Or you can just say a band's name or a song title: “Mumford & Sons” or "Fall for You."
- After speaking, tap the Hound button again.
- (Power user tip for even faster response: you can also press and hold the Hound button, speak, and then release the button.)

Hound can be your "wow" voice search app:
- When your best friend or favorite DJ tells you about a band and you need to know more: just say the band's name to get their tour dates and bio, or say a song's name to grab those lyrics you missed or buy the track on iTunes.
- When you need instant sharing to Facebook or Twitter: just say the name of a band or song then tap the big "share" button.
- When you want to play a song that you have on your iPhone: just say the song and artist name, then tap the iPod icon that appears on the song page and you'll be listening to the song within seconds.

Thank you for downloading and using Hound, a free, ad-supported app. We are growing our database daily and we love feedback. If we don't seem to have a song or artist you're looking for, or if you have any other suggestions, please let us know through email at

Killer app

Does music searches so fast. Just say it and bam. No need to Google it, Hound it faster with insanely joyful results. Used it to quickly find a song to see lyrics and artist info. Got faster results when pressing and holding the search button down while speaking. It's like SoundHound in reverse. You know the song and want the info and content.


This app is awesome. Forget the main advertised feature of telling it song--who cares about that?! Try playing your music through its interface with iTunes. It pulls up the lyrics and advances as the song turn your device to landscape to see karaoke style display. It's just too cool.

I just don't get it...

Why would they release a stripped down version of an already free app? SoundHound is a much better version of this app and has the exact same feature of searching + the ability to scan played music while you're listening to it, no need to "make a mental note". I think it's a waste of time. If anyone is even considering this app, just go and download SoundHound for free, it's the much better version of the same app at the same price... Free.
