SoundHound Us The Best
I looked at several apps that can be used to identify songs and provide lyrics. However, hands down SoundHound by far is the best overall technologically as well as practical and friendly interface. I find it very easy to use and it quickly identifies songs. I would recommend getting the purchased version since it is well worth it.
While this is not sound hounds problem, I do wish that more lyrics were included in their library. I understand that it's the legalese that get in the way of SoundHound publishing more lyrics than they do. However, I hope they continue to work towards rectifying this and making improvements.
I use this all the time!!!
I get a lot of use out of this app and would gladly pay the price for the version without adverts, IF they were any extras that are not in the free version. But I couldn't see anything extra in the paid version. I highly recommend this to any music lover. It recognizes music from tv shows, obviously the radio, or if I just hum/sing into the microphone. I love that the lyrics appear and move along with the song. Also brings up videos. One of my favorite uses if I hear a song in a film I like and want to buy it, Sound Hound recognizes it. One of the "must have" apps if you love music and especially those "one hit wonders" when you forget the name!
The best App on my Phone
This is absolutely the best app out there. It seems like other Apps just get you hooked and then they change. Not for the better this is the only one that just gets better and better. I have PTSD and my memory is really bad but SoundHound keeps me in touch thank you so much it's like having my memory back. And the amazing part is you can do all of this and you haven't raise the prices just so cool considering everything else has gone up except for pay. My hats off to you.
