Love the app, no complaints. Only one suggestion: the app is starting to get a bit 'crowded', try and keep it simple. We dont need it to do everything but walk the dog for us, we just want fast, reliable music info when we need it, and you already provide that beautifully. Especially for those that arent tech savvy and need ease of use, your app gets 5 stars in that category alone. In other words; "Dont try and fix what isnt broke", Its awsome how it is!
Latest update – cannot share through social media
After installing the latest update, I can no longer share a songs through social media – Facebook or Twitter – any song I am listening to. The Player icon (the headphones) used to bring up the embedded song data on the song I was currently planning. Now it only allows me to play a song from online or from my local playlist. I see no other way to share a song to Facebook or Twitter.
The most idiot app ever!
I downloaded this app to be able to find out about a song my friend shared. I didn't need to download it I could organize search the name of the song and the singer but I need the right version of the song. The link my friend sent me first took me to SoundHound then to Hound. Somehow I ended up downloading both apps yet still the link didn't open to the page of the song to show me the song. If sharing doesn't work on this app what is this app for?!! Seriously is that a joke?! Go to Shazam!!! Don't waste your time with this one.
