Simply the best.
After using Shazam for awhile and trying Soundhound out, I am absolutely amazed. One time I was listening to my own music and I clicked Soundhound, lo and behold it already knows what I'm listening to! And shows me the lyrics that are being sung in real time, what?! Then I start scrolling through the lyrics. Just to see what would happen I double tap and BAM the song skips back to those lyrics, I was blown away. Another time I had this song stuck I my head but I didn't remember the lyrics. I took Soundhound out and hummed them, not expecting it to actually work. To my surprise it came up with exactly the song I was looking for! I'm simply flabbergasted. I deleted Shazam instantly, it's nothing in comparison. Shazam is to Soundhound as Internet explorer is to google chrome. Do yourself a favor and download Soundhound, I'm literally not even joking.
Allows podcast start time!!!
I can't believe it! With the big ios update last year I now had to download the stupid podcast app from apple to play my dj running podcasts and eventhough itunes allows for start times my iphone can't remember them so I am left trying to find the song within the podcast that I want while literally while on the run. So annoying. This app fixes that by remembering the start times that you program into itunes. Hooray! Great features. Wish I had known this a year ago.
The one and only improvement I can think of is:
Please make it possible to show repeat Searches in the history section. I have about 750 searches but no idea if I've already searches a song before.
