Sound hound is a top app
It works very well on nearly every song (given that your not in to some really underground music), as they have a large database of songs. Great app, nice interface and smooth operation. I recommend it. '7/7 m8' - IGN
This is an amazing app when it works, but ever since updating and switching to a new phone I can't use the microphone to detect songs, and am told to 'Enable Microphone'. Yet there is no option to do this in Settings. Please fix ASAP!
Does it cost money???
Like shazam, most of these websites scam and takes money so I wanna know if it does
