Used to be great now unusable

I just want to open sound hound and find out what song is playing and save that in history.

Now it comes up with some unexitable demo about how to play songs with speech recognition. Wants you to sign-up. Keeps prompting things, plays Justin Bieber songs.

I just want the one function that it used to have, that now I can't even find where it is. This is the most important function and the only reason to have the app. It should be extremely easy to reach so it's no brainer in the car to catch the song before it's over.

Helps me when my brain fails me

I hate hearing a song, knowing what it is but can I name it... that’s when SoundHound rarely lets me down.

Brilliant. Thank you Soundhound.

Awesome

Had the app forever and I love it, it has so many great features such as real time lyrics! Forget Shazam - SoundHound is much better.
