What's New in Version 5.8
• Connect to Spotify. Create a playlist directly from your SoundHound ID’s.
• Improved Twitter sharing reliability
• Bug Fixes
Does what its meant to do. Playing snippets of music into it, nearly always brings a positive result. Even singing or humming into works, but your pitch will need to be good to get a result. I like the fact that it shows you the lyrics to the song. This makes it possible to bring up the lyrics to a song, whilst the song intro is playing, just in time to then sing along to it.
