Nice Idea... Shame About The Execution...
Like the title says, the concept behind this app is a brilliant idea... Unfortunately it falls down when it comes to the app actually doing what it's supposed to... Don't get me wrong, the app appears to be stable enough, not once having ever crashed on me... & everything appears to function as it should... Except when it comes to actually I.D.ing tunes that is!
I would imagine that it might well be fine & dandy if you listen to a lot of daytime/local/commercial radio, have a penchant for eating at discount fried chicken outlets, wear tracksuit bottoms/trainers/brand name 'leisure wear' anywhere outside of a sports centre &/or your own bedroom & think that 'G-Unit' is haute couture - (For those of you too lazy to look it up, that means 'the height of fashion,' or ''totally sic brov, u no wot I'm sayin..? Doze jeans woz like wohhh blud! I gots to get me summadem. U get me...'
But I digress... :0P
Basically this app has been able to I.D. A grand total of two, yes, that's right, TWO whole tunes out of the thirty-odd to which it's sonic receptors have been aimed...
I wish so much that the developers would widen their scope beyond the current, very limited catalogue... I have tried several different styles & genres & I'm afraid it has come up empty handed pretty much every time...
The biggest invention ever!
I am a terrible singer but by humming the song this app has found the tune I so wanted to listen. Such a brilliant invention! Your are amazing technology, you are amazing 21st century! Peace all around the World please! x
Great app, fulfils its purpose well.
Only issue is that there can't be any other loud sounds and the music needs to be quite loud :(
But other than that love this app!
