Customer Reviews

It was fun while it lasted!

This app no longer functions as it has in the past, it's lost much of its powerful ability while adding new features that no one will use.

Just in case your interested I personally will not use this app at all in its present state,
And I paid for the original version, so it's my loss but the new features just add frustration!

One feature I miss is the ability to play tracks from my own library, unless I'm mistaken this is no longer possible, or or at the very least extremely difficult you must first make a playlist and even then difficult to access the change you want to hear you stand it into a radio app which I don't need!
Please prove me wrong! If I am right and that feature is gone then I'm guessing it's so that people will pay for the radio/online access services to hear music I already have previously purchased!
Good luck!

Annoying Moving Icon

This app is absolute trash anymore, don't waste your money. Still haven't fixed the IRRITATING issue with the SoundHound button moving from the center of the screen to the top the first time you press it. Also went to the the club last night, soundhounded a bunch of good songs, only to wake up this morning and see that soundhound didn't even save the music I found last night. Thanks for nothing soundhound, finally done with this app.

Love my SoundHound app!!!

I love that whenever I hear a song I like I can always get the name of the song and the artist. I honestly believe that, at least, the last 10 songs I've bought are thanks to SoundHound. You won't regret getting this app.
