Always Reliable

wkw47

The older I get, the more I want to remember old songs. Not because they are old, but because there is some phrase, some idea that I want to remember how it was precisely sung. This app has been my ‘go to’ when I need to hear those lyrics and tunes again or identify a new song I want to know. It’s the displayed lyrics that separates this app from others and that it’s always upgraded to keep up with competitive app’s. This one is great and very reliable. Why change?

Amazingly Useful Music Resource

BB-Ex

Versatile music utility that adds so much to listening to music. Mostly I use it for identifying tunes and for the amazing scrolling realtime lyrics! But, it's ability to cross between music services and lookup and link other resources about a song or artist I'm interested makes this a go to app for me. Thanks to the developers for years of behind the scenes upgrades and improvements too! This one is worth paying for.

Always on the mark!

I can always depend on SoundHound to identify the song I hear playing, even in some very noisy environments when I don’t think it’ll have a chance. And I LOVE the improvement they made in a recent release that loads the app much faster and let’s it start working right away so I don’t risk missing identifying the song that’s playing even if it’s near the end. Thanks!
