I have had SoundHound for over a year and just loved it until recently. It recognized every song except a couple on TV shows. Then recently it only gets about half of the songs I try for. Recently I got a song with Shazam and went into SoundHound to see if it would get the same song. I had already bought it on iTunes so as soon as I opened SoundHound the song was already playing and the lyrics were right there for me to sing along. But when I tried to tag the song, it could not identify it! It also takes longer to identify songs it does recognize. I will keep using it for the lyrics feature and for the fact that it stores my songs so I can easily access those lyrics for my faves but I am using Shazam to tag songs now.
Please remove the "hits" compilations!
I absolutely love SoundHound, but I am really tired of trying to search for a song and finding it on a compilation or hits album, instead of the actual album that came from! Please remove all of these compilation albums so that we can get actual results from the artists themselves and album it was from, rather than some cheesy compilation album!!! I'm also not a fan of greatest hits albums, because then you don't know the original album the song was from. Thank you!
Still My Favorite
I've been using this since the App Store first launched (back then it was called Midomi). I've tried many other ones but Soundhound still is the best in my books. In addition, the details in the app (like caching the audio capture when I don't have a signal and processing it later) make this the best experience too.
