What's New in Version 3.1.0
In this release we've made more improvements to our audio search feature, powered by Gracenote. Now the button for audio search is front and center in the app tab bar, so you can find the lyrics to the song you're listening to more quickly. Your profile page has moved to the top left of the screen. We've also added support for Spotlight and Handoff, so you can find your favorite songs and artists right from Spotlight search, and continue reading them when you move to your Mac or iPad. The song metadata page also got a boost, and now includes information about samples and remixes.
The convenience of this app is great. I haven't had any problems with the app, and it does what you need it to do. Also, when I'm playing music it automatically detects what song I'm playing and it is so easy to get to the lyrics. Usually I google "(songname) genius" on Google, look for the right link, and then click it. Now all I have to do is open the app and it is right there. Great stuff.
Nothing but love 💖
I've never had any major problems with the app. I rely on this app every time I listen to music just to fully understand what exactly I'm listening too. I also love that they've added articles and stories to the main page! One of the best apps for any music lover and especially a fan of rap and hip hop! 🙏🏻
This is a great app, and it's really nice to see annotated lyrics. However, the feature that allows you to see the lyrics of the song you're playing is broken for me. 75% of the time, no matter what the song is, it gives me the lyrics to Calvin Harris's "Bounce" (not exactly the most lyrically dense song). It's quite annnoying, so if you could fix that, this would be a 5 star app.
