What's New in Version 1.1.1
Minor bug fixes
I have tried so very hard to give this app a chance. It was, IIRC, originally linked to LyricWiki (and I believe it still is), a site to which I was and still am a contributor. Therefore, I'd actually say I'm biased towards this app instead of against. However, the search feature on this app is nearly impossible to navigate; for example, if you want to find a song title, you better know the artist performing that song and you better know exactly the format the program wants you to use (for the record, ArtistName:SongTitle, no space after the colon). What's more, there are artist pages I know I've personally updated on LyricWiki to contain complete albums of songs, yet they don't show up here at all. So either this app isn't linked to the wiki, or if it is it's doing an abysmal job of querying the servers for information. What's more, I listen to most of my music through apps other than the Apple Music app (for example, Prime Music), and this program refuses to interface with any of them.
TL;DR: this app is missing a lot and is clunky to use (at best). I, for one, am going to look for an alternative.
This app is amazing for finding the lyrics to that one song or even finding the title of a song with the "search lyrics" setting. There are however 1 minor flaw and 1 suggestion I have. The flaw is sometimes when you open up a song even with full bars it says "we can't find the song you are looking for" even when it's on the home screen. The suggestion I have is being able to save songs so you don't have to search them every time you need the lyrics. That would make the app much more convenient. That is all I could find other than that, Great App!
A great tool for musicians
This is much safer and more secure than searching for lyrics through various websites. Considering the copyright restrictions on lyrics this app does a great job of finding them. People seem to think that everything should be available. Databases can only be as good as the people that make them. The app is not perfect, but it does exactly what is advertised. And it does it very well.
