More than an App, This stops fights and arguments!

This app has helped my marrage, we no longer argue about the words to a song. Thanks.
The only thing I would ask is…. When we run into an INCORRECT lyrics version and the Search does not pull up the correct lyrics. In this case please allow the search to go out on the internet so we can find the correct lyrics.

Pretty nice when it can find what I’m listening to.

I didn’t think my music was “That” obscure, but the app seems to have an impossible time trying to find lyrics for a good portion of my favorite tracks. Perhaps it needs more lyric sources? It’d be cool if it could pull from genius or dark lyrics or something similar. Many of my heavy metal tracks are unknown to lyricsX but Get Lyrical can find them. So I am assuming it’s probably the lyric sources and not nessarily anything wrong with the app.

little to improve

Love the app and really really appreciate it. However I have a few requests:

1) Please offer an option for "universal" offset... all songs sync normally off by 2 sec. to start
2) Would appreciate option to choose which display to show lyrics on. Would rather have one display dedicated for lyrics rather than mirror entire desktop to secondary display ('Karoke mode').
3) Offer more sources for lyric search (international)

For the rest is quite impressive. Maybe also make the search window resizable. At present is only about 5-6 lines and cannot be enlarged to show more results without scrolling.
