New update not so good
Just updated the app. While I thought the old app was great as it was simple to use and worked well, the new app is awful in my opinion. There is so much clutter on the app you cannot even tell how to get it to identify a song.... Which is what I thought it was for
Too much adVertising and other junk on the home page.
Hey...how about a simple button that you can read that says 'identify the song that is playing'.
I got this app when it first came out and ever since then I've been using it constantly looking up Lyric's and all that. I think it is outstanding and it keeps getting better and better.. this is a must get app if your Into music this is a must get app.

Sound Hound is wonderful!
Love this app. All you have to do is say a song and it will play it for you and newer songs even have the lyrics so you can sing along. Thank you Sound Hound!
