What's New in Version 8.4
Bug fixes and improvements
Amazingly Useful Music Resource
Versatile music utility that adds so much to listening to music. Mostly I use it for identifying tunes and for the amazing scrolling realtime lyrics! But, it's ability to cross between music services and lookup and link other resources about a song or artist I'm interested makes this a go to app for me. Thanks to the developers for years of behind the scenes upgrades and improvements too! This one is worth paying for.
Always on the mark!
I can always depend on SoundHound to identify the song I hear playing, even in some very noisy environments when I don’t think it’ll have a chance. And I LOVE the improvement they made in a recent release that loads the app much faster and let’s it start working right away so I don’t risk missing identifying the song that’s playing even if it’s near the end. Thanks!
Shazam way better
Takes forever to load so by the time it is ready to listen, the song you’re trying to catch it over. Also, half the time it doesn’t even recognize the song. I was using Shazam and somehow this app downloads itself onto my phone. I had no idea where Shazam went so I thought maybe the company changed names. No idea how they did it. Not happy with app. Found Shazam moved from first page of my iPhone to last page. Switching back. Compare for yourself.
