Been using this app for years and on every single iPhone I've had (every one from iPhone 3G to iPhone 6S+)This update is great. I'm not sure about the other reviews saying their search history disappeared after this update, mine is still there and looking better than ever with the new layout! I really love the new icon too! Great work! Thanks for keeping things fresh, adding new features occasionally and not messing with what works! These devs know how to manage an app! :)
I only use sound hound!
Of all the music discovery apps out there, the two main ones that come to my head is Shazam and sound hound. Of the two, I only used sound hound as I found it discovered music better and you could even sing the song and sound hound will find it. To me, sound hound is the best out there.
Best music identification app ever!!
Now with the inclusion of the voice recognition it's even better! I love this app! I've had songs stuck in my head, hummed the melody to sound hound and boom! I am incredibly satisfied with this app!
