What's New in Version 6.7.1
Bug fixes and LiveLyrics improvements for iPhone and Apple Watch.
Often prefer it to shazam has more indy and clasical artists
I do use both but my first move is to sound hound because they have not mad schlocky deals that allows sound hound to spy entire life habits Shazam is voluntary spying and that the try to market as value added. To be honest sound hound for a while did not due a ton of innovation but I did not mind because there service on point without a lot of extraneous bundling of capture TV viewership data or pushing On all the time listening. Sound hound is innovating now with useful features like their lyrics feature suite. I wish they might collaborate with Apple so with one button push could allow song or Album lyrics to be put conjoined into my itunes library. I hope sound hound continues to work towards privacy innovation and expanding their services that will give them the money and relationships to grow and do well while maintaining their current quality service. They can identify older or more aspirational singers eg sound cloud snd band camp. And i appreciate that let shazam be the more corporate intrusive service that wants to be basically a GPS enabled mic and camera as the more intrusive they get the less they I use them. So. Keep working on staying strong sound hound.

Awesome App!!! It finds songs even with a lot of back ground noise!! I am very pleased with Sound Hound!!
A review of the newest version...
I really hope the app stops bugging me about how much I really like it. There ya go right there; if I had to say any really negative thing about any app really it would be to stop asking how much you like it. I've already given a review on th is amazing app. I realize there are free versions of other song identifiers. I'm sticking to my ole dawg, SoundHound ©. ❗️‼️❗️‼️
Been using it, through multiple iterations, and it consistently gets the job done, and gets better with each revision. Only complaint - and its minor - would be to make some of the more common functions (return, favorite, etc.) easier to do while driving. When my phone is windshield-mounted it is sometimes too difficult to hit the tiny icons without taking eyes off the road.
