What's New in Version 7.1.5
Minor bug fixes
While I rely on SoundHound to help me identify music from disparate sources, especially video "credit rolls," I've always been perplexed by the UI. Sometimes lyrics will show up automatically that strolls along with the recordings, other times it needs to be selected as an option, or sometimes it doesn't show up at all! Sometimes album artwork shows, and other times not! The interface is just disjointed and inconsistent with advertisement paths showing up looking exactly like part of the interface. It's like there needs to be an "operators manual" for this otherwise very useful app.
I'd be happy to pay a buck or two to get a "deluxe" version that's better designed, is visually easier to navigate with a more consistent UI. As it is now, every time I use SoundHound it's like a new learning experience.
Rid the 'Added to Favs' pop up
Love the app, except the in-your-face "Added to Favorites" notification. It stops me dead in my tracks. If I couldn't see the star fill in, maybe would need notification...but, the star tells the story. Great app besides!
No Limit To Searches!
I love that this app does not limit you to five searches per month like Shazam does.
