Great with Apple watch
This has been an awesome app for a music lover like me but with a poor memory for titles or artists. I also love the convenience of quickly tapping my apple watch for identifying a song without digging out the phone and missing the song or tune because I'm too slow. I also like to review my history to decide if I want to purchase past songs or explore more music by an artist. This is also very convenient. Very useful app!
The fact that you can hum a song and it can find it is next level. However I've gotten a few "There were no close matches" messages while listening to an actual song. It might just be that the library isn't that big yet. But you CAN save that recording for later in case that song is added at a later date, which is very cool.
Outstanding the best of its kind!!
For months I was being told that Siri could do the same. By the time Siri pulls up the song and links, it's already showing song, artists, featuring, preview of the song, video to play if there is one, iTunes and each album that the song is on. Very fast and accurate
