search speed equal to google
I'm only giving this app a second star because I've had soundcloud on my phone for a year or so, rarely using it but needed for a music buff like myself- The last few times I've tried to use this app; by the time it opens and loads, the song is over. I'd be better off getting a two cassette tape deck boom box and recording a clip to manually search for by lyric. The volume is sufficient and the vocals clear. Apparently this app needs to hear the entire song to search for it- when it's a small audio clip or commercial song you don't have time to wait for this to load just OPENING! That was originally the whole point of this I thought, the ability to run in open this app and find a song clip quick. I might better google the lyrics I can decipher. I'm sure it'll take longer but I won't want to smash my phone when it says 'no results could be found.' feck you sound hound I'm officially uninstalling this failing forward app finally and hope the developers work on the search speed and maybe expand they're catalog. Go back to the version you had two years ago- app is awful
Much better than it used to be. This is a wonderful app to find out who's singing or even the name of the song. I love that it keeps my history for when I want to buy songs later I have a list of the songs I liked. Thanks for having the ability to connect to different apps as well. ALSO following the song with live lyrics is SO smart!! ❤️
Absolutely the best music recognition app!
Soundhound can easily find most song even just from humming or singing. It also searches by author and lyrics. Once you find your song you can nearly store it in your favorites and all searches are saved in your history. This app is a must have for everybody! ...unless you dislike music, in which case I dislike you.
