SoundHound recognizes the song is playing or you're humming.
This is not the first application that attempts to recognize the songs that sound around. But it is the first to get it well and really fast. A few seconds are enough to give you the information in a very comprehensive: album, lyrics, artist, whatever, everything.
We've made the first test with a song of a well known Finnish group, moving the phone closer to a baffle. Four seconds later we had the song's name, group, album, year and lyrics. Then we decided to increase the difficulty, humming a song to the phone instead. We picked "When the saints go marchin' in". We had to try it twice because everybody was laughing around, but at the end SoundHound decided that was Louis Armstrong's who was humumuming so bad.
You can also check a title or band name out by making searches speaking and read biographies. Also if you want to, your location is saved along your request, so you can remember where you heard this or that song. Finally, you can redefine controls to start recording pressing a hardware button instead of tapping the screen.
This paid version hasn't ads and helps its developer. In any case, unlimited use and results have been very satisfactory. It has become an instantly must-have.

Thank you! Kindly help to improve smoothness for scrolling on home page
Takes longer time to open up the app with each new update and with the ugly splash screen added it takes even more time. What's the point of trying to find out the song you're listening to when the app takes such a long time to start up?
Can you please get Android Wear integration?
Good for when you hear that hot song but don't know the name, when you're on the go.
Love the app a lot, but the 1x1 ID Now widget is missing from my widget options after switching from the DROID Turbo to the HTC One M8. Only the 4x1 shows now. But still works great!
I don't know whats going on. But it crashes.
Thank you soundhound for fixing the proper I will be careful with facebook for now on that was the problem when I log into my new account with Facebook which I didn't want a new account first place it cost me to start a new account with soundhound this is when I lost my history the soundhound fix the problem this app is great for musician, people doing music research and people who just love musi
