"NanananaI've got it at the tip of my tongue!"

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.

    Just recently this started to happen, I would open the app and all I get is a black screen and doesn't open. Please fix.

    Really love the app and have purchased full version. The one thing I really miss, however, is being able to create a log-in so that my search history is properly stored and accessible, even if I have to restore phone or if I change phones. Have on more than one occasion lost my search history before I was able to locate songs on Spotify, to add to playlists, for example. 4 stars until that feat

    What happened in the latest update...? The widget just sits on listening... But it's not hearing anything... Cause that's all it does... Then eventually it crashes with app not responding.... Wait, close, report... Sick of doing this... Fix it please.... Thanks

    now, since the last update, it just spins and spins and spins. Completely dead. Nice work.

    It used to be that you pressed the icon and the music was searched for immediately. Now you must wait for the app to load then you must press the search button again. Now how is it different from the main app?

    I have problems finding songs that are anything but the most popular and current titles, the database is still very limited for the less mainstream and older titles. Shazam is still better for older titles.
