    "The meaning behind the music"

    THE VERDICT

    If you're as much of a lyrics fiend as I am, then you'll definitely be familiar with Genius, which started out as a site specializing in interpreting rap and hip-hop lyrics and has since expanded to all genres. The app is a faithful rendition of the spirit and utility of the site, offering curated interpretations and behind-the-scenes info on each track. There's a heavy emphasis on recent tunes, but you'll find goodies on the classics as well. The app also lets you stream the tracks either from Soundcloud or YouTube.

    THE PROS

    The sheer volume of curated info means you'll learn something new every time you look up a track. The design is solid and simple to use.

    THE CONS

    When a track streams through YouTube, it takes up the entire screen, rendering you unable to simultaneously check out the lyrics. Annoying.
