    Return User - Excellent App!

    So, my wife and I are music fiends; grew up on it, love most genres - well, except country but that’s for personal reasons no room to explain - whenever a song is played on a tv show or movie - or anywhere really - that catches our attention, we love to use our phones to find out who the artist is and song name. Well, we once used this app years ago; but as apps and space became an issue it sadly went away. Mainly because hey, “Siri has the same feature right?” Let me tell you this people: Siri has digressed in many ways since it’s period of amazing us. When Siri continues to take FOREVER to reply to the simple request of identifying the song - no, this is not a WiFi or network issue as most of you will agree - the song is OVER or the cutscene where the song is used is long gone and Siri still is identifying....well, we’ve had enough. This app is great, always has been. We are happy with its features and will NOT be using “you know who” for those requests anymore...or most other things these days...but that’s a different story. Great app keep up the good work developers!

    I LOVE Soundhound❣️ My husband introduced it to me about a year ago and I have used it to see who the artist of a song is, to see the lyrics on a song playing on the radio or my favorite TV Station “ Contemporary Christian Music”. It keeps a song I love on a playlist and can go back and listen to it again anytime I want to. There are so many things you can do and/or find out about a song, an artist, search for a song even if you only know part of the lyrics and it will 9out of 10 times find the name of the song and artist, I could go on and on about SoundHound it is my all time FAVORITE APP of all the millions you can get! My husband use to be my “SoundHound”. When I met him he was a DJ and knows who, what, when, where about most any song in any genre. Even though he knows so much about music he has SoundHound and loves it too. I figured he uses it to see if he is right about a song he heard. Again. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT❣️

    One of the best apps-hands down!

    I’ve been using SoundHound since 2011. Its probably the only app to maintained its status on all devices as well. Originally I used the other popular music ID app which (at the time) was totally 100% free. Although, very quickly paid upgrades emerged leaving the free end user restricted to a limited number of searches while being barraged w/ads & upgrades. By comparison, SoundHound is very straight forward, users are offered unlimited searches, a databank to save & favorite their search results, & purchase songs if they so choose. In 7yrs of using this app there’s been no lack of service. The SoundHound knowledge base has identified the most obscure songs playing in the background of tv commercials in NZ to instrumentals heard overhead in the health food store. Approx 10-12 of my searches resulted in no matches found, so the margin for error still exists but the gap is definitely narrowed.

    Fantastic music app

    This identification music app is super fast and very accurate. I’m good with music and can remember the tunes are lyrics but never remember the song name or artist, so this is perfect for me. It’s also fun to use if you’re out at a bar or sometimes with my parents a song will come on I just keep the phone on my lap activate SoundHound and then I know everything about this song, And they’re amazed I know so much about their old music. It’s great for the music industry also because if I hear a song while I’m out and want to buy it at least I will know what to search for otherwise you just hear the song and you’re not sure of the artist or name.

    Best app ever

    Me and my friends have been trying to find this song from a club for a year and half. We have one single video that is 4 seconds and we have been using every app out there to try to find this song. Nothing could detect it, but we discovered this app, and it recognized the song with only a 4 second video. This app saved my well being and saved me from going insane trying to find this song. I have been listening to it on repeat and say a prayer every day thanking the creators of this app. I’m planning on cooking a thanksgiving meal in honor of this app. THANK YOU FOR THIS BLESSING. Thank you, A desperate women
