If you're only downloading this to look at the lyrics, then it's perfectly passable. However, in almost every way the website is better. With the app, you can't edit the lyrics, titles, or album tracklists or metadata, and it lags. I also didn't see a way to add a song, though I wasn't looking for it. On top of that there's a couple little things, such as the number of views not appearing alongside the songs as you're searching them. It's not terrible, but the website is so much more convenient.

it's ok... when it works. freezes right when it opens about 70% of the time. also constantly pushing content I don't want and hiding the features I do want. if simple, easy search and recently viewed tracks/albums were the only thing on the home page it would be perfect. but they obviously don't care about ease of use, they just want to push all the other bs.

I got this app back in June and it worked fine on my phone. The app was fast, responsive, and loaded lyrics just fine. Now, the app freezes constantly and crashes way too much. I thought it was because of the phone I had, but other users with high end devices also have this problem. Whenever I want to play a song from the lyrics, it plays for about 10 seconds then crashes, so please fix it...
