Great app, I've been using to see the lyrics for my fav songs for years. But the one issue I've seemed to consistently have is that it won't always suggest me lyrics based on what I'm listening to most times. It used to give me the lyrics all the time as a notification but nowadays it doesn't anymore except for a few select times it did work, I'm unsure if this has to do with app or maybe it's my phone? But it's definitely a small issue I've faced.

This app used to be solid and helpful. The problem is it is very off and on, some months and some years it works flawlessly identifying songs in seconds. Other times it can't identify anything, new or old. It will scan for a long time and then tell you it can't find it or hear it. Doesn't matter how loud or how much of the song is clear or how close the speaker is to the music it just DOES NOT WORK. Sorry to give it a bad review but also very much not sorry and feels justified.

Great for viewing song lyrics but even though I granted the app permissions to access my gallery, I can't save custom lyric cards. I can save any lyric card that uses one of the preset images for an artist, but can't use my own image for a card. I was really looking forward to this feature, but am disappointed at how poorly it was implemented.
