The most useful feature this app HAD was that it could detect the song you were playing and suggest lyrics on the app's main screen. You also had the additional option to have it suggest lyrics in your notification shade. I like the option to have the main screen suggest lyrics without the notification to prevent clutter, but this option appears to have been removed for some reason, and you have to have the persistent notification. Why? The option was there before and has now been arbitrarily removed. Am I missing something?
I can now watch videos, listen, n read the wealth of knowledge that is rap genius...for free, exactly how it should be. To charge would discredit rap genius from being a "for the people" type organization, in my opinion . Especially since music lovers, run, and thrive off of passion not making money. Thx, i love all my people rap genius for their hard work!
I love the app. Especially the fact that it combines Shazam features and enhances them with its added feature list. However, one thing I found in the latest update is that once you've updated, all the lyrics you saved for viewing offline are discarded. If that could be fixed, I would give it 5 star
Knew Genius from the browser version, always used it so wanted to give it a go on my cell. Installed it and crashed as soon as I was trying to open the app. Reinstalled, kept on crashing. Needless to say, but I'm still going to say it; worthless.
It's genius! But flawed. The song identifier is really dismal as it takes a long time for the song to be identified. There is no "songs identified" history page to look back too. If I wanted to find a song played on the radio a few hours before, it's gone.
I loved it... until a recent update, which erased all my saved songs! 🙁 This is a real shame. I would otherwise give it a higher rating. Search works well. YouTube play hasn't worked well for me, but it's a neat feature when it works. Please fix an otherwise awesome app!
Thank you for using Genius! We've been hard at work making the app better for you. Here's what's new in this release:
- An improved profile screen
- Article search
- Bug fixes and other improvements
Free music player for SoundCloud gives you instant access to millions of songs!
