It works. If you're looking for a simple widget to identity music, then this is the widget for you. It is simple and it works. Like all the other apps out there, it doesn't always find everything. If you're looking for a feature filled app, this is not for you. But, lets be honest, the reason you get SoundHound, Shazam or Sound Search is to do one thing and one thing. It is a minimalist widget designed to only identify music and buy it if you wish. One feature I would like to see is the option to play music through All Access for those who are subscribed to it. If that feature is implemented I will happily give it a 5.
Just alright. There are a few issues. There needs to be an app icon in the drawer. Sometimes if i tag a song multiple times (one immediately after the other) i will get matched to different copies of the same track in the play store. For instance on the original album and then a greatest hits album. It also needs larger matching catalog. Often can't match songs not in database. And lastly a feature request. Lyrics. Either added/embedded directly into the app or play store, or as a link to a third party service.
Great Song Identifier & Sound Widget This has to be the fastest and best music id app I have ever used. I love music and when I hear a song I dont know its usually at the end of the song or in a crowded place and in the past always miss it. But this app has changed all that. I sometimes only need to hold it up for 3 seconds and its done - SONG FOUND! Its great both in low sound and crowded areas. Again, very pleased about Sound Search ^_^
Good, but could be better. The widget works with search to add music search when Google Search detects music playing. Simply touch the musical note that appears and GPSS begins listening. The only thing I find lacking with the widget is a history. If I hear a song I like, but I'm too busy with something else (like driving) I just want it recorded in a search history for later review. Rating: 4 stars, will up to 5 when a history is added.
All Access integration needed Works very well, I've ditched Shazam. Just needs proper integration for All Access subscribers. If I identify a song it'd be great to be able to go straight to it in the Play Music app (rather than the Play store!). Maybe this could just be an option. It'd also be nice for the track *not* to start playing immediately, most of the time I just want to add it to my library/playlist for listening later!
Works well, but missing one feature I use this app regularly and successfully to identify a song playing in my car. The only problem I have is when I've found a song and want to listen to it later. The only way to access the sound history is to open the widget on your phone. I use Google Play Music to listen to songs, but I can't find my sound search history on the internet or on another device. Please add this and ideally integrate it right into the Play Music player.
First Play store release.
