I really don't know what to say. By the time it gets done "polishing the records and dusting off the shelves," my sound clip pl is usually gone. It used to start searching almost instantly, but now the program seems to take forever to load even with the widget. The ability to find obscure and rare song says turned lackluster. Even songs that used to identify or no longer recognized. What happened?

In 2017 the app had a hard time giving me results. It has improved since then, but still slightly lagging behind the other big app. Currently the 4x1 widget does not work for instant capture. It only opens the app like a shortcut. I am on Lineage 18 with Android 11. I have not yet contacted the dev for this issue. Also, when the app opens and the capture button is tapped, it uses a VERY BRIGHT ORANGE BACKGROUND WHICH IS BLINDING AT NIGHT. Stop that...

Not fit for its intended purpose. Typically you're starting the app while the song is already playing, so it's important for this app to load quickly. But it loads slowly - sometimes too slowly to catch any part of the song. And when it does happen to load in time, 8-9 times out of 10 it cannot recognize or identify the song.

What's new

Some of our favorite songs are:

“Bug a Boo” - Destiny’s Child
“Bugs” - Pearl Jam
“June Bug” - Melvins
“Stink Bug” - Beastie Boys
“Lovebug” - Jonas Brothers

Our least favorite things are bugs. We got rid of some and made additional improvements.
