"ID Now" feature is great! Big fan of this app. Has a great feature in ID Now - automatically starts to identify the song after just touching app, making it easy to unobtrusively ID a song when you're busy with other things (conversations, studying, etc). I think there's a hands-off mode too, but haven't used it myself. The app stores all your recent search entries in a library, for easy viewing later. Also will store snippets of song to ID later on, if you don't have access to the internet at that exact moment. Pretty great app!
Recognition is mediocre, connecting to the music is worse I often try to use this app to identify music which I don't recognize and it frequently gives me the wrong song. I'd peg my success at maybe 60% finding the right song for stuff that isn't on the radio. I can understand not being able to find every song all the time. However, sometimes it finds the right song but when I use the link to connect to the play store it connects me to the wrong song: not even the song it identified. Very frustrating.
Too Slow! Was great when it first came out, my old phones were way slower yet it was "listening" in seconds, now it seems to take an eternity to "listen", too much loading in the homepage, I'm not interested in this app doing anything else other than identifying unknown songs.
When it works it's really great The new voice recognition feature is horrible. It will prompt me out of nowhere. Really screws with my enjoyment of this app. PLEASE ADD A TOGGLE OF SOME SORT TO TURN OFF VOICE ACTIVATION FEATURES!
What is that song? This app saves me so much grief when my husband and I hear a song and cannot think of the title. Sound hound gives you all the info you need instantly.
Hounds Down, The Best 99.9% of the time, this ole hound sniffs out the correct song & artist. Only a couple times it went down the wrong trail. The people on my tour bus love it when I play the oldies....
