I have never written a review on any application before. When the new year comes I always used to hear that wonderful music which I had no clue about its name like everywhere. Today I went to a new year banquet and heard that music again so I decided to record that music lol. Soundhound said it was 'Snow storm-Waltz' by Sviridov and I was skeptic abt it first. Then I listened to it and almost cried out of joy. The answer I searched for years provided in just a few seconds. Totally appreciate the app and recommend it to everyone.
I played some obscure anime soundtracks and live versions of popular songs to compare the two apps and found that Soundhound recognized more songs than the competitor. In fact, it wasn't stumped on a single one. Shazam, though a very strong app, had trouble finding some of the correct music information. As far as I can tell, Soundhiund is the best music recognition software and Shazam us a close second.
Best app. But had problem a little. It happen on this new year, the history reset altough I already login with my account before. To bad my song search for a year has been gone and doesn't have a chance to email backup.
Sound detection is too rigid and doesn't take alternate versions (for example, a piano song has to be the recording of THAT piano song, not anyone else playing it) and other features just don't work. Also, if this app keeps sending useless notifications, I'm going to uninstall it.
The app its self is great. But started notifying me it was recording my surroudings on its own , up to 15 to 17 minutes at a time. After the 4th time, i have nothing to hide but that isnt right. So i deleted the app. To bad used it alot. When click to agree , its in the agreement. Sucks ! Great app.
Used to love the app, I could transfer all new music to my spotify playlist with the touch of a button. Now it won't connect to Spotify at all. I get an error code 4046 saying Lost Connection. Incredibly annoying as I cannot even move the music over now that I'm not driving. Thought the update would fix it, it did not.
