Soundhound used to be awesome. It would detect songs quickly, with minimal effort, wherever you were. Recently, I have been noticing that even in the car, putting the phone next to the speaker, at high volume, it gives you the "We Couldn't Find This One". I understand a few times, but not every single time. It sucks because I loved this app and was amazed that even in a loud bar, like Flanigan's, it use to be able to detect the song within seconds.

I loved capturing songs, instrumental and vocal, from snipits I heard on the radio when I started using SoundHound, I have been using it for years, and I forgave them for not having the older an eclectic material you hear on college radio and I was optimistic that their ability to identify jazz would improve. I misplaced those thoughts - I am looking to other apps now because identification of materials in those two categories has NOT improved.
