Nice app for what it does, but more and more it's not recognizing songs without 2 or 3 tries and I'm not talking about in a noisy environment, but recorded music in a quiet room and I get pop-ups asking if someone is humming. No! It's recorded music! It's basically non functional. Couldn't find Watermelon Kisses? Really? My phone was right next to the speakers!

App couldn't find any of the songs it listened to. I downloaded another app and they found them right away. Also the app was open but I wasn't doing a search, or even using it, when the app kept saying it couldn't find words it had picked up from my conversation. I wasn't near the phone at the time. Invasive much?

As a music identification app it is fairly easy and accessible to use. However if the developers could add an option for related songs and artists, I believe that would be a usefull addition that would raise the star rating up from 4 to 5 stars. Other than that, great job and props to the developers for making a useful app for those of us out here that just need to know the name of that song/artist playing. 1 Love 1 Life.

What's new

Have you ever felt like you needed to add some personal thoughts to a song discovered with SoundHound? Well, now you can! We’ve added the ability to add tags, such as the mood the song brought on when you were listening to it or even notes that you may want to remember. Maybe a great song came on at your best friend's wedding, and a special moment happened that you don't want to forget; now you can create the memory for a lifetime.
