Won't update, has become unreliable on two different Android devices. Has vanished from Play Store for a couple of periods recently. Has also temporarily vanished from 'my apps' for a couple of occasions, in spite of it being installed. Sometimes doesn't identify tunes it's identified previously. A shame, it *was* a damned good app, but the latest problems don't inspire confidence. Tried contacting Tunepal via their FB page, no response.

Well a bit of a waste of money. Doesn't work. Why does it need user location to identify a tune? Weirdly, the button asking to grant additional permissions before the app will work, it doesn't do anything and worse, persists on the screen after the app is closed down.

Doesn't recognise any traditional tunes from the radio, comes back with names that are not associated with Ireland, more like Hungarian style tunes, not remotely like the tune I was expecting. Not even the tempo is right, for example gives slow airs instead of reels and jigs. I've tried it a few times during the past few years but it never worked. Update, it gave Guzzle Together for the Carraroe Jig.
