Song Lyrics Formatting Lost
PinoyJim on 8/16/2017
I use this app to display the lyrics from music that is playing. The lyrics used to be formatted karaoke style and if not in their database, a search function is provided. Choosing the website will display lyrics in text format. This no longer works. Default appears to display the lyrics in one paragraph making it virtually useless.

Great app gets tha job done when that one song come on and u wanna find out wat it is ... give this app 5⭐️
Love this app
thehumanwolf on 8/12/2017
It's always been reliable than Shazam, especially with classical and low volume circumstances. However, I wish there was an Amazon Music option along with all the other multitude of choices like; Google Music, Pandora, Spotify and others...
Amazing! I strongly recommend using it.
Golden_Shadow7 on 8/12/2017
This app has helped me find the name to every song I wanted over the radio and it's super simple to use just with the press of a button it hears the music and than tells you not only the song and artist name but also a lot of info about the artist and their top hits and much more. I highly recommend this app to anybody that hears those songs on the radio or wherever and just think I wish I knew the name of this but you just couldn't figure it out, well this app will help you in every one of those situations.
Awesome

Sometimes I wonder how I learned music it's artist before soundhound 😂
Awesomeness
Randy4500 on 8/10/2017
I am terrible at remembering who sings what, or what song is this. This app has turned me onto all of my favorite music!! When I'm listening to the radio and find a song I like, you can save the tune in your history an buy it later!!!! I've turned a lot of my friends onto this app and not one has come back to me with a better one. This app is total awesomeness!!!!
Over 5 years! A must have app
Heliogirl15 on 8/9/2017
I have not had a smart phone that didn't have this app on it! It is very rare for SoundHound not to know the song, I use it all the time. I use it to find songs and to keep them to look up later. SoundHound can sync to ITunes however if you subscribe to Apple Music it doesn't recognize it, but that is a small price for what SoundHound can do!
By definition a scam.
CeeL Cappelletty on 8/9/2017
This is called "scamming"… Stop lying to people to take their money… It's called a scam… Literally what you're doing is illegal… I can prove that you're aware of the bug… And have been for six months at least … You're scamming people when you make a post such as this: "What's New June be 20 2017" "We make regular updates to fix bugs and improve performance" Your app has continually gone down for the past year… I have complained for six months that I paid for an app that does not do you what it claims to do… You have replied me several times so I know you're aware of it and in your reply you claim that you are working on it… Lyrics…disappear… Fix it! Or give us that PAID our money back!
Love it!
78'Z28Camaro on 8/9/2017
I love SoundHound! My best app next to the ones that actually play music. I don't know how I'd find all my music without this app.
Great

Fantastic App!
DJDaveJay2K10 on 8/5/2017
I love this app, it recognizes almost every song.
App is not very smart
Mjust65492 on 8/5/2017
The last several songs I have "listened" to have been unknown by thus app. These were popular songs such as Life's Been Good to Me by Joe Walsh. Have had the same problem with other songs from that genre and era. I do not recommend this app for anything. Time to look for a new song identifier app!

Me gusta... lo recomiendo 🔟
This app does NOT have a wide database of songs. You will waste time if you are looking for oldies.
JaJuan Meeks on 8/3/2017
This app is not good. I attempted to hum a song in multiple ways for about 30 mins straight because I thought it was my humming that through the app off, but I then experimented with another song that I know the name of and stated the lyrics clearly and it still didn't work.. I don't take this app serious... You guys need to either update the variety of songs that can be searched or make the voice recognized better because I have the iPhone 7 Plus so I'm not sure it was my phone with the issues.
Thank you Soundhound
Loai nabil on 8/2/2017
Thanks for understanding my humming and helping me find the tune I was looking for where other apps failed me!
Very good
Analog gibes on 8/2/2017
Awesome app but the latest update broke the lyrics feature. Lyrics now display as one continuous text.
Color of the app
0000222 on 7/30/2017
I really think you guys should change this black color and orange combination app icon, it's very disturbing.
Best Way to Find That Song Stuck In Your Head!
Fast Coach on 7/29/2017
You hear a song, can't put a finger on the title or artist but NEED to know now? Here is the app to win that bet, prove a point or just be the "music expert" in your gang. I use this app at least once a day to try and find the right song for my evolving collection. Try it and become the music fan with more than a passing interest in all things sound.
Best ever!! It totally works!!
Marlelopez on 7/28/2017
Honestly i was trying to find the name of this song i heard at work and i couldnt find it! Not even on shazam until i hummed some part of the song n it worked!!! Its crazy good!!
Song not playing
2hearts76 on 7/26/2017
Hi I like the app and was trying to contact customer support but one of the albums I selected is not playing? It skips? Was just trying to get some assistance. Thxs
The best music app just keeps getting better
Jgpapa01235684268 on 7/25/2017
This app is a must have for any one! But for those of us that have been breathing for a long time and love a wide range of music it's essential ❤️👍

This is awesome I love this app I give it 5 star
Surprised how accurate it is!
Offchris on 7/23/2017
I always hate when I hear a new song on the radio that I like while I'm on the road and I had to guess what the song is. With this app, I do not have to worry about that anymore! Works perfectly!
5 ⭐️ deserved
Jojdkendjf on 7/23/2017
I have looked up well over 30 different songs and soundhound found them all perfectly with out any complications!!
Sucking it!!
steveiez on 7/22/2017
I used to love this app and raved over it as way better than Shazam, but now it always says not connected even though I have wifi access. On works at home. Boo!
Tried contacting support but link does not work
crystal c on 7/22/2017
My app keeps crashing. When I go into the history of pending searches it fails. I used to love SoundHound. Please fix
Works well, but needs update.
Ддгои on 7/21/2017
If not connected to wifi while listening to a song, the app/device will pull up the "choose a wireless network" pop-up, which causes the app to lose all progress made listening to a song. Therefore, every time opening Sound Hound to listen to a song while using cellular data requires you to press the listen button twice.
Help
Zabrina z on 7/20/2017
What's the song playing when you download SoundHound app
Best app purchase
Jennablurr on 7/19/2017
Not only can this app pic up on small bits of a song, but you can buy the song on iTunes in a flash. Songs played during movies or at the end of a tv show-- SoundHound identifies the song & sooooo much more.
I love Sound Hound!!!!!!
asfgtfhjiufgjk on 7/17/2017
You will not be disappointed. I have used this app for years and not one negative thing!
I love it

This is great 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Awsome bossome on 7/17/2017
I love this app. It tells me song names I don't even know. I found out my favorite songs name because of this app.
BEST MUSIC APP I have used!
herekitykity on 7/17/2017
Soundhound continues to impress me. The latest addition that I love the most is that if you link it to your Apple Music it will automatically add it to a play list. Totally still worth it to have the free version, but highly suggest buying the app; you will not regret it. Millions of thumbs up! Thank you Soundhound for being so awesome.

Love that this app recognizes songs and will put them on a Spotify playlist!!!
Lovin It!
Devildowg on 7/17/2017
What a great app! Songs I've been mumbling through all my life now have meaning (or not, if the lyrics don't make sense). Point is I can now see exactly what the artist wrote and I'm re-enjoying songs I've known all my life. Love the karaoke feature (turning my IPhone sideways). Well done!
Favorite app!
TurtleLou2 on 7/16/2017
Someone talked me into getting this app. I really didn't think I would use it much. But I use it all the time. I absolutely love it!
Great App!!
Ralylark on 7/16/2017
This app is planned well and has all the amenities of a $12.00 App Store purchase and it's free. I love it! Perfect!
Love this app

Use all the time
Great app
lmc5000 on 7/16/2017
So easy to use, and always gets a song that I am wondering about. Also, I love that I can favorite a song so that I can download it later.
Not too baddddd

Actually like the app seems pretty cool
I love you I love you I love you

Great App!
Lucy Starr on 7/15/2017
I've been using this app for years and it does a great job identifying music. Even does a pretty good job when there's background noise.
Can't live without

Live for this app! Love it goes straight to Spotify too!
