This app could be good but the #1 problem besides the search being horrendous, is that sometimes the app just keeps taking me out of the app into the App Store for some advertisement no matter where I tap. Even when I don’t tap anything and I’m just reading, it’ll take me out of the app to some ad app.
Also, the way it doesn’t sort songs in any meaningful way makes it a pain to get to the right song from an artist’s page, forcing you to use the horrendous search
Half baked 2/5
The iMessage app would be a dope feature it it works. It worked when the app first released and now it’s like they diss owned it.
Laggy and doesn’t function properly 1/5
By Nico 21
It’s laggy and doesn’t function properly on iOS 11 on my iPhone 7 Plus. Please fix soon
Horrible issue 1/5
Horrible issue where you play a song through Spotify or Apple Music and you go to read the lyrics for the song you’re listening to then all of a sudden the song pauses because the ads within the app try to start playing themselves which stops your music. Then when you swipe up to resume your song instead of your songs name it just says “genius” because the phone thinks you want to keep playing the advertisement. Stop shoving the ads down our throats, it’s disgusting. Fix this
Dude this app was great absolutely loved it, used it constantly. Now there are intrusive ads that redirect straight to the app store? Hell no my guy I ain't one. Uninstalled leaving this review. I get that there needs to be ads but that's annoying and too much.
Anyone else that feels the same I'd recommend musixmatch. It doesnt break down the lyrics but they're there and on the plus it syncs the lyrics to the song you're playing.
Helps me learn the lyrics to my favorite songs
Trashy app version 1/5
Every time that you're trying to look for something it will re direct you to Apple Store to download a stupid game
Slow and crashes 2/5
The app is great except that it's super slow and crashes a ton.
Endless adds 1/5
Continuously opens the App Store to nonsense mobile games.
iMessage app crashes 1/5
I can't search lyrics to Rick roll my friends anymore because the app keeps crashing.
Needs bug fix 1/5
Used to be a solid app. Now crashes, freezes, and lags everytime I open it.
Non-Stop Pop Ups 1/5
Love the website so I was excited to discover an app, but geeez... it literally takes me to the App Store every time I open it. And then, once I close out of the App Store and go back to the app, it takes me right back to the App Store. It's not functional for me at all.
Best lyric app 1/5
I love this app
Please fix lag problems
Recently has been crashing 1/5
It used to work perfectly, but lately it just crashes every time I try to use it. :(
Update Problems? 1/5
By Lil Lo Da Goat
App has been extremely slow, crashes, and is practically unusable lately
Was Good 1/5
The most recent update has made it impossible to use the app while listening to music because of the ads which pauses your music. You can't even use the control panel to play it again because the ads replaces it there. Another tip would be to let us swipe up on the "Now Playing."
Good, but not every lyric is explained 4/5
Great for most songs..biggest problem is that sometimes, some lyrics aren't explained
Great App 5/5
By Rak Knight
Awesome and the genre diversity is also a plus
Keeps crashing in iMessage 1/5
Everytime I go to search it crashes in iMessage, every single time. The last update made it work again, but then it crashed everytime after
Pauses music 1/5
A lyric app that has video ads which pause your music. A little counter intuitive.
Freezes way too much 1/5
The best app 5/5
I love the new video tab! And search!
Good but can't view song comments 2/5
It's agitating how one must either go to the mobile website or desktop to see song comments now at the bottom of a song's page. Android version still has it. No 5 stars until it's brought back.
I literally can never use the app. It is so extremely slow, it freezes all the time and crashes way too often.
Ads ads ads ads 1/5
The worst app on my phone. I don't know when this happened to the app but I'm on iPhone 7 and I can't use the app without my App Store opening up 6 or 7 times in a row, all showcasing me different games like slots to download. I can't view lyrics
terrible experience 1/5
lags and hangs all the time then crashes.
Honestly really great no complaints, I love it when I don't know a song it will automatically pick up the song and is super accurate
By Poptart the Unicorn
Before the update, the app was a 4 star at most. There were minor crashes and slow loading even when I had full bars. But now I can barely touch the screen without an ad loading onto my screen. Literally every second. I HATE ADS.
I like it! (Almost) 4/5
The only thing that I would like the app to have, is the song information(music producer, mixing engineer, support singer parts etc.) other than that 10/10!
Easy to use and just a good as website 5/5
I enjoy using Genius to find lyrics and sometimes even post them. Having the app handy on my iPhone or iPad is nice when my Mac is not near me or I'm on the go. I can quickly look up songs.
It would be nice though if the search bar allowed for me to switch off between typing lyrics in to find a song I don't know versus typing the name of a specific song I am looking for. This way the results would be more relevant to my needs.
Crashes so much. Can't even look up lyrics.
Normally, a great app but... 1/5
Normally this is a great app but, ever since I updated it, it crashes and doesn't even let me look anything up or hit anything on the screen. Before this update, the app was working fine and I would have given the app a 4 or 5 star review, but due to the constant crashes, I'm a bit unsatisfied by the app and hoping for another update to fix this glitch
Best lyric app 5/5
To call it an app is an understatement. It's a community of music lovers coming together to help each other sing their favorite songs! (And learn the meaning)
I love it all of it
Y'all really need to look into whoever is writing yall's lyrics, most of them are incorrect
filled with errors 1/5
i have never used an app so slow. it constantly is freezing & crashing. it's not even slow because of the internet connection, you can have a perfect wifi connection & it will still take a good 3 minutes to just TYPE something, let alone to load a page. & that's only if it hasn't crashed yet. to be clear, i like genius in general. this is a critique on the App only.
Best music analyzing app 5/5
This app asked me to write s review so much that I got annoyed. However, this app is wonderful and I use it all the time, 5/5 easy.
Trash 🗑 1/5
Fix the search so top result shows top song instead of lyric match. Also the ads are just out of control (in the middle of the lyrics). App also runs clunky and crashes.
Love it 5/5
The Best Way to Learn Lyrics 5/5
I've been a user of the desktop site for a while and have found the mobile app to be just as easy to use! The integration they've added and continue to add make this app a must have.

Your favorite poetry analyzed. Appreciate the artZ. Gain the knowledgez. The powerz.
Good content but still trash 2/5
By Yo wassabi
For as much cool stuff as this app has to offer, it falters with lesser known artists and is rife with crashes and runs slowly.
The search functionality takes an especially painful amount of time to work and filters poorly. Anything that isn't insanely mainstream will be missing large chunks of explanations or lyrics and songs altogether.
Yes it's great 5/5
By Ector Javier
Now please stop asking me to review ✌️
Best lyric app 5/5
It's easy to use.
Good But... 4/5
The app is good, it's easy to function and go around. Sometimes it force quits, but what app doesn't? My true issue (preventing 5 stars) is the iOS Messaging thing doesn't work for me. Whenever I put the song I want in to put lyrics from it doesn't load (doesn't even try) & says "unable to load lyrics" for EVERY song I've tried.
