Lots of bugs 2/5
All kinds of bugs. Very slow and glitchy. The mobile site is much faster
Thank You for Bringing Back Music Detection Feature on iPad but What About iPhone 3/5
By Breanna Monique
It was a real inconvenience to look for lyrics manually while songs are playing in the background so bringing back the auto-detect feature is much appreciated... but it’s only on the iPad. Please fix
Wouldn’t recommend 2/5
By King sq1rrel
This app tells you cool things about certain lyrics sure, but if you’re looking to use it to learn an entire song you’re out of luck. It shows one verse or the chorus if you’re lucky.
Ads ruined this app 1/5
Incessant, insane and infuriating presence of ads. Switching to a new app.
Not as good as the website 3/5
I wish you could scroll through all of the hot songs and not just the top 20. I wish you could see the top charts in different genres or when you go to an artists page you can see more than their top 5 songs
Song not there 3/5
Recently I downloaded this app because it popped up when I was searching for something else I pressed on the add and it took me too the website I searched up the song the skyluar sisters from Hamilton on the website and it popped up first thing so I downloaded the app for better content keep in mind that same exact song that I searched up was at the top the very first song any ways when I searched it in the app search bar I couldn't find it is it just that you don't update the same songs or that I didn't look hard enough and the app also took 20 minutes too load
Doesn’t detect music anymore and interface is too cluttered 1/5
The app no longer works as seamlessly as it used to. Additionally, developers should make the experience for users more simple. We don’t want Song Stories on the HOME menu when a VIDEO tab already exists, that’s too abundant. We want a clear interface that doesn’t have Song Stories or at least make those optional to have on the home menu. This app is honestly so disappointing now. The search algorithm is so deluded, I find myself having to type a paragraph to find a song.
I enjoy using this app when I need to know the lyrics from my favorite songs, but that’s about all this app is good for (which is unfortunate considering there’s a large variety of other things you’re supposed to be able to do with this app) the most helpful feature of the app-The currently listening feature which allows you to immediately view the lyrics for the song you’re currently listening to—No longer works and has not worked in a few weeks now and I have no idea why. I’ve checked all my settings, redownloaded the app several times, etc but nothing is working. I hope this is fixed soon because having to type in the name of the song every time is annoying and unnecessary (and wouldn’t be nearly as much of a hassle if they’d stop suggesting songs that are not even close to being the song you’re listening to because they go by lyrics rather than song titles I guess.)
Nickname wouldn’t work 1/5
By Judd Warrick
Couldn’t get past the nickname function at the very beginning. No matter what I entered it til me it was too short. And it is supposed to look like an email address? I don’t understand. I’m sure this was a cool app but I’m done.
How can I delete my account? 3/5
I want to delete my account because I would like to make a new account but with my same email account.
By Samar Stan
I understand this app has only been around since 2009; but it really needs to find a better way to pin point lyrics when the user tries to search them. There’s been countless times I’ve typed in a full sentence to a song, and absolutely none of the right references pop up, then I’ll head to Google and the first one is the one I’m referring to. They really need to get this under control because it can be really frustrating trying to find a single song or like just knowing a certain line or too and really trying to figure out which song it is. I understand you can record it to figure out, similar to Shazam, but I’m not always actually listening to it. I’ll just recall a line or two that stood out and I want to know what song it is. Otherwise it is a good app and the lyrics are most often than not accurate.
It is awful 😡 1/5
By Tac 0 cat
NEVER GET THIS APP! this app makes you sine up. I want a app that you just open the app and just get the lyrics!
By Annahita hp
It could be good, but it is a mess 3/5
The app constantly crashes it is slow and I can’t stand using Genius. At this point looking back, it is been three years and the app is still a piece of garbage.
Three stars because the community is great but (I think we should move to another service)
Can't view song bio with all the extra crap
Almost Perfect - The Best of It’s Kind 5/5
It serves its purpose flawlessly. Because I only use it for two things:
(1.) to search for lyrics of a particular song
(2.) to quickly see the lyrics of the song I am listening to
I think all the other functions, regardless of how well they work, are useless to me. But I am grateful that the part I care about works very well and almost never fails.
I have one complaint, two suggestions:
1.) I wish there was a tab or something within the app when you open it to see a list of the most recent song lyrics you’ve looked at
2.) a tan or something within the app of saved or favorite lyrics, so I wouldn’t have to research or re-listen to a certain song, just to remind myself of the lyrics.
I recommend this app, it has served me well.
great app 5/5
I really only use this app every once in awhile to learn the lyrics for songs and what they mean but when I do you it there are great videos to show what the lyrics mean which makes this a overall great app!
Search Engine Discriminates 3/5
When typing in names of songs, despite giving the exact title of a song it will automatically begin to list Rap, hip hop, or pop music unless you also type in the artists name. It has gone far enough that when I was typing a song in a foreign language, it spellchecked my search to push something completely different to me.
No longer pulls up lyrics for a song playing in the Music app 1/5
That’s pretty much all I used this for, and somewhere in the last 6-12 months or so it stopped doing that, and I don’t see why in any changelog or configurable option. It used to automatically detect what was playing and ask if you wanted to see the lyrics. I’ve never changed any settings anywhere, so I’m assuming it’s either a bug or they silently removed the feature. I only used it for this, so it’s kind of useless now.
Love the app but not working properly 3/5
Won’t detect music playing anymore
Pretty broken 1/5
Really needs some work, some notable glitches are the screen rotation within the system but not in the app, the search functionality should prioritize song names instead of what song says the phrase the most times, and the part at the bottom where the rest of the album is doesn't show up entirely upwards of 80% of the time. That's just scratching the surface
Search is broken 2/5
For some reason search defaults to lyrics instead of song title. I imagine most people searching probably search for a song title rather than lyrics.
Bug in IPhone X or all phones not too sure !! Please fix guys 5/5
I love this app and been using for the longest time. And has great potential. My point is that on my old phone this app ran pretty well. Despite the great interface and smoothness of the app, the music player never loads my songs playing. I have to look them up. Pls get it fixed guys. 🤦🏽♂️🙏🏽
App’s Bugged out 1/5
What’s up with this app? It’s now allowing me to look up different artist’s songs or nothing. Literally can’t navigate through the app at all. I think it’s time for a new update.
YO ! 3/5
Yo Fam, Great App, But The Songs That Are Playing On My Phone Don’t Pop No More. I Have To Skip It Then Go Back To The Song In Order To Get The Now Playing Pop Up Thing. That’s A Vital Piece Of The App Rt. Squash Them Bugs, Good Looks. 👍🏽
Night Mode 4/5
Bring Night Mode to the app and it would be a 5 star.
Song stories 4/5
By courtney conley
I like the songs but I hate the song stories that stop me from listening to the music without interruptions I just want to listen to the music without it having to show me the freaking story every time it’s trash
Song Stories 2/5
Song stories have ineffectively taken over the song description. What used to be a great overall description of a song, has now been reduced to a video that doesn’t always for correlate to the song. Song descriptions were great for finding out the background to the entirety of a song, it’s producer, and the thought process surrounding the song. Song stories have ruined Genius.
Won’t show lyrics for now playing song 2/5
When music plays on Apple Music.
Good app, ads ruin it 2/5
I loved using the website and got the app so it’s more convenient but I get interrupted 5+ times by ads when I’m reading the meaning behind 1 song. Way too many ad interruptions, it completely ruins the experience.
No longer useful 2/5
Lyric content is great but the app no longer has a shortcut to what's playing and ads will take over device audio. Easier to just use the interwebs....
pisses me off 1/5
This app was doing fine, it was great, it was my go-to for lyrics, but now it's basically useless garbage, because every time I go to look at a song a worthless video ad plays and interrupts whatever song I have playing. Pretty effing stupid for an app literally about music to shut off my music. I'm deleting this until I hear there's been a fix, 'cause I can find lyrics anywhere else and I'm not gonna deal with this when I can use a site with normal ads that won't make me wanna break my phone.
Love the app 5/5
Can you make the app available as a widget on iOS devices
Song Stories 2/5
I appreciate Song Stories as a new and more simplistic concept, but they’ve effectively replaced the song description and view counter.
I love the app because it provides great new insight on some the music which I would’ve never know which is really cool. I recently made the switch over to Spotify and I am trying to figure my way around. When I had Apple Music and I played a song and then I would open genius it would almost immediately suggest the lyrics to the song I was listening to which I loved. Because not all songs on Apple Music had lyrics and genius always did so that was really helpful. But what I don’t like is that when I’m listening to music on Spotify and want to look for the lyrics on genius and open the app it doesn’t suggest the song I’m currently listening to and so then I have to go and look it up. Now I know this isn’t a big problem but it gets really annoying after a while and I would really love it if you guys could do something about that.
Can’t play music 4/5
Genius is a great app but one thing that’s getting on my nerves is the new Snapchat like stories. Especially if you’re trying to listen to a song like today I was trying to play Alright by Kendric Lamar and it would not let me. Instead it sent me to a story about trap music. Overall it is still a great app but I don’t like the new stories appearing on the song page. 4/5
WE NEED COMMENTS BACK! 4/5
I love this app it really makes me appreciate music more, and i love that i can get to know the artists jntentions behind the meaning of a song. the interface is easy to use and i love that i can even find songs from mixtapes on the app. BUT AND ITS A BIT BUT WHY CAN YOU COMMENT IN SONGS ANYMORE?! i definitely remember doing it in the past but now i can’t? what gives? great conversations would happen in the comments section and i really this this app benefits from that. please bring back comments EVERYONE will thank you later!🙏🏾
Stops background audio? Are you crazy? 1/5
App has been good in the past, but today it stopped my background audio every time I opened the lyrics for the song I was listening to, entirely defeating the purpose of the app.
Used to be really good but now it’s not useable, app is frozen or when you search lyrics nothing pops up at all. Fix this app
Good for lyrics, crashes too much 2/5
Great app for finding lyrics. But, it crashes all the time, reacts really slowly and freezes up way too much. Sometimes when I have music playing on my phone, it’ll stop what I’m listening to. It’s got a good amount of glitches and problems, but aside from that is great.
IT DOESNT WORK 1/5
The app won’t load and keeps saying that it has failed for me to log into my google account. None of the content has loaded and I have had this app for weeks. If this has happened to anyone please help me fix it.
Album Covers 4/5
There should be a way to see the alternate album covers and album cover annotations, as I think they’re important and shouldn’t be a desktop exclusive feature. Other than that the app doesn’t have any problems that come to mind. - KirbyKip251 (on Genius)
This app crashes more than I can use it. One of my favorites just became one of my worst. Smh.
Faster & better than Musixmatch 5/5
You don’t need a lyric app that makes you pay! I love Genius!
Great app, room for improvement 4/5
There should be an option for users to submit lyric fixes. Have a review process by creators/staff to correct some incorrect lyrics
5 stars if it worked with Spotify 4/5
Would be great if Spotify integration is in the works
App is 🔥🔥🔥💯 5/5
Dank af lowkey on a high note tho don’t trip just trust don’t be caught slipping getting caught up on them lyrics read through them right quick and learn them like a sport listen to that fire heat but keep that heart cold trust in me cuz I told you so don’t come at me but forget the hoes I love you b never forget this app gold 😉
Rap Genius 10/10 5/5

Used to be great, update with advertising ruined it 1/5
This app was great to use prior to Apple advertising that they also have lyrics. Sadly, with updates and the producers requiring more money the app’s quality went with it. If you’re trying to listen to music and try to read what the lyrics should be interpreted as, good luck. This app is now ruined with advertising, and specifically the ones that interrupt and pause your music to play the advertisement. Trash.
Pauses music for their ads 1/5
What a joke of an app
