Looks like I’ll delete this app and go back to Shazam. Used to work great but now someone had the brilliant idea to have video ads while the app is supposed to be listening to the song. My phone then stops playing whatever song it was playing because it’s playing the video. Did anyone think this through, or better yet actually test the change?
Abuses Notifications 1/5
I don’t really understand why this app has such high reviews. Its music identification is categorically worse than Shazam, and it abuses its users’ attention pretty significantly by pushing way too many notifications for stuff that isn’t notification worthy (“it’s st Patrick’s day come to use our app”).
There’s a balance in re engagement strategies and Soundhound does not follow it.
Doesn’t know all types of music 3/5
Knows nothing about jazz and oldies
Great app, probably my favorite 5/5
Great app, probably my favorite.
I do not like this app 1/5
I thought the concept was really cool so I downloaded the app after reading many good reviews. I opened the app and started humming a pretty guessable song (24k magic by Bruno Mars) and it didn’t work. It said to sing it longer, so I did and it still didn’t work. I tried more songs and it just didn’t work. Cool concept. Bad execution . (In my opinion )
Love It ! ! ! 5/5

From gold to tin 2/5
Went from an excellent and reliable software to that of a nice decoration. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there outta be a law that bars programers from altering their successful creation, one it’s on the market.
Love sound hond 5/5
By love you and thanks you
Doesnt even work 2/5
By Pitfall origin
This app worked once. The first time I hummed a tune in. After that, it wouldn’t show me anything. I tried to sing the most recognizable tunes, like Ariana Grande’s Thank U Next, and Michael Jackson’s Best It. No dice. Don’t waste your time.
This app never recognizes any of the songs I ask about. It’s pretty much useless in my opinion. They need to broaden their library.
Love it 5/5
So I’ve had an unnamed anime song in my drop box for years now and couldn’t remember the name of it so I downloaded this app and played the song, less thank 10 seconds in it figured out what song it was, best music finder app I’ve used.
Outstanding Application 5/5
By Maverick Not Goose
This app actually works and with outstanding accuracy. A must have for music buffs. You won’t regret the download.
Love this app❤️❤️ 5/5
I use it almost daily for remembering a song to add to a playlist later and for lyrics! Love SoundHound❤️❤️
I dig it 5/5
I dig this app and how it has connections to different things like I now can have my alarm to play a specific song that I pick!! It’s connected to Sound Hound as well! Easy to share on Instagram n fb. The suggested songs on different stations are good too!! I can add and subtract songs easily to and from my library.
Like I said, I dig this app! It’s clearly one of my most used apps - like every day!
Sound hound is a beast!!!! 5/5
Love this app!!!
Eh ok ig 1/5
I mean it’s a great app I guess.. but I can’t use airpods or wireless earphones when I use this app. It completely disconnects them from my phone
By 77 Blue hawk
Love this app !!!!!
Great music identifying app 5/5
I just love SOUNDHOUND when I don’t know the name of a song a tap my app then the app identifies the song for me!!!then I can share it add it to my Apple Music I just LOVE LOVE THIS APP!!!
F*** Shazam 5/5
SoundHound will NOT leave you hanging when you MUST know the name of the joint! Soooo much better and reliable than Shazam. It’s 2019, SoundHound has the lockdown on music identification! Thank You, I’m enjoying the service reliability immensely!
Ads popping up during listening? 1/5
Used to be good, but now awful glitchy and adds pop up talking during the app listening. Time to say bye bye
This latest version can only be played with speakers, does not support my airpods 1/5
This latest version can only be played with speakers, does not support my Airpods
I love Sound Hound but why does it not allow me to share to Facebook anymore? Why Twitter? I don’t have that and none of my close friends do. I enjoy sharing my music so I gave it a 3 because I can’t share to Facebook anymore. Please add that back. Thanks.
It crashes 1/5
By str8 2 point
I wish someone would fix this last upgrade. I love this app but as soon as it recognizes the song that it’s listening to, it crashes.
I had this app since it came out and I would hate to use another app.
I get that you need commercials to help pay. But you are making me listen to 30 second commercials on a 3 minute song. I used to only use your app. I’m searching for something else now.
Always works 5/5
I’ve had SoundHound installed on my phone since the first iPhone. Always works i love this app
Problem Identified 1/5
By Wasting My Thyme
This app used to be phenomenal, but one day it just stopped working. It took some time but I eventually discovered that the app now requires “Pre-listening” to be enabled in order to work.
According to their website, this allows the app to record and “send audio to servers even before tapping the search button.”
Personally, I don’t like the privacy implications of an app recording and transferring audio at any time without being activated, so I don’t plan to use the app again unless this changes.
Note that the options allow the user to turn this feature off, but doing so renders the app useless. (So there really is no reason for that to appear as an option anyway.)
Ads with audio are killing this app 1/5
I used to love this app.
Now half the time I use it, it plays an ad with audio that prevents it from working properly. I can’t even begin to imagine why an app that identifies music would allow ads that render it completely useless. I didn’t want to switch to Shazam, but I’m headed that way now.
Heaven Sent 5/5
This app is the best thing since sliced bread!!!
I never have to wonder about any song I hear playing any where. I have actually purchased so much music since having this app.
So fast easy to use!!! Thank you Sound Hound for letting me indulge myself in the world of music!!! I just can’t thank you enough!
Wonderful app 5/5
I absolutely love this incredible application. It has helped me out so much when out and about and I hear a song that I enjoy I just open up the app and click on the orange button and let it listen to the song and quickly it tells me the song title and the artist couldn’t ask for a more wonderful app that does identify songs quickly even if you’re not right next to where the song is coming from.
Way Better Than B4! 5/5
Haven’t used this app in years. Decided to try it again a month or so ago. So glad I did. Super easy to use & it’s really quick to recognize & every song I use it on!
Doesn’t work at all! 1/5
I don’t like it I love it 5/5
Best aPP ever
It’s been very good from day one
How is this app allowed in the App Store? 1/5
This is quite possibly the buggiest app available for iOS. The developers should be ashamed of this pile of crap.
Sound Hound Loves Real House Music 5/5
First I want to thank you for having a large library of House Music. The other company’s App deals with Pop and EDM & throw crumbs to real House Heads who are using their app. Sometimes we are searching in vain but 9 times out of 10 you are spot on. You list the club version of the which I appreciate. Thanks
The best 5/5
I don’t know how I ever lived before SoundHound.... It’s the best
Love love it 😘
What happened to the lyrics? 3/5
By -/::;(()) Addict *****
I used to love this app, but I can’t find the lyrics to the song... when did that change?
The best song recognition app 5/5
By ticked tock
I have used this app almost since it was launched and have had an excellent experience each time. The UI is intuitive and simple but in its guts lies a complexity that provides you with a nearly fool proof algorithm (one can assume) that identifies anything this audiophile has thrown at it. Kudos to the team, you folks continue to put forth great tech and this fan appreciates it.
Strip club ads 1/5
I just started getting ads for strip clubs in this app. Uninstalled and switching to Shazam.
Title but no artist identity 4/5
Love this app but my main love in music is classical. Often the work, album and conductor are identified but I want to know the composer, who is often not easily found.
It’s a great app 5/5
By Frankley 56
Works surprisingly well, even in a noisy restaurant environment.
Used to be good 1/5
Hardly ever recognizes songs anymore. Went way downhill.
Excelente aplicación 5/5
Open Range 👏🏽🤗 5/5
Love knowing music to great flicks!
Major flaw with ads 1/5
I’ve used this app for years and have always loved it. However, I was trying to identify a song today and when you press the start button it also triggered a video ad to start playing... which frowns out whatever your trying to ID. No button to mute the volume on the ad. Tried again a 2nd time, different video ad started playing again. Thankfully this was a situation where I could pause the song source (it was a movie) so I didn’t miss it... but as many of us know, this isn’t always the case and you may only get a few seconds to identify a song! Very annoyed.
Love SoundHound 5/5
This app never fails to produce the artist, title and album! Fast and dependable AND you can save or purchase the song ❤️👏👏👏
