Récupérer les infos d'une chanson simplement en lui la faisant écouter.

When comparing apps such as SoundHound & Shazam both I feel are equal, SoundHound's edge is it looks good & picks up most songs!

Used to be good I got this like a year ago and it was working great, but it can't even identify songs I've identified with it before...

Needs android wear support! Can't find several songs, and many don't have lyrics for them.

Great app but some really annoying issues In general I use it first, then if it can't find the song I'll try it with shazam. I find shazam gives more false hits than soundhound. Major annoyances howver: 1. The user interface is damned awkward and easy to hit the wrong button. 2. It take for ever to load the first time. 3. Turning off the screen cancels the search request. 4. Soundhound Infinity also won't do split screen like standard, so upgrading actually cancels one aspect of functionality which is just stupid.

Excellent. Slow. It works very well, but is way too slow to open. I have a GS4, not too old, and it takes like 10 seconds to load and be ready to listen. This is acceptable for a high end game but not an app like this. I have missed songs before the app was ready to load. I have switched to Shazam until it is improved.
