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!

No longer get lyrics Used to show lyrics. Now it just shows a link to Google search the lyrics.... Duh!! As with many once great apps, this app has lost its way.

Too many ads Given this is the paid version of the app, the ads (or "featured" things) should be optional. To often I find the app delays my ability to start finding out a song name because it's spending too long advertising at me. Other than the ads it works pretty well though.
