I don't get y does it sounds like someone recorded it off of the radio? Four and a half stars and the sound quality is bad...disappointed.

WAY BETTER THAN SHAZAM First off, no limitations on tags. Secondly, the interface is clean and stylish and finally (most importantly) it works great. I LOVE this app and use it all the time!

Works great on samsung transform. Only draw back is if there is other noise it sometimes won't find it. Needs a way to save list to pc or something.

This is quite an amazing app it can effortlessly identify songs even if its playing from a distance. It can also still identify the song if theres background noises and talking (as long as theres not too much). All it needs is support for songs in different languages then it'd be perfect.

This app is awesome! I was wishing I had TrackID again from my old SonyEriccson w580i, but Sound Hound is so much better! Love it on my Blaze android!

Tried it a few times. Works great on Samsung Transform. Easy to operate and has a clean GUI that gives wealth of info like tour dates etc. A must have
Incredible app. It beats shazam hands down. Move to SD. It's free and it gets far more hits than shazam when the music is quiet or people talk over it

Fantastic app, defiantly a keeper, works a treat. Unlimited tags can't go wrong. Unlike Shazam, how many customers have they lost? Perfect many thanks
