Pros and cons of SoundHound∞ - Music Discovery app for iPhone and iPad

SoundHound∞ - Music Discovery app good for

This is an amazing App, dont wait ..take it It is so powerful that even oldies are easily recognized Jump on it
Youre in a cafe, you like the music, you get it quickly recognized. Recognition ratio is very good. Love it.
One thing I love is the Spotify sync! Very useful with the PC and PS4 helps build the playlist you truly love! A+ well done Soundhound!
I dont know how it works but it works awesome. Really keeps my music collection growing by allowing me to quickly identify a tune. Thx guys!
Brilliant it, love it, love it. Its on all the time!!!
I use it all the time. You can find almost anything, even French songs

Some bad moments

Very very bad icon !!! Why the black ? Jony ive hate that… me too
App crashes after 3 seconds open (iPhone 6s, iOS 9.2.1). Please, fix it.
This used to be my go-to app when listening to music. The Live-Lyrics used to be a great feature. However, now it only shows lyrics for songs purchased through iTunes or downloaded with an iTunes Match subscription. Did Apple buy out this app? It used to live on my springboard but now its gone. Ive replaced it with Lyrics+ which finds lyrics for all my music, whether I bought it from Apple or not.
The interface is hopelessly confused and song lyrics rarely work properly during music library playback. It feels like these guys have been taking lessons in interface design from the Apple iTunes team (and no thats not a compliment).
There was a time when I could simply open the app and the Soundhound button would be right there for me when I needed it. Now main page is cluttered with all kinds of useless crap and Soundhound button is buried in the menu. Found this out the hard way when trying to find the one button that makes this app useful only to have the song end before I could find it. Dump the fluff and put the Soundhound button back on the main page.
Whoever is responsible for vandalizing my iPhone screen with this ugly eyesore should be fired. If graphic designers were licences his should be revoked. SoundHound had an elegant and distinctive Icon. It would have been fine to go flatter but this is just crap. I cant stand looking at it. I think I am going to switch to Shazam, which I used to think had the uglier icon, until now.
