Update Killed It

It took a while to figure out what volumes worked best when having this app listen, but since then, it worked quite well. Huge fan of the app, until recently. After an update it became unusable. Within 5 seconds of opening the app, it immediately crashes. I had to quickly thumb through the menus and hastily take screenshots just to actually read the titles of songs in my history. Might revisit this app later, assuming it gets updates that are helpful.

Used to work

When it works it's great. Seem to be bugs that bounce me out of the app when I do something as simple as delete an entry or expand my list of songs. It's very frustrating. Lately cannot identify any songs. I'm done.

This app makes me happy!

I was searching for this tune that I can't get out of my mind. I was about to lose hope searching for it. It turns out, it was Billy Idol's Eyes Without a Face, and this app helped me only by humming the tune. ☺

Enjoying this app. Thank you for being on Windows!

It used to be good

I've been using this app for years... even in some other platforms on different phones... and used to be work just fine... for some reason after the last windows 10 upgrade the app crashes as soon as you open it... not able to search any songs! that makes me sad because this app was superb... I think it hasn't received any update from.the developers for a while... same as waze, they are forgetting Windows customers ☹☹☹

Its all Id ever been looking for

Excellent app, only issue is that it frequently crashes when reading lyrics the first time it finds the song. Fortunately it saves the lyrics locally which solves the problem.

What an amazing trick this app pulls off, every time. How does it do that?? Even with new releases, even with music that doesn't have vocals. Indispensable for anyone who loves and listens to a lot of music.

Horrible recognition

Couldn't even recognize popular songs, that have been out for months. Example: Panda by desiigner

Uh, what happened?!

This app used to work pretty well before I installed Windows 10. Now, not so much. In fact I can't even open it. Oh well.😢
