SoundHound ? is the ad-free version of the free SoundHound app with a few extra features. The app is focused on tagging as fast as possible, “as little as four seconds” as the developers claim. SoundHound ? also includes other features such as sharing the song you have tagged on various popular social networks, view full-length music videos from YouTube, iTunes and Pandora links, lyrics, artist Wikipedia bios and more. Unfortunately with my experience of the app, it is not as accurate as I would have hoped. I tagged a famous Black-Eyed Peas song and SoundHound ? displayed the French album information of the song while Shazam quickly found the same song in English. This may be due to the app’s focus on speed over accuracy. Hence, I feel, it doesn’t do justice to its hefty price tag.
