- Minimalistic design
- Unique functional
- There is no significant disadvantages
Two applications with the same purpose Shazam and SoundHound showed somewhat different functionality on the same test track. Shazam better recognizes more or less rare or old tracks, although they are both great recognize the popular tracks.
However SoundHound has one significant advantage, it can recognize songs even if you just hum the tune of a song or sing the song by yourself. Of course, the percentage of finding in this case is small, but the application is trying to pick up some of the most similar tracks, among which you often can find desired.
Both applications in case of successful recognition of tracks provide information about the artist, the album, which contains the song and allow you to buy the track and watch videos of an artist in YouTube.
Besides the basic functionality of SoundHound you can view charts of the most popular and the most unpopular tracks by category and so on. In addition, the developers made a map of your taste preferences in the main menu, which is quite amusing, but senseless.
You can make a search by a song or artist, as well as just to say the name to the microphone, smart application will display all the available information. In my opinion, the interface of Shazam is more convenient, but the element of recognition is more pleasant in SoundHound. The choice between these two applications should be based on your musical preferences.
