One of the first things I noticed is that when it recognizes the song, it also provides the lyrics! Woo hoo!! I know that may not mean much to some of you, but for some reason I thought that was so cool. Another thing that Sound Hound does that Shazam doesn't is it recognizes your own humming or singing of a song. Yes, it works. I put on my inner Chris Tomlin and sang
As hoped, you are also able to look up an artist and see what songs they sing or you can type in a song title to look up information about the song. I looked up Dave Barnes. Over on the left side of this post is a screen capture image from my phone of what the page looked up after typing in Dave Barnes. Once the song list was generated I clicked on one that I wanted to look up. If you notice there are little arrows on the album art of the individual songs. If you see a little arrow you will be able to listen to a little clip of the song which I think is a cool feature.
There is just so much that Sound Hound has to offer and I could gush on and on about it but it's usually best to try it out yourself. It's a fun app to have on your phone.
