    You can't figure out Stranglehold by Ted Nugent but you can spam me with ads for a moron named Thomas Rhett? Better yet, you thought Requiem by Mozart was A Call From Heaven by Brainwash, then Pizza by Miss Ko. That is a serious "mistake." No thanks Full Review

    this app is awesome bt the main problem is that it can't identify any song except english😭. it can be the best music identifier if it can identify music of all languages. so i am telling to the authority that if you can then solve this problem in the next update. we are eagerly waiting for that. ✋😌 Full Review

Just taking other place nd becoming on top in searching.that don't mean u will remain on top bcz of ur lame performance.if u not improve it asap then might be u will there very soon from where u started . Now days while searching any song it makes u annoy after u see no results found this no results I marked it as 1 start 😪👾 Full Review
