This app needs to be fixed

Every time I search for a song just before it finds this song or right after it finds a song or write as it finds this song, it will brighten the screen up to all the way up brightness and I have my brightness really low if not all the way down to zero because this is a bug that you need to fix and my auto brightness on my phone is off so it’s clearly an option in the app that’s turned off by the fall and you can’t turn it off or it’s a bug because this is insane it should be happening. This has never happened before this needs to be fixed as soon as possible. I’m serious it’s very annoying and I am getting really fed up with this app because it hasn’t done this before you need to fix this bug.

The newest version is outstanding

I had the original version and it worked well it just didn’t keep a library of the music you listened to. Now that the new update 1.3 came out, the app is everything I wished it was. All songs are kept under the History button. I’m glad they listen to the feedback they received. AAA+++

Really cool app with lots of features

Lots of features crammed into this song identifier app. Really slick interface. Not sure if I would pay for the "gold" subscription personally, but it looks to be good value for the money if you use the app a lot.
