Often, good music does not get into our playlists, simply because he heard her in a cafe in the store or on the street, we do not know whom to ask, “What is it? Who performer? “The idea of ​​developers SoundHound is not unique: they have solved the problem with the help of music recognition mobile application that records a fragment of track on the built-in microphone iPhone or iPad, sends it to the server and sends it back to the phone full information: artist, song title and album .

And thanks to the new panel, called the left side of the screen, you can quickly access the Search button and navigation menu from any page of the screen.
