Does what it's supposed to and does it well.
Excellent, way better than Shazam. Desire 2.2
So far it has been doing its job! Love it :)
This is so cool. Who sings that u will know very quickly.
Absolutely great...only a four start due to the most recent update getting rid of the widget...add that back and will be 5 star
Fail Commando (***)
Works great and seems to be launching faster on the Samsung Galaxy S than it was before.
I have no complaints
What an absolute brilliant app. App2sd raised the rating to 5* and fully deserved, well worth the few quid for the pro version. hTC Desire 2.2
