Hound is a music app that searches for songs. You can look for songs using the voice-based search feature. This means that the application will conduct the search if you simply say the song name or the artist name out loud. The app recognizes the song or artist you said out loud and provides the search results. Additionally, for those times when voice-based search does not provide results, the app gives you the flexibility of typing in the name of the song or artist.
After the results are generated, you can do multiple things with your search. You can choose to play the song or just play a preview, you can download the song, get more information on the song and the artist, or you can watch the video of the song on YouTube. Additionally, you can chose to share the song with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, email or text.
