Using an antivirus software is never the most effective way to keep your device secure. Many of the applications come with a backdoor which the developer or the hackers may use to gain access to your device, push some malicious content, promoted apps or adware to your device. They may also access your personal contents.

While this not only happens with third-party apps but with official apps or system apps as well. Xiaomi phone users are very aware of this. Xiaomi's MIUI system apps are famous for downloading and installing sponsored contents such as adware, apps, app suggestions and annoying notifications. For example, it makes no sense for a File Explorer app to make an internet connection on MI phone.

What song was that? Did you listen to that song at the coffee shop or while shopping at the mall and wanted to look up the song but couldn't figure out the lyrics? Even if you can google a few words of the lyrics and find the song, what if there was an easier way?

A few days back I was watching a Zumba video on youtube by Tanory Ateek and I really liked the music and Tanory was an awesome instructor. I wanted to get the song. But the problem was I couldn't figure out the lyrics at all. I at least knew that it wasn't an English song. I also got to know Google Now (Ok Google) started a music recognition service. But it was for English only and I couldn't find it. Google now didn't help me.

I started searching for some other apps which could better recognize the music and it should also provide support for non-English songs. Then I came across this app named SoundHound.
