SoundHound gets iPhone 6 support and fresh new look for faster music discovery

SoundHound 6.3 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 001)

SoundHound’s music-tagging iOS app has received a makeover Tuesday morning putting the software in line with the design aesthetic in iOS 7. New features are available for faster music discovery, with native display support for the new 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus display sizes and other goodies.

The refreshed interface features swiping based navigation that tucks the Search button and other options under a left-side column revealed by swiping left.

You can also swipe right like you would in other iOS 7 apps to go back to the previous page and you’ll notice a new nicely animated listening screen as well.

SoundHound is free in the App Store.

SoundHound’s home screen has received a substantial makeover.

The improved layout now combines your search history with top videos, emerging artists and popular music into one scrollable view.
