Accessibility Comments: 

AppleVis Editorial Team Note: There are some VoiceOver accessibility issues with in the app itself. Please see more information below in the Comments section. Original Post: This app works great. When you tap Music Search, you will not hear the sound which confirms you've double-tapped. Just start singing or playing your music. When playing music, the app will vibrate when it finds a match. If it's having trouble finding a match, it will vibrate when it is done searching. When singing a tune, the app waits for you to stop singing before it searches. It will then vibrate when the search is complete.
