Rate this App

Genius is an app that grants you access to a huge database of song lyrics, with specific annotations for each verse. This means you'll be able to take a quick look at any song, click on a verse and immediately be able to read information about its context, meaning, story, significance, etc.

Using Genius is as easy as typing in the title of a song to find its lyrics, or directly using the microphone on your smartphone or tablet to capture the song you're listening to. Right away, you can check out song lyrics and access its music video by simply touching your screen.

One of the best things about Genius is that you'll get to see side notes about almost any song verse out there. Ever asked yourself what an artist really meant when they sang a specific verse from your favorite tune? Well, with Genius, you'll get to know the truth. It's also possible to rate the side notes so that if you disagree with the author, all you'll have to do is say so.

Genius is an app that is great for music fans. There are already tons of apps that give you song lyrics, but what about an app that lets you comment on the lyrics verse by verse reading side notes? Nope, they are harder to come by. Genius really is unique.
