Have you ever wondered what is the meaning behind your favoritelyrics? (What does a room without a roof have to do with happiness?) Well look no further than Rap Genius’ handy for the iOS.

Everything you love about Rap Genius, from the many song lyrics of variable genres to the highlighted annotations, can be found in this easy to use app, and more.

The app has a clean and simple interface, with Rap Genius signature yellow tint. But if your a user, you would know that it’s not only rap lyrics now, but also pop, rock and even poetry and news! Now you can search up the meaning of that one Katy Perry song, or see what other people interpret F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic: The Great Gatsby. It’s kind of like Sparknotes for lyrics.

A cool feature is the Genius Recognition. Don’t know the name of a song? Hold your device up to the music and the app will find the lyrics for the song that’s playing. Another cool feature is that the app identifies your music library; There’s a tab that displays your library in list form and it also shows your last five songs played and the song currently playing.

If you’re a fan of Rap Genius, then this app is a must, of course. But if you like finding out the meanings behind the music, then you’ll love this app as well.
