MixLyrics 1.0 - Release Delayed

It usually isn't an easy decision to delay a release, however this decision was fairly easy to make, and once you understand why, you'll agree.

AZ Lyrics, the website that MixLyrics uses to grab all of the lyrics from, has been having numerous issues recently with it's search functionality, a core part of MixLyrics. Without it, MixLyrics is unable to function in any way at all. Normally, I'd wait to see what happens, however as it's been a few days, and not the first time this issue has occurred, I have decided enough is enough.

So, I am rewriting the core functionality of MixLyrics to now use Musixmatch instead of AZ Lyrics to get its lyrics from. This is not an easy task, and will require time, however the result will be well worth it.

Spotify Lyric Sync will work just as before, however the manual song search has been modified. Now, instead of listing results, because Musixmatch is much more accurate than AZLyrics, you are automatically taken to the best result. Don't worry, because if the song isn't what you were looking for, you are able to provide more details about it to ensure that you get the perfect result. So far, I've tested it on tons of songs, and it has been super accurate, so I don't see this as a set back.

Now, because of this massive new change, I don't feel comfortable releasing MixLyrics 1.0 just yet. Instead, I will be releasing MixLyrics 0.8 this Wednesday, February 8. MixLyrics 0.8 will have these new changes mentioned above, and your feedback is more than welcome!
