Doesn’t work
by Ctooch1990 on 2019/02/15 14:33
It doesn’t work! I miss the old Shazam. Why did I ever update! Someone needs to fix this. I also hate the new layout, it’s not very clear

Great app but needs some simple features
by Cory1967 on 2019/02/15 13:29
Great app I use it daily for capturing music for my radio show. Problem is if you do use it often over time you have many duplicates, and there is no way to easily delete them. That could be solved with a simple sort feature so you can sort your Shazams by artist or song title and there you go
Quite average

I’ve been using this app since the beginning and it was great. However, in the last half year or so it hasn’t been able to match even the most simplest of songs. I’ve kind of lost faith in this app.
constantly amazed
by Pixeltender on 2019/02/15 02:39
sometimes i just capture the end of the outro, sometimes the crowd is loud, but this app always picks out the song. i’m constantly impressed and always happy with it

Ever since I got an iPhone XS Max, Shazam works about 25% of the time. I could be right next to the sound source and it comes back as “Can’t find a match.” Going to try a different song identifying app.
Has never failed to ID a song
by mikemcgu on 2019/02/14 18:23
But after the latest update, doesn't completely stop pandora that's playing. But when opened or navigating this app, interferes with pandora. When opened or closed or navigating to the feedback menus within the app, temporarily interrupts audio that is being output. This is true on with Pandora at least. Have to change the stars to get devs' attention.

If you’re not using this app get it. Next time you’re at dinner and a song comes in you like you can it’s Shazam it. Both Spotify and Apple Music can be linked if you like and the tracks you Shazam pop automatically into a playlist. Super smooth.

One of those apps that sits in its cell and then when you're tuning into the playlist at the book store, you'll stretch your hand out, phone in hand, app open. capture the few seconds it takes to recognize the song.
Almost 5 star😬

I’ve never had many probs w/ this app & it has come n handy numerous times but...over the last few months I’ve used it, it has not been that reliable & it was frustrating a few times due to this. If it wrkd 90% of the time or more like it used to(or seemed like it use to always work)I will give 5 stars. Since my opinion is so noble & highly regarded😏

Shazaming offline
by MarioBuilderFan J on 2019/02/13 02:02
When I Shazam a song offline, It says we will name that song when you’re back online. Sometimes there is no match. I am trying to find a certain song. When I heard it, I was overthinking. A female sings it. It’s extremely cute. I heard it at Camp HI Ho. I don’t know the name. I’ll hear it again one day. I will find it one day but I don’t know when. My prediction is April 20 2019 because I might go to Camp HI Ho. If I hear it again April 20, I will say “what is this song.” When I find it, I will listen to it on YouTube and I will buy it on iTunes.
Lori’s blessedly honest opinion!

BEST MUSIC APP EVER!!!
Need to improve the Lyrics section
by Maegan Fahd on 2019/02/12 23:30
I use this app for the song lyrics. I hate the way these are shown now. You no longer can turn it to landscape view. Stay lyrics consistently run a full line behind the song playing on my radio. Yes because it is behind, I have to tell it to show full lyrics. However the lyrics are now printed so tiny that they are too hard to read when needing to read ahead because the app is running a line behind. This app has now become useless to me. While it used to have some stability issues before, I much preferred the old version where I could at least turn the lyrics to landscape view and when it did sometimes get behind the song, I could manage to read the next lyrics

Latest version is faster and doesn’t get jammed like the previous one. But, a big BUT, album title, release date, label are not shown. And in history that data has been removed. I’m so tired of every app trying to be a social media platform. All you get now with the song title is share, lyrics, video and a chance to buy it in the Apple Music. It’s dumber now.
Need to fix
by Shakur4 on 2019/02/12 22:52
I wish the newest songs will appear on the Top of the Playlist in Apple Music as suppose to the bottom. I hate the fact I have to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the song I just “Shazzamed”

Loved this app when it was one simple button to reveal the music, but now I hate all the visual tumultuous by adding social media and millions of ways to buy the music. Simplicity is key, but this is not. Also, takes too long to sample the music. Use to be quicker, so a lot of time I miss the music before it get a chance to sample. The devs are ruining it.

Pls broaden the variety of less popular music searches
by Goku's wife on 2018/08/30 13:51
First off I want to say We love what this apps ability is suppose to do and does for most popular songs but ....The only thing I have to complain about is that it’s actually kind of slow finding the song or doesn’t find the song at all for what we listen to. And that just defeats the point of having this awesome app. there is not enough knowledge on underground music only mainstream really or what’s popular on the radio. Very few songs we listen to. I mean if it’s popular you normally know the songs name but this app is suppose to help identify songs you don’t know or are rare and it does NOT do that! Pls update for all music genres underground please! Or less popular music groups. This app has failed me so many because of this! Examples are twiztid, amb, everlast, icp, chance the rapper, boondox, action Bronson, 6lack, caskey, merkules, phora these are just a few off the top of my head. Other than these two problems the app is great but that dropped a star for each issue we have with this app which is very fair to us. If this was fixed it would be 5 Star all the way but unfortunately it is only worthy of a 3 Star at the moment.
It is the technology I have been waiting for since 1990...
by Johnny Andres Parker on 2017/10/20 02:27
There have been songs that truly have been ingrained in my life since 91' where I never knew who the hell was the artist or song. On a tv show, a random commercial, etc. that have slipped through my fingers and traveled onward into the dark distance. I never caught the artist or the song. And I would sing these songs carving down the mountain or riding a wave internally for all this time.. When Shazam came out it literally changed my life on this earth. I finally have found what I have been searching for. You Shazam have found what I have been searching for. Now I use it anytime I feel moved in hearing a song at a store, a party, a commercial, a Movie. It has made me a better person. We are finally entering an age where the shadow of the sun is no longer. I beckon the suns musicals waves with the power of Shazam! Thank you my friend! You are a beautiful creation.
Apple made it worse
by Startrout on 2018/12/26 20:08
Shazam was one of the most inventive and useful apps ever created. I’ve been using it since the beginning. For many years it was rumored that Apple would buy Shazam - usually a good thing. Apple tends to make software better after they buyer it (well except for all the professional applications they discontinued after purchasing so they could use pieces of their technology in other, non professional, consumer applications/apps). In this case, Apple made it much harder to link to and buy songs in the iTunes music store. Instead they want to force you to use Apple Music which I have no need for at all with my very large collection of music I already own. Unfortunately, I’m going to switch to another competitor app, which I hate to do. I’m a huge Apple fan, but this app doesn’t work for me any longer. Fortunately, there’s not many songs I like that I don’t already own, so it won’t be that big an inconvenience in my case. These company’s just don’t want you to own anything anymore, they want that consistent monthly income from you renting everything. I hate revolving dept.
Useful
by RedNightingale on 2018/12/14 14:44
Okay, so I may not be musically talented, but I’m definitely a huge music fan. I’m always down to listen to new music. No matter where I am, when I hear a good song over the radio or in a store, I Shazam it and it helps me identify it. It’s so much easier than using Siri or Googling lyrics. And every now and then, I’ll use the app to try and understand a song’s lyrics. However, my only issue with the app is the format. I don’t know what it is about it, but it’s slightly confusing and obnoxious. I never use the discover page in the app for this reason. Although, I’m not sure I would use it even if the layout was better. And for those of you who are complaining about the app not recognizing songs, I don’t think it’s because the app doesn’t know it. I just think you are simply doing it wrong. I had that issue at first. The app best identifies songs when you open it and wait a few seconds before “Shazaming” a song.
Wham Bham Shazam
by An English/Art Brain on 2018/05/19 17:03
I’ve used Shazam since I got my first iPhone back in 2011. Overall, it’s been super helpful, especially when I’m in a store or somewhere that I can’t just ask what song is playing. However, I’ve been frustrated with the app the past several times I’ve used it. First off, the app was slow to launch. Secondly, once I pressed the Shazam button it was then slow to figure out what the song was. In several instances the song ended before the app even started Shazam-ing. That was super annoying, but I just figured out how to set it to start Shazam-ing upon launching. Hopefully will fix the problem. (And hopefully it’s not just that my iPhone 6 is just senile.) Another feature that I just discovered for myself is the ability to connect Shazam to my Apple Music app! It even adds a playlist of all my Shazam-ed songs. Since I subscribe to Apple Music I can listen to them immediately and whenever I want.
Shazaman! Searchin!
by allen enriquez on 2018/04/28 23:46
I’ve been using Shazam for over 10 years I barely thought about giving it a review. Not that it really needs it, because many people already know about the app globally. It’s the best app to see what artist/tv/movie/radio is playing! I remembered when I first used it when 3G was barely the next gen with it at these speeds it made it so much better to search for the details without any needs to going the the webpage or anything else it is at your fingertips just one click their is a way to say “Shazam” to start the searching. I am not to sure if it works with everything. Most o the type I find my self just using Siri to do most of my stuff while moving around. It’s a very useful app because you may what to know what movie someone is watching or a friend my want to know without interrupting the movie they can search seamlessly!
Sixth Love Language
by Gabrirl Peme on 2018/08/27 15:41
I absolutely love Shazam. I, like so many others have been able to vibe with life connecting through music; the right song always seems to find me at the right time but I rarely have time to look up lyrics to capture a new song, simply hitting the ‘Shazam Icon’ while a song is playing has been the perfect platform to do so almost seamlessly, and the ‘previously Shazamed library’ is super convenient to get back to later so I can add the songs to my playlist when I have more time. My only request, don’t make too many huge upgrades that it becomes a complicated app like so many others do, too many upgrades can overcomplicate a simple useful platform that I have found myself using other apps less due to the fact that I have to re-learn them almost every time I open the app. Thank you creators of Shazam

I absolutely love Shazam. I also love all types of music but especially classical music and especially of the modern genre. I play keyboards and was brought up playing an antique Harmonium (a pedal reed organ) and in a short time became accomplished enough to be the Assistant Organist for a large Presbyterian Church in the Twin City suburb town of Hastings MN. We had a small seven rank but very powerful Pipe Organ which was absolutely a GAS to play full organ even tho I had to sort of wing it on the full 32 note pedal keyboard. Now getting back to my review of Shazam. I think your App comes up short in identifying classical musical tracks and albums. Most serious music lovers prefer to know the Composer first before they know who are the Artists or Artist. I do wish Shazam would provide much more Info on the Classical Music tracks (PLEASE) but thanx a whole lot for what you do do.
I’ve Been Shazam—otized !!!!
by CeceLady on 2018/11/24 01:52
This is the bestest app ever PEOPLE! If you want to know the name of a song and artist this is the app you want. It is so accurate and on point. I always keep Shazam open in the background because I love any kind of music that sounds good to me since I don’t have a preference in music my playlist varies and this is how I use it .......when I am listening to the radio and a new song comes on and I have never heard that song....BAAM! I SHAZAM IT RIGHT AWAY!!!! when a car goes by with a good song that I like, or when I go into any business to shop and they’re playing some nice song I immediately SHAZAM IT......I love the fact that I it also finds latin music not only English music and the app is able to find both languages, and even classical music, well the list goes on. I love it and use it basically everyday. ❤️❤️❤️❤️😊
3.5 stars

The live music lyrics could be better. Like I don’t understand why it hears the lyrics and recognizes if it is an a wrong place and “catches up”, but really, it doesn’t recognize if it’s paused? Can’t even hear any music but it continues as if it does. Pointless feature. And I appreciate that it has lyrics, but some popular songs don’t. They should sync to more than one website for lyrics. The ads aren’t personalized either, and honestly I wish it was. I don’t mind a clothing ad geared towards my interests every now and then, but constantly seeing the same add for AHS Apocalypse while trying to look at lyrics for my worship songs... I keep covering it up with my hands as I read bc I don’t want those kind of frightening images in my head. Being personalized ads, even just variety would be nicer. Don’t want to see the same ad every time I Shazam a song. And auto Shazam doesn’t work that well either
Great app when it works!
by Mathew71 on 2017/12/13 20:53
This app is literally part of my daily routine so I use it quite a lot. However recently I’ve been noticing when I go to play a song using Apple Music through Shazam the entire app just stops working on my iPhone. So I figured it was just my phone acting up but then I went to use it on my iPad and the exact thing happened when I went to the map and tried playing a song. Also a lot of small things about the user interface will just stop working like the back buttons and scrolling on a page. It’s to the point every time after I Shazam a song and try to either add it to Apple Music or Olay it I have to close the app and restart it. Overall I love the app just wish I could use it a bit longer without having to restart it!
Several Issues
by timmc94 on 2017/10/06 04:44
Shazam is a very useful tool, but it does have some issues in this version. For starters, I’d like to modify Notifications Settings… but the link in the app takes me to the front page of Settings and there’s no panel for Shazam available on my new phone. Additionally, when upgrading to a new iPhone I lost access to the ad-free experience I bought into years ago with the since-depreciated Shazam Encore. I’m using the same account as before, but I have ads now… I’ve submitted a ticket and am waiting to hear back. A final complaint would be with Facebook integration. Most apps now show me a page asking to sign in with the Facebook app, which takes me there to authenticate; Shazam, on the other hand, wants me to sign in directly in the app instead of taking me to the Facebook app to do so; this is less secure, sends my data through Shazam for additional lost security, and is just not the way I want to do things. Security and privacy are important in today’s world, and Shazam needs to add simple support for Facebook’s newer secure-authentication system. Other than those issues and occasional minor bugs, Shazam works great. Aside from the emails about the top charts that I can’t seem to turn off in the app for some reason, I enjoy using Shazam and it has proven extremely helpful in identifying music on many occasions.
Good not Great. Stop making it so hard to like you, Shazam
by Two times noforn on 2018/04/09 07:22
The app needs some TLC from a human. My sense is that it has spent too long under the hands of techies and over-aspirational leadership. I‘m a tech guy one; but the app would be better for molding by someone who just loves music and wants to snatch a title. I‘m that, too. The problem, after signing up and upgrading, I find it impossible to get back to the Shazam screen to which I am accustomed - You know, The big blue shazam button. Instead I have some incomprehensible screen with settings of undefined/ non-intuitive meaning; links to other apps; blah; blah. Shazam is not an all encompassing social environment. Stop it, Shazam CEO (or Creative Director or whoever is pitching otherwise). If I can‘t figure it out, I have to delete it and figure something else out. I don‘t want to. Please give me back the blue button; make it easy to get music on the drive by again; and you got my 3 bucks a month for life. Deal?
Reading my mind
by soundz4senses on 2019/01/24 18:40
Shazam has been around for a long time and throughout its development what’s amazing to me is how it has kept up, not only with contemporaneous music but also music from antiquity. There are other amazing apps for music out there - think radioooo - But Shazam really defines the music discovery app process. I only wish that there could be a one button or step process to acquiring the music easily. I’d happily pay a dollar for every song I’ve Shazammed. If they can figure that out a lot of money will be made and a lot of musicians and music lovers will be happy. Musicians because hopefully they’ll get paid for their efforts and music lovers because they’ll have access to the music that they have discovered with Shazam. Well done and keep up the good work.
Really Good!
by Venezuelan Melomaniac... on 2018/12/24 16:32
Nowadays there’s a bunch of apps that perform the same function as Shazam... but they’re the pioneers so I’ve remained with them without even thinking about using something else, and I’ve seen some of those others apps not finding a tune’s name while Shazam is already offering to you the option of playing it through ITunes ...isn’t that pure sweet love? I’ve even find out the name of songs that are been played live! (Of course only with high performance artist/or people using some sampling tracks a long their shows). I’m not a write-reviews-guy ... but for Shazam I decided to do it in gracefully recognition of major gift that is for a music lover to be able to identify new music everyday, anytime and anywhere for years now! 1000% recommended ! 🙏🏽❤️ Peace ya’ll!
Could Be Better
by Davidmaxbaker123 on 2018/01/17 10:00
It IS very useful in finding out the track name, artist, album of a great many songs. It DOES have a few flaws. One flaw is that it occasionally gets a song completely wrong, or associates it with another artist, but that is probably less that 1 % of the time. Another quirk which I don't like is that it frequently defaults to a newer CD compilation album release for a song when what I really wanted was the original album and it's song listings. One thing I like about it is its ability to display an album title exactly how you need to label it in iTunes in order for iTunes to be able to find the album artwork. If your title is just one character off from Shazam, iTunes won't find the artwork and you have to enter it manually. Fix the glitches I described, and it's a five-star app in my book.
Thank you!
by Digital Learning Specialist on 2018/06/19 02:17
Shazam! I do not have enough thank full words for your team. I’ve been using the app for as long as I can remember, but I’ve finally decided to give back to you and post a review. First off, the free aspect is incredible. I hate to say this, but it’s such an incredible app that I’d have no problem paying for what’s free. Next, thanks to the app, I have danced and grooved much harder, because now I can find the music my heart craves! Third, I love the fact that I can prove to my husband I know more music than he does (we use Shazam to Test). Ha. I could list 100 reasons why this software seems to be some of the more radical to hit the market, but I’ll just summarize w a deep and heart-felt thank you for your passion and vision. Amazing app. Works beautifully. Many thumbs up.
This is an awesome app... but mine has been glitching!
by Lysie Lou on 2018/06/23 04:39
I love this app, I’ve had it since it first came out. I like that I can link it to face book, share cool songs that I found on my face book feed or to individual friends. I can even look up the lyrics to the songs that I Shazam. However, for about a month now when ever I go to “my Shazam” to look at the the songs I discovered it kicks me out the app immediately. I have even tried signing out so I could sign back in, in the hopes that it would reset the app... that didn’t help. So I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it again. That didn’t work! So it is for this reason I’m am rating the app 2 stars. It is extremely annoying that I can’t use the app to its fullest. Especially when I enjoyed using the app the way it was intended prior to this issue. So if the developers can fix this glitch I would be happy to give this a app a 5 star rating-once again.
Fork to my Plate
by nvthree on 2018/12/02 09:06
I've been a user since 2009. If music holds any sway in your daily life, Shazam is the fork to your dinner plate. Growing a product from a true mvp to what it is today, over (?) years has to be hard. There's been versions of Shazam I've passionately hated. In hindsight, I could only hate it because was so helpful. Today, so many others use this app just like I do, to record and put name to the soundtrack of their life so they can bring that music back on demand whenever they want. For the last couple years this app has been soundly built. Its my go to for creating playlists and It's connected to my music library. Shazam is how I enhance my time with my family and friends, building the musical backdrop for the best times of my life.
Could be great but doesn’t get the ones you really need
by TxSage17 on 2018/11/23 19:16
I use Shazam just to keep track of songs I like that I know & to test it. It usually fails. When I Don’t know one & love it & really want to find out who it is - Shazam comes up empty. I wish there was some way to store the music so that if it is ever added to the database it will let you know. Currently there is no way of tracking how many it has failed you on. Just now I tried it on Alice’s Restaurant. I expected it to come right up but it could never get it! How can it not recognize an Arlo Guthrie song that has been around for 50 years? The other thing I would like is for it to give the Original release date & album. I don’t care if it was later on a compilation. So it is really fairly useless for most of us but I still play with it & keep hoping they will add these features ...
Great all around music application.
by NickA1441 on 2019/01/23 05:36
The icon on this application is extremely recognizable thanks to its popularity and promotion. It has a 4.9/5 stars on the APP store and it deserves it for its simplicity. Its descreption is simple and clear and does not get much more user friendly than this as you simply push a single button and the APP listens to the song and sends it back to you. Its target audience is defined as anyone who loves music. Its stand out characteristics and content is simply how easy it is to use and how effective it gets the job done. This APP is free for all users. It is innovative in the sense that once you start up the application, all you have to see is the opening page, which is one giant button, making navigation very easy.
Seriously though...
by Emmajay775 on 2018/06/23 13:21
I don’t write reviews. I don’t care that much tbh. However this app is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Yeah I know it sounds sad. However, this app has brought me music I find just the last lyrics on. It’s fast and smooth and saves everything so I don’t have to remember it. This app has brought me music I would have never gone the extra mile to listen too. Bringing me to experiences I’ve never had. Even with no WiFi it saves what it’s hearing. It’s crazy. I was feeling down and I heard this song I used the app on a while back. I looked it up on this app and found something that is almost like personal therapy. I’ve recommended it to all my friends there’s just no beating something as convenient as this.
NOT what it use to be. 👎🙁
by x-_-paiN-_- on 2017/10/29 04:48
Shazam use to be fast & easy after the updates now it takes for ever and it hardly ever finds songs on tv like on movies any more. Specially if not in English or recent songs. I run iPhone 6+ 128 GB so it's not because of space. I miss the sound waves it use to have. Had to try 7 times to find a Willie Nelson song and for another one after 10 attempts I gave up. Developers please make Shazam what it use to be, it doesn't have to be all pretty face as is now I use to spend a lot of time at a time on the app would stay on for 2 - 3 hours listening to music from Shazam but now it's so slow. Also I want to get paid version but how can I if I'm not happy with what I see. Please go back or re update but fix.
Too many changes, too much Greed $$’s
by Colorado0so on 2018/08/18 04:00
When Shazam app first came out, IT was a fantastic product!! and you could Shazam a song on radio, in a car, on TV... and listen to it “”all”” later & see lyrics, share complete song/video with family & friends.... it was a 5-star App... after it was sold... purchased and changed & compromised by ? Apple ... ? ?new ownership.. the immediate Greed for money appeared and then extra music fees, purchases, memberships tainted this once useful App... greed, yes, greed... absolutely destroyed the once marvelous features and freedom of use and listen to songs, many saved & shared.. & CD’s purchased at retailers... Family & friends tell me they seldom use it since all the changes and restrictions and new, greedy charges imposed/required to ‘checkout a song’. I’d have to say... that’s what killed its once, highly rated popularity... Apple Music and Spotfy biggest issues I hear about...$$$’s Good luck !
Poor UX. Hard to Shazam after the first Shazam.
by simplegray on 2018/02/22 23:00
This app does one thing and that one thing is not present on any page in this app after your first Shazam. So dumb. More — The “Shazam” button exists only on the launch page. Once you Shazam and it finds the track, you are forever stuck on the details page of that song. It doesn’t reset back to the Shazam page, ever. And it doesn’t let you swipe to go back (sorry iPhone Plus and X users). If you come back 3 days later to Shazam a song quickly, you’ll still be stuck on the last track you Shazam’d and no quick Shazam button access (read: no ability to Shazam). The only way to do it is to hit little tiny back arrow button perfectly to go back. I have missed so many Shazam chances because I opened Shazam, it lands on the details page of a song I Shazam’d days ago, and I couldn’t quickly hit back with one hand on my phone. Beautifully designed app, poorly thought out UX.
Shazam Is Awesome!
by Hooked on Butterflies on 2018/05/15 21:13
I absolutely love Shazam! My daughter told me about it, so I downloaded it. When new songs play on the radio, the DJs never say the name of the song or artist, so it takes a while to learn who sings them. With Shazam, I never have to worry about it anymore! I’ve used it for TV shows to find out the song and artist and also in a store when they are playing music over the sound system. I have a party every year and start collecting music so I can play it during the party. All I have to do is go to “My Shazam” file to look at all the songs I Shazamed and make my playlist. Sometimes, I can’t understand the words to the song and I’m able to go to the lyrics tab to look them up. It’s the coolest App ever!
Shazam ANYTHING (literally)
by Busyfresh2000 on 2018/06/07 00:24
This is a great app to use to identify ALMOST every song ever, although there are those tracks that no matter how many times you shazam them they won't be identified, even if you know the song and just want to know the artist. My one gripe with this app is that it doesn't match up the tracks properly; it says it's this song, but in reality you know it isn't and you shazam it a few more times, and then the proper song is matched...all in all it's a very useful app, doesn't take much space, and usually can get a match first try... 3.5 out of a possible 5 from me, but I had to give it a 4 due to the fact I can't click on only a half star. This app is 👌 by me... -Busyfresh2000
Not as smart as you’d think
by Aste Spumante on 2017/11/06 01:49
Shazam (at least for me) takes a long time to open to the point where it’s possible to press the Shazam button. Then, it takes a while to recognize the song. Often, a song ends before it can do all that. What usually happens is that I hear a song, then decide in the course of listening that I want to identify it. Then, the above happens and the song ends without being identified. I feel like I’m supposed to start Shazam-ing as soon as the song starts. That doesn’t seem realistic since I need to hear at least some of the song to know that I want to know more about it. Also, it’s not as smart as a human. It seems to recognize data embedded in the song rather than the actual characteristics of the music. If you Shazam a live performance of a well-known song—say, a performance on an NPR show—it will not recognize it.
Not dependable
by handmethefrench on 2018/09/29 03:54
This app only needs to do one thing: tell me what the name of the present song is. It’s not that difficult. Songs don’t last forever, and by the time you realize you like the song, you probably only have a few moments to capture the song with an app, as you juggle with driving your car and getting away from any background noise. Yet, this app cannot the only thing it needs to do. It struggles to load every time, before eventually the button doesn’t respond at all to the touch. If you think updating the app might make it work, you’d be wrong. Admittedly, this might not normally merit the time to draft a negative review, but there’s nothing quite so annoying as having precious few seconds to capture a song and then having your dedicated app fail at its only job. If anyone from the Shazam bureaucracy is reading this, please make whatever simplifications are necessary to this app to make it work.
Instant Gratification
by susanac201 on 2017/10/19 00:21
The first time I learned about Shazam, I was in a music store and heard a song that I liked but didn't know who sang it or what it was called. My friend said, "just 'Shazam' it," and I looked at her like she was nuts. "Shazam? Isn't that what a genie says when granting your wish?" She laughed and showed me -- artist, song, album -- right on her phone. Like magic. If your wish is to discover music, Shazam is your personal genie. Just tap the button and "Shazam!" All the information you need, including the lyrics, instantly appears on your phone. Tap another button and the song or even the entire album is downloading! I love it for its ease of use and reliability. Don't wait for a genie, just Shazam!
I love Shazam!💜💜💜☮️🤓
by Jsp123057 on 2018/06/28 04:02
I absolutely love this app! It is user friendly and very personal! My favorite part of Shazam is.... Ok, I’m riding down the road, listening to the radio or listening to Sirius satellite and I hear a song that takes me back to a certain time in my life and I’m flooded with memories, I can’t think of the name of the song..... Then I remember all I have to do is open the Shazam app, hit the button, wait for a few seconds, then all of a sudden there it is, not only the name of the song but also the name of the artist and the year it came out!!!!!! Wow, it doesn’t get any better than that people!!! I LOVE SHAZAM!!!!! 💜💜💜💜💜😉😉😉 Thank you Shazam for making many dreams come true!!!💋💋💋💋😎😎😁😁
Use this app more than once a day
by Draped In Crimson on 2018/12/14 20:59
To help me create fantastic playlists, buy some of the best music, and to discover sounds perhaps out of my sphere which I use to grow that great roundness & richness of my life. Only problem: it’s not ALL KNOWING. Had some disappointments trying to find choral music, or something symphonic, or not from our usual sources: like The Dmitri Petrovski Singers, or well-known Mozart choral pieces, which is disappointing, because I don’t know all the great composers by heart. And sometimes, when watching tv, trying to Shazam a song while dialogue is also apparent is too difficult, and therefore lost, to my great despair. I hope further iterations will allow me to help distinguish one from the other.
Shazam is my Jam
by Darbren on 2018/09/15 03:58
I LOVE Shazam I use it daily, reminiscing about the good old days or Loving on the New Indie Pop, Folk Music, R&B Or " Let It Be" Shazam is ALWAYS there for me😘 & rarely do I Shazam a song you don't have in your Bank!!! It can become tricky with local Jokers and Particular genres LIKE OUR INFAMOUS NEVER MISTAKEN CAJUN/Zydeco Music From Louisiana which I absolutely LOVE ❤️ Like... Wayne Toups, Jamie Bergeron, (Keith Frank) Yeah!!!oh no scratch Keith He like's to TAUNT Caucasian Music TOO MUCH LOL he'd play into a song everyone would sing😊then Stop (Now tell me whose prejudice when I'm standing there loving your style and stuff then stop & Laugh and go into R&B? What you say??? Still love him though 🤗 From the Stylistics, to the Carpenters, Led-Zeppelin to Doris Day. Rely on Shazam For your Music it's no Faux-Pais! "Que Sera Sera"
Great App
by Njah on 2018/12/10 17:32
Yes, I would recommend it and do recommend it. You all get it about 98 pct of the time. Work on that remaining 2pct for it. I had to go all the way to Costa Rica in 2009 to become aware of you. I was amazed and often still amazed. So keep getting better add as much old school artists of r&b,Jazz , PoP & Folk as possible. Personally not into much Rock but add for those folks with that ear and taste to. It’s only the right thing to do. Happy & Joyous Holidays to ALL at SHAZAM. May 2019 be BETTER for We, the Common People. Nothing against the rich and wealthy but they already do ok. It’s just their Souls they need to Concern themselves with as really we all should. Money is not much of a problem for them. Anyway ON WITH THE MUSIC.
Greatest invention ever.
by Editnickname! on 2018/11/25 06:20
It’s been about 10 years I’ve been using Shazam I’m a D.J. from the 1970s old Hollywood Disco era and this actually helped me go back and be a D.J. again. This allows me to stay ahead of tends keeping all creative mediums fresh as any new sound that begins to pop over the horizon I can grab my iPhone push this app and know within seconds what’s up and who’s doing it. BRILLIANT! IN THE OLDEN TIMES: So as a professional person in music how did we capture new music before Shazam. In the olden days you would look at your watch remember the stations call letters call 411 information get their phone number ask to speak with the program director and see and remember what time it was and then when you got home you could call the program manager of the particular radio station and say that it exactly 1:15 AM what was playing on your station and they went back to an FCC broadcast list and they got back on the phone and they gladly told you the name of the song or the artist and the label that’s how we captured new music in the Stone Age. WOW So I’m still impressed.
Essential Entertainment
by Alixom on 2018/05/16 18:09
Shazam has revealed to me so many songs I’ve listened to years ago only to forget about them and periodically wonder who performed them when I’d hear them every now and then. Most of those songs ended up being one-hit wonders; a state that makes it harder to discover who the original artists were. But Shazam takes away that limitation. Not only do you discover original artists, you also discover their original albums which gives you the opportunity to sample and appreciate other songs that never became mainstream. Shazam is essential to creating and enhancing your own personal music collection and experience.
Excellent App, but my country is not available in Country Charts like it used to be
by DanielGeb22 on 2019/01/15 18:11
This is the best app to search for a music you don’t know its name, and you also got the music charts by country, which was using maps, and it had all the countries in the world, until now, when you updated the app. So there’s no more maps whatsoever, and even in the country listing, my country, which is Lebanon, isn’t available anymore in Music charts for whatever reason. I rate it 4/5 stars because of removing my country’s music charts, and I don’t understand why you did this. I just wish you could add more regions, especially Lebanon which was available but not anymore, to your music charts, and then I would rate it 5 stars. Thank you
Solid performance for years, but the UI went downhill.
by 朱清风 on 2018/08/24 22:43
I’ve been enjoying the use of Shazam for many years now, and have recommended it to countless people who were delighted to know that such a service exists. My only complaints are that (1) the interface has become cluttered and ugly; it looks more like a set of advertisements and social media buttons now than the clean, functional UI that it sported in the past, and (2) sometimes I have lost my pending Shazams while offline, which has been a real shame, as I remember a handful of times that I was really looking forward to getting to the bottom of what I had heard at the next available opportunity. These critiques aside, I’m a big fan of Shazam.
AMAZING !! CLUTCH💪🏼🌎🙌🏼👏🏼✨✨
by A1_Bert_C on 2017/09/27 00:22
Such An amazing App...before Shazam in missed out so many amazing songs that I would hear but would be the one and only time I did ...and it literally made me sad every time that happened, now, after Shazam ...I don't miss out on the songs that touch my soul ...EVEN on the GO! It's that fast and accurate , check this out....EVEN WHEN SOMEONE IS DRIVING BY PLAYING a beautiful song, I just click the Shazam button and in literally less than a second or two, most of the time, INSTANTLY !!! LITERALLY !!! No exaggeration at all, and I usually never write reviews...but Shazam deserves this review...it literally is a perfect app in relation to its promise. GO SHAZAM !! :D⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Amazing app!
by BronzeRecluse on 2017/11/06 16:51
Music is my life! I love discovering new music and always try to keep my library diverse with all my different moods. Before Shazam, I would hear a new song and fall in love with it, not knowing what it was called, but humming that small bit I knew for days until if by chance, someone tells me the name. Or I'd quickly type the lyrics I catch in Google and see if the song popped up. Only worked about half the time. Shazam changed my life because with a simple tap it finds the song in like 2 seconds. And even better it keeps a history of what you've Shazamed as well as adding it to your Apple Music on the spot! Really an A+ app
Good
by MADISON💖💗😎🌴🏀🏉⚾️ on 2018/06/05 20:43
This app is the best! I use it all the time! I am very forgetful! I love music but I forgot the name of every song I here! I like most songs and keeping all the music I don’t know the name of in one app is the best!!! The only thing I wish is that it could be the whole song you get to listen too! I like how you can go on another app and listen to the SHORT piece of music! Another thing is that I don’t like how I scane a song and it said there is no wi-fi and most of the time I scane songs I like usually when I am traveling so I have a song to listen to! But I can’t because I don’t have wi-fi!! That is why I am good no to give you 4 stars! Good job on those good reasons!!!!💗
Doesn’t Work on iPhone X 👎🏻
by PrincessLunaFrost on 2018/02/04 11:44
This app used to be so great. I had it on all of my phones (I owned every iPhone—iPhone 4, 5C, 6 Plus, 7 Plus, 8 Plus and now iPhone X). But every since the iPhone 7 Plus up until my iPhone X it’s not working. 8 out of 10 times it picks up nothing..at all. 1 out of 10 times it gives me the wrong song name. And only 1 out of 10 times it does give me the right song name. This app is bull. Get your act together and fix your app, otherwise I’m going to look to other places to find an app that works at finding the song names. I’m very disappointed Shazam. I used to recommend this app to my friends and now I have to ask other people who have Samsung’s and other phones to Shazam songs for me because this app works next to never on my iPhone X. Please work on your sound recognition software for iPhone X or I’ll delete the app permanently.
Another Great Microsoft App
by gradyzero on 2018/08/16 13:51
Having been an earlier adopter of the now. in abeyance, Windows 10 cell phone I was pleasantly surprised to see that Microsoft had ported this wonderful Win phone app over to iPhone. Originally a function of Cortana on Win Phone 8, in the days before the A10 processor made smart phones fast. Now on iPhone it generally takes less than 5 seconds to identify any music that has not been so remixed as to make it totally unrecognizable. Regardless of music genre or original date of release Shazam can “name that tune” in usually less than 3 measures. Microsoft has done for Apple hardware what Apple has not be able to do in software.
Great App! (Just one suggestion)
by i.opri on 2018/12/13 02:25
I absolutely love the concept of this app! I have been using Siri a lot for finding song names by asking “Siri, what song is this”. But, I decided to get the Shazam app because it was quicker than having to use your voice to activate it. The one thing that I don’t like about it is that it pushes you to have a subscription to Apple Music which I don’t think is relevant to the app’s purpose. To listen to any song you search, you have to pay an additional monthly fee. I wish there just be a free service added to these kinds of apps. In general, this app is efficient, fun, and an amazing development in technology. Thanks to anyone who actually read this! Best, i.opri!!
Can’t give it 5 Stars
by Blair & Christopher on 2018/01/15 16:59
Even though I love the song recognition ability of this app, I’m displeased about several things: 1) Those of us who originally paid the $5 for ad free, etc. have nothing different than those who downloaded the free version. 2) Much ado is made about the time for recognition but the app loading time is forgotten and that is part of what might cause one to “miss” a song. 3) Also, am still finding many songs not recognized (but I do appreciate that it seems to get better all the time). I am happy with the simplified back and forth between Shazam and iTunes. This is a great place to basically list the songs you will go buy from iTunes.
Good. Phone shake is gone. Playback needs improvement
by Stephen DeVore, Seattle on 2018/05/19 22:18
I use this to figure out what songs are playing when I am out, but sometimes I try SoundHound if Shazam doesn't get it. When it recognized a song, it used to shake the phone which I kind of liked. Now, I hold the phone high up in the air closer to a speaker in a restaurant, and I never know whether it is done or not or when it is done. Its ability to recognize songs has slowed down considerably in the last year. Playing back songs is kind of a sucky experience sometimes. I don't seem to be able to have normal playlists in Shazam or Apple Music. Simply being able to re-sort the songs either from the last one I Shazammed or the first one I Shazammed would be really nice. One time I had to reinstall Shazam, a few years back, and I lost all of my data. Keeping data on what we like and don't like is so small, that it should be kept forever. It should not go away if we have not used the app for a few months or years. This should be a true practically of all software, like Netflix!
Shazam review
by Shazam revewer on 2019/02/07 06:32
I have this app 4 out of 5 stars because this is a great app there isn’t any important flaws in its major points, but I think there is more room for improvement and more things that could be added. One example of something that can be added is notes, if you have notes of a list in Shazam where you can write the name, artist, album, etc... and remember that is you want to download this song of find it later to listen to and after finding the information about a song giving you the option to add the information to a note immediately. Thank you for your opportunity to let me give my input.
Spectacular
by Selene Cortez on 2017/11/10 16:33
This app is my go to the moment I hear a great song or when I hear a song I want to know the name of just because. It’s so easy and fast, I love it! I went to Puerto Rico not too long ago and I was able to bring back with me hundreds of songs from there because of Shazam. Sometimes yes it can’t find the song but that’ll be because it’s a remix not out yet or a Mexican song. Which by the way I would appreciate it if you expanded your diversity of music in Spanish. I would recommend this app to all my friends but not my family since it’s for the most part for English music.
It's ok
by Jonnywanabe on 2018/04/17 05:38
It does work often enough for me to keep it on my phone, but I HATE that it automatically makes me "follow" an artist just because I Shazamed it. Not everyone is using the app is a tween with an insane need to post about every aspect of their life on multiple social media platforms. I don't want to follow anyone or get any news about any bands or performers. Let me decide that, don't do it for me. As far as I know, auto following is default and you can't turn it off. Would love to be wrong about that. I frequently miss songs because it takes the app so long to start up and it will often tag the wrong performer doing a song. Same song done by more than one person/band and it picks the wrong one.

by Cory1967 on 2019/02/15 13:29
Great app I use it daily for capturing music for my radio show. Problem is if you do use it often over time you have many duplicates, and there is no way to easily delete them. That could be solved with a simple sort feature so you can sort your Shazams by artist or song title and there you go

Ever since I got an iPhone XS Max, Shazam works about 25% of the time. I could be right next to the sound source and it comes back as “Can’t find a match.” Going to try a different song identifying app.
Has never failed to ID a song
by mikemcgu on 2019/02/14 18:23
But after the latest update, doesn't completely stop pandora that's playing. But when opened or navigating this app, interferes with pandora. When opened or closed or navigating to the feedback menus within the app, temporarily interrupts audio that is being output. This is true on with Pandora at least. Have to change the stars to get devs' attention.

Almost 5 star😬

I’ve never had many probs w/ this app & it has come n handy numerous times but...over the last few months I’ve used it, it has not been that reliable & it was frustrating a few times due to this. If it wrkd 90% of the time or more like it used to(or seemed like it use to always work)I will give 5 stars. Since my opinion is so noble & highly regarded😏

Shazaming offline
by MarioBuilderFan J on 2019/02/13 02:02
When I Shazam a song offline, It says we will name that song when you’re back online. Sometimes there is no match. I am trying to find a certain song. When I heard it, I was overthinking. A female sings it. It’s extremely cute. I heard it at Camp HI Ho. I don’t know the name. I’ll hear it again one day. I will find it one day but I don’t know when. My prediction is April 20 2019 because I might go to Camp HI Ho. If I hear it again April 20, I will say “what is this song.” When I find it, I will listen to it on YouTube and I will buy it on iTunes.
Lori’s blessedly honest opinion!

BEST MUSIC APP EVER!!!
Need to improve the Lyrics section
by Maegan Fahd on 2019/02/12 23:30
I use this app for the song lyrics. I hate the way these are shown now. You no longer can turn it to landscape view. Stay lyrics consistently run a full line behind the song playing on my radio. Yes because it is behind, I have to tell it to show full lyrics. However the lyrics are now printed so tiny that they are too hard to read when needing to read ahead because the app is running a line behind. This app has now become useless to me. While it used to have some stability issues before, I much preferred the old version where I could at least turn the lyrics to landscape view and when it did sometimes get behind the song, I could manage to read the next lyrics

Latest version is faster and doesn’t get jammed like the previous one. But, a big BUT, album title, release date, label are not shown. And in history that data has been removed. I’m so tired of every app trying to be a social media platform. All you get now with the song title is share, lyrics, video and a chance to buy it in the Apple Music. It’s dumber now.
Need to fix
by Shakur4 on 2019/02/12 22:52
I wish the newest songs will appear on the Top of the Playlist in Apple Music as suppose to the bottom. I hate the fact I have to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the song I just “Shazzamed”

Devs ruining this app.
by Numlux on 2019/02/12 19:56
Loved this app when it was one simple button to reveal the music, but now I hate all the visual tumultuous by adding social media and millions of ways to buy the music. Simplicity is key, but this is not. Also, takes too long to sample the music. Use to be quicker, so a lot of time I miss the music before it get a chance to sample. The devs are ruining it.

I’m not usually someone to write a review but I kinda paused and realized I’ve been a shazam user for 7 years and each phone I’ve had I’ve never had any other song searching app so it must be good🤘🏻
Love it

Best App ever

The clothes every song every artist ever maid best app ever
Pls broaden the variety of less popular music searches
by Goku's wife on 2018/08/30 13:51
First off I want to say We love what this apps ability is suppose to do and does for most popular songs but ....The only thing I have to complain about is that it’s actually kind of slow finding the song or doesn’t find the song at all for what we listen to. And that just defeats the point of having this awesome app. there is not enough knowledge on underground music only mainstream really or what’s popular on the radio. Very few songs we listen to. I mean if it’s popular you normally know the songs name but this app is suppose to help identify songs you don’t know or are rare and it does NOT do that! Pls update for all music genres underground please! Or less popular music groups. This app has failed me so many because of this! Examples are twiztid, amb, everlast, icp, chance the rapper, boondox, action Bronson, 6lack, caskey, merkules, phora these are just a few off the top of my head. Other than these two problems the app is great but that dropped a star for each issue we have with this app which is very fair to us. If this was fixed it would be 5 Star all the way but unfortunately it is only worthy of a 3 Star at the moment.
It is the technology I have been waiting for since 1990...
by Johnny Andres Parker on 2017/10/20 02:27
There have been songs that truly have been ingrained in my life since 91' where I never knew who the hell was the artist or song. On a tv show, a random commercial, etc. that have slipped through my fingers and traveled onward into the dark distance. I never caught the artist or the song. And I would sing these songs carving down the mountain or riding a wave internally for all this time.. When Shazam came out it literally changed my life on this earth. I finally have found what I have been searching for. You Shazam have found what I have been searching for. Now I use it anytime I feel moved in hearing a song at a store, a party, a commercial, a Movie. It has made me a better person. We are finally entering an age where the shadow of the sun is no longer. I beckon the suns musicals waves with the power of Shazam! Thank you my friend! You are a beautiful creation.
Apple made it worse
by Startrout on 2018/12/26 20:08
Shazam was one of the most inventive and useful apps ever created. I’ve been using it since the beginning. For many years it was rumored that Apple would buy Shazam - usually a good thing. Apple tends to make software better after they buyer it (well except for all the professional applications they discontinued after purchasing so they could use pieces of their technology in other, non professional, consumer applications/apps). In this case, Apple made it much harder to link to and buy songs in the iTunes music store. Instead they want to force you to use Apple Music which I have no need for at all with my very large collection of music I already own. Unfortunately, I’m going to switch to another competitor app, which I hate to do. I’m a huge Apple fan, but this app doesn’t work for me any longer. Fortunately, there’s not many songs I like that I don’t already own, so it won’t be that big an inconvenience in my case. These company’s just don’t want you to own anything anymore, they want that consistent monthly income from you renting everything. I hate revolving dept.
Useful
by RedNightingale on 2018/12/14 14:44
Okay, so I may not be musically talented, but I’m definitely a huge music fan. I’m always down to listen to new music. No matter where I am, when I hear a good song over the radio or in a store, I Shazam it and it helps me identify it. It’s so much easier than using Siri or Googling lyrics. And every now and then, I’ll use the app to try and understand a song’s lyrics. However, my only issue with the app is the format. I don’t know what it is about it, but it’s slightly confusing and obnoxious. I never use the discover page in the app for this reason. Although, I’m not sure I would use it even if the layout was better. And for those of you who are complaining about the app not recognizing songs, I don’t think it’s because the app doesn’t know it. I just think you are simply doing it wrong. I had that issue at first. The app best identifies songs when you open it and wait a few seconds before “Shazaming” a song.
Wham Bham Shazam
by An English/Art Brain on 2018/05/19 17:03
I’ve used Shazam since I got my first iPhone back in 2011. Overall, it’s been super helpful, especially when I’m in a store or somewhere that I can’t just ask what song is playing. However, I’ve been frustrated with the app the past several times I’ve used it. First off, the app was slow to launch. Secondly, once I pressed the Shazam button it was then slow to figure out what the song was. In several instances the song ended before the app even started Shazam-ing. That was super annoying, but I just figured out how to set it to start Shazam-ing upon launching. Hopefully will fix the problem. (And hopefully it’s not just that my iPhone 6 is just senile.) Another feature that I just discovered for myself is the ability to connect Shazam to my Apple Music app! It even adds a playlist of all my Shazam-ed songs. Since I subscribe to Apple Music I can listen to them immediately and whenever I want.
Shazaman! Searchin!
by allen enriquez on 2018/04/28 23:46
I’ve been using Shazam for over 10 years I barely thought about giving it a review. Not that it really needs it, because many people already know about the app globally. It’s the best app to see what artist/tv/movie/radio is playing! I remembered when I first used it when 3G was barely the next gen with it at these speeds it made it so much better to search for the details without any needs to going the the webpage or anything else it is at your fingertips just one click their is a way to say “Shazam” to start the searching. I am not to sure if it works with everything. Most o the type I find my self just using Siri to do most of my stuff while moving around. It’s a very useful app because you may what to know what movie someone is watching or a friend my want to know without interrupting the movie they can search seamlessly!
Sixth Love Language
by Gabrirl Peme on 2018/08/27 15:41
I absolutely love Shazam. I, like so many others have been able to vibe with life connecting through music; the right song always seems to find me at the right time but I rarely have time to look up lyrics to capture a new song, simply hitting the ‘Shazam Icon’ while a song is playing has been the perfect platform to do so almost seamlessly, and the ‘previously Shazamed library’ is super convenient to get back to later so I can add the songs to my playlist when I have more time. My only request, don’t make too many huge upgrades that it becomes a complicated app like so many others do, too many upgrades can overcomplicate a simple useful platform that I have found myself using other apps less due to the fact that I have to re-learn them almost every time I open the app. Thank you creators of Shazam
Classical and Modern Serious Music.
by iggaboo on 2018/08/26 17:30
I absolutely love Shazam. I also love all types of music but especially classical music and especially of the modern genre. I play keyboards and was brought up playing an antique Harmonium (a pedal reed organ) and in a short time became accomplished enough to be the Assistant Organist for a large Presbyterian Church in the Twin City suburb town of Hastings MN. We had a small seven rank but very powerful Pipe Organ which was absolutely a GAS to play full organ even tho I had to sort of wing it on the full 32 note pedal keyboard. Now getting back to my review of Shazam. I think your App comes up short in identifying classical musical tracks and albums. Most serious music lovers prefer to know the Composer first before they know who are the Artists or Artist. I do wish Shazam would provide much more Info on the Classical Music tracks (PLEASE) but thanx a whole lot for what you do do.
I’ve Been Shazam—otized !!!!
by CeceLady on 2018/11/24 01:52
This is the bestest app ever PEOPLE! If you want to know the name of a song and artist this is the app you want. It is so accurate and on point. I always keep Shazam open in the background because I love any kind of music that sounds good to me since I don’t have a preference in music my playlist varies and this is how I use it .......when I am listening to the radio and a new song comes on and I have never heard that song....BAAM! I SHAZAM IT RIGHT AWAY!!!! when a car goes by with a good song that I like, or when I go into any business to shop and they’re playing some nice song I immediately SHAZAM IT......I love the fact that I it also finds latin music not only English music and the app is able to find both languages, and even classical music, well the list goes on. I love it and use it basically everyday. ❤️❤️❤️❤️😊
3.5 stars
by 12356890673Abi on 2018/08/31 04:59
The live music lyrics could be better. Like I don’t understand why it hears the lyrics and recognizes if it is an a wrong place and “catches up”, but really, it doesn’t recognize if it’s paused? Can’t even hear any music but it continues as if it does. Pointless feature. And I appreciate that it has lyrics, but some popular songs don’t. They should sync to more than one website for lyrics. The ads aren’t personalized either, and honestly I wish it was. I don’t mind a clothing ad geared towards my interests every now and then, but constantly seeing the same add for AHS Apocalypse while trying to look at lyrics for my worship songs... I keep covering it up with my hands as I read bc I don’t want those kind of frightening images in my head. Being personalized ads, even just variety would be nicer. Don’t want to see the same ad every time I Shazam a song. And auto Shazam doesn’t work that well either
Great app when it works!
by Mathew71 on 2017/12/13 20:53
This app is literally part of my daily routine so I use it quite a lot. However recently I’ve been noticing when I go to play a song using Apple Music through Shazam the entire app just stops working on my iPhone. So I figured it was just my phone acting up but then I went to use it on my iPad and the exact thing happened when I went to the map and tried playing a song. Also a lot of small things about the user interface will just stop working like the back buttons and scrolling on a page. It’s to the point every time after I Shazam a song and try to either add it to Apple Music or Olay it I have to close the app and restart it. Overall I love the app just wish I could use it a bit longer without having to restart it!
Several Issues
by timmc94 on 2017/10/06 04:44
Shazam is a very useful tool, but it does have some issues in this version. For starters, I’d like to modify Notifications Settings… but the link in the app takes me to the front page of Settings and there’s no panel for Shazam available on my new phone. Additionally, when upgrading to a new iPhone I lost access to the ad-free experience I bought into years ago with the since-depreciated Shazam Encore. I’m using the same account as before, but I have ads now… I’ve submitted a ticket and am waiting to hear back. A final complaint would be with Facebook integration. Most apps now show me a page asking to sign in with the Facebook app, which takes me there to authenticate; Shazam, on the other hand, wants me to sign in directly in the app instead of taking me to the Facebook app to do so; this is less secure, sends my data through Shazam for additional lost security, and is just not the way I want to do things. Security and privacy are important in today’s world, and Shazam needs to add simple support for Facebook’s newer secure-authentication system. Other than those issues and occasional minor bugs, Shazam works great. Aside from the emails about the top charts that I can’t seem to turn off in the app for some reason, I enjoy using Shazam and it has proven extremely helpful in identifying music on many occasions.
Good not Great. Stop making it so hard to like you, Shazam
by Two times noforn on 2018/04/09 07:22
The app needs some TLC from a human. My sense is that it has spent too long under the hands of techies and over-aspirational leadership. I‘m a tech guy one; but the app would be better for molding by someone who just loves music and wants to snatch a title. I‘m that, too. The problem, after signing up and upgrading, I find it impossible to get back to the Shazam screen to which I am accustomed - You know, The big blue shazam button. Instead I have some incomprehensible screen with settings of undefined/ non-intuitive meaning; links to other apps; blah; blah. Shazam is not an all encompassing social environment. Stop it, Shazam CEO (or Creative Director or whoever is pitching otherwise). If I can‘t figure it out, I have to delete it and figure something else out. I don‘t want to. Please give me back the blue button; make it easy to get music on the drive by again; and you got my 3 bucks a month for life. Deal?
Reading my mind
by soundz4senses on 2019/01/24 18:40
Shazam has been around for a long time and throughout its development what’s amazing to me is how it has kept up, not only with contemporaneous music but also music from antiquity. There are other amazing apps for music out there - think radioooo - But Shazam really defines the music discovery app process. I only wish that there could be a one button or step process to acquiring the music easily. I’d happily pay a dollar for every song I’ve Shazammed. If they can figure that out a lot of money will be made and a lot of musicians and music lovers will be happy. Musicians because hopefully they’ll get paid for their efforts and music lovers because they’ll have access to the music that they have discovered with Shazam. Well done and keep up the good work.
Really Good!
by Venezuelan Melomaniac... on 2018/12/24 16:32
Nowadays there’s a bunch of apps that perform the same function as Shazam... but they’re the pioneers so I’ve remained with them without even thinking about using something else, and I’ve seen some of those others apps not finding a tune’s name while Shazam is already offering to you the option of playing it through ITunes ...isn’t that pure sweet love? I’ve even find out the name of songs that are been played live! (Of course only with high performance artist/or people using some sampling tracks a long their shows). I’m not a write-reviews-guy ... but for Shazam I decided to do it in gracefully recognition of major gift that is for a music lover to be able to identify new music everyday, anytime and anywhere for years now! 1000% recommended ! 🙏🏽❤️ Peace ya’ll!
Could Be Better
by Davidmaxbaker123 on 2018/01/17 10:00
It IS very useful in finding out the track name, artist, album of a great many songs. It DOES have a few flaws. One flaw is that it occasionally gets a song completely wrong, or associates it with another artist, but that is probably less that 1 % of the time. Another quirk which I don't like is that it frequently defaults to a newer CD compilation album release for a song when what I really wanted was the original album and it's song listings. One thing I like about it is its ability to display an album title exactly how you need to label it in iTunes in order for iTunes to be able to find the album artwork. If your title is just one character off from Shazam, iTunes won't find the artwork and you have to enter it manually. Fix the glitches I described, and it's a five-star app in my book.
Thank you!
by Digital Learning Specialist on 2018/06/19 02:17
Shazam! I do not have enough thank full words for your team. I’ve been using the app for as long as I can remember, but I’ve finally decided to give back to you and post a review. First off, the free aspect is incredible. I hate to say this, but it’s such an incredible app that I’d have no problem paying for what’s free. Next, thanks to the app, I have danced and grooved much harder, because now I can find the music my heart craves! Third, I love the fact that I can prove to my husband I know more music than he does (we use Shazam to Test). Ha. I could list 100 reasons why this software seems to be some of the more radical to hit the market, but I’ll just summarize w a deep and heart-felt thank you for your passion and vision. Amazing app. Works beautifully. Many thumbs up.
This is an awesome app... but mine has been glitching!
by Lysie Lou on 2018/06/23 04:39
I love this app, I’ve had it since it first came out. I like that I can link it to face book, share cool songs that I found on my face book feed or to individual friends. I can even look up the lyrics to the songs that I Shazam. However, for about a month now when ever I go to “my Shazam” to look at the the songs I discovered it kicks me out the app immediately. I have even tried signing out so I could sign back in, in the hopes that it would reset the app... that didn’t help. So I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it again. That didn’t work! So it is for this reason I’m am rating the app 2 stars. It is extremely annoying that I can’t use the app to its fullest. Especially when I enjoyed using the app the way it was intended prior to this issue. So if the developers can fix this glitch I would be happy to give this a app a 5 star rating-once again.
Fork to my Plate
by nvthree on 2018/12/02 09:06
I've been a user since 2009. If music holds any sway in your daily life, Shazam is the fork to your dinner plate. Growing a product from a true mvp to what it is today, over (?) years has to be hard. There's been versions of Shazam I've passionately hated. In hindsight, I could only hate it because was so helpful. Today, so many others use this app just like I do, to record and put name to the soundtrack of their life so they can bring that music back on demand whenever they want. For the last couple years this app has been soundly built. Its my go to for creating playlists and It's connected to my music library. Shazam is how I enhance my time with my family and friends, building the musical backdrop for the best times of my life.
Could be great but doesn’t get the ones you really need
by TxSage17 on 2018/11/23 19:16
I use Shazam just to keep track of songs I like that I know & to test it. It usually fails. When I Don’t know one & love it & really want to find out who it is - Shazam comes up empty. I wish there was some way to store the music so that if it is ever added to the database it will let you know. Currently there is no way of tracking how many it has failed you on. Just now I tried it on Alice’s Restaurant. I expected it to come right up but it could never get it! How can it not recognize an Arlo Guthrie song that has been around for 50 years? The other thing I would like is for it to give the Original release date & album. I don’t care if it was later on a compilation. So it is really fairly useless for most of us but I still play with it & keep hoping they will add these features ...
Great all around music application.
by NickA1441 on 2019/01/23 05:36
The icon on this application is extremely recognizable thanks to its popularity and promotion. It has a 4.9/5 stars on the APP store and it deserves it for its simplicity. Its descreption is simple and clear and does not get much more user friendly than this as you simply push a single button and the APP listens to the song and sends it back to you. Its target audience is defined as anyone who loves music. Its stand out characteristics and content is simply how easy it is to use and how effective it gets the job done. This APP is free for all users. It is innovative in the sense that once you start up the application, all you have to see is the opening page, which is one giant button, making navigation very easy.
Seriously though...
by Emmajay775 on 2018/06/23 13:21
I don’t write reviews. I don’t care that much tbh. However this app is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Yeah I know it sounds sad. However, this app has brought me music I find just the last lyrics on. It’s fast and smooth and saves everything so I don’t have to remember it. This app has brought me music I would have never gone the extra mile to listen too. Bringing me to experiences I’ve never had. Even with no WiFi it saves what it’s hearing. It’s crazy. I was feeling down and I heard this song I used the app on a while back. I looked it up on this app and found something that is almost like personal therapy. I’ve recommended it to all my friends there’s just no beating something as convenient as this.
NOT what it use to be. 👎🙁
by x-_-paiN-_- on 2017/10/29 04:48
Shazam use to be fast & easy after the updates now it takes for ever and it hardly ever finds songs on tv like on movies any more. Specially if not in English or recent songs. I run iPhone 6+ 128 GB so it's not because of space. I miss the sound waves it use to have. Had to try 7 times to find a Willie Nelson song and for another one after 10 attempts I gave up. Developers please make Shazam what it use to be, it doesn't have to be all pretty face as is now I use to spend a lot of time at a time on the app would stay on for 2 - 3 hours listening to music from Shazam but now it's so slow. Also I want to get paid version but how can I if I'm not happy with what I see. Please go back or re update but fix.
Too many changes, too much Greed $$’s
by Colorado0so on 2018/08/18 04:00
When Shazam app first came out, IT was a fantastic product!! and you could Shazam a song on radio, in a car, on TV... and listen to it “”all”” later & see lyrics, share complete song/video with family & friends.... it was a 5-star App... after it was sold... purchased and changed & compromised by ? Apple ... ? ?new ownership.. the immediate Greed for money appeared and then extra music fees, purchases, memberships tainted this once useful App... greed, yes, greed... absolutely destroyed the once marvelous features and freedom of use and listen to songs, many saved & shared.. & CD’s purchased at retailers... Family & friends tell me they seldom use it since all the changes and restrictions and new, greedy charges imposed/required to ‘checkout a song’. I’d have to say... that’s what killed its once, highly rated popularity... Apple Music and Spotfy biggest issues I hear about...$$$’s Good luck !
Poor UX. Hard to Shazam after the first Shazam.
by simplegray on 2018/02/22 23:00
This app does one thing and that one thing is not present on any page in this app after your first Shazam. So dumb. More — The “Shazam” button exists only on the launch page. Once you Shazam and it finds the track, you are forever stuck on the details page of that song. It doesn’t reset back to the Shazam page, ever. And it doesn’t let you swipe to go back (sorry iPhone Plus and X users). If you come back 3 days later to Shazam a song quickly, you’ll still be stuck on the last track you Shazam’d and no quick Shazam button access (read: no ability to Shazam). The only way to do it is to hit little tiny back arrow button perfectly to go back. I have missed so many Shazam chances because I opened Shazam, it lands on the details page of a song I Shazam’d days ago, and I couldn’t quickly hit back with one hand on my phone. Beautifully designed app, poorly thought out UX.
Shazam Is Awesome!
by Hooked on Butterflies on 2018/05/15 21:13
I absolutely love Shazam! My daughter told me about it, so I downloaded it. When new songs play on the radio, the DJs never say the name of the song or artist, so it takes a while to learn who sings them. With Shazam, I never have to worry about it anymore! I’ve used it for TV shows to find out the song and artist and also in a store when they are playing music over the sound system. I have a party every year and start collecting music so I can play it during the party. All I have to do is go to “My Shazam” file to look at all the songs I Shazamed and make my playlist. Sometimes, I can’t understand the words to the song and I’m able to go to the lyrics tab to look them up. It’s the coolest App ever!
Shazam ANYTHING (literally)
by Busyfresh2000 on 2018/06/07 00:24
This is a great app to use to identify ALMOST every song ever, although there are those tracks that no matter how many times you shazam them they won't be identified, even if you know the song and just want to know the artist. My one gripe with this app is that it doesn't match up the tracks properly; it says it's this song, but in reality you know it isn't and you shazam it a few more times, and then the proper song is matched...all in all it's a very useful app, doesn't take much space, and usually can get a match first try... 3.5 out of a possible 5 from me, but I had to give it a 4 due to the fact I can't click on only a half star. This app is 👌 by me... -Busyfresh2000
Not as smart as you’d think
by Aste Spumante on 2017/11/06 01:49
Shazam (at least for me) takes a long time to open to the point where it’s possible to press the Shazam button. Then, it takes a while to recognize the song. Often, a song ends before it can do all that. What usually happens is that I hear a song, then decide in the course of listening that I want to identify it. Then, the above happens and the song ends without being identified. I feel like I’m supposed to start Shazam-ing as soon as the song starts. That doesn’t seem realistic since I need to hear at least some of the song to know that I want to know more about it. Also, it’s not as smart as a human. It seems to recognize data embedded in the song rather than the actual characteristics of the music. If you Shazam a live performance of a well-known song—say, a performance on an NPR show—it will not recognize it.
Not dependable
by handmethefrench on 2018/09/29 03:54
This app only needs to do one thing: tell me what the name of the present song is. It’s not that difficult. Songs don’t last forever, and by the time you realize you like the song, you probably only have a few moments to capture the song with an app, as you juggle with driving your car and getting away from any background noise. Yet, this app cannot the only thing it needs to do. It struggles to load every time, before eventually the button doesn’t respond at all to the touch. If you think updating the app might make it work, you’d be wrong. Admittedly, this might not normally merit the time to draft a negative review, but there’s nothing quite so annoying as having precious few seconds to capture a song and then having your dedicated app fail at its only job. If anyone from the Shazam bureaucracy is reading this, please make whatever simplifications are necessary to this app to make it work.
Instant Gratification
by susanac201 on 2017/10/19 00:21
The first time I learned about Shazam, I was in a music store and heard a song that I liked but didn't know who sang it or what it was called. My friend said, "just 'Shazam' it," and I looked at her like she was nuts. "Shazam? Isn't that what a genie says when granting your wish?" She laughed and showed me -- artist, song, album -- right on her phone. Like magic. If your wish is to discover music, Shazam is your personal genie. Just tap the button and "Shazam!" All the information you need, including the lyrics, instantly appears on your phone. Tap another button and the song or even the entire album is downloading! I love it for its ease of use and reliability. Don't wait for a genie, just Shazam!
I love Shazam!💜💜💜☮️🤓
by Jsp123057 on 2018/06/28 04:02
I absolutely love this app! It is user friendly and very personal! My favorite part of Shazam is.... Ok, I’m riding down the road, listening to the radio or listening to Sirius satellite and I hear a song that takes me back to a certain time in my life and I’m flooded with memories, I can’t think of the name of the song..... Then I remember all I have to do is open the Shazam app, hit the button, wait for a few seconds, then all of a sudden there it is, not only the name of the song but also the name of the artist and the year it came out!!!!!! Wow, it doesn’t get any better than that people!!! I LOVE SHAZAM!!!!! 💜💜💜💜💜😉😉😉 Thank you Shazam for making many dreams come true!!!💋💋💋💋😎😎😁😁
Use this app more than once a day
by Draped In Crimson on 2018/12/14 20:59
To help me create fantastic playlists, buy some of the best music, and to discover sounds perhaps out of my sphere which I use to grow that great roundness & richness of my life. Only problem: it’s not ALL KNOWING. Had some disappointments trying to find choral music, or something symphonic, or not from our usual sources: like The Dmitri Petrovski Singers, or well-known Mozart choral pieces, which is disappointing, because I don’t know all the great composers by heart. And sometimes, when watching tv, trying to Shazam a song while dialogue is also apparent is too difficult, and therefore lost, to my great despair. I hope further iterations will allow me to help distinguish one from the other.

I LOVE Shazam I use it daily, reminiscing about the good old days or Loving on the New Indie Pop, Folk Music, R&B Or " Let It Be" Shazam is ALWAYS there for me😘 & rarely do I Shazam a song you don't have in your Bank!!! It can become tricky with local Jokers and Particular genres LIKE OUR INFAMOUS NEVER MISTAKEN CAJUN/Zydeco Music From Louisiana which I absolutely LOVE ❤️ Like... Wayne Toups, Jamie Bergeron, (Keith Frank) Yeah!!!oh no scratch Keith He like's to TAUNT Caucasian Music TOO MUCH LOL he'd play into a song everyone would sing😊then Stop (Now tell me whose prejudice when I'm standing there loving your style and stuff then stop & Laugh and go into R&B? What you say??? Still love him though 🤗 From the Stylistics, to the Carpenters, Led-Zeppelin to Doris Day. Rely on Shazam For your Music it's no Faux-Pais! "Que Sera Sera"
Great App

Yes, I would recommend it and do recommend it. You all get it about 98 pct of the time. Work on that remaining 2pct for it. I had to go all the way to Costa Rica in 2009 to become aware of you. I was amazed and often still amazed. So keep getting better add as much old school artists of r&b,Jazz , PoP & Folk as possible. Personally not into much Rock but add for those folks with that ear and taste to. It’s only the right thing to do. Happy & Joyous Holidays to ALL at SHAZAM. May 2019 be BETTER for We, the Common People. Nothing against the rich and wealthy but they already do ok. It’s just their Souls they need to Concern themselves with as really we all should. Money is not much of a problem for them. Anyway ON WITH THE MUSIC.
Greatest invention ever.

It’s been about 10 years I’ve been using Shazam I’m a D.J. from the 1970s old Hollywood Disco era and this actually helped me go back and be a D.J. again. This allows me to stay ahead of tends keeping all creative mediums fresh as any new sound that begins to pop over the horizon I can grab my iPhone push this app and know within seconds what’s up and who’s doing it. BRILLIANT! IN THE OLDEN TIMES: So as a professional person in music how did we capture new music before Shazam. In the olden days you would look at your watch remember the stations call letters call 411 information get their phone number ask to speak with the program director and see and remember what time it was and then when you got home you could call the program manager of the particular radio station and say that it exactly 1:15 AM what was playing on your station and they went back to an FCC broadcast list and they got back on the phone and they gladly told you the name of the song or the artist and the label that’s how we captured new music in the Stone Age. WOW So I’m still impressed.
Essential Entertainment

Shazam has revealed to me so many songs I’ve listened to years ago only to forget about them and periodically wonder who performed them when I’d hear them every now and then. Most of those songs ended up being one-hit wonders; a state that makes it harder to discover who the original artists were. But Shazam takes away that limitation. Not only do you discover original artists, you also discover their original albums which gives you the opportunity to sample and appreciate other songs that never became mainstream. Shazam is essential to creating and enhancing your own personal music collection and experience.
Excellent App, but my country is not available in Country Charts like it used to be
by DanielGeb22 on 2019/01/15 18:11
This is the best app to search for a music you don’t know its name, and you also got the music charts by country, which was using maps, and it had all the countries in the world, until now, when you updated the app. So there’s no more maps whatsoever, and even in the country listing, my country, which is Lebanon, isn’t available anymore in Music charts for whatever reason. I rate it 4/5 stars because of removing my country’s music charts, and I don’t understand why you did this. I just wish you could add more regions, especially Lebanon which was available but not anymore, to your music charts, and then I would rate it 5 stars. Thank you
Solid performance for years, but the UI went downhill.
by 朱清风 on 2018/08/24 22:43
I’ve been enjoying the use of Shazam for many years now, and have recommended it to countless people who were delighted to know that such a service exists. My only complaints are that (1) the interface has become cluttered and ugly; it looks more like a set of advertisements and social media buttons now than the clean, functional UI that it sported in the past, and (2) sometimes I have lost my pending Shazams while offline, which has been a real shame, as I remember a handful of times that I was really looking forward to getting to the bottom of what I had heard at the next available opportunity. These critiques aside, I’m a big fan of Shazam.
AMAZING !! CLUTCH💪🏼🌎🙌🏼👏🏼✨✨
by A1_Bert_C on 2017/09/27 00:22
Such An amazing App...before Shazam in missed out so many amazing songs that I would hear but would be the one and only time I did ...and it literally made me sad every time that happened, now, after Shazam ...I don't miss out on the songs that touch my soul ...EVEN on the GO! It's that fast and accurate , check this out....EVEN WHEN SOMEONE IS DRIVING BY PLAYING a beautiful song, I just click the Shazam button and in literally less than a second or two, most of the time, INSTANTLY !!! LITERALLY !!! No exaggeration at all, and I usually never write reviews...but Shazam deserves this review...it literally is a perfect app in relation to its promise. GO SHAZAM !! :D⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Amazing app!
by BronzeRecluse on 2017/11/06 16:51
Music is my life! I love discovering new music and always try to keep my library diverse with all my different moods. Before Shazam, I would hear a new song and fall in love with it, not knowing what it was called, but humming that small bit I knew for days until if by chance, someone tells me the name. Or I'd quickly type the lyrics I catch in Google and see if the song popped up. Only worked about half the time. Shazam changed my life because with a simple tap it finds the song in like 2 seconds. And even better it keeps a history of what you've Shazamed as well as adding it to your Apple Music on the spot! Really an A+ app
Good
by MADISON💖💗😎🌴🏀🏉⚾️ on 2018/06/05 20:43
This app is the best! I use it all the time! I am very forgetful! I love music but I forgot the name of every song I here! I like most songs and keeping all the music I don’t know the name of in one app is the best!!! The only thing I wish is that it could be the whole song you get to listen too! I like how you can go on another app and listen to the SHORT piece of music! Another thing is that I don’t like how I scane a song and it said there is no wi-fi and most of the time I scane songs I like usually when I am traveling so I have a song to listen to! But I can’t because I don’t have wi-fi!! That is why I am good no to give you 4 stars! Good job on those good reasons!!!!💗
Doesn’t Work on iPhone X 👎🏻
by PrincessLunaFrost on 2018/02/04 11:44
This app used to be so great. I had it on all of my phones (I owned every iPhone—iPhone 4, 5C, 6 Plus, 7 Plus, 8 Plus and now iPhone X). But every since the iPhone 7 Plus up until my iPhone X it’s not working. 8 out of 10 times it picks up nothing..at all. 1 out of 10 times it gives me the wrong song name. And only 1 out of 10 times it does give me the right song name. This app is bull. Get your act together and fix your app, otherwise I’m going to look to other places to find an app that works at finding the song names. I’m very disappointed Shazam. I used to recommend this app to my friends and now I have to ask other people who have Samsung’s and other phones to Shazam songs for me because this app works next to never on my iPhone X. Please work on your sound recognition software for iPhone X or I’ll delete the app permanently.
Another Great Microsoft App
by gradyzero on 2018/08/16 13:51
Having been an earlier adopter of the now. in abeyance, Windows 10 cell phone I was pleasantly surprised to see that Microsoft had ported this wonderful Win phone app over to iPhone. Originally a function of Cortana on Win Phone 8, in the days before the A10 processor made smart phones fast. Now on iPhone it generally takes less than 5 seconds to identify any music that has not been so remixed as to make it totally unrecognizable. Regardless of music genre or original date of release Shazam can “name that tune” in usually less than 3 measures. Microsoft has done for Apple hardware what Apple has not be able to do in software.
Great App! (Just one suggestion)
by i.opri on 2018/12/13 02:25
I absolutely love the concept of this app! I have been using Siri a lot for finding song names by asking “Siri, what song is this”. But, I decided to get the Shazam app because it was quicker than having to use your voice to activate it. The one thing that I don’t like about it is that it pushes you to have a subscription to Apple Music which I don’t think is relevant to the app’s purpose. To listen to any song you search, you have to pay an additional monthly fee. I wish there just be a free service added to these kinds of apps. In general, this app is efficient, fun, and an amazing development in technology. Thanks to anyone who actually read this! Best, i.opri!!
Can’t give it 5 Stars
by Blair & Christopher on 2018/01/15 16:59
Even though I love the song recognition ability of this app, I’m displeased about several things: 1) Those of us who originally paid the $5 for ad free, etc. have nothing different than those who downloaded the free version. 2) Much ado is made about the time for recognition but the app loading time is forgotten and that is part of what might cause one to “miss” a song. 3) Also, am still finding many songs not recognized (but I do appreciate that it seems to get better all the time). I am happy with the simplified back and forth between Shazam and iTunes. This is a great place to basically list the songs you will go buy from iTunes.
Good. Phone shake is gone. Playback needs improvement
by Stephen DeVore, Seattle on 2018/05/19 22:18
I use this to figure out what songs are playing when I am out, but sometimes I try SoundHound if Shazam doesn't get it. When it recognized a song, it used to shake the phone which I kind of liked. Now, I hold the phone high up in the air closer to a speaker in a restaurant, and I never know whether it is done or not or when it is done. Its ability to recognize songs has slowed down considerably in the last year. Playing back songs is kind of a sucky experience sometimes. I don't seem to be able to have normal playlists in Shazam or Apple Music. Simply being able to re-sort the songs either from the last one I Shazammed or the first one I Shazammed would be really nice. One time I had to reinstall Shazam, a few years back, and I lost all of my data. Keeping data on what we like and don't like is so small, that it should be kept forever. It should not go away if we have not used the app for a few months or years. This should be a true practically of all software, like Netflix!
Shazam review
by Shazam revewer on 2019/02/07 06:32
I have this app 4 out of 5 stars because this is a great app there isn’t any important flaws in its major points, but I think there is more room for improvement and more things that could be added. One example of something that can be added is notes, if you have notes of a list in Shazam where you can write the name, artist, album, etc... and remember that is you want to download this song of find it later to listen to and after finding the information about a song giving you the option to add the information to a note immediately. Thank you for your opportunity to let me give my input.
Spectacular
by Selene Cortez on 2017/11/10 16:33
This app is my go to the moment I hear a great song or when I hear a song I want to know the name of just because. It’s so easy and fast, I love it! I went to Puerto Rico not too long ago and I was able to bring back with me hundreds of songs from there because of Shazam. Sometimes yes it can’t find the song but that’ll be because it’s a remix not out yet or a Mexican song. Which by the way I would appreciate it if you expanded your diversity of music in Spanish. I would recommend this app to all my friends but not my family since it’s for the most part for English music.
It's ok
by Jonnywanabe on 2018/04/17 05:38
It does work often enough for me to keep it on my phone, but I HATE that it automatically makes me "follow" an artist just because I Shazamed it. Not everyone is using the app is a tween with an insane need to post about every aspect of their life on multiple social media platforms. I don't want to follow anyone or get any news about any bands or performers. Let me decide that, don't do it for me. As far as I know, auto following is default and you can't turn it off. Would love to be wrong about that. I frequently miss songs because it takes the app so long to start up and it will often tag the wrong performer doing a song. Same song done by more than one person/band and it picks the wrong one.
