Bulls Eye Shazam
by Chasssie on 2021/04/26 17:12
I absolutely love Shazam. I’m not particular great at recognizing music by their titles so having Shazam to assist me in recognizing a song playing off a tv show or music awards helps me to categorize a list before I actually make a purchase. I absolutely love it. It rarely fails in Title/voice recognition.
Awesome. The best cool

They no longer want you to buy
by Jcw74 on 2021/04/05 14:31
I used to love this app bc I WANTED to buy (and support) the artists that I found on Shazam. Now they just want to direct you to Spotify or Apple Music. Disappointing.

Always There
by mike's words on 2021/03/08 01:30
Shazam is always there when I here a song that I have never heard and would like to buy. Without Shazam, I would miss out on a lot of music. When you need a lift when your day has not been so good, Shazam has given you that Song previously that always brings you back to your happy place.
Shazam is it!
by Mish2000 on 2021/03/04 19:45
I love Shazam more than most things in life. The technology blows my mind! If you haven’t tried it, what are you waiting for? It’s free!!!
I use it so much that u forget it exists
by DreadPirateRobert on 2021/03/03 11:53
In restaurants and stores, in the car, watching tv... whenever I hear a cool song my first thought is that I want to know who and what it is so that I can hear more. This is probably my most frequently used app.
Love
by DrLaurenC on 2021/02/26 06:09
Have always loved Shazam!! It changed my life when I was able to stop hunting for songs I immediately loved on the radio or in a movie. It was years ago but the moment I tried it I finally understood the real Genuis of having a smart phone. It was my aha moment. Thank you Shazam.
I’ve used this app for years!

Fair to Good application
by Me, myself, and I (1970) on 2020/11/18 16:24
Really the only worthwhile application for identifying music and/or songs from different sources. Now, that being said, there has been a deterioration in the accuracy and/or ability to even identify music and/or songs for about the past two to three years. I am not sure what it is, or if it’s platform specific, but has been increasingly more difficult to identify pieces of music/song with this app., say within the year or two. However, since it is the only viable app available for this purpose. I just really wish it was more reliable ☹️🙄.

Why’d you remove the map of top tens all over the world???
by SnoopyVela on 2020/11/01 21:13
Why why why did yo guys remove the map feature???? Now the top songs are broken down into USA and “the world”. The map feature allowed the user to press on any country and get their top ten, it was amazing. This new categorization is horrible and so limiting. If I want to see what the number one song is in Nigeria versus Argentina I can no longer do that, greatly limiting my exposure to music beyond my normal reach. Please bring this feature back!
Great

by alya___af on 2020/10/28 05:36
Idk, ever since Apple bought Shazam the app has gone to crap. Nothing syncs properly and the entire user experience and interface is so outdated. Not being able to zoom in on the world map anymore is suuuuch a loss. It really helped me explore music from around the world.
Love it, but, stop forcing Apple Music on me
by Lil'Bunny5 on 2020/10/27 03:25
I LOVE Shazam and how it helps me find the names of obscure songs. Call me old school but I still like making my own playlists. I like hearing what I want, in the order I want to hear it. It’s worth paying for the song and supporting the artist. However, it seems like there was some sort of partnership that occurred in the past year that makes it harder to navigate from there to iTunes to buy the song. You have to hit a few more buttons than before. It definitely seems like the app’s preference is for you to subscribe to Apple Music. Just a heads up.

Synchronization
by Nikita805 on 2020/09/07 22:02
Synchronization with Apple I music is a hit or miss. Very frustrating when you do what they say to synch and still not all the songs from Shazam are synchros to Apple I music!!! And the constant signing to my Apple account is frustrating if I close the app and reopen it or if I want Shazam to identify a song. With modern technology with face recognition & fingerprint I should be able to sign in that way and not typing it old school way all the time!!!!!
Best app ever!!!

I often try to use the app to identify the composer of a classical piece. The performer and movement number are no help. These are not “songs.”
It deleted my entire Apple Music Playlist
by timmy808 on 2020/07/19 17:37
I have been using the app for years. I have loved it until recently. I think a recent update did something to completely delete the Apple Music playlist that i had built with Shazam over the last few years. That is hundreds of songs over the course of years that are now completely deleted from my phone. It is a real shame because i really loved using this app.
Love it!

by jmasonc on 2020/06/22 06:12
music surrounds us and it deserves to be absorbed and identified. the only downside is potential addiction, which includes trying to tag songs while eating dinner or at a music festival and not be noticed as not already knowing a song 😉
Love when Shazam quickly recognizes songs I love!

Can’t do without
by amped2014 on 2020/06/05 21:03
“SHAZAM” is a verb in my house. I/ we use this app multiple times a week, if not almost every day. You can even Shazam a song from NPR or TV show, as long as it plays long enough you can capture it. I use it amongst friends and in the OR where I work, just or see who created what piece of music or settle a bet 😉. Shazam it y’all. It’s worth the little extra to keep unlimited Shazam’s songs. TRUST ME, you’ll LOVE IT.
So helpful and fun, too.
by justjill3 on 2020/06/04 12:59
Don’t have to be frustrated about not being able to identity a piece of music again.
I buy my songs
by Lender77 on 2020/06/02 18:43
Why do have the songs I want to purchase don’t have excess to buy them on your app? Apple Music is not worth the money. Stop limiting my options or I’m going to delete you!

It’s like an infant that never grows up
by Paul n Sidney on 2019/10/08 15:13
I would like to first say I love this app... Like everybody else I have been using this app for years. It’s simply amazing to be able to find what exactly is a piece of music is that you love so much but never knew either the name or who wrote and performed it. The reason and the only reason I put two stars is because my passion my only time to be able to do this is my hour, Hour and a half commute every morning and evening. I enjoy Shazaming the music that brings happiness peace harmony excitement passion call during my endless rides that we all must make turn earn a living but Listening to music, that gets me through the day... and I’m not big on social media but this is the one thing I enjoy to do is to share the music that brings peace to my soul. Having said that again you have to jump through so many hoops and hit so many buttons just to post a song on Facebook why can’t it remember each time what I want to do and not have to hit pick through the options every single time. Seriously, it’s retarded. Nowww!, just to clarify I’m not making fun of anybody who has learning disabilities, to anybody who is dyslexic or ADD like myself but really it’s just and expression so please forgive me if I insult anybody out there❤️
Aloha World
by KathiJo808 on 2017/10/06 04:32
This wonderful app, is a must have app! It allows me to find music globally! I use it to find out who the artist is, from the singers to the backup musicians in the group. On radio’s, television, to movie soundtracks in the theaters! From all generations! Don’t know what I’d do without it! Saves my sanity, now that they’ve closed almost every record store in Hawaii! The hours I use to spend in my youth. Reading and researching all kinds of music, looking for something new to share with my family and friends. Now I have it all at my fingertips in seconds! With the option to watch in on videos, or download to my phone. I can share it online on my Facebook page, with my friends and family in the mainland. Along with the great island music, we have here in Hawaii! I can’t live without it now! So addicted! Do yourself a favor and download “Shazam App” immediately! Luv & Aloha Kathi Jo
Shazam
by Mrs Sweet Toe on 2019/10/26 04:17
When I first got Shazam it was great! Then you did some upgrades and changes which were not so good; however several months later you did additional upgrades which again made the app great! However recently the app keeps blanking out on me will not retain my Shazam history and I am very frustrated by this as I am trying to retain my history in order to purchase music. I have at times Shazam music and found a new artist that I like and then purchased several songs by those artists later even introducing those artist to other people. The retained history is now too difficult to access! You need to repair the problems with Shazam or you will start losing customers me to start with! You are making too many efforts to try to get me to upgrade purchases to the product it is something that I, as well as many others, do not enjoy having foisted on us, so please stop keeping us from using our product simply in an effort to attempt to get us to purchase upgrades. Back in the day that was called a bait and switch and in most states is it legal! Make what we purchased user friendly and we will NOT be searching for other apps to ID and purchase new and old music!
It was perfect, until the updated started
by TiredOfBadApps on 2017/10/29 21:40
I've had this problem with just a few apps...that I didn't just delete, or with whos developers I am still fighting to have them stop billing me; you get the app (and in this case, pay $4.99), it works great, and you really enjoy using it, or in the case of a navigational app, you depend on it. Then, the update notices start. And it sounds all good to you, so update. Right now this app has been in some state of suspended, useless limbo. The message states that "even though you have paid for this app," it cannot be updated unless you connect to your computer, open iTunes or whatever, Blah, Blah, Blah. I am no where near my Mac. Is this developed for a Mac computer, or for an iPhone? I must have been mistaken, because I thought it was the latter. Screw your poorly designed improvements, and give me back the original app. Too many app developers are travelling this road. It's highley problematic. Only a cell phone company could screw up a Mac product, and really, Mac, get a tighter reign on this kind of thing. You don't look open and innovative, you look stupid and out of control.
Essential to my love for music
by “B” Porter on 2018/10/05 01:05
I have used Shazam for so many years.. I use it all the time because music is a passion for me... music is a part of me.. my friends used to tease me in a restaurant or store If background music was playing & I heard anything that I might be interested in, but didn’t know who was making that beautiful sound.. I always whip out my phone & hit Shazam, I’ve built many of playlist from shazamed music, many times of music I would’ve never heard of if not for my ...shazamed from my Shazam’s... I am a fan if not a Shazam addict I’m sure there are other similar apps but I guarantee from experience this one is tried and true dependable!!
I LOVE IT SO MUCH I UPGRADED!... then lost 2 years of musical search history :-/
by jobengals86 on 2019/06/17 15:06
Works fine. Everything has been linked with my Facebook since day 1. I used the free version for a long time, stored a bunch of history in there and then ... all i did was press the upgrade button because hey, screw commercials if you use an app this much, right? There's also ZERO distinction between the look of the app's digital cover of itself on your screen between the free and paid version - WHY? Neither the free or paid version are linked up with each other in any contiguous way; they’re just two duplicates of the same app, one with ads and one without. So after upgrading and linking all my musical accounts to everything ..... there’s no more history of any of my Shazams. Two stars because it works the exact same way as the free version. Don’t give them your money until they fix these issues; it’s MUCH more worth it to bear a few ads and commercials if it means having your Shazam history, at least in my opinion.
So glad this App is here
by I'd hit it J Roc on 2019/07/24 01:20
So glad that I bought this app. The free version was good ( I don’t even know if there is anymore? Was a while ago for me). I bought it because I just wanted a little more. To make sure I got the most out of it and it could save all my music finds. (Like I said it was a while ago and my memory is terrible)....... I gave it a 4 out 5 because sometimes the songs I tired to Shazam don’t get found. Maybe my location or cell service WiFi who knows. Or it could be it’s new or freestyle or something ? I have no idea.. Possibly be because they’re not “Shazamable”? Nun the leased I’m glad I have this app. I’ve Shazamed close to over 500 songs. Definitely worth. Get it!!!

by richardvjohnson on 2018/05/22 02:37
As a software engineer myself I can scarcely comprehend the ingenuity. First tried it in 2009 and acquired a lot of great music as a result. But for a few years I more or less recognized all the music I heard in public places so didn’t need it. But a few days ago I heard a song I really couldn’t do without so I downloaded the current app from the Apple app store. Learned the song was Showtime by DJ Slimm, downloaded the EP from Tidal and love it. I’m also a jazz and classical musician as well as a software engineer so I appreciate any musical knowledge I can acquire. I would describe Shazam as the musical equivalent of Wikipedia. Cheers Riccardo Johnson
Remembering songs with ease
by bloodbubble on 2019/12/12 20:07
For years whenever I hear a song I like, I’am unable to go out and get it because for the first twenty years of my life, it’s hard for me to walk into town and get the album the songs is contained because I lived on a dead end street off a road with no sidewalks so I ended up staying in my house for most of the time, and now with this app, I could track down the artists who sang the songs I enjoyed anytime I want and will always use it for the rest of my life.
Missing auto
by Ashvic920 on 2017/10/07 21:18
You guys got rid of the auto button. I NEEDED that to tag the songs I listened to while driving! Update: I figured out the new auto button like a minute after I wrote this review, so I'm changing it to 3 stars. I'm still having an issue with push notifications. That hasn't been working in over a year! I've seen multiple FAQs about that and they all say to change it in settings. However, whenever I try to find the toggle in settings (both in the app and on my phones settings) the option isn't there. I literally have nothing that can turn on and off the push notifications! You will get 5 stars when you give me that option back!
But you say … ?!
by PhelineCat on 2020/03/04 22:00
I'm trying to track down a system wide bug on my phone (sometimes an app crashing immediately is you) and I have updates in my queue for Shazam and Shazam Encore. There's a note near the most recent update, from 6 days ago (it's 3/4/20) that Shazam Encore's no longer supported. Odd. Maybe it's not hereafter. If so they chose poorly what name to keep. 10+ years ago Shazam- whatever one- left me hanging on a lot of my queries. I assume it's because I don't listen to any commercial or commercial adjacent music. I suppose it's better now but not as perfect as many reviewers say.
Love Shazam
by Megifog on 2017/10/31 01:23
I love Shazam and had it on my watch for months, suddenly one day it disappeared?? I went to the App Store and bought the Shazam Encore, even though I’d already paid for the upgraded version years ago. I've spent days trying to get the app to show up on my watch. I open it in the Watch app but it doesn’t show up within the watch. I’m definitely going to dispute the charge for this. I specifically bought it because it said Encore was compatible with the Apple Watch!
I love this app, but...
by Big Ron Ha Ha! on 2017/12/22 03:18
I have always enjoyed Shazam! I even love the the show. I do have one problem that I hope you can look into and maybe fix it in an update. I have resound hearing aids that stream through my iPhone. Unfortunately when I try to use Shazam while wearing them, Shazam doesn’t recognize anything playing. I suffer from degenerative hearing loss so I do need to wear them all day. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Merry Christmas and happy new year!
Fair to Good application
by Me, myself, and I (1970) on 2020/11/18 16:24
Really the only worthwhile application for identifying music and/or songs from different sources. Now, that being said, there has been a deterioration in the accuracy and/or ability to even identify music and/or songs for about the past two to three years. I am not sure what it is, or if it’s platform specific, but has been increasingly more difficult to identify pieces of music/song with this app., say within the year or two. However, since it is the only viable app available for this purpose. I just really wish it was more reliable ☹️🙄.
Fails every time if not major artist recording
by pld1762 on 2017/09/16 03:39
I like this app a lot. If I ask it to identify something from the radio or a bar's sound system, no problem. Karaoke or a not widely distributed cover version of a song? Can't identify it. Obviously it is focusing overwhelmingly on the specific singer. Identical instrumental track and a different singer? Fail. I'll keep this App but will look for a more versatile app which can help me with the 40% of songs this app cannot identify.
Latest Shazam update is horrible (v11.9.1)
by iomracer on 2018/05/08 02:18
With the latest update of Shazam you cannot remove Shazam’ed songs. Your list sync’s with their servers and retains everything you Shazam’d, even if you used the ‘remove from my Shazam’ function, the songs come back. Also, when looking up artists it no long tells you how many people have Shazam’d that artist. But worse, you cannot just click ‘follow’ (or ‘unfollow’) an artist from that tab - you have to go to My Shazams and unfollow one at a time. At least the song recognition feature remains intact. I Shazam many less popular songs (e.g. those broadcast by KCRW) and it gets 99% of them.
SHAZAM ENCORE
by Ride Mustang Ride on 2019/03/01 13:20
THE BEST SHAZAM SO FAR! Now.., I’ve looked and thought it over.?.?.? And yet I couldn’t find or think of anything wrong, or something I didn’t like. For me back just over a decade ago in September 2008, my first smartphone the iPhone 3G, and SHAZAM, one of my first APP’s. They both have come a long way. And over the past decade I’ve had a handful of iPhones and three iPads, as well as my very first MacBook Air this past Fall. NO MORE P.C. HEADACHES FOR ME ANYMORE. SHAZAM ENCORE is always one of the first APP’s I download.
Can’t do without
by amped2014 on 2020/06/05 21:03
“SHAZAM” is a verb in my house. I/ we use this app multiple times a week, if not almost every day. You can even Shazam a song from NPR or TV show, as long as it plays long enough you can capture it. I use it amongst friends and in the OR where I work, just or see who created what piece of music or settle a bet 😉. Shazam it y’all. It’s worth the little extra to keep unlimited Shazam’s songs. TRUST ME, you’ll LOVE IT.
Interrupt music when tagging the song
by Lemont_hill on 2018/06/19 14:05
Can y’all please fix the glitch or bug that cause the app to Interrupt the music when tagging the song so it doesn’t do that at all when listening on your phone or Bluetooth speaker and you tag that song it interrupts the song try it on your phone or Bluetooth speaker you will know what I’m talking about Shazam thanks other that good app and I love using it
All time most favorite app on iPhone
by Loose Dog on 2020/02/08 04:50
Been using Shazam since it was released but never got around to rating the app and have never written a review for any app before. Makes discovering new music a breeze. Shazam is the 5th most used app on my iPhone behind the Phone, Safari, email and iCal apps. Apple Music prob ranks after Shazam because Shazam is key to building up your Apple Music library.
Switched back to Shazam after using SoundHound for years
by Tawcpruitt on 2017/10/09 15:32
I’ve decided me to give Shazam a test again after using SoundHound for years. SoundHound was better at the time he’ll because you could sing into it or hummus song and it would find the tune. Now, Shazam does all of that and does it better. I’m at Shazam use her again and now I think I’ll be a Shazam user for life.
The good old days
by cokewisdom on 2018/08/18 03:31
Well Shazam is okay. But I miss the days when my mom and Me. Oh wait sorry. My mom and I (felt the sharp sting of my mothers wedding ring across my face when I just made the “me”mistake.)I miss the days when we’d go to tower records and my mother would sing to the man behind the counter a song we had just heard on the radio. Then from her off key rendition of boys to men would he guess what song it was.
Epic fail
by YavorAtanasov on 2018/08/18 22:14
Yesterday update basically make this app unusable. Can’t even start - immediate crash after splash screen. Reinstall or reboot doesn’t help at all. iPhone version works just fine though, but in iPad like I said crashes on start. You guys suppose to update app not crash it... Update: The developers fix the issue on the next day. Everything is alright now
HFGarcia24
by HFGarcia24 on 2019/01/18 13:13
I don’t purchase many apps. But I purchased this app years back, and it’s one of the best things I’ve done. I’m always hearing music in shopping malls, on the radio, festivals, dj booths, house parties, and its always gotten the song for me. There’s only a handful of times it didn’t recognize the song, in the last 5 or years. I’m always adding music to my library.
Why’d you remove the map of top tens all over the world???
by SnoopyVela on 2020/11/01 21:13
Why why why did yo guys remove the map feature???? Now the top songs are broken down into USA and “the world”. The map feature allowed the user to press on any country and get their top ten, it was amazing. This new categorization is horrible and so limiting. If I want to see what the number one song is in Nigeria versus Argentina I can no longer do that, greatly limiting my exposure to music beyond my normal reach. Please bring this feature back!
Soundhound is so much better
by pookerella on 2018/03/12 20:33
I do not understand why they wanted to destroy this app. It’s slow, it’s database blows and 60% of the time it doesn’t find what you’re looking for. Music isn’t only about what’s going on today, people. And even then, it doesn’t have the newest releases unless it’s major releases! All the alt and obscure stuff isn’t there, even in today’s music. And then Soundhound will find it. Maybe if Shazam didn’t spend all those years on TELEVISION NONSENSE, they would have a better app. But they did. And it’s not great. Used to be great. Not any more. #sad
Loved for years
by Lab Nerd on 2020/02/16 22:40
However I recently realized there is no way to report inaccuracies, at least not from within the app. There aren’t many, of course, but when it comes to instrumentals, some of the newer stuff can be tough. So there should definitely should be a way to (at the very least) submit possible inaccuracies for review. Otherwise, perfection, and always an automatic go-to app/service!
Perfect way to identify and buy my music on the fly
by Having a blast on 2018/01/05 05:46
It is the easiest app I have found to identify and download any song. I have used it to purchase hundreds of songs over the last few years. I even use it to identify songs on tv shows and movies, even a commercial a couple of times. It is a vital music resource as far as I am concerned.
Magical
by weekendHacker on 2019/10/19 18:24
While I don’t recall exactly where I was when I first used Shazam, I distinctly recall how amazing it was to see it identify a song. If you’re old enough to remember not having Shazam, you’ll recall how difficult it was! I remember writing down lyrics and going to a music store to try and find the right song. Now that’s just a Shazam away. Thank you Shazam!
What did we do before Shazam?
by Haikujo1 on 2017/10/25 22:40
...Fight about whether Tin Man was a Neil Young song or the group America ...or whether the title of the song was OZ. It is my go to debate dissolving, "what album should I listen to all the way through?", "what do I need to download?" app. I barely know what we did before. Oh, I know! Badger the guys at the record store with off key renditions of half sung song hooks...Record stores--ah, nostalgia!
Always There
by mike's words on 2021/03/08 01:30
Shazam is always there when I here a song that I have never heard and would like to buy. Without Shazam, I would miss out on a lot of music. When you need a lift when your day has not been so good, Shazam has given you that Song previously that always brings you back to your happy place.
Great product, but...
by jimd2 on 2019/05/25 19:49
I have used this app for a long time and it usually works fast and very well. The only other option that I would like to see is for it to also use your library. Since Apple bought this and it works with Apple Music, it seems like it would be doable to sync up the library dB files.
Hell of a Shazam
by cannedarts on 2019/10/27 19:01
About as good as it gets for instant song identification and also will instantly add to your playlist. Keeps track of all your Shazammed songs, as well, and can play them without having to download. If there’s a better system out there, I’d like to know. Would’ve given 4 Stars, but think there’s always room for improvement. Too much to keep at this review.
Opening to Apple Music.
by Dipsett189 on 2019/02/25 06:15
The biggest issue is that you offer opening to Apple Music, but once u select the option to open to Apple music it tells you “you already have a subscription to Apple Music”. Why is it that when u selected that option that it doesn’t take u to that song you selected?

Used to be good
by Likesrocks on 2018/12/31 16:14
Used to love Shazam. ID a tune buy it and it’d go into my iTunes. Now would go to Apple Music which I refuse to pay for. So now I have to ID the tune, go to iTunes look it up and buy there. So basically you’ve lost whatever you would have made from the sale. Your app is useless save for identifying the song. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!
Humming and concerts are it's weakness
by ORHobbes on 2018/01/23 18:23
This is obviously a great doing detection service. There are just two shortcomings... 1) It cannot detect songs by humming the way that SoundHound can. That's a huge problem when you have a song in your head but don't know many of the words. If SoundHound can identify the song from just humming it, then why can't Shazam? 2) It struggles identifying songs when you are at a live concert, whereas SoundHound seems to always figure the song out. Again, a huge weakness compared to their competitor. Shazam has other advantages such as camera scanning, but the humming and concert features would be far more useful. Hopefully now that Apple owns Shazam, they have the resources available to fix these two shortcomings in doing detection.
A must have app!
by ogdenjaydub on 2017/12/19 05:33
I could not live without this app on my phone. Plus the fact that it syncs with my Apple Music, well that's just the Icing on the cake. I have yet not been able to find the song I was searching for. Even random, obscure songs I have been able to find with this app. Great work Shazam!! Thanks!
Buy this app
by Tailsticks on 2017/12/17 12:51
I have used this app all over the world and collected songs from my travels. Allowing me to better remember each place. Thank you to the developers of this app. If you are a prospective buyer. Just go ahead and get it. Support them by buying the upgrade. It’s really awesome to be someplace and capture the moments in songs.
Oh My Goodness!
by Bardin7802 on 2018/10/16 21:19
Shazam was my first app purchase many years ago. I really like The ease of use and dependability of knowing it is right every time. Shazam introduces me to music I’m unfamiliar with in a movie or television show and this helps Shazam keeps me “in the know” on trends in music that’s new to me and helps to grow my eclectic library!
LOVE THIS APP...now I’m not so sure
by Darkkeep on 2017/10/19 05:58
I've been using Shazam since it was first released and it is STILL my go to app for any smart phone device. This app WAS my go to and I supported several artists by being able to find them and purchase their music. Now Shazam has started “The Hit List” which blocks you from discovering certain artists. All I’ll say is...shame on you. If this is going to be the new common occurrence...I’ll be removing the app.
Good when it works
by DJ Synthetic on 2020/04/01 06:08
Sometimes this app identifies song info correctly... other times, I will attempt to identify the same song 5 times with it giving me a different match every time. At the moment I’m having an issue with when the Shazam app opens, it will immediately freeze the music playing from my other app (SoundCloud), which happens to be the track I’m trying to identify.
“What’s that song?” No More!
by Pro Actor Man on 2017/10/09 20:41
This is the perfect app for people like me who hear a song but can’t quite place the artist and have no blessed clue the title. You open the app, you push the button, the app takes about 10 seconds to listen to the song, and then the app coughs up the answer. It’s BRILLIANT!
App problem
by Jimbo32984 on 2018/01/28 13:27
This was a great app. As of recently when I hit play all to play songs that I’ve shazamed once my phone locks or I exit the app to do something else the app freezes and the music stops. Hoping they can fix this issue. Idk if anyone else has the same problem. Has been happening. For a few weeks now.
Love
by DrLaurenC on 2021/02/26 06:09
Have always loved Shazam!! It changed my life when I was able to stop hunting for songs I immediately loved on the radio or in a movie. It was years ago but the moment I tried it I finally understood the real Genuis of having a smart phone. It was my aha moment. Thank you Shazam.
KISS Method approved
by Equinox30 on 2020/03/21 18:29
Keep It Simple Stupid, I like that if I hear a song on any platform and can add it to my personal libraries across multiple music platforms. I like to camp and WiFi is not always an option and taking my music with me is key. Thanks Shazam for helping me keep track of the soundtrack to my life.
Reason ?
by emreadeks on 2018/05/26 06:59
Why did you remove background playing?? I only listen here. I really like to use this app because of background playing. That’s why i was using previous versions and I paid $0.99 but that’s almost same with regular version.
My favorite app of all time!
by Amogedon7 on 2018/10/27 13:38
I still listen to the traditional radio and love the ability to see the title and artists I can’t remember. I also really like the ability to see the lyrics that you can’t quite understand. (Especially in some of the old rock and roll tunes)

I absolutely love Shazam. I’m not particular great at recognizing music by their titles so having Shazam to assist me in recognizing a song playing off a tv show or music awards helps me to categorize a list before I actually make a purchase. I absolutely love it. It rarely fails in Title/voice recognition.

All songs used to feature lyrics so we could sing along. That ability has now been subjected to greed.
My favorites I can recapture the music I love or find new music to love.

Really the only worthwhile application for identifying music and/or songs from different sources. Now, that being said, there has been a deterioration in the accuracy and/or ability to even identify music and/or songs for about the past two to three years. I am not sure what it is, or if it’s platform specific, but has been increasingly more difficult to identify pieces of music/song with this app., say within the year or two. However, since it is the only viable app available for this purpose. I just really wish it was more reliable ☹️🙄.

Why’d you remove the map of top tens all over the world???
by SnoopyVela on 2020/11/01 21:13
Why why why did yo guys remove the map feature???? Now the top songs are broken down into USA and “the world”. The map feature allowed the user to press on any country and get their top ten, it was amazing. This new categorization is horrible and so limiting. If I want to see what the number one song is in Nigeria versus Argentina I can no longer do that, greatly limiting my exposure to music beyond my normal reach. Please bring this feature back!
Great

by alya___af on 2020/10/28 05:36
Idk, ever since Apple bought Shazam the app has gone to crap. Nothing syncs properly and the entire user experience and interface is so outdated. Not being able to zoom in on the world map anymore is suuuuch a loss. It really helped me explore music from around the world.
Love it, but, stop forcing Apple Music on me
by Lil'Bunny5 on 2020/10/27 03:25
I LOVE Shazam and how it helps me find the names of obscure songs. Call me old school but I still like making my own playlists. I like hearing what I want, in the order I want to hear it. It’s worth paying for the song and supporting the artist. However, it seems like there was some sort of partnership that occurred in the past year that makes it harder to navigate from there to iTunes to buy the song. You have to hit a few more buttons than before. It definitely seems like the app’s preference is for you to subscribe to Apple Music. Just a heads up.

Synchronization
by Nikita805 on 2020/09/07 22:02
Synchronization with Apple I music is a hit or miss. Very frustrating when you do what they say to synch and still not all the songs from Shazam are synchros to Apple I music!!! And the constant signing to my Apple account is frustrating if I close the app and reopen it or if I want Shazam to identify a song. With modern technology with face recognition & fingerprint I should be able to sign in that way and not typing it old school way all the time!!!!!
Best app ever!!!

I often try to use the app to identify the composer of a classical piece. The performer and movement number are no help. These are not “songs.”
It deleted my entire Apple Music Playlist
by timmy808 on 2020/07/19 17:37
I have been using the app for years. I have loved it until recently. I think a recent update did something to completely delete the Apple Music playlist that i had built with Shazam over the last few years. That is hundreds of songs over the course of years that are now completely deleted from my phone. It is a real shame because i really loved using this app.
Love it!

by jmasonc on 2020/06/22 06:12
music surrounds us and it deserves to be absorbed and identified. the only downside is potential addiction, which includes trying to tag songs while eating dinner or at a music festival and not be noticed as not already knowing a song 😉
Love when Shazam quickly recognizes songs I love!

Can’t do without
by amped2014 on 2020/06/05 21:03
“SHAZAM” is a verb in my house. I/ we use this app multiple times a week, if not almost every day. You can even Shazam a song from NPR or TV show, as long as it plays long enough you can capture it. I use it amongst friends and in the OR where I work, just or see who created what piece of music or settle a bet 😉. Shazam it y’all. It’s worth the little extra to keep unlimited Shazam’s songs. TRUST ME, you’ll LOVE IT.
So helpful and fun, too.
by justjill3 on 2020/06/04 12:59
Don’t have to be frustrated about not being able to identity a piece of music again.
I buy my songs
by Lender77 on 2020/06/02 18:43
Why do have the songs I want to purchase don’t have excess to buy them on your app? Apple Music is not worth the money. Stop limiting my options or I’m going to delete you!

It’s like an infant that never grows up
by Paul n Sidney on 2019/10/08 15:13
I would like to first say I love this app... Like everybody else I have been using this app for years. It’s simply amazing to be able to find what exactly is a piece of music is that you love so much but never knew either the name or who wrote and performed it. The reason and the only reason I put two stars is because my passion my only time to be able to do this is my hour, Hour and a half commute every morning and evening. I enjoy Shazaming the music that brings happiness peace harmony excitement passion call during my endless rides that we all must make turn earn a living but Listening to music, that gets me through the day... and I’m not big on social media but this is the one thing I enjoy to do is to share the music that brings peace to my soul. Having said that again you have to jump through so many hoops and hit so many buttons just to post a song on Facebook why can’t it remember each time what I want to do and not have to hit pick through the options every single time. Seriously, it’s retarded. Nowww!, just to clarify I’m not making fun of anybody who has learning disabilities, to anybody who is dyslexic or ADD like myself but really it’s just and expression so please forgive me if I insult anybody out there❤️
Aloha World
by KathiJo808 on 2017/10/06 04:32
This wonderful app, is a must have app! It allows me to find music globally! I use it to find out who the artist is, from the singers to the backup musicians in the group. On radio’s, television, to movie soundtracks in the theaters! From all generations! Don’t know what I’d do without it! Saves my sanity, now that they’ve closed almost every record store in Hawaii! The hours I use to spend in my youth. Reading and researching all kinds of music, looking for something new to share with my family and friends. Now I have it all at my fingertips in seconds! With the option to watch in on videos, or download to my phone. I can share it online on my Facebook page, with my friends and family in the mainland. Along with the great island music, we have here in Hawaii! I can’t live without it now! So addicted! Do yourself a favor and download “Shazam App” immediately! Luv & Aloha Kathi Jo
Shazam
by Mrs Sweet Toe on 2019/10/26 04:17
When I first got Shazam it was great! Then you did some upgrades and changes which were not so good; however several months later you did additional upgrades which again made the app great! However recently the app keeps blanking out on me will not retain my Shazam history and I am very frustrated by this as I am trying to retain my history in order to purchase music. I have at times Shazam music and found a new artist that I like and then purchased several songs by those artists later even introducing those artist to other people. The retained history is now too difficult to access! You need to repair the problems with Shazam or you will start losing customers me to start with! You are making too many efforts to try to get me to upgrade purchases to the product it is something that I, as well as many others, do not enjoy having foisted on us, so please stop keeping us from using our product simply in an effort to attempt to get us to purchase upgrades. Back in the day that was called a bait and switch and in most states is it legal! Make what we purchased user friendly and we will NOT be searching for other apps to ID and purchase new and old music!
It was perfect, until the updated started
by TiredOfBadApps on 2017/10/29 21:40
I've had this problem with just a few apps...that I didn't just delete, or with whos developers I am still fighting to have them stop billing me; you get the app (and in this case, pay $4.99), it works great, and you really enjoy using it, or in the case of a navigational app, you depend on it. Then, the update notices start. And it sounds all good to you, so update. Right now this app has been in some state of suspended, useless limbo. The message states that "even though you have paid for this app," it cannot be updated unless you connect to your computer, open iTunes or whatever, Blah, Blah, Blah. I am no where near my Mac. Is this developed for a Mac computer, or for an iPhone? I must have been mistaken, because I thought it was the latter. Screw your poorly designed improvements, and give me back the original app. Too many app developers are travelling this road. It's highley problematic. Only a cell phone company could screw up a Mac product, and really, Mac, get a tighter reign on this kind of thing. You don't look open and innovative, you look stupid and out of control.
Essential to my love for music
by “B” Porter on 2018/10/05 01:05
I have used Shazam for so many years.. I use it all the time because music is a passion for me... music is a part of me.. my friends used to tease me in a restaurant or store If background music was playing & I heard anything that I might be interested in, but didn’t know who was making that beautiful sound.. I always whip out my phone & hit Shazam, I’ve built many of playlist from shazamed music, many times of music I would’ve never heard of if not for my ...shazamed from my Shazam’s... I am a fan if not a Shazam addict I’m sure there are other similar apps but I guarantee from experience this one is tried and true dependable!!
I LOVE IT SO MUCH I UPGRADED!... then lost 2 years of musical search history :-/
by jobengals86 on 2019/06/17 15:06
Works fine. Everything has been linked with my Facebook since day 1. I used the free version for a long time, stored a bunch of history in there and then ... all i did was press the upgrade button because hey, screw commercials if you use an app this much, right? There's also ZERO distinction between the look of the app's digital cover of itself on your screen between the free and paid version - WHY? Neither the free or paid version are linked up with each other in any contiguous way; they’re just two duplicates of the same app, one with ads and one without. So after upgrading and linking all my musical accounts to everything ..... there’s no more history of any of my Shazams. Two stars because it works the exact same way as the free version. Don’t give them your money until they fix these issues; it’s MUCH more worth it to bear a few ads and commercials if it means having your Shazam history, at least in my opinion.
So glad this App is here
by I'd hit it J Roc on 2019/07/24 01:20
So glad that I bought this app. The free version was good ( I don’t even know if there is anymore? Was a while ago for me). I bought it because I just wanted a little more. To make sure I got the most out of it and it could save all my music finds. (Like I said it was a while ago and my memory is terrible)....... I gave it a 4 out 5 because sometimes the songs I tired to Shazam don’t get found. Maybe my location or cell service WiFi who knows. Or it could be it’s new or freestyle or something ? I have no idea.. Possibly be because they’re not “Shazamable”? Nun the leased I’m glad I have this app. I’ve Shazamed close to over 500 songs. Definitely worth. Get it!!!

Great software
by richardvjohnson on 2018/05/22 02:37
As a software engineer myself I can scarcely comprehend the ingenuity. First tried it in 2009 and acquired a lot of great music as a result. But for a few years I more or less recognized all the music I heard in public places so didn’t need it. But a few days ago I heard a song I really couldn’t do without so I downloaded the current app from the Apple app store. Learned the song was Showtime by DJ Slimm, downloaded the EP from Tidal and love it. I’m also a jazz and classical musician as well as a software engineer so I appreciate any musical knowledge I can acquire. I would describe Shazam as the musical equivalent of Wikipedia. Cheers Riccardo Johnson
Remembering songs with ease
by bloodbubble on 2019/12/12 20:07
For years whenever I hear a song I like, I’am unable to go out and get it because for the first twenty years of my life, it’s hard for me to walk into town and get the album the songs is contained because I lived on a dead end street off a road with no sidewalks so I ended up staying in my house for most of the time, and now with this app, I could track down the artists who sang the songs I enjoyed anytime I want and will always use it for the rest of my life.
Missing auto
by Ashvic920 on 2017/10/07 21:18
You guys got rid of the auto button. I NEEDED that to tag the songs I listened to while driving! Update: I figured out the new auto button like a minute after I wrote this review, so I'm changing it to 3 stars. I'm still having an issue with push notifications. That hasn't been working in over a year! I've seen multiple FAQs about that and they all say to change it in settings. However, whenever I try to find the toggle in settings (both in the app and on my phones settings) the option isn't there. I literally have nothing that can turn on and off the push notifications! You will get 5 stars when you give me that option back!
But you say … ?!
by PhelineCat on 2020/03/04 22:00
I'm trying to track down a system wide bug on my phone (sometimes an app crashing immediately is you) and I have updates in my queue for Shazam and Shazam Encore. There's a note near the most recent update, from 6 days ago (it's 3/4/20) that Shazam Encore's no longer supported. Odd. Maybe it's not hereafter. If so they chose poorly what name to keep. 10+ years ago Shazam- whatever one- left me hanging on a lot of my queries. I assume it's because I don't listen to any commercial or commercial adjacent music. I suppose it's better now but not as perfect as many reviewers say.
Love Shazam
by Megifog on 2017/10/31 01:23
I love Shazam and had it on my watch for months, suddenly one day it disappeared?? I went to the App Store and bought the Shazam Encore, even though I’d already paid for the upgraded version years ago. I've spent days trying to get the app to show up on my watch. I open it in the Watch app but it doesn’t show up within the watch. I’m definitely going to dispute the charge for this. I specifically bought it because it said Encore was compatible with the Apple Watch!
I love this app, but...
by Big Ron Ha Ha! on 2017/12/22 03:18
I have always enjoyed Shazam! I even love the the show. I do have one problem that I hope you can look into and maybe fix it in an update. I have resound hearing aids that stream through my iPhone. Unfortunately when I try to use Shazam while wearing them, Shazam doesn’t recognize anything playing. I suffer from degenerative hearing loss so I do need to wear them all day. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Merry Christmas and happy new year!

Fails every time if not major artist recording
by pld1762 on 2017/09/16 03:39
I like this app a lot. If I ask it to identify something from the radio or a bar's sound system, no problem. Karaoke or a not widely distributed cover version of a song? Can't identify it. Obviously it is focusing overwhelmingly on the specific singer. Identical instrumental track and a different singer? Fail. I'll keep this App but will look for a more versatile app which can help me with the 40% of songs this app cannot identify.
Latest Shazam update is horrible (v11.9.1)
by iomracer on 2018/05/08 02:18
With the latest update of Shazam you cannot remove Shazam’ed songs. Your list sync’s with their servers and retains everything you Shazam’d, even if you used the ‘remove from my Shazam’ function, the songs come back. Also, when looking up artists it no long tells you how many people have Shazam’d that artist. But worse, you cannot just click ‘follow’ (or ‘unfollow’) an artist from that tab - you have to go to My Shazams and unfollow one at a time. At least the song recognition feature remains intact. I Shazam many less popular songs (e.g. those broadcast by KCRW) and it gets 99% of them.
SHAZAM ENCORE
by Ride Mustang Ride on 2019/03/01 13:20
THE BEST SHAZAM SO FAR! Now.., I’ve looked and thought it over.?.?.? And yet I couldn’t find or think of anything wrong, or something I didn’t like. For me back just over a decade ago in September 2008, my first smartphone the iPhone 3G, and SHAZAM, one of my first APP’s. They both have come a long way. And over the past decade I’ve had a handful of iPhones and three iPads, as well as my very first MacBook Air this past Fall. NO MORE P.C. HEADACHES FOR ME ANYMORE. SHAZAM ENCORE is always one of the first APP’s I download.

Interrupt music when tagging the song
by Lemont_hill on 2018/06/19 14:05
Can y’all please fix the glitch or bug that cause the app to Interrupt the music when tagging the song so it doesn’t do that at all when listening on your phone or Bluetooth speaker and you tag that song it interrupts the song try it on your phone or Bluetooth speaker you will know what I’m talking about Shazam thanks other that good app and I love using it
All time most favorite app on iPhone
by Loose Dog on 2020/02/08 04:50
Been using Shazam since it was released but never got around to rating the app and have never written a review for any app before. Makes discovering new music a breeze. Shazam is the 5th most used app on my iPhone behind the Phone, Safari, email and iCal apps. Apple Music prob ranks after Shazam because Shazam is key to building up your Apple Music library.
Switched back to Shazam after using SoundHound for years

I’ve decided me to give Shazam a test again after using SoundHound for years. SoundHound was better at the time he’ll because you could sing into it or hummus song and it would find the tune. Now, Shazam does all of that and does it better. I’m at Shazam use her again and now I think I’ll be a Shazam user for life.
The good old days
by cokewisdom on 2018/08/18 03:31
Well Shazam is okay. But I miss the days when my mom and Me. Oh wait sorry. My mom and I (felt the sharp sting of my mothers wedding ring across my face when I just made the “me”mistake.)I miss the days when we’d go to tower records and my mother would sing to the man behind the counter a song we had just heard on the radio. Then from her off key rendition of boys to men would he guess what song it was.
Epic fail
by YavorAtanasov on 2018/08/18 22:14
Yesterday update basically make this app unusable. Can’t even start - immediate crash after splash screen. Reinstall or reboot doesn’t help at all. iPhone version works just fine though, but in iPad like I said crashes on start. You guys suppose to update app not crash it... Update: The developers fix the issue on the next day. Everything is alright now

I don’t purchase many apps. But I purchased this app years back, and it’s one of the best things I’ve done. I’m always hearing music in shopping malls, on the radio, festivals, dj booths, house parties, and its always gotten the song for me. There’s only a handful of times it didn’t recognize the song, in the last 5 or years. I’m always adding music to my library.
Why’d you remove the map of top tens all over the world???
by SnoopyVela on 2020/11/01 21:13
Why why why did yo guys remove the map feature???? Now the top songs are broken down into USA and “the world”. The map feature allowed the user to press on any country and get their top ten, it was amazing. This new categorization is horrible and so limiting. If I want to see what the number one song is in Nigeria versus Argentina I can no longer do that, greatly limiting my exposure to music beyond my normal reach. Please bring this feature back!
Soundhound is so much better
by pookerella on 2018/03/12 20:33
I do not understand why they wanted to destroy this app. It’s slow, it’s database blows and 60% of the time it doesn’t find what you’re looking for. Music isn’t only about what’s going on today, people. And even then, it doesn’t have the newest releases unless it’s major releases! All the alt and obscure stuff isn’t there, even in today’s music. And then Soundhound will find it. Maybe if Shazam didn’t spend all those years on TELEVISION NONSENSE, they would have a better app. But they did. And it’s not great. Used to be great. Not any more. #sad
Loved for years

However I recently realized there is no way to report inaccuracies, at least not from within the app. There aren’t many, of course, but when it comes to instrumentals, some of the newer stuff can be tough. So there should definitely should be a way to (at the very least) submit possible inaccuracies for review. Otherwise, perfection, and always an automatic go-to app/service!
Perfect way to identify and buy my music on the fly
by Having a blast on 2018/01/05 05:46
It is the easiest app I have found to identify and download any song. I have used it to purchase hundreds of songs over the last few years. I even use it to identify songs on tv shows and movies, even a commercial a couple of times. It is a vital music resource as far as I am concerned.
Magical
by weekendHacker on 2019/10/19 18:24
While I don’t recall exactly where I was when I first used Shazam, I distinctly recall how amazing it was to see it identify a song. If you’re old enough to remember not having Shazam, you’ll recall how difficult it was! I remember writing down lyrics and going to a music store to try and find the right song. Now that’s just a Shazam away. Thank you Shazam!
What did we do before Shazam?
by Haikujo1 on 2017/10/25 22:40
...Fight about whether Tin Man was a Neil Young song or the group America ...or whether the title of the song was OZ. It is my go to debate dissolving, "what album should I listen to all the way through?", "what do I need to download?" app. I barely know what we did before. Oh, I know! Badger the guys at the record store with off key renditions of half sung song hooks...Record stores--ah, nostalgia!
Always There
by mike's words on 2021/03/08 01:30
Shazam is always there when I here a song that I have never heard and would like to buy. Without Shazam, I would miss out on a lot of music. When you need a lift when your day has not been so good, Shazam has given you that Song previously that always brings you back to your happy place.
Great product, but...
by jimd2 on 2019/05/25 19:49
I have used this app for a long time and it usually works fast and very well. The only other option that I would like to see is for it to also use your library. Since Apple bought this and it works with Apple Music, it seems like it would be doable to sync up the library dB files.
Hell of a Shazam
by cannedarts on 2019/10/27 19:01
About as good as it gets for instant song identification and also will instantly add to your playlist. Keeps track of all your Shazammed songs, as well, and can play them without having to download. If there’s a better system out there, I’d like to know. Would’ve given 4 Stars, but think there’s always room for improvement. Too much to keep at this review.
Opening to Apple Music.
by Dipsett189 on 2019/02/25 06:15
The biggest issue is that you offer opening to Apple Music, but once u select the option to open to Apple music it tells you “you already have a subscription to Apple Music”. Why is it that when u selected that option that it doesn’t take u to that song you selected?

Used to be good
by Likesrocks on 2018/12/31 16:14
Used to love Shazam. ID a tune buy it and it’d go into my iTunes. Now would go to Apple Music which I refuse to pay for. So now I have to ID the tune, go to iTunes look it up and buy there. So basically you’ve lost whatever you would have made from the sale. Your app is useless save for identifying the song. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!
Humming and concerts are it's weakness
by ORHobbes on 2018/01/23 18:23
This is obviously a great doing detection service. There are just two shortcomings... 1) It cannot detect songs by humming the way that SoundHound can. That's a huge problem when you have a song in your head but don't know many of the words. If SoundHound can identify the song from just humming it, then why can't Shazam? 2) It struggles identifying songs when you are at a live concert, whereas SoundHound seems to always figure the song out. Again, a huge weakness compared to their competitor. Shazam has other advantages such as camera scanning, but the humming and concert features would be far more useful. Hopefully now that Apple owns Shazam, they have the resources available to fix these two shortcomings in doing detection.
A must have app!
by ogdenjaydub on 2017/12/19 05:33
I could not live without this app on my phone. Plus the fact that it syncs with my Apple Music, well that's just the Icing on the cake. I have yet not been able to find the song I was searching for. Even random, obscure songs I have been able to find with this app. Great work Shazam!! Thanks!
Buy this app
by Tailsticks on 2017/12/17 12:51
I have used this app all over the world and collected songs from my travels. Allowing me to better remember each place. Thank you to the developers of this app. If you are a prospective buyer. Just go ahead and get it. Support them by buying the upgrade. It’s really awesome to be someplace and capture the moments in songs.
Oh My Goodness!
by Bardin7802 on 2018/10/16 21:19
Shazam was my first app purchase many years ago. I really like The ease of use and dependability of knowing it is right every time. Shazam introduces me to music I’m unfamiliar with in a movie or television show and this helps Shazam keeps me “in the know” on trends in music that’s new to me and helps to grow my eclectic library!
LOVE THIS APP...now I’m not so sure
by Darkkeep on 2017/10/19 05:58
I've been using Shazam since it was first released and it is STILL my go to app for any smart phone device. This app WAS my go to and I supported several artists by being able to find them and purchase their music. Now Shazam has started “The Hit List” which blocks you from discovering certain artists. All I’ll say is...shame on you. If this is going to be the new common occurrence...I’ll be removing the app.
Good when it works
by DJ Synthetic on 2020/04/01 06:08
Sometimes this app identifies song info correctly... other times, I will attempt to identify the same song 5 times with it giving me a different match every time. At the moment I’m having an issue with when the Shazam app opens, it will immediately freeze the music playing from my other app (SoundCloud), which happens to be the track I’m trying to identify.
“What’s that song?” No More!
by Pro Actor Man on 2017/10/09 20:41
This is the perfect app for people like me who hear a song but can’t quite place the artist and have no blessed clue the title. You open the app, you push the button, the app takes about 10 seconds to listen to the song, and then the app coughs up the answer. It’s BRILLIANT!
App problem
by Jimbo32984 on 2018/01/28 13:27
This was a great app. As of recently when I hit play all to play songs that I’ve shazamed once my phone locks or I exit the app to do something else the app freezes and the music stops. Hoping they can fix this issue. Idk if anyone else has the same problem. Has been happening. For a few weeks now.
Love
by DrLaurenC on 2021/02/26 06:09
Have always loved Shazam!! It changed my life when I was able to stop hunting for songs I immediately loved on the radio or in a movie. It was years ago but the moment I tried it I finally understood the real Genuis of having a smart phone. It was my aha moment. Thank you Shazam.
KISS Method approved
by Equinox30 on 2020/03/21 18:29
Keep It Simple Stupid, I like that if I hear a song on any platform and can add it to my personal libraries across multiple music platforms. I like to camp and WiFi is not always an option and taking my music with me is key. Thanks Shazam for helping me keep track of the soundtrack to my life.
Reason ?
by emreadeks on 2018/05/26 06:59
Why did you remove background playing?? I only listen here. I really like to use this app because of background playing. That’s why i was using previous versions and I paid $0.99 but that’s almost same with regular version.
My favorite app of all time!
by Amogedon7 on 2018/10/27 13:38
I still listen to the traditional radio and love the ability to see the title and artists I can’t remember. I also really like the ability to see the lyrics that you can’t quite understand. (Especially in some of the old rock and roll tunes)
