Shazam: Music Discovery Positive Reviews

Only one problemCan you guys add the ability for dark mode on iOS 12 I have an iPod touch and I want to Shazam songs it’s an older iPod touch from 2015 so it’s about seven years old now in about 2022 its 6 years old right now and I want to be able to Shazam songs and when I do I can have the little Sam list on the bottom that you can scroll up and look at to be in dark mode I’m sure it’s possible on iOS 12 I mean you made it possible on iOS 13 and my iPod touch can’t even do that and there are some apps that even on iOS 12 that have dark mode like Facebook so I mean it wouldn’t be that hard to do it on Shazam on iOS 12 on an old iPod touch just with an update in the Shazam store please that’s what make my day I hate being blasted with the song last and white when I go into the app At least make it a little darker it doesn’t have to be super dark just a little darker like a grayish dark dark mode and then I’ll be happy I mean Facebook has a gray/dark mode on iOS 12 on the iPod touch for crying out loud and the iPad doesn’t even have it on Facebook and it’s on iOS 14 actually iOS 15 now because iOS 15 is out in developer beta form and there’s still no dark mode for Shazam but there is an iOS 15 beta for Facebook WTS same with iOS 12 for Facebook how does that work can you please add 1 plz.Version: 14.14

Well Earned 5 Star!!Okay, so-I happen to decide to see what songs this app recognizes by playing random songs on my TV and seeing which ones it happens to guess! First, I tried Mario Kart Menu Theme, which it guessed, then I tried Broly Vs Gogeta (Epic song, btw), which it guessed, Rip & Tear, BFG Division, Blue Sizzle, you get the point! Well, I was thinking....No way it’ll guess Learn 2 Fly’s techno theme, right!? Riiiight! Well!!! That blew up in my face because it guessed it!! At first I was skeptical, thinking, “No way this is actually it! It must be confusing it for another song, right!?” NOPE!! It actually put a name to a song I had been wishing for the possibility to have on my playlist and I found it ON ITUNES and bought it!! Not the second that happened, I *SCRAMBLED* to the app store to give this app a 5 Star review!! You legends basically just reunited my child gaming spirit with its gaming music SOULMATE!!! I cannot thank you guys enough for making an app that can actually put names to songs that nobody else seems to know the proper names of! Seriously! You guys are awesome!!! Im gonna continue to use this app so I can expand my playlist from now on! You guys have a *SPARKING* day!!! Sincerely & With Thanks, 5aiy4n-G0d.Version: 14.8

Love it- but needs quicker accessSo this app has been extremely helpful in the past. I HATE when I can’t remember the name of a song, or figure out who is singing when it’s on the tip of my tongue. This app has helped cut those moments down. But I usually run into the issue of not getting to it fast enough. By the time I remember to use it and go to open it on my phone and then press the button, it’s often been too late and the song is over 😫. If it could be listening in the background or as soon as I open it could fix that. Also I understand the complexity involved, but a lot of times I want to look up or listen to a song but can’t remember enough lyrics or anything, just a tune. I wish there was an app that didn’t rely on exact recordings but you could hum or sing parts you remember and it could guess a few options..?! 😆 I know that’s a tall order, but someone will be able to do it sometime in the future I guarantee it! Go for it Shazam! Start now! Lol. Anyway I had it at 3 stars for those 2 reasons. But given the amount of songs it recognizes (it’s never not recognized one that I’ve tried), and how it only needs about 2-5 seconds of ANY PIECE of ANY SONG, I evened it out to a 4 ⭐️. It’s really a 5 for what it does, but a 3 for its potential to expand. So bam, you get 4. Kbye..Version: 15.7

Shaquille O’Kneel down to the king, Shazam.I would like to put things into perspective by simply saying that if you are like me and have an acute fear of certain social interactions. One of those social underwear in school style nightmares is when I hear a song that just slaps my eyebrows off(in the best way possible) or that feeling you get when you hear a song that you haven’t heard since back when everyone discovered music via the radio. Each of those is a prime juicy example of how SHAZAM integrates its awesome self into your heart and phone haha I don’t want to boast too much but I have SHAZAM as a MF widget on my home screen... just saying all I do is click on the S-wait like 4 seconds-the BLAM- Shazam is all “here’s the exact song for you sir”- “would you like to add it to your playlist that you already had straight from here?”- I’m like “shhiii you already know” and it’s as simple as that folks...Shazam is a lifesaver/uniquely personalized playlist making/anxiety saving app god. If you are reading this then you have made a mistake.. you should have downloaded it first and then read all my app-praising whilst the downloadeth finished. Duh.Version: 14.21

Major iCloud SYNC problem with AppleI have used Shazam since it came out in 2002 and I love it!!! I’ve purchased countless Apple products from their 1st iPod to present iPhones & iPads. I run the latest iOS on all my devices; however there is a minor problem with iCloud sync. When you turn on iCould Sync for SHAZAM, it DOES NOT SYNC properly. I had thousands of songs from over the years and after turning on iCloud Sync I was left with ONLY 16 songs. (And if you’re wondering…I tried restoring my devices from my iCloud and iTunes backup, but neither worked since it’s not a separate category, and the songs were gone for good.) I contacted Apple support immediately and they didn’t even know they owned the app since 2018 (it’s now October 2022) and refused to help. Said “it’s not their problem.” I spent a week calling Apple everyday and every Support Person was horrible and rude. Over a 4 hour period, I was transferred to 25+ Senior Advisors & countless departments and each said it’s not their app and transferred me to the next Rep. I finally gave up! If you search Shazam on the Internet…all of this is public knowledge that Apple owns it, it’s not considered a third party app, & it states to contact Apple for support. To sum up…Shazam is great, Apple products are great, but APPLE SUPPORT IS HORRIBLE!.Version: 15.20

“Shazam!”There used to be a time in my younger years, it was a simple matter of identifying every single piece of music played on the radio. Now we’re in the 21st Century; radios have become practically obsolete, devices for playing music media beyond number. Each device having the capacity upwards of 100,000 songs. The average person needs some help knowing every song being played in a room within hearing range. Through the past ten years or more I’ve drifted back, and forth to Shazam. As my tool for telling me the name of the song I’m listening to. I’ve always never failed to notice, whenever there’s a song I need to know something about. Someone in the room has Shazam on the cell phone to help me out. Finally after a very long absence of getting by without Shazam on my phone. I downloaded the Shazam app on my phone for a long awaited reunion. The nicest feature about Shazam, it automatically connects me to my Apple Music. Then I can add the music I so quickly get identified added to my music collection on ITunes. Download the Shazam app, and give the music collection, and knowledge base a huge lift..Version: 13.12

I’d be so lost without this appEver hate when you hear a song out in public but you don’t know what the title is/who is singing it? Then you find it after spending spend hours searching for it through all the songs that have the same or similar lyrics? Yeah let’s just say this song helps cut that process down to mere a minute on average. As a note, sometimes (very rarely/really depends on your device) it may take closer to two minutes or may need you to activate it a couple times but most of the time once you activate it the first time you will find the song you’re hearing (granted if it is loud enough, but it can pick it up fairly well even if it’s barely in the background). So in conclusion, I would recommend this app 100% for any music lovers, and/or for those who find themselves in a similar position as mentioned above. It has saved me a lot of time/headache trying to remember lyrics and find a song. Just one press of the button and you could have your favorite song saved/recognized.Version: 14.22

Money Well SpentI don’t usually pay for iOS apps if there’s a free subscriber tier. I just download them, use them for free and suffer the ads… I’m into music and musicians in a big way. I play and make guitars, have played in bands on and off for decades, etc... I’ve been surrounded by and involved on some level with music of all kinds from my earliest memories as a child. My wife and I also watch a LOT of shows on streaming TV. I’m 67 and retired so I’ve got the time and there’s plenty to watch. When I hear songs in the soundtracks, I often get “triggered”; who is that? who does that? who did it first? where have I heard that song before?… You get the idea. I bought this app. I didn’t even think twice about it. “Sold, American!” (Well, don’t quote me on the provenance of the developers. Doesn’t matter, does it?) This app touches my soul. This app eases my troubled mind when I’m feeling overwhelmed and anxious about “Who does that song?” This app is well worth the dime!.Version: 15.20

I love your Shazam App, but there's one minor gripe I've with it!While I love getting '80s & some of the current downloaded songs that comes on from my alarm clock radio everyday when I get up 1st thing in the morning, but after an few and/or several weeks later on down the road, the songs are COMPLETELY different compared than to ones they once when I had 1st Shazammed it afterwards….!! I'm quite disappointed how your Shazam App DOESN'T even retained the original songs, music, and/or lyrics properly after few to several weeks later on down the road long after Shazammed it onto your Shazam App…!! I wanna keep your Shazam App on both of my iPhone & iPad, but if isn't neither fixed up properly and/or dealt within the near future by retaining all of the OG songs, musics and/or lyrics , I'm delete both of my Shazam App on both of my iPhone and iPad and I REALLY don't wanna go there when push comes to shove at that time….!!.Version: 15.2

My only problemDo you guys even look at the reviews??? My only problem is with the app’s widget. Shazam creates an unavoidable and seemingly impossible obstacle to get around. It’s SUPER annoying that the app can’t identify my Apple membership. After shazamming a song, the song result appears, and if you want to listen to the full song or find it in Apple Music, it displays a screen that gives you two options; subscribe to Apple Music or ‘already a subscriber?’. Even after choosing already a subscriber, it takes you to another screen that makes you choose a plan. No way around it other than remembering the song name and artist and manually going into Apple Music and searching it up which isn’t a hard task at all but then what’s the point of offering a service or option that doesn’t work? I don’t have the app just the widget. Could that be why? This seems like a bug. Please fix! Id give you 5 stars but then I don’t think you’d look at the review when it’s 5 stars! Lol.Version: 15.24

Shazam Is Simply the Best App Ever Created!My favorite app of all time. Hands down, no question. Both the function and the accuracy make it my favorite and most used app. I’m not sure what year Shazam was introduced but I know I had it early on was simply blown away that this technology now existed. Seriously, to me- a huge music fan- it was like going to the moon. I’m old - 47- so before the power of Google (let alone Shazam) I might hear a song in a movie or on the radio and not know what it was for weeks or months….or maybe never. And I get it FREE. I recall getting a message that because I was one of the early users I would get it free for life but they were now going to apply a minimum fee for new users. I think that is literally the coolest thing in the world and unheard of today. I’m very grateful. Shazam is the best app of all time. If you’re reading this review trying to decide if you should get it….stop reading and download it now..Version: 15.24

Love the app, miss the global mapPerfect app for many reason that have been stated by the many users you have. Love it and could picture a normal life without it, given my admiration and passion for music and musicians. Over the many updates, my favorite new artist and try explorer “secret weapon” was the global map navigation. Yes, it was tedious to expand at times, but this really a (admittedly skewed) idea of what any town were listening to, that could be pulled on that. Hope that map makes a come back, otherwise, superb essential app. Not sure how long ago that was...I have grown and I went to ups and downs!! Music is appeases the soul and spirit, and being able to always capture that “song”, and even do a bit of Karaoke with it...hope it leads to less wars..but also hope you are adding privacy respect to your mission. It’s a modern world and you must find a way to survive and be profitable. Just stopping by to say THANK YOU to you all AGAIN!!.Version: 14.10

Not dependableThis 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..Version: 12.0

Thought It Was Good...ButHad been using this app on and off in combination with SoundHound. One feature I like about this app is that you can “search a song” and it will save it to a history log Same As SoundHound but unfortunately this history isn’t “device transferable” unlike SoundHound and also I did I a series of searches from the control center (panel) which is a extremely useful feature that I don’t think SoundHound has but it was to my surprise after (falling default) to this method that these “searches” weren’t being saved only the ones that were searched when the app was visible on screen which as mentioned before is device specific and I can’t view on a different device 4/5 stars if this app saved history from the beginning of time as SoundHound did it would get the 5 stars as even if you logged in later after searching a series they would simply get added to you me account history with location(SoundHound) A+ App though I will say.Version: 14.4

A compass for my soundtrack of lifeCertain songs have always popped up at special times in my life, adding to a soundtrack of my life that brings back those memories. One very dark day in a surreal phase in my life, I spontaneously decided to ride to the coast to revisit a renovated historic inn for breakfast, something I always wanted to do since the last time I was there way back in my youth. As I walked thru the inn decorated with an eclectic assortment of odds & ends and sat down in the dining area, one of those high quality portable speakers was streaming this very haunting vintage-like song that caught my ear so I pulled out my iPhone & Shazam’d it, quickly identifying it as Song of the Highest Tower by Cut Worms. The song turned my attitude around, almost like a slap in the face returning me back to reality. Now I have a nice collection of music by Cut Worms but that song especially awakens my soul thanks to Shazam..Version: 15.16

Great app but weak connectionI always loved Shazam it serves as a great tool when discovering and exploring new music genres especially when you don’t know the name of the song. Just one problem, every time I try Shazamming every song it doesn’t work like at all. It’s always worked well no matter the location so bad service or internet connection is not an excuse. Yet every time I reinstall it, it starts to work again but sometimes or even most of the time it still doesn’t work. This is really becoming dumb and annoying because not only am I unable to discover music that I really begin to like and find interest in, but I don’t seem to understand why the app is now acting like this piece of junk to where it doesn’t seem to want to work anymore. Overall, great app and hopefully this is just some undiscovered bug..Version: 14.22

When I need the right words...Ever had a song stuck in your head. Regardless if it’s the latest top 40 hit or an old favorite from twenty years ago. Desperately wanting to put a little kick in your step or re-live a special moment, and you can’t because the words just are not there. The toon or the melody keeps playing over and over inside your head, but disappointed as the mood is shattered trying to piece together a few key words and make up a couple words that don’t even belong, left to hum a few bars then fizzle out. It absolutely kills the moment. Shazam affords the ability to locate that special song regardless of genre, artist, style or age of the hit. I am empowered to sing along with the tune, pull up the right lyrics and now that the frustration is over! You have helped me complete my day. Thank you Shazam!.Version: 14.10

Pretty Good for Lyrical Songs, but…I love using Shazam when I’m out in public and hear a good song I wanna add to my playlists. My one issue with the app I’ve experienced so far is that it isn’t too good at recognizing songs without lyrics. Most songs in genres like dubstep or classical struggle to get any result at all, or end up with a result that is incorrect. At least with songs that have lyrics, I have a chance to look them up myself to find results if the app can’t. Unfortunately, songs without lyrics are near impossible to find unless it is one you might already know. I hope in a future update, more non-lyrical songs can be added to the database to help Shazam those songs. To end on a positive note, I appreciate the app’s ability to find songs in languages other than English! It helped me find a song I was looking for after years of failed searching myself! Thank you! :).Version: 15.23

Very Impressed. Amazed, really.I've spent my lockdown time ripping my cd collection to FLAC, and I came across one of my electronic mix cd's from around 2002. No song listing, no CD-Text, not even a label. I spent about an hour looking through my computer files to see if I had any notes or playlists or cd-burning files that would help me identify the unfamiliar music on the disc. I tried listening to it to see if I could figure out the songs, but no luck at all. I was thinking there was no way Shazam would be even remotely helpful for this kind of stuff. I was dead wrong. Shazam nailed every single song, even the remixes. It identified one song as "The Sheriff" by Fila Brazilla, but the times didn't match up when I double checked AllMusic. My version was longer than the listed time. I did a little more research to see if there was a longer version. When there wasn't, I decided to check to see if that song ripped with extra silence at the head or tail in error on my CD. Sure enough, Shazam was right, and my disc was wrong: 30 seconds of silence at the end of the track. I am seriously stunned at what a great job Shazam did with such an eclectic disc of music. I knew it was good at the popular stuff, but most of these songs didn't have lyrics (and in some cases, melodies.) Anyway, highly recommended and highly grateful..Version: 13.15

Special songs I like.I like to purchase music to play in my car. I do not usually want to buy full albums, but specific songs that I like. What I love about Shazam is that there may be a commercial with a song I like or a movie will feature a certain song. I may not know the correct name or who sings it. All I have do is Shazam it and there it is. I have used it so many times. My playlist for my car is unbelievable. All good songs. Not 30% or 70%, but 100% songs I like. The only bummer is that I used to be able to press purchase And it took me right to the place where I could purchase the song. I can’t do that now or if I can I do not know how. I am not interested in paying a monthly fee for all the music in the world. I want only specific songs and sometimes I might not be able to remember the name. Purchasing is the best option for me!.Version: 13.13

Songs while offlineThis app is very useful for finding songs you may not know the name of or new songs that you've never heard before. I only have a few problems with this app. When you shazam a song while your offline it says that it'll tell you the song when you have connection. I travel a lot and am a lover of all music genres so I have quite a majority of songs from around the world, and I might not always have wi-fi to connect to. I'm currently abroad for a wedding and my carrier doesn't support data outside of my country, so at the after party they played loads of songs I liked; I went to shazam them and waited till I got back to my hotel to open the app, and there was no sign of them. Another problem I have is Auto-Shazam. I turn it on and when I go listen to a song on a video and it doesn't react. Overall this app is useful, but there are some features that claim to work, but don't..Version: 13.4

Shazaman! Searchin!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!.Version: 11.8.2

Too bad that Shazam joined AppleIt used to be wonderful you could catch a tune and then sing along with the lyrics . I was HAPPY Now hours later you realize that it didn’t record and the magic of the mood is gone plus you got home and it is dark cold and lonely and you have to cook dinner instead of singing in the car on the way home. Now I can’t even find the Shazam’s where do they go on Apple and when I get home I don’t want to be scrolling around looking for music anyhow With the old Shazam I could pull up a huge long list of my Shazam’s and play them easily and move them to Apple playlists easily Now the software engineers screwed up and it is a mess Also my phone broke and I have a new phone I am afraid of losing my songs if I log in it is confusing how to move things to Apple.Version: 14.22

Older songsI’ve noticed you are using the release date of that certain song which may not be when it was originally released. I know songs released in 60’s and 70’s have this done when album is reissue. I’m having to look up correct year when making year specific play lists. Also, younger people take that as correct & won’t be argued out of it. Would it be a huge problem to add Originally Released showing that year. Shazam doesn’t always recognize older songs. Just finished watching Ken Burns series Country Music and a there were a lot of artists not recognized at all. It seems to not recognize music that’s not mainstream. I don’t tend too listen to mainstream all the time. Local groups aren’t noticed sometimes either even ef they’ve had a few albums out. Shazam not too bad keeping up with massive amount of music there is today. I just get annoyed sometimes when I can’t find the words to that dang song that’s playing right now!.Version: 13.0

Classical and Modern Serious Music.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..Version: 11.13.0

Awesome way to Name That Tune!!I can’t remember who turned me onto this app years ago, but it’s always been a handy tool. The app is much improved since I first started using it. Most of the music I listen to is from the 60’s through the early 2000’s. Sometimes I use it if I hear something I know, but haven’t heard it in years and am drawing a blank. Other times, I will hear something on a TV show I like but have no clue who the current artist is. Shazam let’s you open the song in Apple Music and other options. You can save it, make a playlist and I’m sure some other tricks I haven’t figured out yet. It’s picked up titles within a couple seconds. In the past, If there was any dialog I would try to find a break in whatever show I was watching to find the song. Not the case anymore!.Version: 14.13

I love this appI use this app so often. When I’m in the car and song comes on the radio that I want to learn about, or one I love and want to remember, I open Shazam and capture the song. It is really a wonderful tool. I even captured a song off a tv show we were watching last night! There was so much voice noise on top of the song I wasn’t sure it was going to work, and it took a couple of try’s rewinding the tv show and trying again, but bingo Shazam caught the song! I love that I can look at the list of “My Music”, songs that I’ve captured, and the option to listen in iTunes or to purchase. My song list stays, I guess till I delete something?, because they’re all there. This is one of the best apps available. And for sure one of my favorites. Thank you Shazam!.Version: 15.12

I’ve Been Shazam—otized !!!!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. ❤️❤️❤️❤️😊.Version: 12.4.1

Cool but there’s a flaw with the iOS implementationWhen you Shazam tracks from within the actual app and have the Apple Music sync feature these songs *automatically* get added to a custom Shazam playlist in the app. Unfortunately with the new iOS features that also allow you to Shazam track do not work with this feature… and that makes no sense because Apple owns Shazam! Take for instance, asking Siri “what song is this?” Siri will accurately get the song info and also allow you to open the sign in Shazam. All standard behavior. It even shows the new track a newly shazamed song. Unfortunately the automatic playlist doesn’t recognize this as a true Shazam. Same with when you use the iOS shortcut within the shortcuts app or when you use the newly implemented control center button. All three of these methods for Shazaming do not work with the Apple music syncing feature. PLEASE FIX THIS..Version: 14.4

Could Be BetterIt 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..Version: 11.4.3

Very helpfulLove finding songs that I want to listen to later that I’m currently listening to wherever. Unless I’m offline in no service it saves it but if I accidentally exit out of the app, it will delete it and not find out what it was. And you have to open the app once your back in wifi/service for that offline one to be found, it won’t do it on its own so I usually forget to do so which is unfortunate.. or if your at the end of the song, sometimes it’s not enough time for it to figure out the song which is disappointing. Sometimes if it’s not a famous enough song or an unusual one, it can’t find it at all or sometimes it gets it wrong. That is probably the worst situation that happens with it but overall it’s helpful and definitely helps me find new music that I want to continue to listen to later...Version: 15.21

The most important app in the history of the internet!Shazam! When I was young I would spend a third of my meager pay check that I earned working at an ice cream shop situated on University hill in Boulder CO by walking across the street to “Album’s on the Hill” on my breaks and buying music. I seldom came across a CD that had more than one or two good songs on it and so I prayed. I prayed for the music gods to give me the power to identify, sample, and explore an artist’s catalogue without committing my hard earned cash to the proverbial crap shoot that was the new and used CD bins at the local record shop. Shazam you heard my prayer and you answered. It’s like you’re always listening and you have all the answers… wait Shazam are you…no you can’t be…but perhaps to an old skeptic like me you’re pretty much God..Version: 15.3

Really fun to write and watchThe reason why it’s so much fun is so much fun while pushing the button it just beeps and then it listens and you’re done when it goes to a song like bad day when I looked up is it literally could show you it could show you that like him it could show you the like songs and sometimes you can watch the video to the song so much fun and then if you like it look up on your playlist so let’s run the reason why some people don’t like it is because like it’s just boring to them and you just push the button is boring boo-hoo some of them say and like maybe like maybe they just wanna know the song because it’s like sound super terrible something like that but the app is so much fun it’s very organizing and you need it so yeah.Version: 14.22

Life changerWhoever created this app purely genius and only for the people who really enjoy music. People can tell you that the Love music, but people who really enjoy music Will tell you how music can change their mood around if they’re happy you can make them sad, if they’re sad or upset you can make them happy. These kind of people, allows the music to get inside her heart and soul those are the true believers of sound of music. Which is a great movie by the way a.k.a.. So thank you , Shazam you’ve allowed me to download music from anywhere I go to the department store, elevator, just listen to the music in your car, I can finally do you know who’s singing that song in actually have it downloaded it onto my Music list. Finally someone who is developed this app understands what I’m saying about music. Blanco.Version: 12.9

Shazam music library or knowledge of songsI have experienced that Shazam has in some cases it doesn’t recognize a song or songs, music etc for some reason. I have experienced in particular music one of my favorite music Latin music be it from the 1950s/60s/70s/80s. I am from New York, some music genres are Afo-Cuban, Mambo, Son, Guanguanco, Son Montuno etc and Shazam does not recognize some songs or music sadly. I listen to a radio station WFDU Saturdays 1pm - 6pm and they play a mixed array of the types of music, songs I am referring to, maybe if someone in the organization can listen a few Saturdays, one can get a good grasp of what is being brought attention to, it would be greatly appreciated, thank you, P.S. my compliments to the great body of work done thus far, hats off to the hard work done!.Version: 14.7

One of My Top 5 AppsI LOVE THIS APP. I’m always on the hunt for new music and this app helps me do that! I love how I can be out and about, hear a song, hold up my phone, and in less than five seconds I’ve learned what it is. And it can seriously hear the song even if you’re out in a public place and the music isn’t that loud! Let me give you a few examples. I was in a busy chipotle and it gave me the song title. I was in a lens crafter and could barely hear the speaker myself. And there was this song from this short 1 minute video where my friend is talking over the song and all you can hear in the background is the melody but I was like OMG WHAT IS THAT SONG and I thought there was no way the app would be able to get it because the song was so subtle but low and behold it discovered it! DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!.Version: 13.5

Apple Music integration ideaI want to thank Shazam for making my idea a reality in record time!!! First review: I’ve always loved Shazam! Been using as long as I can remember… I’ve always been wanting to be able to see the lyrics to the song I am currently looking up on Shazam… but even more so AND NOW that Apple Music has integration capabilities— it would be soooo RAD if Shazam could open the song from the same point the Shazam starts and open Apple Music at that part of the song with the lyrics in sync so we wouldn’t have to restart the song to see the lyrics, we could just read along the lyrics from our Shazam/Apple Music device while continuing the song on the device it’s currently playing on. Hopefully this makes sense!.Version: 14.24

Several IssuesShazam 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..Version: 11.4.0

Used to be great but now barely functionalThis used to be an AMAZING app, and I used to be able to pick up songs from faint fragments of music in fairly crowded areas. For the past 2+ months, Shazam hasn’t been able to consistently capture well-known songs playing loudly at home with no other noise competition whatsoever. It can get about 1 out of every 5 attempts in no-noise-competition conditions, and even fewer in noisy conditions. Most of the time it just tells me my search is difficult and to “hang tight,” but does this for so long that the songs ends- at which point Shazam helpfully tells me there’s no match. Hope you guys have a fix for this coming soon because Shazam went from being a super-powerful, easy to use app to a mostly broken spinning dial that times out if you don’t restart the app, sometimes restarting several consecutive times..Version: 15.10

Annoying issue I’ve had, and finally got tired of.I had SoundHound for years, but over time realized that it seemingly had a smaller database than Shazam around when I first installed it. It was fine for a while, but it seemingly only remembers searches when it feels like it? I can’t find anyone else that has had the same issue, but when I go to the app, and go through my Shazam history it will only track certain recordings. I can’t always check the songs I Shazam because often when I hear them, I’m at work so I liked being able to put it on, and sort of bookmark it for later.. but not the case with Shazam. For instance, today I searched for songs on 2-3 occasions, and all I have is a history result from last week.. I’ve finally deleted it to go back to soundhound simply because I know that my history will be saved there :/.Version: 15.5

Good for what it’s forThis app is great once you figure out what it’s for—identifying songs being played, as in on the radio or at the mall or by a roommate when the transactional cost of just asking is too high. For a long time I could never figure out why the app couldn’t recognize even simple songs I sang or hummed, officially giving up when it couldn’t even recognize my laudable rendition of Happy Birthday to You, which is, like, the most recognizable song in the world. But then a friend filled me in on the app’s actual purpose, and, upon verifying his claim through several test runs, my scorn was replaced with unabashed admiration. I find the app especially useful for classical music. Though, there was one Mendelssohn piece that it took several tries to identify….Version: 14.19

So convenient, So clever, So revolutionaryHonestly though I garauntee every human being & definitely the better half that’s either reading reviews, reviewing their own , or is too busy using this amazing app has had to deal with those crappy moments when you hear new music you know you love but know you won’t hear again until you happen to be lucky enough to hear it again or the even crappier moments when you specifically want to hear one of those songs you heard but can’t because you don’t remember the name of it or worse yet you never end up knowing any music because you never are able to learn the music you hear and my PERSONAL least favorite.. knowing so much music but never knowing the names of them Until sazam.Version: 14.14

Most Reliable App Ever Made!!Since day one and what seems like endless apps downloaded since apps were created, Shazam has been that constant, that rock, that reliable friend. This app has been with me throughout the years and hasn’t failed, hasn’t been stuck in some circling mode of hell or crashed. Sure, maybe it’s had some hiccups getting some songs incorrect or versions of certain songs but we all have hiccups! Shazam you have helped me be mom o’ the year and always knowing the song 😉. You didn’t stop there either- you went further with letting me sing along!! It doesn’t get better than this app. Thanks Shazam, we are super cool together! Please stay this way. Add a trivia guessing game and BOOM outta the ballpark. Stay away from bugs. Stay safe. Continue to be awesome!! Love, Mom SHAZAM ROCKS!.Version: 13.1

Great app when it works!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!.Version: 11.4.3

3.5 starsThe 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.Version: 11.13.0

I love this❤️❤️💙💙I can listen to literally anything. I can just say, this is the best app that exists. I used to have the clipp like you go in settings and click add clips so I’ll know it’s safe now I downloaded the app and it is the best app I can listen to any song when I click the song it brings it right to me then I listen on Apple Music it’s so cool I didn’t know Apple Music was with Shazam now that is fun few, that was a mouth full but anyhoo I love this and instead of 5 stars Shazam gets 1,000,000 star rating ❤️❤️❤️❤️ oh one more thing sorry but I your looking for a song the the people who rated: if you know or don’t know you need the app Shazam and you can search the song or you can put some of the lyrics in the search that what helps me.Version: 15.19

ReviewVery good.Version: 11.3.0

Fabulously Amazing!Throughout all of my Shazam’s. They are all correct and this app is perfect for finding the name of that perfect song. Great app!.Version: 12.18

Best App Ever!Have you ever been someplace and heard a tune that is special to you but no way of asking anyone what it is? Boom this does it! Music is something that can perk up your soul when you need it. Especially during these difficult times..Version: 13.14

Love the app.Amazing response, quick and love the ability where it automatically adds the Shazam’s to either Apple Music library or Spotify..Version: 12.18

Shazam reviewShazam is really good when I don’t know what a song is. My only complaint would be that they are sometimes slow for guessing the song..Version: 13.20

ShazamAwesome.Version: 12.18

Un petit soucisShazam et vraiment super très bien pour trouver ce que l’on cherche mais j’ai une musique que j’avais film sur ma ps vita je connais pas le titre je le fais écoute à Shazam mais elle me donne pas le bon morceau elle ma donner un autre artiste qui n’a rien avoir avec la musique que j’ai fait écouter à Shazam la musique que j’ai fait écouter était la voix d’une femme qui chante mais il me donne un homme qui n’a rien avoir avec le morceau que j’ai.Version: 12.10

Appli la plus intelligenteUne appli complet et convivial au max.Version: 12.19

Petite déceptionDepuis la création de Shazam, je suis devenu un fan de l’application. Je regrette cependant comme utilisateur que nous avons perdu au fil du temps la possibilité de fredonner des chansons pour les identifier tandis que c’était initialement faisable. Ça demeure une bonne app même si c’est également dommage qu’elle soit maintenant avalée par Apple et combinée avec ces autres tentacules pour tenter de nous forcer de lui fournir encore plus de nos infos personnelles et de nos préférences pour nous enfoncer de travers dans la gorge ses publicités ou produits et services complémentaires. Sinon ça demeure une de mes applications les plus utilisées..Version: 12.19

Recent songs ShazammedDoes not tell you the recent songs when back online like it says it will.Version: 15.12

SucksCant even shazam a great opera.Version: 14.2

SaviourStuck guessing a song on the radio that you just know who the singer is but can’t place it? Load up Shazam and within seconds you’ll have your answer..Version: 15.12

For old timersShazam is great for borderline “I can’t remember anything” patients Once you read the song You remember everyone you ever danced with to that song.Version: 14.15

Idk what to thinkI mean the app is good but Every time I sing or play a song on my phone the song doesn’t show up it just says “can find the song your looking for” I can’t tell if it’s my fault but personally I think the app doesn’t work.Version: 15.11

Wow!Super!.Version: 13.23

👻Its better than any app.Version: 13.19

AmazingWell it’s amazing that’s all I need to say.Version: 12.18

Une bonne applicationTrès bien comme app j adore 👌.Version: 11.3.0

My Crazy ex Wife :)So, buckle up for a story kids, this one’s a longie. So, I was watching tiktok and then I remembered this oldie song called Fake ID- I mean I didn’t know what the name was, but I was just like wth is that song? And so I was looking for music detectors. My wife (ex now) told me the song was called Real ID- but it was FAKE ID! I looked up this app cause that didn’t sound right and then I sung it and I WAS RIGHT!! IT WAS FAKE ID NOT REAL ID! I was SO F***king MAD!!! I made a divorce right now, and thankfully like a stork from heaven, my wife was heartbroken and left, but yet SHE WAS WRONG! I don’t need a WRONG wife! I need a WISE wife! UgH! Anyways bye bye ex wife, I’m so OVEr you. 😈.Version: 14.16

WonderfulIt can pick up the most insignificant sound that’s playing in the background of something and identify the song….Version: 15.23

I wishI wish ya expand and pick up movies to share that be amazing.Version: 15.24

Great app with new apple integrationI love how I can add a Shazam shortcut to my control panel and scan music digitally (like on Instagram or YouTube) and also use the same button to access songs playing out loud in real world situations..Version: 15.23

Works excellentThis app works good . I have yet to come across a song it can’t identify and with its integration to apple I can have the song downloaded to my library before you can say Shazam!.Version: 15.24

Apple music badUrhh apple music, let me spotify autoplay.Version: 15.24

Love It!Easily one of my favourite apps of all time. As a music lover I can’t say enough about Shazam. Incredibly smart algorithms helping me identify that song I need to know immediately. One of my most heavily relied upon apps. Of course almost no one needs to be told this, but if you don’t already know, you need this..Version: 15.24

Thanks!!Greatest app ever!!.Version: 15.24
