Amazing app!
sugarbush48 on 2/19/2018
I hadn’t used Shazam for years. When I downloaded the current version I tried some obscure jazz and blues songs I had on my iMac, and it identified every one correctly. I’m a long time musician and this technology is just remarkable.
Crap - new update

Hear a great song that fits your vibe atm and you want to know what it’s called so you could add it to your fire playlist to make it even more fire? Use Shazam. Best app ever created, seriously, so convenient.

My jljh on 2/19/2018
Would be a 5 star if you could incorporate a way to save songs and videos to an album like YouTube.. I always have to screen shot then open YouTube to save my Shazam. Other than that I recommend this app to everyone!

amirazari76 on 2/19/2018
It’s amazing
New update makes it difficult to use.
KitShicker43 on 2/19/2018
It was easy with everything on a handful of screens. Now with the lyrics on a different page from the video from the artist it feels bloated (not unlike what did to "refresh" their look a few years back) and no longer clean and simple. Also I can't select and copy the text from the lyrics any longer. That's just annoying - part of what made the app appealing was its "one stop shop" to accessing and sharing a song - now I have to also search out the lyrics elsewhere or retype them if I want to share them in a message for example. It's a small thing but it worked easily before and now it requires extra steps. And with the lyrics page - the "listening" function that keeps the text highlighted while listening to the song is really neat, but forcing the view back to the next highlighted lyric if I scroll back to the top of another section is also irritating. It takes away my ability to use the app the way I want to. I've purchased Shazam in the past when there was a paid version and would happily do so again to get the functionality back the way it was... taking control away from the user is never the way to go!

Awesome if you have Apple Music!
Good but lacking
amitiel on 2/18/2018
Shazam is pretty cool for most American pop & rock music, but it is seriously lacking when it comes to electronic, classical, and international music.
chinakitty on 2/18/2018
Isn’t it amazing how great this App is, so simple to use and worth a bundle especially when you want to know a new song or just remember one. 5***** cause they are all-ways right there. Thank You Gregory

I like it
Great app for music lovers!
mattcab on 2/18/2018
While Shazam doesn’t pin classical music very well and some other obscure genres, it is very effective at helping you figure out what that song is playing at the end of the movie or in the restaurant.
powdota on 2/18/2018
The best app to know the specific information that you need for a song or an artist. Very very quickly.
elizamacari on 2/18/2018
Shazam always gives accurate songs! I love all of it the music it chooses.
Song choice
Puddingsky on 2/18/2018
Whenever I hear a song that I love, but didn't know the singer, I go to Shazam for an instant identification, plus album cover and lyrics. Awesome!
