Grew My Music Interest
Trebla0913 on 8/21/2017
I grew up listening to mainly Hip Hop/Rap/R&B/Latin music. When I started going to dive bars that mainly played Indi Pop/Rock songs, I liked the songs. This app helped me discover new songs that I heard. I feel so cultured now because of this app. (Yes, I might be at a dive bar right now, typing this review.....if you're my boss, please don't fire me)
Such a good app!
Marshall0010 on 8/20/2017
Some songs that I love today I would of never found if it wasn't for this amazing app.
It listens to the song and figures it out in 5 seconds
Olivia123piggy on 8/20/2017
This app is amazing
Really great at its main job
cfrydlewicz on 8/20/2017
I wish its integration with Spotify worked more smoothly, but it's great otherwise.
Love it

Msjoey23 on 8/20/2017

This is the best app ever!!!!!
Hi from NJ
Aleksandr Kliucheuski on 8/20/2017
Very useful app. But it have a problem. Sometimes it recognizes song like remix or cover, it affects the song's and singer's static in my mind.
Wide songs collection
Zuoxiaohei on 8/20/2017
No matter English song or other language.
yogui :D on 8/20/2017
This is a good app 👌🏻✌🏻️
More than i thought <•^.^•>
Qc_Nguyen on 8/20/2017
Previously I used Midomi to find songs I don't know name. But, since I discovered Shazam, it can find everything like remix or just uploaded songs. In my opinion it really useful to me, I really don't mind to pay for add free and I also want to support creator for making this app. (My English is not good but I tried whatever I can)
The best!
Sparklicking on 8/19/2017
When the musics playing it find every song just in 2 seconds!!
Kozbert on 8/19/2017
Where have you been???? Love it
Gadeb47 on 8/19/2017
Simply Amazing!!!!
Does not pick up music near as good as the old version of SoundHound
Kevs200090210 on 8/19/2017
Sound hound used to pick up music from extremely far away with a lot of stray noise. Now it barely picks up when standing next to a speaker.
Armafit24 on 8/19/2017
Excelente me encanta para encontrar cada canción que me gusta y que está sonando en el momento
Boom boo bang OHHH on 8/19/2017
App is perfect for finding any name for songs
fbrjfujf on 8/19/2017
Amazing, very helpful
😊 Shazam is totes a 👏awesome👏 app!! 😊
Bella4ever886 on 8/19/2017
💓 Shazam has always been an incredibly precise app that functions just as it's made to do and advertised as being able to correctly identify any song you need to identify etc....but there are times where my Shazam will work perfectly and other times where there's a song clearly playing yet when I try to Shazam that song it comes back saying no result try again?!? So just to be clear love this app because it's helped me to find out the name of just about any and every song I want to to know the name of so that I can purchase the song but there are times where my Shazam pisses me off coming back with the no result response?!?! But that's a rare occasion, just wish it didn't happen cuz that means Shazam ain't exactly 100% or 110% correct and awesome 😳...hence why I've given Shazam only 4 stars cuz I had to take one Point away for my rating because of the times Shazam didn't function like advertised. Hopefully it won't happen again and maybe I need to make sure it's loud enough or something but that's my rating on Shazam! Very cool app that I am very thankful for!!! I always wanted an app like this where it could identify the name and artist of a particular song that I am loving but don't know the name or artist and without the song's name how the heck will I be able to ever get it via my iPhone and iPad ?? But thanks to SHAZAM I'm now always able to identify any new songs that come out that have my interest and now all I got to do is press Shazam while it's playing and I've got the songs title along with the artist's name!! Shazam is a classic app and truly fabulous 💓
Awesome app
Kincaid99 on 8/19/2017
I enjoy using the app to Id songs that I don't know or just heard for the first time.
Just like that musicologist who knew all of the melodies at the old downtown record store!
Eprn on 8/19/2017
Right after downloading, I held my Ipad up to the radio and within seconds, Shazam was showing, "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face", performing artist, with album art from My Fair Lady and where to stream or purchase. WOW
Worst app
isabelle the bawse on 8/19/2017
It doesn't even work!
Great app
drichmann101 on 8/19/2017

Tucana sumana on 8/19/2017
Easy to work with and reliable. Unlike my ex-wife. YEAH THAT'S RIGHT SUSAN, SHAZAM IS BETTER THAN YOU
I love this app
bella 🍓 on 8/19/2017

Great app but
Matt3829492$ on 8/18/2017
This app is good but legit can't find any remixes and a few songs
Confusing and hard to operate
Jj for laylay on 8/18/2017
Its a good app and such but i was watching tv and i wanted to play along with the show and i could not figure out how to play along and searched it up and no results
iPad not supported
njrifon on 8/18/2017
Screw this
The greatest app
L. Voorhies on 8/18/2017
I listen to a lot of old music from blue grass to classical instrumental. This has never failed me.
Please Stop
drdjak on 8/18/2017
Please stop telling me how long it took you to Shazam a song! I don't care! Often I like to take screenshots of what I Shazam, and I don't want that message there. It's just one more thing I need to click off. And half the time when I try to tap it away it takes me somewhere I don't want to go. I've also noticed you only tell me how long it took you to Shazam a song when you do it quickly, not when you do it slowly -very lame.
Djdkjcmdu on 8/18/2017
Best app ever
Works great
Luxe01 on 8/18/2017
It recognizes the songs that aren't so popular and even those from Eastern Europe
Great App....
NYCYOLO on 8/18/2017
......For finding out the title/name of a particular song/album👍🏼
Absolutely fantastic app

Последние обновления
Fifa14bestgame02 on 8/18/2017
Вы знаете, с телефоном проблем никаких нет, и всё с ним в порядке. После недавнего обновления Шазама многие композиции начали очень долго загружаться, а также перестали их выводить. С чем это связано, я не знаю, но отдаю свое предпочтение SoundCloud... Я очень разочаровался в вас, а ведь вы были когда-то наилучшими...
A fave app!
wendyjogordon on 8/18/2017
I love this app! It's crucial when you hear something you love and you don't know what it is; and when you want to remember to buy something to put on your playlist later.
Best App
Love fruit 22 on 8/18/2017
I've been using this for awhile and I love it. I have discovered so many new songs. Especially while watching my favorite shows.
mtae7173 on 8/18/2017
this app is good but you only use it so much
I was forced to rate the app
nullbie on 8/18/2017
Got annoying review popup. Even on iOS 10.3 supporting review API.
vfblackman on 8/18/2017
Finds even obscure music from abroad after even just a few notes!
home boy!!! 510 on 8/17/2017
Finally an app to help figure out songs. Very Helpful 🙌
Beat invention Ever Created
Superwind234 on 8/17/2017
I think this is the best invention created because without it trillions people will be so lost in trying to find the song they want that they are listening too right now
Poodiepiee on 8/17/2017
I love it cause it gives you the song really quick
Fun app!
Ketcheverria on 8/17/2017
My daughter turned me to this--what fun for one who doesn't know every song in the world
