When I’m riding along in my car or kicking back on the couch. This app doesn’t let me down it grabs the song and brings it home to me!
Love this app

Love this app
Integration w Spotifyis abysmal
rock_musician on 2/20/2018
V poor Spotify integration.
Lost in translation
tobebinho on 2/20/2018
This app used to be amazing at first, now it takes forever to even start to listen the songs and then it can’t never find the name. Waist of time..
Not quick enough
Viziers on 2/20/2018
It takes so long to start up!! I want to be able to Shazam it as soon as I open it with out having to have it running in the background. I can do that with my droid phone and used to be able to with my iPhone. By the time I can Shazam the song is over. And there should be a way to Shazam quickly from every screen on the app!
KelleyCakes on 2/20/2018
Name that tune (if ur old enough 2 remember that game show) doesn't have sh💩t on Shazam!! This app kicks all kinds of 🐐!
It’s the best
scraa pacacacaca skiriki poco on 2/20/2018

Simply AWESOME!!! 😍😍👏🏼👏🏼
The best app ever!!
1healthyCal on 2/20/2018
How did we ever live without Shazam!!!
Miracle app
JL Krumditty on 2/20/2018
Shazam’s a freakin’ miracle, sorta like having a good pair of scissors... I use it all the time but am newly impressed every time it works so well. It’s hard to find a song that Shazam can’t identify, and FAST. Keep up the great work, guys. 😋
Apples20155 on 2/20/2018
The BEST app in the WHOLE world!!
I already have I music account
Iman R on 2/20/2018
It's great app but since ios11.2.5 and shazam 11.6.2, the connection by the I music lost and I tried everything to recover it but all was failed so I can't listen to music which I shazamed or find it directly in I music so it made shazam useless for me. I wait too long for 11.7.0 and nothing changed.
YvngGxd617 on 2/20/2018
This app is so cool, I thought it wouldn’t work because there are thousands of songs that sound the same. Yet Shazam is still able to figure it out. I think it’s an amazing app. 💯💯
gmariey on 2/20/2018
The lyrics are in the app and follow along with the song finally. It didn't do that or I couldn't figure it out before, so I got rid of the app for awhile.
Eldodave on 2/20/2018
So often I hear a song I don't know. Tap the button and in a few seconds I get the answer. I can't imagine the size of their database Great app
My fav app
Drackma1 on 2/20/2018
Shazam never lets me down i love that i can always know the songs i listen to at the store or parties
NUKE 1 on 2/20/2018
I love Shazam I first had blue then I bought red because ad free. You dropped red now it will not be updated and you are selling blue as ad free. What is next ad free....what?
Great 👍🏼
0p1n10ns21 on 2/20/2018
Good app, it’s very helpful when I have no clue what I’m listening to and very easy app to get!! One thing I dislike is that if you Shazam a song, you automatically follow that person. If you could, please change this!!!
Would've been great
AFR AFR Nickname that works on 2/20/2018
I was hopeful. I thought it would work. It couldn't identify a single song I gave it.
One of my top 3 apps
GuitarMike101 on 2/20/2018
In a list of my fav apps...Shazam is in my top's a great app
Love it
your dad tommy on 2/19/2018
Not most low popular songs known but awesome
ScouserTommy on 2/19/2018
Less than 1 second: knows the song. And on the rare occasion it doesn't know the song it's honest and tells you it doesn't know. It doesn't give you some bunk answer or some "sponsored" answer. RIP to the days of hearing a song and trying to remember a few lines of the lyrics so you can google it later.
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
Frhamid on 2/19/2018
How much did Apple Pay you b*stards to remove the link from iTunes
Sonica055 on 2/19/2018

It’s great
Alexander Jazz on 2/19/2018
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.
All You Need

menal1 on 2/19/2018
Press, play the song, read the lyrics or listen to more from the artist, or more about the artist itself! Love it
wesvirgini on 2/19/2018

xracerx13 on 2/19/2018
Missed on bands like BLUR, Marc Almond, the Vaccines, etc.!
Love love love this app..
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!
aubrisamazing on 2/19/2018
Very cool and helpful for me
Spotify playlist PROBLEM
Dr.Muhammad.Omar on 2/19/2018
Still Problem not solved with the update . Not giving playlist . PLZ DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT
Broke. Sync
Jenxhei284$behxb on 2/19/2018
Doesn’t sync with Apple Music and doesn’t automatically add songs to the my Shazam playlist.
mentat69 on 2/19/2018
Works great. Lots of features
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!
