Top of the line app what else can I say about the app other than it works!!!
The coolest app ever!!
Lolkittydogpaws on 8/16/2017
I seriously love this app. At first I thought it was going to be one of those fake apps that don't work but it turned out to work better than I imagined!! It identifies everything I would want it to do. I love this app and would 100% recommend it. 😁💗
This is so boring on 8/16/2017
If you automatically want to know the name of a song you've for the first time, this the app for you, the faster your internet the better, and also you can save the songs you like once you've created a profile to check them out later, which i think is a great idea.
Love it

Benchmark of great apps
berns1000 on 8/16/2017
It practically made the iPhone what it is as one of the original apps that made you want the smartphone. It never disappoints and continues to evolve.
I got a Shazam in 0.2 seconds 😝😝😝😝😝#☝️

Alaska mailman on 8/15/2017
Great app
Amazing app!!!
junior.gentleman on 8/15/2017
I have to love Shazam because it's a very convenient app that makes life a little easier. Usually you would have to ask people for the song... but, what if nobody knew what the song was called? *gasp* Well you would probably have to try to ask google, but google doesn't do what Shazam does. Shazam is definitely a very creative and well thought out app and I am happy to say that I use my precious phone space on this app. (:
Love it ! ❤️
Aloha! from Hawaii :) \||/ on 8/15/2017
Very fast on catching what the song name is
Great app
larry nem on 8/14/2017
Great app
Keeps saying offline
Byakuya214 on 8/14/2017
Had the app store a number of pending songs to tag as I'm offline. Whether on wifi or cellular data doesn't matter. Turn off and on, airport mode and still offline. At least it is still opening unlike other users after this recent update.
Sally McSaggyface on 8/14/2017
I use it for every song I hear but can't remember the name of! Or if I hear a song in a vine I'll open it up and search the song. It's such a good app. Five stars from me!!
Obvs a great app
Terra nova909088 on 8/14/2017
This app has been active for so long and yet, it's barely changed which is great. One thing though, I was hoping you could add a feature where say, there's a song in a video but the video doesn't say or credit the song. A cool feature would be that you search for the video, Shazam then goes through the video to scan for any songs. Just a suggestion.
Excelent, basic for everyone!
che-lis on 8/14/2017
Very good!
Fix app
Harrisonvader on 8/14/2017
This app use to work but not anymore, please fix the app use to be great but now every time I put I up to the source of the music it won't work, ugh!
The moohie department on 8/14/2017

JOSEACOBE on 8/14/2017
Why won't the iPad version
Djjamjam on 8/13/2017
Why won't the iPad version doesn't allow you to play on beat Shazam will change to five stars if this is fixed thanks

Best of App Store
KERBER0S on 8/13/2017
Shazam is an absolutely amazing app, never leave home without it! Out for dinner, you listen to a nice beat? SHAZAM it!

Just Me Ind on 8/13/2017

Am pleases
iKidMoon on 8/13/2017
Works great 👌🏾
Game changer
the awsome possum on 8/13/2017
Really cool app. Works well . Was surprised it knows even some of the old underground songs
It even knows obscure music
rlaud52 on 8/13/2017
I recently heard some music I'd never heard before by Ozric Tenticles. A very obscure band out of England, they've apparently been around for a while, though. Shazam knew them. Cool app.
Shjsj1 on 8/13/2017
This app is cool
Works Really Well
black keys on 8/13/2017
It's surprising how well it works. I love music and I use this app like once a day to grab a song off a commercial or radio or at a bar. I highly recommend it.
Overall, really good
Pretzellogicinbj on 8/13/2017
Hasn't been stumped by a song yet. And I'm into stuff that doesn't seem popular.
C. Alvin on 8/13/2017
Always there and quick when I need it.
The best from the best
LincolnSixEcho21 on 8/13/2017
This is the best app ever. It's super fast and never had any problems to find any song. Not like the other crap apps which think they're famous. Shazam is the best!
Best ever
KeyQu on 8/13/2017
Best app ever!
Love it but
sn-sgu on 8/12/2017
Finally got latest update to load and now it's not working half the time. Before it could identify everything 9 times out a 10, but now I'm lucky if I get 5 or 6. I even tested it with well known music an now nothing- it didn't identify Riders in the Storm! Also in app won't let me send diagnostic report!

DJ Blade Sparx on 8/12/2017
A most useful app when you need to identify a song on the spot. It can even identify remixes. Like SoundHound, it does not have a library of all possible worldwide tracks but it is still a big help.
