Keg great app on 7/17/2017
Always accurate and provides you the easy of purchasing a song from any of 4 music providing services (ex. iTunes, Google, etc). So glad to have an app to help me figure out who sings a song AND I no longer need to call radio stations for the info. Well done!
Angel Levario on 7/15/2017
This app is everything
GT51389 on 7/15/2017
Used to like it but these days it never gets a single song right. Wrong artist constantly. Always wrong. And I paid $6 for this couple years back. Disappointed.
Love it!!!
ElbeeNord on 7/13/2017
Love this... so helpful some I can never remember song names.
Geoman200 on 7/5/2017
Amazing app, didn't really know what to expect, maybe an app that lagged and wasn't that accurate. Nope, this app does what it says. And more, even does movie scores too. Really surprised me and blew my mind. Wow.
Almost Never Works
VNB-CAB on 7/4/2017
First version rarely missed a beat, but newest rarely works. Too bad, because it was fun to use in the past; now not so much
Excellent App
itunes.johernandez on 7/4/2017
Very fast and accordingly as expected.
Great utility
SPM.0773 on 7/4/2017
I never miss a song's name
Nick jiggly on 7/3/2017
Very fast and correct songs and very high quality
Downhill man
Reds13 on 6/26/2017
Why is it they get rid of the basics in an upgrade? Now you can't listen to the song to check right after you grab it. Lame.
Chakrapink on 6/25/2017
Comes through all the time! Love it 100%
Great app
Spyderinlv on 6/24/2017
Use it all the time I don't know a song
eyeClaudius on 6/22/2017
I work in the electronic music industry. Finally this app is able to capture more of the underground music now more than ever before. And with speed. Excellent improvement!
A life saver
Julianintulsa on 6/17/2017
I live for music, now I never miss a song to add to my ever growing collection
Faster than SoundHound
jhonsun on 6/16/2017
I like SoundHound a lot and it was my main tool for a long time, but the price dropped on Shazam and I bought it. Comparing the two, Shazam is waaaaay faster picking up the song. 10x faster. Not an exaggeration.
Used to be 4 stars but hey got rid of auto Shazam
chareymongo on 6/15/2017
Where is my auto Shazam?! That last update popped my balloon.
Great app
Tiff24fr on 6/12/2017
Awesome, does exactly what it is supposed to do. I just don't like all the notifications about songs that people are listening to in my area. I do love the app, always comes in hand.
Peachie 8 on 6/10/2017
This is an amazzing app!! If I don't know an artist or a song- it most of the time tells me! Glad I paid!!!
Falling behind SoundHound
ORHobbes on 6/2/2017
Shazam is great, but it really needs to add the ability to search for lyrics or hum a song in your head like Sound Hound does. But Shazam is limited to only letting you identify songs you are actually listening to, not a song in your head. So SoundHound is WAY ahead in that area. And Shazam really struggles with identifying live performances of songs at concerts or on TV. 50% of the time it has no idea, and the other 50% it returns the wrong version of the song. Sound Hound nails it almost every time. Lastly, if you connect it with your music streaming service, Shazam ads every song you identify to your library. But many songs I identify I do not want in my library. So I have to go manually remove them. And Shazam had no option to pick and choose. But Soundhound lets you choose if you want every song added or just add the ones you select. That's a far better option.
LordHappenstance on 5/31/2017
Must have app for any music lover!
Quick response from developers
Filip Maksimovic on 5/30/2017
Great app overall, I love the feature when it connect to Apple Music and automatically add song to my library
Still getting ADs (fixed) Great App!
rwuh89 on 5/29/2017
They fixed it and I'm no longer seeing ADs! I also got notified. Great app and awesome customer service!
Stop Adding to Apple Music
DanInNC on 5/29/2017
This used to not be a problem, but I hate that Shazam adds every song you ID to your Apple Music library. Sometimes I just want to ID the song to know what it is. That doesn't mean I want it in my library. I'll add the ones I want, thank you. Sure you can disconnect Apple Music from Shazam, but then you can't listen to samples to confirm it's the correct song. I've tried tapping the little gear and choosing Previews but it doesn't actually change anything. Give me an option to add songs to my library on a case by case basis and you'll get your 5 stars back.
Even paid version has adds now
onuco on 5/28/2017
I have paid for this application when it costed almost $7. With the latest upgrade I started getting ads. Even though I have the encore version. I don't care about Pepsi or Encore. This is completely unacceptable. Switching back to SoundHound. Update: they reversed the ads and now they are not showing anymore.
Great app
Ruviolets on 5/28/2017
Best app ever
Great app
Safed on 5/28/2017
Works great
Breach of contract
b11spp on 5/28/2017
This version of the app has been specifically marketed and sold as being ad free. Ads are creeping in and this changes everything. Not cool to see my Facebook app and my account used upon opening it. Very disappointed. This has to stop!
Guillermo S. on 5/27/2017
Seriously? Ads? After I willingly paid to get rid of them. This is a joke.

Was nice when this didn't have ads, not so much anymore...

ShadyK-Dub on 5/27/2017
Most used app I have.......
Paid and still "Sponsored" Ads
DoogieATX on 5/27/2017
I had Shazam (RED) and loved, but now it just crashes since they are no longer updating the app. I purchased the Encore version for no ads and yet there is still annoying banner ads. What a rip off. Want my money back.
Adds in paid app
desoare on 5/27/2017
Lies!! Still annoying ads!!
justingenius1 on 5/26/2017
I purchased the Encore version specifically to get rid of that annoying banner ad with Jamie Foxx. I had already paid to have ads removed in the regular version of the Shazam app, and I tried "restoring" my purchase to no avail. I feel like I've been totally ripped off and want my money back. 😡
Works, except for one small bug
ChadB on 5/26/2017
I'm one of the very few people that have an apple car play enabled stereo in my car. If I have my phone plugged in to the stereo (even if just to charge) and have the radio playing, Shazam continually tries to match a song and eventually times out and says a match could not be found. I then have to unplug my phone and Shazam matches in seconds. I know it's a small bug, but please fix!
Angus0510 on 5/25/2017
Very nice
Perfect in every way.
haloluke117 on 5/24/2017
This app accomplices every music lovers dream of finding the name of that new song you just heard. I've used the app for more than three years. And I loved it then and I love it now. I would strongly recommend. 10/10
Good stuff😎
Tayricho on 5/23/2017
Edited: Not long after I complained about the login issue, the development team quickly fixed it, which is pretty awesome! I like the app along with the new update! Maybe adding a humming function in Shazam? If this feature comes in with next updates, I'd be glad :) ------------------------------------------ Huge update! Huge disappointment! Can't sign in my account. Confirmation email link opened in safari always said address is invalid!!! OMG! Fix it!!! Don't buy this encore version until they fix it!!!
Gorgeous new design!
Lakerfan8224 on 5/20/2017
I'm a huge fan of the new design! It's so much cleaner! Please never change it! Or at least not for a long time!
Great app!
Vondrake brown on 5/20/2017
I love it
Login issues
DrkS1th on 5/19/2017
Please fix the login issues
Loboelduro on 5/18/2017
Love the new update
Doesn't Work
Sam201303ab on 5/18/2017
Since the new update the app won't recognize songs anymore. Very disappointing.
Shazam Encore Review- 5/17/17
Nicholas Hilby on 5/17/2017
Please fix the crashes. The app will not open when trying to connect with Facebook. How am I supposed to log in with my Facebook account if it keeps crashing ?! Everything else is fine it's just impossible to sign in cuz it crashes.
No recognition anymore
dixiehere on 5/16/2017
Just doesn't recognize songs anymore......
Zach Armstrong on 5/16/2017
You're an egg, Shazam.
pstlmt on 5/15/2017
I got the Shazam app back when it first came out and it worked so much better.Now it takes several attempts before it recognizes songs and sometimes doesn't at all. I also lost all my tags I had from 2010 when I got the new iPhone 7 Plus. Disappointed Shazam is not as good as it use to be.
Do not like the new update.
redsoxboii445 on 5/15/2017
Can't find anything I used before.
No longer has info on artists.
fall7612 on 5/13/2017
User interface better but no longer has biographies on artists.
LAX20531 on 5/13/2017
How was I supposed to know "auto Shazam" now requires a long-press of the button instead of the former simple toggle?? I was all but certain it was gone until I read the change log entirely by chance. You do realize that many users allow iPhone to auto update their apps and don't read the chance log, right?
