Follows artists I don’t like.
CapriciousWhim on 2/16/2018
If you Shazam a song sometimes you just want to know what it is. Doesn’t mean you like it, want to add it to a stream, or want to follow the artist. Very disappointed there appears to be no options to turn off auto add and auto follow.
App freezes continuously
🐼ㄗ丹れ刀丹 on 2/15/2018
Even after the new update the app stiill freezes. App tags music in south farce iTunes store, i don't know wether that is because im in south africa but I have a US iTunes account.
Shazam is your Playlist’s BFF!!!
Froggy0375 on 2/14/2018
Thanks to Shazam, my music library has grown considerably. And I love the feature to have the songs automatically added to Apple Music!!!!
Love it!
Rittgarnk on 2/14/2018
I have never had a problem with this app. I love that is saves my music so I can buy it later.
Works like a charm every time
MarkNance on 2/12/2018
Connects to Spotify or Apple Music easily. Also allows you to listen to tracks in Deezer. Find tracks I want to know about and ads them to my Spotify playlist with ease. Works great. I consider it a really good app should you choose to get it. Blessings!
MÅŚTĘRQICKK on 2/10/2018
Helpful and convenient! Especially when you don’t know the name of the artist

Great App can’t go Wrong
Apple Music
DeathGun25 on 2/8/2018
No me aparece el enlace con Apple Music una vez reconoce la canción. En mi iPad funciona lo más bien y aparece como está en la fotos review pero en mi iPhone 7 Plus no aparece.
Songs, Info and Fun
Martaylin on 2/6/2018
Shazam can tell me everything about a song it hears. I have found so many new artists because of the app. I love it!
What invetion!!!!
Sjimenez10 on 2/6/2018
What a invetion!!
Liked better before last update
Lilli's Gma on 2/5/2018
Gave it a lowe review bc it’s slower and now it’s worse. Nice. You have my money so what do you care? smh
Very disappointed
Barkeller on 2/5/2018
For my first experience I played 2 well known songs on the piano and Shazam mis-identified each one and then they loaded up my play list with songs I didn’t want. How bad is that!
Horrible performance, rarely works
SuperShoeDiva on 2/4/2018
The performance on this app is horribly slow. If there’s a song you want to identify you better hope it just started because it will take the length of the song to load this app and then 99% of the time the app won’t recognize the song! Don’t waste your money on this dog!
Spyrdog on 2/3/2018
I wait now like a hunter with a bow, for that pesky song to pop up so I can Shazam it
soul cycle on 2/3/2018
Love Love Love forever
Great app
RuDog on 2/3/2018
I’ve always loved this app.
I love it
tuneloonn on 2/2/2018
It does everything its supposed to , to make me satisfied
OMG this app
diney1967 on 2/1/2018
When I’m not sure of the name of a song Shazam got my back, love this app
Running/listening in background on 1/28/2018
After closing the app when I come back to my phone the red bar at the top shows that Shazam is still listening in the background. I used to be able to disable this by turning off auto-Shazam, but the setting for this is now missing. I'm going to uninstall for now.
I don't like the nickname part on 1/28/2018
And very easy. Useful for finding the songs I want to purchase
Spotify support still missing
sslnn on 1/28/2018
Banner is there, it connects with Spotify and the.....still nothing. Now that they’ve sold out to Apple I fear it will never come and it’s just a competition abuse.
App problem
Jimbo32984 on 1/28/2018
This was a great app. As of recently when I hit play all to play songs that I’ve shazamed once my phone locks or I exit the app to do something else the app freezes and the music stops. Hoping they can fix this issue. Idk if anyone else has the same problem. Has been happening. For a few weeks now.
Shazam Red
Pixelpusher636 on 1/26/2018
Love that app. Hate that buying the RED version in the past rewarded me with an unusable app in iOS 11. No update, no response from Dev.(s)
I love it
fatz4 on 1/25/2018
One of the best apps ever created! Amazing
Parsiii on 1/24/2018

Nice and clear able to find all the misc I like
Love the fact I can find music easily.
sandijackson1 on 1/23/2018
Wish it app would load faster. Seems to take a while to load. I’ve missed a couple of songs waiting for the app to open. Other than that it’s fantastic!
Humming and concerts are it's weakness
ORHobbes on 1/23/2018
This is obviously a great doing detection service. There are just two shortcomings... 1) It cannot detect songs by humming the way that SoundHound can. That's a huge problem when you have a song in your head but don't know many of the words. If SoundHound can identify the song from just humming it, then why can't Shazam? 2) It struggles identifying songs when you are at a live concert, whereas SoundHound seems to always figure the song out. Again, a huge weakness compared to their competitor. Shazam has other advantages such as camera scanning, but the humming and concert features would be far more useful. Hopefully now that Apple owns Shazam, they have the resources available to fix these two shortcomings in doing detection.
Love it
phoenixseangels on 1/22/2018
Love it, big help sorting out my music!
Best app ever
scot333 on 1/22/2018
I used to record songs of the radio to tape bake in the late 80s and early 90s. I've recently re listened and Shazam'd all those forgotten songs that made my childhood.
It was once great...
poorinparis on 1/21/2018
...but now it’s so burdened by promotion that it’s not ready to sample a song until it’s too late.
Just Amazing
Bball Martin on 1/21/2018
This App has to be the best App ever created. Just amazing for music lovers. Love he link with Apple Music!

MYOB_2012 on 1/21/2018
The technology is amazing. Such a useful method of building my audio library. Just love it!

Crashes when trying to view My Shazam
lugia222 on 1/19/2018
Shazam has crashed when trying to view My Shazam for years. I’ve sent their customer service team emails about it multiple times and have never heard back. Pretty disappointing.
Best app ever!
