I purchased this app twice and I’m still see ads. I want a refund and you can have your app. I am not a happy customer.

When it works it's like magic. And it works frequently enough to keep this pony happy.
Holy lGhpst on 11/11/2017
I’ve had this since the very beginning and Shazam change my musical appreciation and specifically my great Library thank you for wonderful app.
Wrong genre?
Brucedagr8 on 11/10/2017
I’ve tried Shazam w Broadway and with big bands and jazz. Nada, nichts, ninguno. A real bust.
It will not connect to iTunes music
unsatisfied/thisapp on 11/8/2017
Disappointed with the latest update
ocstarfish on 11/8/2017
I get that Apple Music is awesome but some of us use Amazon music because we have Alexas, a device that Apple has yet to produce. Disappointed that the update took out the option to play songs using Amazon Music. I hope this gets added back in the next update.
Needs better hearing......
Not right, Not right on 11/8/2017
Love when it works. But have to try numerous times for it to get title of what’s playing.
Lot’s of connection issues
Slayheff on 11/5/2017
My phone has a very strong signal and yet the app continually tells me that it is offline. Doesn’t matter if I turn wifi off, restart the app, restart the phone or delete the app and reinstall. It works about 1/2 the time.
Stopped working on iPhone 7 Plus
Sentrec on 11/3/2017
Worked great up until 2-3 months ago then suddenly stopped identifying songs. Tried hard booting my iPhone, reset my iPhone, erased the app, re-installed the app, deleted the free app and paid $2.99 for commercial free app but all to no avail. Contacted customer support but no response... Dumping this app for Spotify or ?
Abrianna Scarborough on 11/3/2017
Best music discovery app like ever
Trosszone on 11/3/2017
A great way to identify, purchase and or stream music very efficiently by one touch audio analysis, also preserves recorded queries for future perusal.
Pooriagb on 11/3/2017
Thats great app😍😍😍😍
Sadly doesn't work for me anymore
T-Rowe on 11/2/2017
Shazam used to work for me flawlessly. Any song anywhere it would identify the song. Now, all I get is no results found. What happened? I can play the song loud and still - no results 9/10 times. Disappointed.

Best app available

Thank you
Love Shazam
Megifog on 10/30/2017
I love Shazam and had it on my watch for months, suddenly one day it disappeared?? I went to the App Store and bought the Shazam Encore, even though I’d already paid for the upgraded version years ago. I've spent days trying to get the app to show up on my watch. I open it in the Watch app but it doesn’t show up within the watch. I’m definitely going to dispute the charge for this. I specifically bought it because it said Encore was compatible with the Apple Watch!
Best app of all time
ArielMaz on 10/30/2017
The sheer breadth of knowledge of this app continues to dazzle me years later and much musical joy given! Thanks!!
Top !

It was perfect, until the updated started
TiredOfBadApps on 10/29/2017
I've had this problem with just a few apps...that I didn't just delete, or with whos developers I am still fighting to have them stop billing me; you get the app (and in this case, pay $4.99), it works great, and you really enjoy using it, or in the case of a navigational app, you depend on it. Then, the update notices start. And it sounds all good to you, so update. Right now this app has been in some state of suspended, useless limbo. The message states that "even though you have paid for this app," it cannot be updated unless you connect to your computer, open iTunes or whatever, Blah, Blah, Blah. I am no where near my Mac. Is this developed for a Mac computer, or for an iPhone? I must have been mistaken, because I thought it was the latter. Screw your poorly designed improvements, and give me back the original app. Too many app developers are travelling this road. It's highley problematic. Only a cell phone company could screw up a Mac product, and really, Mac, get a tighter reign on this kind of thing. You don't look open and innovative, you look stupid and out of control.
Luv luv luv it❣️
Gotbrainfog on 10/29/2017
I love music. Sometimes I want to know more about a song. Shazam is so full of info, lyrics, artist history, other albums, videos, similar music,... AND I can easily add songs to playlist on SPOTIFY
ClawsC3 on 10/28/2017
Always there when you want it to remind you who sings things you forgot.
When I hear something I don't recognize
Moody rebel 66 on 10/28/2017
Just Shazam it. It's quick and easy. And it's linked to Spotify. Bonus.
Love it!
Carrs1001 on 10/28/2017
Shazaam is great. I don't think it'd ever not known a song for me!
Totally in tune!!
the1000th1 on 10/28/2017
Great app and look! Keep up the good work!!
One of a kind app
combos on 10/27/2017
Been using Shazam almost daily for darn near a decade. Thank you!
I love it
tuneloonn on 10/26/2017
It does everything its supposed to , to make me satisfied
What could be better?
dlharvey08 on 10/26/2017
I hit the button and Shazam tells me what the title is of the song is that’s speaking to my soul.... so I can relive that moment again. If everything in life was so simple.
What did we do before Shazam?
Haikujo1 on 10/25/2017
...Fight about whether Tin Man was a Neil Young song or the group America ...or whether the title of the song was OZ. It is my go to debate dissolving, "what album should I listen to all the way through?", "what do I need to download?" app. I barely know what we did before. Oh, I know! Badger the guys at the record store with off key renditions of half sung song hooks...Record stores--ah, nostalgia!

NOT WORKING ON APPLE WATCH SERIES 1 since latest update for iOS 11 and watch iOS 4
AshleyDelavane on 10/22/2017
Says ‘will tap you later when find a match’. Fine on iPhone 7s plus. Did all reboots and reinstalls on both devices- even re-paired the watch. . Still the same. Wife has regular Shazam and same problem after latest Shazam update to 11.4.1. Using watch iOS 4, iOS 11.0.3.
Actually Good
Stache Adams on 10/22/2017

Deepml on 10/22/2017
I am using this app from the app released and worked really great but now it’s showing wrong songs and too many advertisements.

This is one of my favorite apps. I use it in the car, stores and television. I really like how it give you likes to just about everything concerning the band. Very cool.
Not as good as it used to be
Knighttshadow on 10/19/2017
Doesn’t always work on my iPhone 7 especially when plugged in to my new 2018 Toyota Camry. Doesn’t pick up sound / song have to discount when plugged in car. When not plugged in even with WiFi it takes 2-3 tries before it finds the song. Not as good as it used to be.
