Review from Emma Olmstead
Love I love this app, way better than soundhound. My little sister is always asking the names of songs/artists in the car and we used to write down lyrics to look up when we got home, but now we don't have to worry about that! Also, I love how it's able to recognize when it's the Glee version (:
I would rather it took longer to identify a song and get it right than attempt to identify it in under a second and regularly get it wrong. It just gets a lot wrong and has no option to report an incorrect match so it won't get better. For real mainstream music it's great otherwise, Meh.
I Shazamed the same song 5 times and it gave me 5 different results, I then went and played those 5 results and tried to Shazam the, each time a different result... This app has gone a bit downhill.
Most recent update has ruined this app. I don't want to auto shazam, I just want it to "listen" for more than 1 second before fizzing out. Seriously. Why mess with something that wasn't broken? So disappointed
The app is great, but it is annoying as heck that literally EVERY TIME the App updates or Android updates, Shazam makes me completely re-validate (get the email, click the link, Etc. Etc. Etc.) . This is the only app giving me this issue. PLEASE fix whatever is causing this problem!
I used to love this app, using it almost everywhere now... But since the new updates, its pretty much useless now... The tracks are rarely identified... and even the popular tracks are hard to identify if there are other noises in the background... Great job guys... way to ruin a perfectly good app...
It's fine but I was forced to give up the Track ID app from Sony and that's something I didn't really like. Most of the time it finds the song you are listening to but there have been a handful of times it didn't identify the song no matter how many times I tried...
Running low on storage space? Great news: Shazam went on a diet, and we're almost 10MB lighter!
Do you know about Auto Shazam? When you long-press the Shazam button on the home screen, you can trigger Auto Shazam - which automatically identifies the music playing around you without the need to tap every time you hear a song. You'll know instantly what's playing by looking at your notifications.
