Good not Great. Stop making it so hard to like you, Shazam
The app needs some TLC from a human. My sense is that it has spent too long under the hands of techies and over-aspirational leadership. I‘m a tech guy one; but the app would be better for molding by someone who just loves music and wants to snatch a title. I‘m that, too. The problem, after signing up and upgrading, I find it impossible to get back to the Shazam screen to which I am accustomed - You know, The big blue shazam button. Instead I have some incomprehensible screen with settings of undefined/ non-intuitive meaning; links to other apps; blah; blah. Shazam is not an all encompassing social environment. Stop it, Shazam CEO (or Creative Director or whoever is pitching otherwise). If I can‘t figure it out, I have to delete it and figure something else out. I don‘t want to. Please give me back the blue button; make it easy to get music on the drive by again; and you got my 3 bucks a month for life. Deal?
I’ve been using Shazam for over 10 years I barely thought about giving it a review. Not that it really needs it, because many people already know about the app globally. It’s the best app to see what artist/tv/movie/radio is playing! I remembered when I first used it when 3G was barely the next gen with it at these speeds it made it so much better to search for the details without any needs to going the the webpage or anything else it is at your fingertips just one click their is a way to say “Shazam” to start the searching. I am not to sure if it works with everything. Most o the type I find my self just using Siri to do most of my stuff while moving around. It’s a very useful app because you may what to know what movie someone is watching or a friend my want to know without interrupting the movie they can search seamlessly!
Songs while offline
This app is very useful for finding songs you may not know the name of or new songs that you've never heard before. I only have a few problems with this app. When you shazam a song while your offline it says that it'll tell you the song when you have connection. I travel a lot and am a lover of all music genres so I have quite a majority of songs from around the world, and I might not always have wi-fi to connect to. I'm currently abroad for a wedding and my carrier doesn't support data outside of my country, so at the after party they played loads of songs I liked; I went to shazam them and waited till I got back to my hotel to open the app, and there was no sign of them. Another problem I have is Auto-Shazam. I turn it on and when I go listen to a song on a video and it doesn't react. Overall this app is useful, but there are some features that claim to work, but don't.
I absolutely love this app and I keep it on my main screen for easy access. I doesn’t tend to give me any problems. The only issue I have with it, and this is a big issue for me, is that the app icon is far too similar in appearance to FB messenger’s, so I often end up opening the wrong app when I’m frantically trying to Shazam a song before it stops playing. It would be really helpful if Shazam had a very unique and eye-catching icon that can’t be confused with most other apps. And this is just an idea for a feature that would be REALLY cool and useful in the future: if you could hum a melody into Shazam and it would recognize the song by the melody. A lot of times, you’re trying to remember a song that’s not playing, and you can’t remember any lyrics or who the artist was, but you remember the melody. It seems like the technology somewhat exists in those karaoke video games; it’d be really cool to see it utilized here.
Classical and Modern Serious Music.
I absolutely love Shazam. I also love all types of music but especially classical music and especially of the modern genre. I play keyboards and was brought up playing an antique Harmonium (a pedal reed organ) and in a short time became accomplished enough to be the Assistant Organist for a large Presbyterian Church in the Twin City suburb town of Hastings MN. We had a small seven rank but very powerful Pipe Organ which was absolutely a GAS to play full organ even tho I had to sort of wing it on the full 32 note pedal keyboard. Now getting back to my review of Shazam. I think your App comes up short in identifying classical musical tracks and albums. Most serious music lovers prefer to know the Composer first before they know who are the Artists or Artist. I do wish Shazam would provide much more Info on the Classical Music tracks (PLEASE) but thanx a whole lot for what you do do.
I’ve Been Shazam—otized !!!!
This is the bestest app ever PEOPLE! If you want to know the name of a song and artist this is the app you want. It is so accurate and on point. I always keep Shazam open in the background because I love any kind of music that sounds good to me since I don’t have a preference in music my playlist varies and this is how I use it .......when I am listening to the radio and a new song comes on and I have never heard that song....BAAM! I SHAZAM IT RIGHT AWAY!!!! when a car goes by with a good song that I like, or when I go into any business to shop and they’re playing some nice song I immediately SHAZAM IT......I love the fact that I it also finds latin music not only English music and the app is able to find both languages, and even classical music, well the list goes on. I love it and use it basically everyday. ❤️❤️❤️❤️😊
I’ve noticed you are using the release date of that certain song which may not be when it was originally released. I know songs released in 60’s and 70’s have this done when album is reissue. I’m having to look up correct year when making year specific play lists. Also, younger people take that as correct & won’t be argued out of it. Would it be a huge problem to add Originally Released showing that year. Shazam doesn’t always recognize older songs. Just finished watching Ken Burns series Country Music and a there were a lot of artists not recognized at all. It seems to not recognize music that’s not mainstream. I don’t tend too listen to mainstream all the time. Local groups aren’t noticed sometimes either even ef they’ve had a few albums out. Shazam not too bad keeping up with massive amount of music there is today. I just get annoyed sometimes when I can’t find the words to that dang song that’s playing right now!
Whoever created this app purely genius and only for the people who really enjoy music. People can tell you that the Love music, but people who really enjoy music Will tell you how music can change their mood around if they’re happy you can make them sad, if they’re sad or upset you can make them happy. These kind of people, allows the music to get inside her heart and soul those are the true believers of sound of music. Which is a great movie by the way a.k.a.. So thank you , Shazam you’ve allowed me to download music from anywhere I go to the department store, elevator, just listen to the music in your car, I can finally do you know who’s singing that song in actually have it downloaded it onto my Music list. Finally someone who is developed this app understands what I’m saying about music. Blanco
One of My Top 5 Apps
I LOVE THIS APP. I’m always on the hunt for new music and this app helps me do that! I love how I can be out and about, hear a song, hold up my phone, and in less than five seconds I’ve learned what it is. And it can seriously hear the song even if you’re out in a public place and the music isn’t that loud! Let me give you a few examples. I was in a busy chipotle and it gave me the song title. I was in a lens crafter and could barely hear the speaker myself. And there was this song from this short 1 minute video where my friend is talking over the song and all you can hear in the background is the melody but I was like OMG WHAT IS THAT SONG and I thought there was no way the app would be able to get it because the song was so subtle but low and behold it discovered it! DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!
Great app when it works!
This app is literally part of my daily routine so I use it quite a lot. However recently I’ve been noticing when I go to play a song using Apple Music through Shazam the entire app just stops working on my iPhone. So I figured it was just my phone acting up but then I went to use it on my iPad and the exact thing happened when I went to the map and tried playing a song. Also a lot of small things about the user interface will just stop working like the back buttons and scrolling on a page. It’s to the point every time after I Shazam a song and try to either add it to Apple Music or Olay it I have to close the app and restart it. Overall I love the app just wish I could use it a bit longer without having to restart it!
Most Reliable App Ever Made!!
Since day one and what seems like endless apps downloaded since apps were created, Shazam has been that constant, that rock, that reliable friend. This app has been with me throughout the years and hasn’t failed, hasn’t been stuck in some circling mode of hell or crashed. Sure, maybe it’s had some hiccups getting some songs incorrect or versions of certain songs but we all have hiccups! Shazam you have helped me be mom o’ the year and always knowing the song 😉. You didn’t stop there either- you went further with letting me sing along!! It doesn’t get better than this app. Thanks Shazam, we are super cool together! Please stay this way. Add a trivia guessing game and BOOM outta the ballpark. Stay away from bugs. Stay safe. Continue to be awesome!! Love, Mom SHAZAM ROCKS!
The live music lyrics could be better. Like I don’t understand why it hears the lyrics and recognizes if it is an a wrong place and “catches up”, but really, it doesn’t recognize if it’s paused? Can’t even hear any music but it continues as if it does. Pointless feature. And I appreciate that it has lyrics, but some popular songs don’t. They should sync to more than one website for lyrics. The ads aren’t personalized either, and honestly I wish it was. I don’t mind a clothing ad geared towards my interests every now and then, but constantly seeing the same add for AHS Apocalypse while trying to look at lyrics for my worship songs... I keep covering it up with my hands as I read bc I don’t want those kind of frightening images in my head. Being personalized ads, even just variety would be nicer. Don’t want to see the same ad every time I Shazam a song. And auto Shazam doesn’t work that well either
Shazam is a very useful tool, but it does have some issues in this version. For starters, I’d like to modify Notifications Settings… but the link in the app takes me to the front page of Settings and there’s no panel for Shazam available on my new phone. Additionally, when upgrading to a new iPhone I lost access to the ad-free experience I bought into years ago with the since-depreciated Shazam Encore. I’m using the same account as before, but I have ads now… I’ve submitted a ticket and am waiting to hear back. A final complaint would be with Facebook integration. Most apps now show me a page asking to sign in with the Facebook app, which takes me there to authenticate; Shazam, on the other hand, wants me to sign in directly in the app instead of taking me to the Facebook app to do so; this is less secure, sends my data through Shazam for additional lost security, and is just not the way I want to do things. Security and privacy are important in today’s world, and Shazam needs to add simple support for Facebook’s newer secure-authentication system. Other than those issues and occasional minor bugs, Shazam works great. Aside from the emails about the top charts that I can’t seem to turn off in the app for some reason, I enjoy using Shazam and it has proven extremely helpful in identifying music on many occasions.
Reading my mind
Shazam has been around for a long time and throughout its development what’s amazing to me is how it has kept up, not only with contemporaneous music but also music from antiquity. There are other amazing apps for music out there - think radioooo - But Shazam really defines the music discovery app process. I only wish that there could be a one button or step process to acquiring the music easily. I’d happily pay a dollar for every song I’ve Shazammed. If they can figure that out a lot of money will be made and a lot of musicians and music lovers will be happy. Musicians because hopefully they’ll get paid for their efforts and music lovers because they’ll have access to the music that they have discovered with Shazam. Well done and keep up the good work.
Too many changes, too much Greed $$’s
When Shazam app first came out, IT was a fantastic product!! and you could Shazam a song on radio, in a car, on TV... and listen to it “”all”” later & see lyrics, share complete song/video with family & friends.... it was a 5-star App... after it was sold... purchased and changed & compromised by ? Apple ... ? ?new ownership.. the immediate Greed for money appeared and then extra music fees, purchases, memberships tainted this once useful App... greed, yes, greed... absolutely destroyed the once marvelous features and freedom of use and listen to songs, many saved & shared.. & CD’s purchased at retailers... Family & friends tell me they seldom use it since all the changes and restrictions and new, greedy charges imposed/required to ‘checkout a song’. I’d have to say... that’s what killed its once, highly rated popularity... Apple Music and Spotfy biggest issues I hear about...$$$’s Good luck !
