Loving the updats, this app is great and so easy to use Having it linked to spotify so i can add songs directly to my playlists without even going into the spotify app is awesome! Also Finds 99% of songs, its great. I dont usually leave reviews but thought this app deserves one. Good job! Full Review

Love the functionality. I've been disappointed today after using the app and the images of the artist aren't correct. Not sure why but it's very disappointing and I will be looking forward to seeing the actual artists image portrayed with the song. SN: totally agree with RioVentura. I miss having the blue button there. The convienence of having the button there to tap was nice. Full Review

I haven't yet identified a single track since downloading it. Sony recommends it highly but it is not replacement of Sony's track ID. U got to improve it, it is must to find it in radio so that I trace music directly from my phone's radio

I used to use shazam years ago and it was perfect. It could find a song over noise and even when the song was low volume. It didn't take too long to get a recording and have the song you want to know. But now it doesn't seem to work. It only recognises the most popular songs and even then you have to try a few times. But what's the point of it if everyone and their grandma already know the only songs this app seems to recognise? I wanted this app to be able to recognise the songs I don't know on the radio and on TV shows but most times it won't work or by the time it would, the song would be over and gone. This is incredibly sad as I know for a fact that shazam used to be so much better than this. Please fix this Full Review

When I first tried Shazam years ago, it was fantastic. It could tell me a song playing over the noise of a restaurant & cafe. These days, I'd say 1/10 songs are recognized. I can find it faster using Google and a line of lyrics. Full Review

The best thing about shazaam was that the lyrics would come up. I don't know what you did, but the layout is different (Which is fine), but lyrics are non existent. What exactly is your purpose, if not to give ALL the info one is expecting when they "shazaam"? Like "Shazaam!" It's there! More like "sha-meh"

Of course it's a great app, but I really wish that they would show the year that the song you looked up was released. I'm always wondering, and it's frustrating that it's not there. Also it should show the album that the song was from. Full Review

Whilst I appreciate the artistic appeal of a recognition screen that morphs into an artist splash page, who was this Graphic Design Major developer that somehow has no idea about the day-to-day functionality of this app and got rid of the blue 's' icon that allows you to Shazam the next song without pressing the back button first to reinitiate the app screen?? Utter update fail. Full Review

Why is the widget button so massive? Should be 1x1 not 2x2. Also hardly recognises anything these days, really sucks. How can you ruin an app so badly? Full Review

This update breaks the lyrics functionality of Shazam in some pretty horrible ways. In the previous version, if there were no lyrics available in Shazam you used to be able to click on it to find lyrics on the web. That functionality is gone. Now, if there are no lyrics within Shazam, there is no lyrics button, period. Also when you press the (very small, difficult to use while driving) lyrics button at the top of the page, it brings up the current line of the lyrics--but it's static, it does not advance--you have to click it again in order to see the rest of the lyrics. This is an unnecessary and redundant click and annoying. Finally, the default action of the lyrics is to enlarge and highlight the current line. This is very annoying if that's not what you want, sometimes I want to read ahead in the lyrics or scroll through the lyrics without constantly having Shazam take control back away from me and highlighting the current line. All in all, the old lyrics system was much better, and finding lyrics so I can understand the song I'm hearing on the radio is the only reason I use Shazam. So this update is really annoying and a giant step backward as far as I'm concerned. Full Review

Why does this app suck at finding songs prior to what I want to find? I literally can't find the name of the songs at all. I can't even find any EDM song that is remixed, and you call this app best at finding songs. Not really the best if I do say so myself. Full Review

Sorry i have to give you 2 ★ only. Most of Korean music is not recognized; The ones that are, are written in hangul characters, meaning most of the people can't read... There's some known, movie tracks and korean pop that are actually written in english but very few... and there's the ads... oh mighty ads... Does not even compare with "Track Id" from Sony, that you forcefully replaced! Full Review

I just got this app so i could know a song that i really like, guess what. The app FORCES you to make an account so you can see the song. And the end, the song got lost so i couldnt see it. Just, no. Full Review

Your Auto-Shazam feature is TERRIBLE!!! Doesn't recognize songs in a mix, let alone songs that play on the radio.... For instance, out of 15 songs, the auto feature recognizes just one song. JUST ONE? Not a troll, just being honest. Full Review

Used to be brilliant, could use it to find out what song was being played in places with a lot of background noise. Now you basically need to hold it up to the speakers and tell everyone within a 100m radius to "shut up" - and even then you'll probably get 3x "no result". How the mighty has fallen.....

Shazam used to work well with videos of YouTube now it sends me straight to Google play which doesn't even work. Videos doesn't even load like it should. If I wanted to listen on Google play I'd open that app first but seems like yourl lost the plot Full Review

I hope you fix this issue of the Shazam app not opening, nor the Shazam widget working. I really like this app, it's usually very helpful, but right now it has a crash bug, where it doesn't open. Could you please fix that? Full Review

Not bad when looking for popular songs. But as soon as you start looking for something a little more "underground", you will start to have a lot of "no results" and you understand this app has its limits Full Review

Used to be essential for identifying songs...now slow and very hit and miss. Nothing to do with Apple's acquisition of Shazam perchance ? Blithely informed me that an Inspiral Carpets track was Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 in A Minor. Mindbogglingly hopeless ! Full Review

App isn't responding. By the time it decides to work, the song you try to find its name, it'd be long gone. All my other apps are running fine but this one takes ages to load, very unresponsive and freezes alot. Full Review

Beat Shazam? Yeah, many others can do that now. The old shazam, the one that worked fine a few months ago, was fast and gave you more info like the year a song was released. Now, the new UI is confusing and doesn't provide much information. Also, it got sooo sloooow recognizing a song to the point that it times out on a clearly sounded song, and it now won't let me interrupt the recording, so it's more prone to interference, affecting even more the search. It's unbearable. I'm considering going back to soundhound. Full Review

Shazam is just a device to make us part with more of our money into the android way of doing business. You Shazam but you can't play the songs unless you pay into Spotify or buy the tracks via Google. It's easier to go home from a night out look at the list of songs you have in here and search them in youTube for free. Shazam is just a listening device with a built in tracker that's linked to Spotify.I don't believe in paying to listen on my mobile. We pay extortionate prices for phone usage to start with. I buy quality phones online. I don't get trapped by over inflated contracts. Full Review

garbage app that couldnt recognize popular songs from the early 2000s (which soundhound could recognize) and often gives me the wrong song. just get soundhound they're better and can actually recognize songs made outside of the mainstream music "circle", your advertising is hillariously unhonest btw Full Review
