Okay, so I may not be musically talented, but I’m definitely a huge music fan. I’m always down to listen to new music. No matter where I am, when I hear a good song over the radio or in a store, I Shazam it and it helps me identify it. It’s so much easier than using Siri or Googling lyrics. And every now and then, I’ll use the app to try and understand a song’s lyrics. However, my only issue with the app is the format. I don’t know what it is about it, but it’s slightly confusing and obnoxious. I never use the discover page in the app for this reason. Although, I’m not sure I would use it even if the layout was better. And for those of you who are complaining about the app not recognizing songs, I don’t think it’s because the app doesn’t know it. I just think you are simply doing it wrong. I had that issue at first. The app best identifies songs when you open it and wait a few seconds before “Shazaming” a song.

Wham Bham Shazam

I’ve used Shazam since I got my first iPhone back in 2011. Overall, it’s been super helpful, especially when I’m in a store or somewhere that I can’t just ask what song is playing. However, I’ve been frustrated with the app the past several times I’ve used it.

First off, the app was slow to launch. Secondly, once I pressed the Shazam button it was then slow to figure out what the song was. In several instances the song ended before the app even started Shazam-ing. That was super annoying, but I just figured out how to set it to start Shazam-ing upon launching. Hopefully will fix the problem. (And hopefully it’s not just that my iPhone 6 is just senile.)

Another feature that I just discovered for myself is the ability to connect Shazam to my Apple Music app! It even adds a playlist of all my Shazam-ed songs. Since I subscribe to Apple Music I can listen to them immediately and whenever I want.

Shazaman! Searchin!

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!
