Great app!

Smiths SCoast

Before I found Shazam, figuring out what song on the radio was difficult. I’d have to catch a certain phrase on the song and then research it. However, Shazam listens to the song and then gives the actual song with who wrote it and what album it’s in. The part I like is that it tracks where you’re currently up on the song and gives you current lyrics. Sometimes the current lyric line is a bit behind of the actual song, but besides that it’s a cool feature. Another thing I like is how you can add it into an album in Apple Music, making that song you like on the radio onto your phone. Nothing needs to be changed on this app as it is great. Well done app developers

Great tool with frustrating aspects


The basic concept of Shazam is wonderful - let it listen to the music and it will tell the name of the song and the recording artist.
It will then provide a variety of means to purchase the song or album through one of its affiliated music sellers.
The frustration for me is that, most of my usage is when listening to non-pop music. In those arenas the name of the composer is paramount - more important than the performer, conductor, orchestra etc. Sadly Shazam is not cable of providing that information.
It’s all pop culture to Shazam.

Great and useful


Great to see tools like Shazam constantly improving and keeping up with the trends. Love this app and its ability to record listened songs. No other like this. Simple and powerful. Please keep it useful and light.

Please also allow us to share Shazam songs with others directly from the list. I realised I cannot do that.
