Ratings and Reviews

Very disappointing

Eternal Optimist 1971

I really expected better of the official MacOSX of Shazam. The core "On Demand” feature is not available, and the only time this app really works identifying titles is when I’m playing music I ALREADY OWN!!!

I now just use the Bluestacks Andoroid Emulator on my iMac. Does what I want, when I want.

Causes bluetooth interference!


Unfortunately I had to delete this app, because it caused interference with my bluetooth audio devices. (Made static Noises) Wasted an hour on the phone with apple customer service to help me found out what was causing this interference on my brand new MacBook Pro 2018.

Uses too much cpu capacity


I see a HUGE, HUGE difference in my CPU performance after I deleted this trash app (Yeah, not just a small difference.) Shazam was taking up almost 70% usage of my CPU, and not only that, but also it increased my CPU temperature by up to 25º C. This app is a total nonsense.
