The app is excellent but...

The app is excellent but since the latest updates, I can’t see anymore the release year of any song. Or maybe it’s still somewhere but I can’t find it. Anyway, if you removed this feature, is it possible to bring it back? For me, and I think for others as well, the release year has its importance when finding about a new song.

And still, surprisingly, there is one song from my father’s old cassettes that Shazam didn’t recognize it. Maybe the music servers need one extra song there :)

Been using it for a long time

I started using Shazam when I got my first IPhone, years ago, and I love it!
I couldn’t give it 5 stars because it doesn’t know all the songs (I mainly listen to electronic noncomercial music) and also when I started it takes a while until I can tap it to start the listening, so it would be great if the developers could make it listen to a song the second to type on it’s icon on the phone screen.
To conclude, I recommend Shazam to any music lover!

Needs some little tweeks

I would love two more things:
1. A button for a new search when viewing a song you found, it’s quicker than having to go back to the home page.
2. The ability to ad a song to the data base to be analyzed and others be able to find it.
