Keeps getting worse!!!
This used to be a great app but now it won't even work most of the time. The last time I tried to use it I kept getting the "offline" message on wifi so I switched to cellular and tried again; even with me holding my phone right next to my stereo speaker it couldn't manage to identify a song (multiple attempts). This app was great when all it did was identify songs. I don't give a crap about all the "social" features, like what some celebrity is shazaming! Who cares!!! I paid for this app so I don't have to see ads but all of the extra "features" they keep shoving down my throat are just as annoying as ads, especially when they hog up most of the home screen. Maybe the app would actually do what it's supposed to if it wasn't so bloated (it might actually load fast enough to tag a song before it ends too)! Another thing that's been annoying me for awhile now is the app no longer identifies songs on TV shows; it just tells you what show you're watching. I've been using Soundhound as an alternative, hoping the devs will eventually get a clue and fix this app, but it's not looking like that's going to happen. I'll probably end up deleting it once I get all my old tagged songs.
Good but some bugs
I was finally able to get this app since I got an iPod touch 6th generation a month ago, and I must say it's a really great app to use if you want to know what song's playing right away if you're connected to Wi-Fi. And you can even Shazam music offline, because when you connect to Wi-Fi after, it identifies the music that it's recorded with your device's microphone. I use this app if I wonder what song's playing on the radio or in public.
My only complaints are that you can't turn off automatic following of artists you haven't followed yet on the app after you Shazam their music, which I would appreciate it if you could turn them off. And also, there's another bug where after I Shazam something while offline, when I reconnect there are duplicates of what I Shazamed. And when I try to delete the duplicate, it deletes both of them. This became a problem for me a while ago and I've been forced to leave the duplicates alone. I would appreciate if that was fixed.
Not what it used to be
This used to be a well thought out, very helpful app. Now there's so much other junk built into it that it takes entirely too long to load, and then seems to assault you with ads, before, during, and after you attempt to identify a song. Why did I pay for this app if it's so heavily ad supported? I remember when Shazam was able to identify artists playing a set on a late night show and even knew the show (e.g. Adele on The Tonight Show). The last three times I've tried it that functionality seems to be shot. I used to be an advocate for this app's advantages, now I'll likely move to another app for these purposes.
