Customer Reviews

Not the same...

I used shazam for over 2 years and it used to be great and it'd be spot on with results even if it was other noises in the background. Now however even if there is people talking or any type of noise it won't be able to detect what the title of the song is for example during a TV commercial, plus it's not fast enough to recognize the song name a commercial would be over and it'll still be trying to find out what the title is for that song. Used to be great however it'll frustrate me more then not now it'll give me the wrong title of a song I'm trying to find and I'm better off looking up the name of songs on the internet then to use this app. I used to swear by shazam but idk what happened...if it ain't broken you shouldn't have fixed it, because now it's broken...

Was great once upon a time

Shazam was one of the apps to have in iOS but what was once a great music recognition app has deteriorated into a watered down version of what is called Shazam Encore now. If you subscribed to the app early on in '08 it would be free with lifetime updates but if you changed phones they don't recognize your account despite being stored in iCloud so you have to purchase it again.
To recap, the good app is now Shazam Encore while the latest version of the free "regular" Shazam crashes when you're operating an older iOS before 8.0 - It is buggy, doesn't let you recognize music of many labels like Polygram, Nonesuch and Fantasy, it has big holes in international music and classics. Its sampling rate seems to be a lot lower with plenty of errors or outright wrong results. Avoid this one.

Used to Love it ;(

This app was great a few years ago. I was excited when they added TV. However, before it could detect low volume music in a loud bar but now there practically has to be silence. Also, it does not recognize music you Shazam during a TV show. It only picks up that it's a show. And now it also is so slow to open up that a lot of the time the song you want to Shazam is over. I already have a guide on my TV to tell me what I'm watching. I don't need to Shazam a TV show. It's music that most people are interested in because most of the time it's never credited ;(
