Pls broaden the variety of less popular music searches

First off I want to say We love what this apps ability is suppose to do and does for most popular songs but ....The only thing I have to complain about is that it’s actually kind of slow finding the song or doesn’t find the song at all for what we listen to. And that just defeats the point of having this awesome app. there is not enough knowledge on underground music only mainstream really or what’s popular on the radio. Very few songs we listen to. I mean if it’s popular you normally know the songs name but this app is suppose to help identify songs you don’t know or are rare and it does NOT do that! Pls update for all music genres underground please! Or less popular music groups. This app has failed me so many because of this! Examples are twiztid, amb, everlast, icp, chance the rapper, boondox, action Bronson, 6lack, caskey, merkules, phora these are just a few off the top of my head. Other than these two problems the app is great but that dropped a star for each issue we have with this app which is very fair to us. If this was fixed it would be 5 Star all the way but unfortunately it is only worthy of a 3 Star at the moment.

Apple made it worse

Shazam was one of the most inventive and useful apps ever created. I’ve been using it since the beginning. For many years it was rumored that Apple would buy Shazam - usually a good thing. Apple tends to make software better after they buyer it (well except for all the professional applications they discontinued after purchasing so they could use pieces of their technology in other, non professional, consumer applications/apps).

In this case, Apple made it much harder to link to and buy songs in the iTunes music store. Instead they want to force you to use Apple Music which I have no need for at all with my very large collection of music I already own. Unfortunately, I’m going to switch to another competitor app, which I hate to do. I’m a huge Apple fan, but this app doesn’t work for me any longer. Fortunately, there’s not many songs I like that I don’t already own, so it won’t be that big an inconvenience in my case. These company’s just don’t want you to own anything anymore, they want that consistent monthly income from you renting everything. I hate revolving dept.

It is the technology I have been waiting for since 1990...

There have been songs that truly have been ingrained in my life since 91' where I never knew who the hell was the artist or song. On a tv show, a random commercial, etc. that have slipped through my fingers and traveled onward into the dark distance. I never caught the artist or the song. And I would sing these songs carving down the mountain or riding a wave internally for all this time.. When Shazam came out it literally changed my life on this earth. I finally have found what I have been searching for. You Shazam have found what I have been searching for. Now I use it anytime I feel moved in hearing a song at a store, a party, a commercial, a Movie. It has made me a better person. We are finally entering an age where the shadow of the sun is no longer. I beckon the suns musicals waves with the power of Shazam! Thank you my friend! You are a beautiful creation.
