Customer Reviews

Its a hit and miss for now.

- Missing unified version that has been prophesized. Stuff on phone doesnt sync with mac, very bad idea.
- Hit and miss when detecting songs. I have better luck turning speakers on and letting the mobile app listen in. Its the same engine so I dont understand whats going on.

I’d hate to request more features while basic app functionality is missing but it could use a preview to play 30sec version when I hit album art on already shazamed songs.

Works - But Clunky

I got this to work after a minute of waiting or so But….all it does is tell you what song is playing (which any app that monitors iTunes can do. But, the big deal for me with Shazam is that for iOS, it allows you see dynamic lyrics in the app. Here, for the Mac version, it links you to their website which will show the lyrics. Not the same thing, and rather pointless.

Absolute Trash

App is slow and has a difficult time picking up any detection of any song. This should be fast and reliable and its the complete opposite. ios app is a lot better. Expect better. Should be able to click the shazam logo to turn it on and let it detect music that way instead of turning it off/on with the 5 hour clock running for no reason. Should be able to delete previously streamed songs. All around mess! You guys need new Mac devs to recode this app from top to bottom.
