Customer Reviews

A valiant effort

It’s clear from the simplicity, clean interface, and easy usability that you put good effort into this. It’s great. Well. Almost. Just when I check my battery usage, one application is using the most power: Shazam!

You should be running with little or no energy expended. But no! So now I can’t leave this going in the background (it IS really draining my mid-2014 Macbook Pro’s battery). Please try again, guys.

But it works otherwise.

Needs lots of improvements!

The only reason I wanted to download this app was to be able to see all of the songs I have shazamed on my phone so that I could easily click on the songs to add them through  Apple Music to my iTunes Library. Other than that issue, the app is pretty good for it’s main purpose which is song recognition.

Please make this app be able to sync with your account and I’ll consider downloading again.


Was streaming some music and it picked up 80% of them on my desktop iMac. Clicked on the Shazam icon, opened iTunes and made a few music purchases.

Very cool.

This is an awesome free app.
