    When I use internet to find the title and artist of a song, the result comes in literally SECONDS! Very satisfied with the app. Especially because, unfortunately, radio stations like 96.1 and 104.1, no longer announce the title and artist, at the end of every song

    I've had Shazam for about 5 years. Each phone I get (which isn't many) I instantly download this app and put a widget of it on my home screen. Never had any issues. I love that it has the option for most songs to view the lyrics. It gives details on the artist and the option to go back to the list of songs you "shazamed". One of my favorite tools on my phone! You may get a "No result" but it's not often.

    I love this app. My personal music library has grown exponentially because even if I hear an ad or commercial on social media..I can capture it and save it. I just need to figure out how I can keep it on the screen at all times if needed. I've been able to overlap it onto other apps, but if i have to remove it i have a hard time getting it to overlay.

    This app is one of humanity's finest achievements. Figure out any song that's playing! It's not always correct, nor does it know every song in existence, but I'll be damned if it's not close to it. I've had Shazam fail to recognize a track at a concert, then a week later got hit with a notification that it figured it out correctly. Shazam is the best

    When the name of that song or the artist is right on the tip of your tongue, but just won't fully manifest and you know it will be bothering you all night, Shazam keeps us sane. 😂 This was one of the first apps I ever downloaded, and I've added it to every phones since. It's also perfect for when you hear an old song and there's one line in it that you always wondered what they were saying, as Shazam supplies lyrics for most songs, as well as information on the song, artist and album, and more.

    Don't install the latest update, it's a bigger banner ad for Apple Music. It's a pretty good app if you have fairly commonplace musical encounters. But it's terrible with instrumentals; I could stand by a composition and Shazam it five times and get five totally different guesses, and I could keep doing it ad infinitum. I tried using the app to see if a busker was faking the violin and the results were inconclusive because I already know the app doesn't work well with instrumentals!

    Works well most of the time, but often enough I get "No Results". I wish it was possible to type in the answer to teach your database, because I usually find it elsewhere (like rewinding the podcast or asking someone). There's also no way to send feedback through the app, so I'm writing it here for all. (Maybe I could if I sign up, but I don't want to.)

    It's a good app but when using the little bubble across apps it starts to get annoying. While listening for the long it will say "saved Shazam's" instead of telling me the songs or it actually doesn't save them to the library at all. Very strange pls fix , thanks. Edit. Most of the songs found I can't just open it in Spotify through Shazam I have to manually search for it in Spotify

    This app is essential if you're the type of person who's got your ears open for music everywhere you go. You might find yourself walking past a shop with it's doors open and catch the last 10 seconds of a song on a person's rich and storied playlist. This app retrieves the song title in a matter of seconds 90% of the time. Gone are the days of waiting until the end credits of a movie to see who's singing that weird nuanced cover of a classic.

    This app have got to be one of the best tools ever invented. To be able to get the title of a song from the melody and/or it's vocals is so helpful. It is very user friendly and stores all of your 'shazamed' items. It also gives you options to enjoy your 'shazamed' items via other linked apps. The app is also updated on a regular bases.

    I used to love Shazam, but since becoming Apple Music, finding a song outside of those widely known is almost impossible. When it does finally find a song, now lyrics cant be viewed, nor can we even hear a sample of any song without a subscription!! I shouldn't be forced to subscribe & PAY for anything to get just basic information. If wanting to listen at anytime, on or offline, I could understand paying. Also, now only have 500 characters to express any issues for others to see. Ridiculous!!!!

    This used to be a great app to sing along any song, but it seems that the lost perspective, only making the app less user-friendly, for instance before you were able just to swipe your finger from anywhere in the screen to the right to see the artist lyrics, info, videos. Now, to access the lyrics, you have to click a little link on the far top right corner, almost like preventing you from reaching out to it. Shame on the developers.

    App worked great for years, opened it today and they've removed the lyrics tab. No idea why, was really the only thing I used it for, so it's basically useless now. Annoyingly it keeps prompting me to play a preview of the song I'm already listening to? Like you just identified the song because you could hear it, but instead of giving me useful info like the lyrics, you want me to play 20 second preview. K.

    BS app decides not to work all the time. Even when closing out the application and and reopening, clearing cache or anything. Tried to delete and reinstall to get it to work nothing has it functioning. Even worse the times it did work the library of music has been wiped clean so now I don't even have the list of songs I had at one time. Extremely frustrating and disappointing.

    Out of all the apps in all the app stores, this is the one I use/love the most. I've never had it crash on me or slow down my processing speed, and it doesn't take too long to open, so I rarely miss a song I'm trying to get, and it only needs to "hear" like a second or two to buzz in with the info. Plus, only two of the 177 things I've shazamed have been unidentifiable. That's a helluva track rate, imo.

    Where has this app been all my life?!? I've had an unfortunate knack of listening to radio stations that play an eclectic mix of everything, but never give any information on the music they play. Then there's TV shows, movies, trailers, even freakin' commercials. No more fighting with Tunefind or Google (love both, but this is So much faster!). One tap, and there's the info. LOVE IT!!!

    Best app I've ever used to snag titles and artist. Quick and hardly ever doesn't find a song. Sometimes it takes a few times to get the power song title for Japanese titles. But still works on them too. Love it. INDISPENSABLE APP! My only complaint is it's locked to the apple store and a few streaming services. All if which I refuse to use. So I can't really use the listen/purchase options.

    Sync between devices does not work (1 star). Song recognition is great (5 stars). When I got a new device and tried to sign in I realized there was a problem. So I had to write down all the songs I had on the old device library so as not to risk losing them before moving on. Then tried a bunch of things on the new device but confirmed device sync didn't work. I will probably try a different music discovery app now.
