Great app

As a just lover of music, I just love that this app exists. I’m always wanting to know ‘who’s this?’. Shazam not only finds out, but keeps a record (‘scuse the pun) of my queries and offers to add the track to my preferred music streaming service. Ok, it sometimes makes mistakes, but I’m ok with the odd blip.

Would like to say, though, if anyone’s listening who could change this: I’ve had a right faff trying not to lose the Shazams from my old phone (having inadvertently signed up with a different email address on my new phone). It could/should be possible/easier to combine Shazams from two accounts.

Apart from that: well done!

yayyyyyy I'm not that annoying ,

Why Shazam is stupid!!!

You may be wondering why I picked that is my title well it’s because it’s true! Shazam used to be the place where I went for a certain genre of music, But now they just made it one big list. The type of music are used to listen to on Shazam was hip-hop, but one day I went on the website and I didn’t find the list. So I thought they just wanted me to download the app. Then I decided to download the app because I was hopeful that just maybe, just maybe they wanted me to download the app so I can get all those genres back, when I downloaded the app it was the exact same, just more confusing. The confusing part is not the point. All that’s important is I want the genres back, NOW!!!

Thank you for reading my review, I hope you consider being less stupid and decide to put back to genres, I feel like I’m not the only person he’s annoyed by this, I bet you there’s like a whole percentage of people that got really annoyed that you stopped with the genres but instead of getting angry and do what I’m doing right now, they just stopped going on your website, and your website was so important and different to all the other websites, because you have the only website that actually had all those genres and that’s why it was a good website until you change it to what it is now. So I hope you stop being stupid and consider going back to how it was, thank you.

Shazam - Always Good, if not Great

Shazam has always frustrated me - frustrated because technically it’s astonishing, yet could be so much better.
I mean, thinking back to when I was at school and mobiles were only just becoming commonplace, the idea back then that you could find a song simply by using your phone to listen to it would have been phenomenal, and still is when you think about it rather than take it for granted.
And yet, beyond that ability, I’ve never found Shazam to be all that. It deleted a whole load of old songs I’d Shazamed from the early days (which I’d assumed would be relatively safely stored!) and because I tend to use Shazam only for interesting/rare songs I’m unlikely to hear often, chances of me finding what they all were are next to none. It makes me anxious about using it as a permanent store platform.
Second thing is it’s not exactly easily integrated with other music apps/devices; really it would be nice to have added Shazamed songs straight into a playlist as soon as you get the answer - I’m hoping its integration with the Apple family could signal a change around of this.
Thirdly, quite simply I’ve never found the layout as straightforward and easy to use as it could be.
As mentioned, I’m hoping this could change with the recent news, and there’s very nothing that puts me off using it completely!
