Miricle app

FINALLY, thx to this app I found long time Lost and forgotten although Very SPECIAL to me song!!! So many years of searching,hopeing... waiting to hear it again ... just ones again... God pls... one more time I’ll make a fool of myself (I promise!!!... not) desperatly excited -therefore FAST ENOUGH TO ASK SOMEBODY „THIS IS THAT Song!! Make it louder God dammed!!! WHAT ARTIST IS THAT??!!!”....
... I knew I will die unknowing ... but SHAZAM ... you proved me wrong! this unpopullar song was played for 20 seconds ,I heared it again after 47 years I knew I had super small chances to ever hear it again but I didnt dare to dream I will know not only the artist but also the title... And I could play it on the funeral of my wife- it was our first love song- she heared when I played it to her in her last days in hospital before she passed away from cancer... She was so happy... Thanks Shazzam!!!!

For some its actual magic

Core of the app is its main feature. App, uses phone mic to record few seconds of music you hear and enjoy so much that you have to get this tune details like now. It than sends recorded waveform to compare it with waveform database. Over years functions has been added, databases expanded. Guys who came up with employing this waveform comparison comercialy should be awarded Noble for creativity. No 1° non-esential for sure.
