Shazaman! Searchin!

I’ve been using Shazam for over 10 years I barely thought about giving it a review. Not that it really needs it, because many people already know about the app globally. It’s the best app to see what artist/tv/movie/radio is playing! I remembered when I first used it when 3G was barely the next gen with it at these speeds it made it so much better to search for the details without any needs to going the the webpage or anything else it is at your fingertips just one click their is a way to say “Shazam” to start the searching. I am not to sure if it works with everything. Most o the type I find my self just using Siri to do most of my stuff while moving around. It’s a very useful app because you may what to know what movie someone is watching or a friend my want to know without interrupting the movie they can search seamlessly!

Apple made it worse

Shazam was one of the most inventive and useful apps ever created. I’ve been using it since the beginning. For many years it was rumored that Apple would buy Shazam - usually a good thing. Apple tends to make software better after they buyer it (well except for all the professional applications they discontinued after purchasing so they could use pieces of their technology in other, non professional, consumer applications/apps).

In this case, Apple made it much harder to link to and buy songs in the iTunes music store. Instead they want to force you to use Apple Music which I have no need for at all with my very large collection of music I already own. Unfortunately, I’m going to switch to another competitor app, which I hate to do. I’m a huge Apple fan, but this app doesn’t work for me any longer. Fortunately, there’s not many songs I like that I don’t already own, so it won’t be that big an inconvenience in my case. These company’s just don’t want you to own anything anymore, they want that consistent monthly income from you renting everything. I hate revolving dept.

Sixth Love Language

I absolutely love Shazam. I, like so many others have been able to vibe with life connecting through music; the right song always seems to find me at the right time but I rarely have time to look up lyrics to capture a new song, simply hitting the ‘Shazam Icon’ while a song is playing has been the perfect platform to do so almost seamlessly, and the ‘previously Shazamed library’ is super convenient to get back to later so I can add the songs to my playlist when I have more time.
My only request, don’t make too many huge upgrades that it becomes a complicated app like so many others do, too many upgrades can overcomplicate a simple useful platform that I have found myself using other apps less due to the fact that I have to re-learn them almost every time I open the app.

Thank you creators of Shazam
