It’s like an infant that never grows up

I would like to first say I love this app...
Like everybody else I have been using this app for years. It’s simply amazing to be able to find what exactly is a piece of music is that you love so much but never knew either the name or who wrote and performed it.
The reason and the only reason I put two stars is because my passion my only time to be able to do this is my hour, Hour and a half commute every morning and evening. I enjoy Shazaming the music that brings happiness peace harmony excitement passion call during my endless rides that we all must make turn earn a living but Listening to music, that gets me through the day... and I’m not big on social media but this is the one thing I enjoy to do is to share the music that brings peace to my soul.
Having said that again you have to jump through so many hoops and hit so many buttons just to post a song on Facebook why can’t it remember each time what I want to do and not have to hit pick through the options every single time. Seriously, it’s retarded. Nowww!, just to clarify I’m not making fun of anybody who has learning disabilities, to anybody who is dyslexic or ADD like myself but really it’s just and expression so please forgive me if I insult anybody out there❤️

When I first got Shazam it was great! Then you did some upgrades and changes which were not so good; however several months later you did additional upgrades which again made the app great! However recently the app keeps blanking out on me will not retain my Shazam history and I am very frustrated by this as I am trying to retain my history in order to purchase music. I have at times Shazam music and found a new artist that I like and then purchased several songs by those artists later even introducing those artist to other people. The retained history is now too difficult to access! You need to repair the problems with Shazam or you will start losing customers me to start with! You are making too many efforts to try to get me to upgrade purchases to the product it is something that I, as well as many others, do not enjoy having foisted on us, so please stop keeping us from using our product simply in an effort to attempt to get us to purchase upgrades. Back in the day that was called a bait and switch and in most states is it legal! Make what we purchased user friendly and we will NOT be searching for other apps to ID and purchase new and old music!

It was perfect, until the updated started

I've had this problem with just a few apps...that I didn't just delete, or with whos developers I am still fighting to have them stop billing me; you get the app (and in this case, pay $4.99), it works great, and you really enjoy using it, or in the case of a navigational app, you depend on it. Then, the update notices start. And it sounds all good to you, so update. Right now this app has been in some state of suspended, useless limbo. The message states that "even though you have paid for this app," it cannot be updated unless you connect to your computer, open iTunes or whatever, Blah, Blah, Blah. I am no where near my Mac. Is this developed for a Mac computer, or for an iPhone? I must have been mistaken, because I thought it was the latter.
Screw your poorly designed improvements, and give me back the original app. Too many app developers are travelling this road. It's highley problematic. Only a cell phone company could screw up a Mac product, and really, Mac, get a tighter reign on this kind of thing. You don't look open and innovative, you look stupid and out of control.
