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❤️

This wonderful app, is a must have app! It allows me to find music globally! I use it to find out who the artist is, from the singers to the backup musicians in the group. On radio’s, television, to movie soundtracks in the theaters! From all generations! Don’t know what I’d do without it! Saves my sanity, now that they’ve closed almost every record store in Hawaii! The hours I use to spend in my youth. Reading and researching all kinds of music, looking for something new to share with my family and friends. Now I have it all at my fingertips in seconds! With the option to watch in on videos, or download to my phone. I can share it online on my Facebook page, with my friends and family in the mainland. Along with the great island music, we have here in Hawaii! I can’t live without it now! So addicted! Do yourself a favor and download “Shazam App” immediately!
Luv & Aloha Kathi Jo

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!
