Go back to full autoshazam

I downloaded this app so i can know every song playing at almost any time. With the new app, you have to manually click it and it only shazams the current song. Much preferred when it listened to every song it could catch. Love the redesign, but consider going back to autoshazam please.

Unfriendly to classical music fans

As a classical music fan, I find this a frustrating app. They've gone to the trouble of putting thousands of classical recordings into their database, and the app is frequently successful in identifying relatively obscure items. The problem is that they haven't bothered to think about how to present the identification. Here's my latest example: I turned on the radio in midstream of what was clearly a piano quartet or quintet. It was obviously 19th-century French music, and I suspected — from a similarity to a piano trio I knew — that the composer was Fauré. From tempo etc. it seemed we were in the final movement. What I wanted to know — what a classical music fan typically wants to know — was the composer and the name of the overall 4-movement composition. After a couple of tries, Shazam succeeded, telling me that the piece was 4. Allegro Molto, performed by the Beaux Arts Trio & Lawrence Dutton. That was Interesting, but you see what's missing: precisely the two pieces of information I wanted. Now, of course, I could use this information to identify the piece by Googling, or I could just wait to the end and hear what the announcer says. I conclude, however, that Shazam is not interested in the classical music niche audience. They could easily fix this issue. How about a button for "more information"?

No System Audio Listening (like the iPhone version)

Shazam is a great service but it would be much easier to use on a desktop system if it could listen to songs being played by other software on the same system, as it can do in iOS on the iPhone. The need for a microphone and speakers to shazam a track being played on the same system is too much of a requirment for use. Please let us shazam music played by any source on the system, like the iPhone.
