Review by grenade killer 123

what i would like to see! - Love this app, on my iphone when ever i go shopping for clothes they always have great music playing! Thanks to the app i can capture it all! but on the mac i could just leave the app running and i can capture soundtracks on the radio or from a neighbor that bumps music. What i would like to see in future updates is iphone and mac sharing the music capturing so if the app captures music while I’m out it can go to my phone and my macbook so i can buy it on Itunes on instantly as i get home from my mac! thanks for checking out this review PEACE!!!!

Review by City Panda

A valiant effort - It’s clear from the simplicity, clean interface, and easy usability that you put good effort into this. It’s great. Well. Almost. Just when I check my battery usage, one application is using the most power: Shazam! You should be running with little or no energy expended. But no! So now I can’t leave this going in the background (it IS really draining my mid-2014 Macbook Pro’s battery). Please try again, guys. But it works otherwise.

Absolute junk! - I installed it and no matter what I played from something popular to obscure it failed to pick up anything. Absolute junk, save your time and avoid this.

Review by 5stone23

Not working at all - It’s not working at all for me either, wish I had listened to the previous reviews. Not picking up a single song, while Shazam apps on ipad and iphone are having no problem.

Version 1.2.2
Review by LChuckO

Shazam - Purchased Shazam thinking it would be as good as the one on my previous iPhone. Man, am I disappointed! Playing a CD that should be easy to identify songs….BTW had immediately popped up on the iPhone. Several it could not find and any others took minutes, if at all, to find. This thing doesn’t work and I’m trying to not use the “S” word while look for how to get it off my computer.

Version 1.2.2
Review by JimDoggy

Works - But Clunky - I got this to work after a minute of waiting or so But….all it does is tell you what song is playing (which any app that monitors iTunes can do. But, the big deal for me with Shazam is that for iOS, it allows you see dynamic lyrics in the app. Here, for the Mac version, it links you to their website which will show the lyrics. Not the same thing, and rather pointless.

Version 1.2.2
Review by FluffyWhiteWolf

Disappointing - Hadnt used it in a fee years and thought id get the new version for my new MBP. Just give us a standalone app we can launch. Not another piece of clutter for the menubar. Let me tell it when to listen. Not sit there the whole time listening to everything. Make it more like the ios app. Only has recognized one song out of 10 so far. ios app got 5 of the 10 Not impressed.
