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!!!!
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.

Does not work - Doesn’t work at all. Please delete from the app store so people stop wasting their time. Just web-base shazam you noobs. Ever think about how impossible it is to shazam a song that’s playing out of your phone??
Shazam is great for check sound info at the moment, but you only need siri - If you want to know "what sound is", in your laptop or external sound, just ask siri, what soing is?, and siri gonna check in Shazam server. For that reason I think this versión of shazam is a background checker and is not usual as phone versión.
Great app, but had to uninstall because... - I’ve been having issues lately where two processes on my mac have been running like crazy, locationd and his trusty sidekick trustd. I’ve searched and searched to try and figure out why they’ve been gobbling up so many resources and running my fans on high. Finally I started quitting certain applications one at a time to see what is requiring these processes. Turns out it was Shazam. For whatever reason, this app is calling locationd and trustd to run at a high cpu rate whenever it is running. I’ve uninstalled for now but will gladly reinstall and give 5 stars if this issue is addressed.
Caveat: spoiler alert - The folks at Apple ought to have their licenses revoked—or whatever these nincompoops get to allow them to make this a Pick! Please don’t insult our intelligence. Living with Shazam is like living in New York: a love/hate relationship. for years it never worked. then 6 months ago, it miraculoulsy came to life and actually ID’d music. Of course, in the past few weeks “no result” appears after every push of the button. if you’re a died in the wool masochist this is the app for you. For the rest of the world, drive on!
