Editors' Review

+

Are you not sure what song that is playing on the radio or on TV? Crack open Shazam and hold it near the source long enough for the free app to get a fix--about 30 seconds. Shazam compares the recorded song with music in its database and will return a match to your song. In Shazam lingo, this is "tagging" a song, identifying its name and artist. Shazam for Android remembers the music you tag and gives you a chance to buy it yourself via the Amazon MP3 store on your phone. If you can't get enough of the song, you can also watch a YouTube video, if there's one available. A tie-in with MySpace also gets you close to the band if they have a page there.

Compared with Shazam on other mobile platforms, this version is still behind on features, like watching trends, though for casual users, it's fully functional as is. Just don't expect Shazam to pick up your own warbling. It works on recorded music only.

"Jaw dropper"

January 26, 2010  |  By jcwiegmann

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Works as advertised, lives up to the hype.

Cons

It doesn't have (that I've found) a simple "add to my last.fm library" button, but once I have the artist and song name, this is hardly a real negative.

Summary

This is the application that causes jaws to drop after their owner has just asked "What do these 'app' things DO anyway?" While it's not necessary, it's almost required. It couldn't be easier to use, and does its job well.

"This ROCKS!"

January 26, 2010  |  By jojoquacks

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Amazing accuracy and depth of information, speed

Cons

Occasionally tags the same song as being on different albums - which it probably is, to be honest

Summary

I love this app - and I love the curious staresI get when I'm in some fast-food joint, hear a song from the overhead speakers, stand up and hold my phone in the air! This app is fun, surprisingly accurate, and ridiculously easy to use. I can stop trying to remember how a song sounds with the vague hope of hearing a DJ identify it someday. When I get home it is easy to grab the MP3's I want based on my tag list. I never even notice the ads, so who cares? If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
