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.

""who does that one song?""

August 24, 2010  |  By jojoquacks

 |  Version: Shazam for Android 1.3

Pros

At last I can easily find out the answer to the question above!

Cons

Since they became a paid app (though longer time users like me still have full use for free) it is MUCH MUCH SLOWER.

Summary

I've loved this app from the beginning - no more calling radio stations (ancient history) or checking the web to get song information - but since last couple of updates, the app has been horribly slow to load and to return results. Also, it crashes frequently when I try to go back after looking at a specific tagged item. Since I have been a user for a long time, I am still able to use the app for free, so I do continue to use it. If I had to pay for it, I wouldn't, given the problems since the updates.

"not free on android anymore"

 |  Version: Shazam for Android 1.3

Pros

works great. 95% of the songs are able to be tagged. if you have issues, the developer responds quickly to emails.

Cons

recent update makes it a 7day trial and 5tags a month after that. or pay for unlimited tagging. i had unlimited but had to replace my phone due to hardware issues. they should make it to where it tracks you phone number instead of your serial number.

Summary

over all it's a good app. just needs a few tweeks.
