Shazam review: Find the Song's Name in a few Taps
Shazam is an app that will help you to find the name of the song. For example, you hear a song somewhere outdoors. All you have to do is to use Shazam app, and the program will immediately find the name of the playing song. However, to use Shazam, you have to use an Internet connection. If you do not have an Internet connection, you can use Shazam anyways, and the name of the song will be shown right after you connect your gadget to the Internet (offline Shazaming). You can download Shazam latest version for free.
Shazam Functionality — 5/5
After you have started the app, you will see the main menu. There you will see a big Shazam button. To start searching for a song, you have to tap this button. You can also tap and hold the button to enable the Auto Shazaming.
You will see your Shazams if you press My Shazams button that is located at the top right corner of your screen. There you will see the history of your shazamed songs. The application will also provide you with Save your Shazams function. To do so, you have to log in into Shazam with the help of your Facebook account or Email address. You can set the Shazam app, by enabling certain functions. For example, you can turn on the Auto Shazam Mode, Pop-Up Shazam (the program will search for music while you use other apps), and Shazam on startup (Shazam will search for a song right after you opened it).

Shazam Usability — 4/5
Shazam works nice. The app provides us with all the promised functions. However, sometimes the application may not recognize the music from the first time. You may try to “Shazam” the song one more time. This situation may happen in case you put your finger on your microphone or because there is a lot of noise and Shazam can't hear the music correctly.
