Shazam - App Review



So there you are listening (or overhearing) some music but, can't figure out the title of the song, or remember the name of the artist, or even can't understand the words.

This App resolves all those issues.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The home screen invites you to Touch to Shazam. Just do this.

Let the App listen to the music and after a few moments you are presented with the album cover, song title and artist name. In addition you can choose to listen on your iOS device, (Deezer, Napster, Directly) as well as buy it, add it to a playlist (Shazam, Spotify, Apple Music).

You can also search directly for the lyrics, which is where you will also find the author(s).

For those of you who are looking for something random, you can explore top tracks from around the world (arranged by town by country).

Cost
The App Costs $0, although if you purchase songs, you will need to pay.

Indispensability
The App just makes finding the right music so easy; no need to sing the tune to someone for them to tell you they've never heard of it!

Dependability
The App works remarkably well although, if the person next to you keeps saying, especially loudly, who is it, it will take longer to detect what the music is.

Security
The App asks for access to your location so as to update your history, and also send geographically targeted ads, although you can refuse this access.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Makes buying music easy and settles arguments.
