I've just started using this app a few minutes ago & I have to say, it's amazing! I mean you click it open, tab the Shazam icon & watch the magic happens: It listens to the music source, a few secs, it identifies & 'tags' the song for you! You get its name, lyrics (downloadable), YouTube vids, Facebook & Twitter share options (plus more), you can also buy the songs you like on Amazon MP3...Have you ever been in the situation where you're listening to a song on a radio & you like it but just can't search it 'cause you don't know its name ( & even worse sometimes) who's singing?! Well, wonder no more, just Shazam!

Update #1: I've got over excited using this FREE version of Shazam but to my grief, I've reached the MONTHLY limit for tagging :-( I've only tagged 5 songs! Know I'm thinking of upgrading to the paid 'Full' version. A quick search: Full Version of Shazam on Android Market is $ 4.83 vs $4.99 on Amazon Appstore for Android. Well, I know it's only a few cents less or more but something to know. Plus, now I want to try another app that offers a very similar service, Soundhound. It also comes in a Free & Paid flavors. Let's dig in more music ;-)

Update #2: I've downloaded & successfully installed the free version of Soundhound. While both apps offer very similar functionalities, Soundhound offers UNLIMITED 'Taps.' Well, that's a BIG advantage over Shazam. It also advertised as being able to identify a song as the user sing it. I've tried that but the results were far off. Maybe I'm not the best performer out there or else I would've made it to American Idol! Anyways, the mixed up results in this case are quite expected.

Ever been watching a TV show and it starts playing a song in the background and you wonder what song it is? This app will tell you (it will also tell you what TV show you are watching).

Tomshardware had an article on how this works; and I still do not fully understand. Has to do with graphing the music mathematically in three space. But who cares? Not only does this app tell you the song and artist, but it will also show you the lyrics in sync with the song (newer songs only). This is truly amazing-- the app will not only recognize most classical pieces; it will often tell you the artist and/or orchestra. How does it do that- how does it know which version of the 100's of recordings of Beethoven's 5th is playing?

This is a must have app.

Tried this several times using my kindle HD. Does not work as of yet. May change mind later if it works at all. Have seen it work with smartphone. That's why I tried it. If this is how it works with kindle don't bother.

At one time Shazam was the way to go. For some reason it only works 15% of the time. Music from a television forget it. If I was trying to identify some Tibetan religious music I could understand BUT_____

I got the app to know who did this song. It took 30 try's to get my first result. It really doesen't work. One friend out of 4 says that it does work. So I'm going to give it more time. However currently I don't think it works. Operator error might be why.. I need more time to figure it out.

I have used the Shazam music app for several months now and I am very pleased with it abilities. Have used it numerous times to find an artist or information about a song that is playing and have only had one occasion that it did not recognize the song. It shows album information, lyrics and purchase information. A very good app.
