Shazam - Identify playing songs around you
Review by on
One of the most popular apps on Apple's App Store is Shazam, due to the fact that it can recognize music on the fly. If you are a fan of Apple products, you will be glad to know that Shazam is available on the Mac App Store as well. It offers the same functionality, but for your Mac. In other words, if music is playing on your Mac or around it, you will always know its title and artist. Just like its mobile version, Shazam is absolutely free and it can be installed in just a few seconds.

If you are not familiar with Shazam, then you should first ask yourself where you have been living all these years. The application is capable of identifying the title and artist of songs, based on their acoustic fingerprints. In other words, the application "listens" to a song that is playing nearby and it will tell you what it is. The application relies on a rich database, so it works with almost any song, regardless of its genre or age.

All you have to do is launch Shazam on your Mac and the application will take care of the rest. While working in the background, it will recognize any songs, playing on your Mac or from external sources. The best part is that it identifies music automatically, without asking for any kind of user input. You won't even notice the application until it comes to life, when music is playing around you.

Identified songs are added automatically to a playlist, which you can display by clicking the application's icon on the menu bar. Besides viewing a history of recognized songs, you can also share the titles with your friends, on various social medias. Additionally, you can buy the songs from the iTunes store and retrieve their lyrics.

The application works in the background, without getting in your way. Identified songs are added to a playlist, from where you can buy them, retrieve lyrics and share the titles.

In certain cases, Shazam's Mac version may not work or start working after a few days.

While Shazam is working on your Mac, you will always know what music is playing, regardless of its source.

You can download Shazam free here.
