"If you believe that: Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul, then don't let music get away just like that, Shazam is here." ---AllWeLike

Can you actually live without music? Can you carry on a day without listening to any song? Can you spend 24 hours without humming a tune? The answer: NO. Believe it or not, music is a part of you.

An American Novelist once said:

“When people hear good music, it makes them homesick for something they never had, and never will have.”

This saying seems to remind us that we can’t have it all at the same time. Never expect everything is within reach all at the same time. Just like our sentiment over music.  You just can’t grab it and feel free to grasp it as long as you want to. Making it yours to live on forever.  There will be some sad times where you stand in the middle of a crowded street and you hear something, then suddenly you fell in love with it but you know you just can’t get it all of a sudden. Then poof! No more song, no more love. However, keep a little faith. You can actually have it now.

We’re not speaking of dear old Google and trying to rely on your ability to memorize lyrics. We’re speaking of something new, something smart, something genius. If you believe that “Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.” then don’t let music get away just like that, is here.

Shazam —Not your ordinary Magic Word?

Shazam is an application for your Android and iOS smartphone that identifies music tracks and stores it. It allows you to discover the artist and even connects you to its page. You can view the song on YouTube, buy it on Amazon and even gets you connected on their website. Shazam put on some smart notes to your smartphone.

Paying the Price for good Magic

Good news folks! If you’re green and droid, the app is free for you. With just one click, music will be delivered to you.

The Power of Shazam

For Android users, Shazam is one of the most useful apps you’ll be getting. Not to mention ultimate coolness. It delivers functionality way better than what it does on your desktop. Imagine having the power to listen to music and tell you what song it is, and Shazam isn’t a wizard huh?

Feature Perfect

Shazam has two cool superpowers: Tag Now and My Tags. Tag Now allows you to easily listen to a music and it returns the song name, artist, album, record label, artist MySpace page, link to buy the song/album in Amazon’s MP3 store, and YouTube video. Whereas, My Tags shows a list of songs you’ve tagged for possible visitations later on.

Shazamic Interface

Shazam’s UI is very slick. Always easy to manipulate and control. Easy listening with the circular motion graphic. One word: AWESOME!


Okay, so Shazam is not a god. It has some little imperfections but always acceptable. Like when there’s too much noise. Honestly, you cannot describe the song if there’s too much noise right? Also the fact that not all the songs you want can be found. Some may be out of the planet. But updates are always on the go.


Identify music without having to search for the lyrics. Let you’re phone do the works. You sing it, hum it or voice search it. Get some interesting facts about the music and the mind behind the song.

Music Journey Made Possible

So are you going to download it or not? All We Like say YES! Shazam is simply a genius. Not perfectly genius but the glitches to its glamor are always acceptable. If you’re looking for a music-buddy, Shazam is the right magic word. You need not to carry a wand, or study at Hogwarts. With a little abracadabra, Shazam will be there even before you open your eyes. What are you waiting for? Grab Shazam here.
