    "Ugh! Whats the name of that song? It's on the tip of my tongue. Shazam knows. Shazam knows all! As a musician, I love hearing a piece of music that I might want to learn, and being able to look up the song and bookmarking it elsewhere. I love Shazam! Al hail shazam!"

    "For an app, Voice Recorder is pretty good. I don't know how suitable it is for serious musicians. I guess it would be an easy way to demonstrate one's voice on a mobile device. But don't make real music with it."
