Do you often hear a song and think ‘Who is that band/singer/MC?’. I do. So the Shazam song recognition app should be a no-brainer for me. Well, that’s what I thought. It seems as if Shazam wants to make it as hard as possible for people to sign up and use their service.
You cannot sign up to Shazam via the website.
Cool, no problem. You can via email on the mobile app. I receive the email below which brings me to another issue.
I am one of those weird people who only checks my email twice a day and I’ve completely removed email from my phone. As you cannot activate your account through the website I’m kind of stuck.
Being persistent, I download an email client to my phone just so I could activate the app and uninstall the email client afterwards. Sorted. I receive a notification on my phone telling me that I can now sync my Shazams.
Great. Let me now log onto the website right now to do that.
You can only log onto the website if you have a Facebook account. I don’t have one. No biggie, I’ll log in via Twitter or Google. No? So, there must be an email option right? No. Okay, I’m done.
