    linking Shazam to itunes
    Am I going crazy, I have the brilliant app Shazam working on my iphone 3g.

    Once it identifies the song playing HOW do I get it to link directly to iTunes.

    I can take a photo, link to You Tube, share it, delete it but the most obvious feature, i.e. download the song form iTunes is not there.

    The website says you can do it with one click,

    What am I missing,

    Thanks

    Well, I just checked on my phone and the iTunes link is on all my tags. Maybe what you are looking for is not in the iTunes library??

    You Tube
    Biography:
    Discography:
    "take photo"
    "attach photo"
    "share Tag"
    "Delete"

    That is strange, or perhaps you are going crazy...

    Maybe try deleting the app and reinstalling it.

    MTN SA is a South African carrier, right?

    Maybe that song isn't available in the SA iTunes store?

    Yes, I would suggest that when you are by your computer next, open up iTunes and go to the store. Find a song on there and play the preview with Shazzam listening. Then you know the song is available on iTunes in your area and then see if iTunes button shows up on Shazzam.

    Yes I am in South Africa I think you are on to something. There are NO songs on the South African iTunes website, I have an american account but maybe Shazam is trying to download in South Africa. How Can I change this.

    Very Frustrating

    Aptmunich, you are 100% right, I changed my Location to the USA "under settings - general - international - regional format" now it works perfectly.

    Thanks Everyone
