I’ve uninstalled Shazam on iOS as it recently stopped allowing users to turn off auto-recording. I don’t want the app running down my battery listening for audio as I go about my day. I’m surprised this kind of UX “feature” made it through Apple’s store review process — it’s a bit of a privacy violation.
