WhoSampled Comments & Reviews 2022

- Use this for my radio show

I have always loved researching my favorite hip hop songs to see what they sample, and your website is my favorite tool. I loved doing it so much I made a radio show dissecting songs and playing their samples when I got to college. I called it WhoSampled. This app is so cool- the scan feature helps me find samples I didn’t even know to look for. Found so much new stuff to play on my show. Thank you WhoSampled!

- Great

I love this app so much! Very helpful finding the origins of songs that I love. Only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because I think this app would be complete if you incorporated mixtapes into this app as well. There are so many mixtapes that sample a lot of artists and I would love to see where the songs sampled from. If that does get incorporated then I will change my rating to a 5 Star. P.S. you could work with other apps like Spinrilla, datpiff, and MyMixtapes and they could help you get a lot of the material

- Fits me to a T

I grew up reading liner notes on my father’s LPs and continued to do so when hip-hop came along. Reading liner notes enabled me to discover artists that I never knew anything about and never would have been privy to had they not been sampled. This app allows me to discover even more artists as I did when I was a kid reading liner notes. It’s a great idea. Thanks for making it available to the world.

- Garbage App! Developers are Deceptive

This is the first and last app I have ever paid for and I clearly made a mistake doing it. The app is exactly like their website which is FREE. I only downloaded this app to use their Track Identification tool which I was under the impression would be available for use after purchasing the app but what WhoSampled FAILED TO MENTION was that I had to pay a subscription of $10/month when Rap Genius has their tool available for free... all in all these people are greedy and their services shouldn’t be worth a dime. Only reason why I downloaded it was to find a sample I couldn’t find on Genius but of course I couldn’t do that

- Who Sampled Is Love

I first came across who sampled when I took a hip hop course in college and used it on the website for assignments. Now that there is an app available on my phone I can use it on the go, it is always helpful to know the history of music to get a better understanding of the current song. Absolutely love this tool ❤️

- You have to pay more to subscribe to have the app “listen”

Careful... I just spent $4 to purchase and before I’ve even used it once, I must pay more to have the app “listen” to a song (something I can do for free with Shazam) to identify the sample, I have to subscribe for $10 a year on top of paying to purchase? Lame. This should have been more clear. So it’s really not $4. It’s $14. Yuck. At least give me a couple of free “listens” to see how the app works and test drive it. Without knowing if this feature works well, I’m not going to risk spending more. Plus I have a bad taste in my mouth now. I suggest you build some trust first.

- Best Money I’ve ever spent

This is actually my first review of an app and believe me , I have tons in my phone (uou probably do too) but no app has been so useful for my hobbies than this one. The fact that I can trace the origins of a song and the many versions and covers of it are produced its just priceless! Awesome Idea! Very happy with it :)

- This app is a tool.

For myself, being a former DJ on a sabbatical making a life, I find this app repeatedly gives me a lesson into the creativity of producers today. I find myself enjoying the new sound created and the original piece. It’s like getting your two birds with one stone, every time. Thank you WhoSampled.

- Need To Give Clarification Of Usage

I purchased this app, to find out the origin of sample in said song. Not who sampled from the song. For example, if I’m researching whether or not an artist used a sample in their song. i.e. HER in Focus, was there a sample used in this song? I was under the impression, based your description, that this app helps you locate samples in songs you love —- not who sampled from or covered songs you love.

- Amazing App!

What an incredible app. Much less time will be spent now digging through music, hoping one day you’ll make the connection of the songs that share the same beat/ other similarities. Simply awesome.

- Read This First!!!

Buying this app doesn’t let you analyze music with it. They ask you to subscribe for $10 yearly to get the feature. I know we all expected that because we paid for the app we were paying so we could advance “Shazam” songs. All it let’s you do is look up songs already in their data base which you could have done with Wikipedia for free. It’s both a ripoff and a waste of time.

- Jump feature?

Is there no way to jump to the part in the song that the sample appears at like on the website? It’s brutal having to manually go to the part of the track that the sample is at, especially on a smaller device.

- Could be better

App design is looks so old. Something i would expect to see on an iPhone4. Paying for a subscription to find a song by listening to it? Shazam does that, and they do it for free. If you’re into music and want to explore more behind your favorite tracks then I guess this app is for you, IF you can tolerate the app crashing and disgusting old design. And that’s a big IF

- Must have app.

If you love music and want to know where a sample originated the this app is for you. You will be surprised and fascinated by the breath of source materials that artists have pulled samples from. Stop now and download this app now.

- Bambozled

First you get us to pay $3.99 just to download the app only to discover you have pay another $9.99 to get it to work! Just be upfront and not use b.s. tactics to get money. Remember people used to pay $50 for apps they needed! Let us decide if we want to pay for what we want instead of forcing it insidiously.

- No sound!!??

Love the website, love the database, and the app is pretty great for looking up songs and getting the info. For some reason, audio isn't working in the app. The videos play back and appear to work, but I'm hearing no sound with them on my iPhone6 -- which is kinda the whole point of the app. Bummer.

- Wish it was optimized for iPads

The app just like the website is great but I wish on the iPad I could get a full screen rather than the phone version. Also would be great to have the app be able to turn horizontal. Oh well hopefully on a future update it’ll happen

- Best app

My favorite app.. word up. From the new music back to the old tracks I’ve learned alot.. Or I’ll even just go straight to a favorite Old Soul song and see who sampled it & find new Hip Hop joints that I now love 💪

- Fantastic app!!

I have been wanting an easier way to determine song/sample origins for a long time and this app is exactly that. Well worth the $3.99. A great addition to my music collection.

- Discovery

For me, this is one of the best ideas ever. It is because of this webisiteand now app that I was able to discover other music genres outside of what I regularly listen to

- Samples is where the strength is!

Just downloaded this app while hearing music mixed in tracks that sounded familiar like Real school music! It’s the best in the market. Go head get the download and start having fun!

- Great App

I have been using this app for 5 years now... it’s useful for me because I love music and I believe it’s good to know where a songs originated from.

- Ripoff: Beware

I just bought this app for $4 — now I can’t even use it without paying an additional $10. Almost $15 total?! The first time I tried using the app it just crashed and I have a new phone! All I wanted to do was see who sampled a couple of songs. They should inform buyers that the $4 price of the app will literally only let you download it but not let you actually use it.

- Best Music App

I have found so many cool older bands to listen to after checking out WhoSampled. Like Bob Dylan said, “The good borrow... the great steal.” Find out who they’re stealing from w this app

- Love this app!!!!!

I am able to discover new music through samples used in songs I’m listening to.

- Pretty useful but....

Lots of broken links and I hate that the music stops anytime I want to do anything else with the app. We should be able to browse at the least while listening to music?

- Just magnificent!!!!

This app is amazing. So helpful to find songs that used the same sample and also finding the source. Great job!!!

- Simply The Best

This is the de facto best app for sample references. Been using it for years. Helped me to find and appreciate original music and artists and new music as well.

- Great app

Been using the website since it’s inception it only makes sense to have an app

- iPad support

The app is brilliant. Would love to have an iPad version. Currently using the iPhone version on iPad and it works but not as pretty. Any plans to port, Devs?

- Ok but website is better

Just seems to be a less up to date version of what’s on the site. After using the app for a while, I found it usually to be faster just to go to the website

- The Best

This app is the most used on my phone, at least 4 times a day!

- Can’t even sign up

I’m a fan of the website so I thought I’d pay the $4 and give the app a try. I had multiple failed attempts to sign up even though my password was long enough, and I had letters and numbers.


It’s really one of my favorite apps. An absolute must have for any audiophile or even someone who is remotely interested music.

- No audio

Why isn’t my audio working for iPhone 8? Waiting to rate


I love this everyday of my life it’s about diggin in the crates and finding where u from and who you are musically

- Changed from Samsung

Came from samsung to iPhone . Kinda mad I had to buy it with iPhone but you get your money’s worth... FIX THE BUGS SO I CAN BUMP THE ORIGinals on my apple playlist PLEASE Please Please

- The website has to many ads and it glitches. The app UI can use a redesign


- Great App!

Love how you can find the sample history of a track

- Knowledge

This app is so amazing! I love it. You wanna research or have curiosity about a beat or melody? look no further. This app is genius.

- Dopest app on the market!!!

Always accurate and on point!

- Where were you in the 80’s

Greatest creation since the 808!!!

- Wow

You have to buy the scan feature too. I paid for the app under the impression that I could listen for songs but you can’t use the feature unless you buy it for $10

- Recommendations

It’d be an awesome musical experience if the app could recommend a playlist/songs based on your music library.

- Awesome

If you have a love for originals and samples, this app is really more than 5 stars.

- Ugh got fooled like the rest...

Bought this in hopes of using their Shazam type feature but then that’s a yearly subscription. This app is exactly like their free website.

- Love it BUT

Def needs an update bad, favorites won’t save, apple music won’t sync etc

- Not worth the money

The website is great you should just stick to it. For a 4 dollars app this has way too many bugs and looks way too old. Very disappointed to be honest

- If you’re into figuring out samples...

This is an amazing tool.

- Needs Update

Design, speed, basically everything you press on looks unbearable. Also very slow compared to the one online which is for free :/

TransferWise 💸

Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!

- Brilliant database

This app is so good, massive database and has helped me find so many awesome samples. Only issue is the interface sometimes screws up and I can’t click on some links because they either go up or down behind the header and footer of the page and get hidden behind them.

- I Love this app

Brilliant app keeps track of nearly every track available

- Awesome app, but one glaring bug

I’ve been using this app for a long time and have found incredible use from this, but the current version has one glaring bug. When running in the background, it silenced any notification sounds and haptic feedback on my 11 Pro Max. The only workaround is to close the app from the app switcher. Please fix this ASAP. Thanks.

- Not sure

I was lead to believe this app would be able to identify songs that Shazam can’t by accessing some other database and that’s supposedly why it’s worth paying for I’ve had it for a few months now. it can’t.

- The best

This app breaks it all down & I love learning the original samples

- Unable to create an account.

The app consistently complains that any password I enter must be between 8-20 characters long and can only contain alphanumeric characters. This despite my trying several passwords that fit that description. As a result, the app is unusable.


Ok when I first starting using this app I did have some minor issues, but they were immediately rectified. This app is made for music lovers like myself and for Hip-Hop heads out there this is the app for you it's just endless and endless of samples of great classics and ones I've never heard before, and can be easily add to your personal Apple Music playlist. By far my favourite app of the last 5yrs hands down I'm just ashamed of myself for only coming across it now deserves more than 5Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

- Simply Amazing

I will be using this app for many years to come, probably forever in fact! Absolutely brilliant and so well out together. You will learn so much about the music you love and discover some utter gems along the way. Anyone who likes music needs this app.

- Perfect for audiophiles!

Creates a whole new level in your music library, I spent hours going through my tracks learning their roots and found some great new music in the process. Thanks!

- Must have

So impressed by this app!! Could spend hours digging my library! Definitely worth the 3$! Cheers

- Great app

For the real music lover. Hours of entertainment and the gateway to so many great songs.

- Awesome app

Awesome app I dare someone to find a song that has been sampled more than Amen brother by the Winston's 674 known examples.

- Good database, however subscription based even after purchase.

Awesome database and discovery of samples used however I thought this was $5.99 to buy the app to use the microphone to identify tracks like Shazam, didn’t realise I needed a subscription for $15.99 a year to be able to do that. Didn’t see the mention of in app purchases before I bought the app.

- Have to pay for app, then subscription! Misleading.

I was excited to use this app so I downloaded it as I had some nice reviews at $5.99. However, once I tried to activate a new account it prompted me with a subscription to run audio ID for music for $14.49 annually! Don’t compare your database to Shazam identification if you have to pay MORE to use the function I thought I was initially paying for. Really annoyed if I could refund an app I would. Very misleading :(

Payoneer 💰

Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!

- Worth the money

So much more efficient than the website, only things I would say that are missing are 1: to be able to favorite tracks 2: to be able to make lists

- Ripoff ($20 App!!)

Beware!! This app does not cost a couple dollars. It’s fully useless without the subscription so you have to pay for that on top of the app itself. For a Canadian like me app cost $6.15 + subscription $14.55 is a lot of money for an app that doesn’t even contain most of the music I listen to. Looking into a refund because it’s honestly ridiculous unless you listen to nothing but top 40 rap maybe.

- Worth it

Every penny worth

- best search engine

so much references, it really brings you out knowledge about history and music, such a great chest of nuggets

- Great

Amazing! Great app love it.

- Expensive

Was great until you charged for streaming

- Best idea. Great tool.

Too good for words. Literally changed my life.

- Great app

Great app but the user interface could be more aesthetically appealing


I love this app since the website and it helped me expand my music knowledge!! now I pay attention to things above that THANK YOU WHOSAMPLED FOREVER! I want to invest in them!!!

- One of the greatest apps ever

This app is beyond helpful. It is my lifeline forcdiscovering original breaks and samples.

- Mind Blown

AYEEEE Major must have for all music lovers 🙌🏼

- Waste of money

No jump to sample, have to create an account to use any of the features and after paying for the app they even try to charge you a yearly subscription to do what other apps do for free. I dropped 6 bucks just to return to using the website (which is awesome). Save your money.

- Great App! Well Worth it!

Great App! Worth it if your a die hard music fan and want to see where some of the ideas came about by using samples and find some cool cover songs and remixes. I would highly recommend it.

- Login fail

It keeps telling me my login credentials are incorrect. I have checked and double checked. Nothing seems to work. Hope it's temporary. ****UPDATE**** Issue has been resolved. Still not sure what happened. App is great! I've found many new songs for parties! My song list is considerably longer. 👍🏽

- One of the best purchase i made, but...

Great app, LOVE it, but some songs are missing. Also, whenever I try to login with Spotify, it shows: The login credentials you entered were wrong.

- Pretty neat

Really cool to dig into your favourite songs.

- I love this

Finding the sources of samples in songs has always been a rewarding hobby. Apart from being just plain fascinating, I've found tons of great classic music this way. I have a list I've been working on for a few years, but this is far more comprehensive than what I've got. Good interface, and a really cool way to explore the genealogy of music.

- For music lovers

This has to be one of the best apps for discovering new music and gaining knowledge in the music you know. The only thing this app needs is optimization for the iPad.

- ...

Love this app... It's resolved many a late night debate about who was the original musician

- Aye!

Homies! Optimize for iPad and you may have my extra star!

- This app is amazing

I bought it yesterday I'm having fun with it since. I like the library feature and its so well done, all the info that it contains! A must

- Great app

It has an incredibly slick design and is easy to use well worth the price

- Magnificent ...

Great interface and really easy to use. totally worth it and highly recommended for audiophiles !

- Fantastic!!

Loads of fun!! Would love to see an iPad version.

- Whosampled it is SICK

What an awesome app! There's lots of crap you could waste 2.99 on, but this is worth it for true audiophiles. If you get this app, use it and then complain, you're probably just another miserable hipster douchebag with a useless degree in douchebaggery drinking PBR and complaining about everything in general. ('scuse the rant but it was fun) ENJOY!!!
