WhoSampled Reviews


Simply The Best  KCBrooklyn  5 star

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.

exploding world

Sweet app  exploding world  5 star

Awesome app for any producer or just straight up hip-hop head.


Great but not working right now  B.A.L.L.I.N  2 star

Spotify integration still not working


Spotify won’t scan  Goodyfried  2 star

Says my Spotify scans my playlist but says that no tracks matched. Which is very annoying.


Horrible  Dymdeva  1 star

3.99 to download the app, then 9.99 to search by microphone audio input, only to be told NAME of song (which I already knew) with no other data.... Could SHAZAM that into for free. Spent 14.98 for NOTHING.


LOVE IT  Bawstradamus  5 star

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


Just magnificent!!!!  Princejron  5 star

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





Best app ever created  bigbrucedog  5 star

Loooooooooooooove this app talk about useful use it all the time


So awesome  Betzabillion  5 star

Just spend the $3.


Not sure  buttman2016  3 star

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  Smpman31  5 star

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



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 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


Must have  Dorius45190  5 star

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


Simply Amazing  mozzatron  5 star

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.

True shred head

Awesome app  True shred head  5 star

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


Perfect for audiophiles!  SuperFistMan  5 star

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!

Torres #9

Great app  Torres #9  5 star

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


Great App First of All!  tacotime116  5 star

I love this app. Just one thing though. Online you are able to jump to the part where the artist sampled on the song. On the app you can't do that for some reason...you have to do it yourself...other than that it's a great app!


Pure Magic  cali.joe  5 star

(this is my first ever app review, after nearly 7 years w/ iPhone apps asking me to write a review, this app is so awesome they didn't even have to ask!) anyways, if you truly love music, buy this app. the sense of magic & wonder this app provides is priceless, but sure as hell worth $3.99..thank you for making this amazing app!!


Handy Tool for DJs Producers and Music Enthusiasts  josh-villoch  5 star

This app is straight up awesome . Can show you most roots and original samples of music . But it crashes whenever I try fixing my account so that's why it doesn't get 5/5 highly recommended


Hard to Navigate  Grizzlymikey  2 star

Really hard to compare the original track with the sampled version when they aren't side by side like they are on the website, so I don't understand why I paid money for a more confusing and difficult way to examine songs. Please fix it so that its similar to the website where it plays next to each other.


Don't leave phone set to Vibrate  HugoRabson  5 star

I was mistaken. The app works if your phone is not on Vibrate. :) It's a great app. I love it.


It won't pull up the search results when I search  Iluvzaynmalik521  4 star

When I try and type an artist or a track, it doesn't pull up anything. I love the app in general but the only problem I have is it's not searching very good. It doesn't bring up the artist or track. If you could fix this, please do so thank you


WhoSampled is indispensable  chiefbucknell  4 star

I appreciate the recent, long awaited app update(s). WhoSampled, the website and also this app, has been an amazing resource to learn about what sounds went into songs I've known for years. The best bonus of the app, for me, is that it scans my personal music library. WhoSampled forever!

Reagan Slater

Very Helpful! No problems thus far.  Reagan Slater  5 star

This is a great tool in the production process. The app loads quickly, preventing the creative flow from being broken in the studio. If I need to know whether or not my sample has already been used, this app allows me to efficiently find that out. I've used the website for a while now and have noticed that some videos are not available, and that issue does translate to the app as well. But this isn't for all songs, not even the majority. Just happens sometimes. Overall a great app.


audio doesn't work  YUNGSAIYAN  1 star

youtube videos play but no audio, please update the app


Finally updated!  Belloso  5 star

Thanks! This app is great.
