With Shazam you can identify music tracks with your phone. The new Encore app brings extra features, fast performance and slick new design.
With over 10 million downloads Shazam is probably one of the most popular music apps in the world. You can use it to identify music, for example when you hear a great song on the radio or a cool track in a club, Sharam tell you what it is. The people behind the music app have now created Shazam Encore, a new app which answers the requests of its users to take them on an enhanced music journey that will change the way music lovers experience and learn about music.
"From launching the first mobile music recognition service in 2002, Shazam is yet again defining the way mobile users experience the music around them. And now, seven years on we're offering Shazam fans a compelling application which will allow them to discover, acquire and share new music in more ways than ever before, while still enabling new users to download and use Shazam for free.", said Andrew Fisher, CEO of Shazam.
Shazam Encore is filled with new functionality, including:
* Improved speed performance: making it even quicker for users to tag tracks and learn more about their music.
* Music recommendations: users can discover other music similar to the track that's been tagged to enhance their music collection and knowledge.
* Find what's hot and popular: Shazam music charts generated by millions of other Shazamers can be accessed to help users keep up to date with the new tracks and players in the music scene.
* Search music: easily find music by artist, album or track from over 8 million songs.
* Drive and Tag: Shazam automatically enters into car mode when the iPhone is placed in an in-car dock to make it simple to discover what's playing on the radio even when driving.
Shazam will continue to support the existing free Shazam app on the App Store with new users limited to five Tags per month. Existing Shazam users will get all of these great features they've come to expect from Shazam without any limitations Additionally, the free Shazam app has been enhanced with services such as the ability to share Tags onto a Facebook mini-feed.
The Shazam Encore app is available from the App Store. The older versions of Shazam are now also available for BlackBerry and Android.
