Okay, so if you’re like me, love music, listen to all kinds of it, but have very little time on your hands, you probably discover new music on the go; while driving, waiting in line somewhere, at a restaurant, etc. And what’s the first thing that comes to mind for most of us when we hear a great song for the first time? Who’s that artist? If you can’t for the life of you guess who it is and if no one around you knows either, you get frustrated, promise to find out later only to be distracted and go through the same emotions when you hear it again!
Well, that’s about to change for you with Shazam®! I discovered this nifty little app through a friend and I’ve been loving it ever since! What’s really amazing is how easy it is to use it. You just download the app to your phone or tablet and when you hear a song you love, simply tap on Shazam to listen and the app instantly identifies the artist and automatically tags the song for you! You can then buy, share, or comment on the song. It’s that easy!
And that’s not all! Once you’ve tagged something, you can view the videos on YouTube, sing along to the song lyrics with LyricPlay™ to streamed lyrics and read the artist’s biography and discography. Shazam lets you share your discoveries with friends on Shazam Friends or on Twitter®, Facebook® and Google®+. Want to find out the most popular songs around the world? Use the interactive maps. It’s like your very own GPS for music! Shazam even lets you find TV shows and ads if that’s your thing.
