    Default Shazam 5.0 Released


    Today the popular music recognition service, Shazam, has been introduced with an update to version 5.0. The application allows you to tap on the screen when you hear a song you like to use the built in microphone tag the song and find out what it is for your later activities. For many, it's a must-have iOS application and it has had quite the reputation for being reliable and great. If you own Shazam (or you plan to buy it), head over to the App Store:



    The new update brings much faster tagging algorithms to make it faster to grab those songs before you miss them. The application launch is much zippier and it can also start listening as soon as you launch the application so you don’t even have to tap on the screen to invoke Shazam’s features.

    More minor updates include editable Tweets for iOS 5 users, since iOS 5 brought us native Twitter integration – this function lets us Tweet the songs we tag. Additionally, Shazam was recently a tad laggy, which as been fixed to make all animations and navigation butter smooth. If you were a user of the friend feed, it will also load up faster. LyricPlay speed has also been improved so you can now stream the lyrics at almost the exact same time you are hearing the music you are tagging. You will also notice some interface differences.

    Just like all App Store updates, this update is free for all current Shazam owners. If you have not bought the Shazam application yet, it will set you back $5.99 to grab your copy today. If you like music and have an open mind to the music surrounding your daily life, then I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t recommend Shazam to you. You can use it on your iPad, iPod touch, or iPhone.

    I prefer SoundHound. It's been able to identify my songs in about 4 seconds. Though I prefer the design of Shazam, SoundHound isn't cluttered with ads and you only have to purchase it once, unlike how Shazam use to be. I payed $3.99 to them once already for an In-App Purchase that doesn't exist anymore.

    I"m a fan of SoundHound too. I downloaded it 3 or 4 years ago when it was called Midomi and was free.

    Another SoundHound fan here. I have both but never use Shazam... I just don't like the interface compared to that of SoundHound.

    I used Shazam for a long time, but I got frustrated one day and sought a new app. Enter SoundHound. SoundHound was much better than previous versions of Shazam, but if these upgrades are true, then maybe the playing field has been leveled.

    I guess you have your own opinion, just like I think your post was a complete waste of time for all of us to read and that it just shows what a complete bitter old lady you are. You probably have that real husky voice from smoking 3 packs a day while sitting at the end of the bar drinking SoCo and cokes ending up in any fat drunks backseat that'll have you. GO COMPLAIN ELSEWHERE!

    Yes just like your comment about my comment was a wast of time.
    To quote a hypocritical jerk: "GO COMPLAIN ELSEWHERE!"
    Now you can go back to shazaming fantastic little backstreet boys songs!

    Dude relax. The name calling is immature and uncalled for. Just let it go.

    I guess your right, you've certainly proven your point. Anyone reading your replys can clearly see that I'm the one who looks like an immature 'douche' and not you.
