Shazam is one of those applications that is essential for iOS. You have probably been in a situation where you are in a bar or shop, or even listening to the radio, and a song that you like starts playing but you don't know its name and you don't have any way of finding out. Now, thanks to this application for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch this will no longer happen to you.
Identify the song that is playing with Shazam.
Musical identification on your iPhone
As soon as you start the application it will start listening to everything that is playing nearby, and after a few seconds, it will send a recording to the Shazam servers so that they can identify the song and return a result. This operation requires an active Internet connection, whether by Wi-Fi or mobile data. Once you have the result you will be able to buy the song in the iTunes Store, search for its video on YouTube or share your discovery on Facebook or Twitter.
It also allows you to have a friends list to find out what songs they like and their latest discoveries. Furthermore, if you are bored of your own music or you want to find out what is being listened to, you can view different lists from all over the world and even read the app's blog, where you will always find recommendations.
