Just the other day my kid sister called me and yelled “what’s this song?” into the phone. I could vaguely hear a tune, and she yelled out for me to “listen”. She was in a mall and a song she loved, but couldn’t identify, was playing in one of the stores. I couldn’t make it out over the noise, so I made the most of the situation and told her to sing it to me – which she refused to do since she was standing in the middle of a crowded mall at the time!

Shazam is a mobile app that has music recognition technology as its core function. Simply holding the device in the direction of the music and asking it to “tag” the song will allow the user to get the name of the song and artist as well as all kinds of information about it, including lyrics and any videos. This is not the only function of the app since you can also buy the music, sort it into personal categories and send them to friends.

There are currently no other apps that can compare to Shazam. It really is unique and as my sister would attest, very useful. It’s available for iPhone, iPod, Android or Blackberry platforms with no doubt more to come.

The most current version of Shazam is, amazingly, a totally free download. All users of the service will receive relevant advertising periodically through their device, but this never interferes with the app or its use.

If you’re ready to have every song you love in one convenient location, and all for free, then download Shazam today!
