Shazam has added social networking and sharing features to its popular music discovery application for the iPhone and iPod touch. Shazam allows iOS device users to identify and tag songs simply by listening to a few seconds through the device’s built-in mic. A list of tagged songs is saved within the app with links to the iTunes Store, track and album reviews, artist biographies and discographies and song lyrics. Shazam 4.0 adds a new Shazam Friends feature, allowing users to share their tagged tracks with friends, see what their friends are tagging, and look up and purchase tracks directly from friends’ lists. Shazam Friends integrates with Facebook to help users easily locate other users who are sharing their tagged music lists. Shazam for the iPhone and iPod touch is available from the App Store in two versions: the free version of Shazam allows users to tag up to five tracks per month while Shazam Encore ($6) provides unlimited tagging. A separate iPad version is also available but has not yet been updated with the new Shazam Friends feature.
