Shazam Updated – Now a must-have app

Written iPhone Music App Review

The popular music identification software for iPhone, Shazam, has just released a major update (v1.5). This update brings with it a host of new features, but there is one stand-out improvement that now makes Shazam a must-have app.

You now have the ability to store “pending tags” for when you don’t have access to the internet. So, if you’re like me and you have a 2G iPhone and/or a pre-paid iPhone without web access, Shazam used to be pretty non-functional. You can now record a soundbite of a song on-the-go, save it, and upload it to get the song info when you do have net access (e.g Wi-Fi).

Other v1.5 changes include increased artist information (lyrics, track & album reviews, other music by same artist), improved tag sorting, iPod Touch support (requires ext. mic) and the inclusion of advertising.
