Shazam has launched a complete redesign of its app for iPad fans, including a new discovery home screen, an improved layout for Shazam tag results for both TV and music, and a new way to browse what a users friends have been watching and listening to.
The updated app also launches an exclusive new Auto-Tagging feature that helps users to recognize any media playing around them, including music, television programs, and TV advertisements -- automatically.
For iPad, the redesigned Shazam App gives users new streams of activity, enabling them to see in real time and explore the songs people are listening to right now and, in the US, the TV shows people are currently watching. Shazam is also bringing to its iPad experience for the first time two popular features - lightning-fast tagging that enables recognition in as little as one second and full-screen LyricPlay lyrics, which plays the lyrics on-screen in time with the music.
The new app adds a new interactive mapping feature enabling music fans to explore what people are listening to in any city around the world.
"We have seen amazing growth and expansion in both the number of people who use Shazam on iPad as well as their level of engagement," said Rich Riley, Shazam CEO. "With more than 300 million Shazamers globally who use the app more than ten million times each day to discover more about the music and television they are interested in, we have created an exciting and engaging new iPad experience for existing and new users."
The new version of Shazam for iOS is a universal app, so it works across iPad 2 and 3, iPad Mini, iPhone and iPod touch.
