Shazam is an app that belongs on every Android smartphone. The program is intelligent and practical: With a simple click you “tag” a song that is playing on the radio or TV, and that you are not familiar with. Triggered by the click Shazam will initialize a search. In 99 percent of all cases Shazam comes up with the title and artist.

Impressive: You can do some shopping right from within the app – either in the Amazon MP3 Store or in the Google Music Store. If you first like to listen to a song on a trial basis Shazam can connect with a Spotify or rdio premium account, so you can check out the complete song. Additional information is provided as well: Artist bios, YouTube references or friend lists, which let you view their tags.

Shazam includes great technology. You never need to miss a song again – and thanks to lyric streaming you can even sing along.
