Shazam is well-known and quite popular music apps which can be used for free. It helps a listener to enjoy new songs everywhere he goes. When you hear the music, you will get information about a musician regardless of the source of that composition. You can search for a song and tag it when you come across interesting content. You are offered to view related music, read the lyrics, find out the upcoming concerts of that performer, and much more. It is easy to tag music by tapping a button, or applying AUTO option and the app will do it automatically. It continues working under the conditions of a locked device and switching to a different app working simultaneously. In Auto mode, you are allowed to setup Shazam so that it could notify you about tagging the songs you are listening to.

There are useful features that make the app even more convenient and in a class by itself. It shows a map with tags made by other users. And you will see those who are near you. Some songs are supported with lyrics displayed in real time. There are no restrictions for you how to play the tagged song: just a small portion of it or all tagged content continuously.

The app specifies the time of a tag for every found song, also your location can be shown to you meaning that the app is able to display a place where you were at the time the particular song is tagged. It also suggests the links to a YouTube video with a tagged song. The smart software recommends tracks similar to those you choose, and you can try that music.
