Όπως δήλωσε ο Andrew Fisher, CEO του Shazam:
"Since our launch on the App Store, Shazam has achieved a huge following with iPhone and iPod touch users and is now one of the most popular music apps in the world."
"We have listened to our iPhone and iPod touch users and have created a new app which answers their requests to take them on an enhanced music journey that will change the way music lovers experience and learn about music."
Το Shazam Encore διαθέτει αρκετά νέα και αποκλειστικά χαρακτηριστικά όπως:
* Improved speed performance: making it even quicker for users to tag tracks and learn more about their music.
* Music recommendations: users can discover other music similar to the track that's been tagged to enhance their music collection and knowledge.
* Find what's hot and popular: Shazam music charts generated by millions of other Shazamers can be accessed to help users keep up to date with the new tracks and players in the music scene.
* Search music: easily find music by artist, album or track from over 8 million songs.
* Drive and Tag: Shazam automatically enters into car mode when the iPhone is placed in an in-car dock to make it simple to discover what's playing on the radio even when driving.
Η δωρεάν έκδοση του Shazam θα συνεχίσει να διατίθεται μέσω του App store με την διαφορά ότι οι νέοι χρήστες του θα έχουν περιορισμένα tags (5 ανά μήνα!). Οι υπάρχων χρήστες θα συνεχίσουν να χρησιμοποιούν την free version χωρίς περιορισμούς...
Τα νέα χαρακτηριστικά τα οποία είναι διαθέσιμα τόσο στο Shazam όσο και στο Shazam Encore είναι:
* Share a music moment: Shazamers can send their Tags as a Tweet to followers; to their Facebook mini-feed or even as a Postcard to friends so they can add the Tag to their own collection in Shazam, as well as preview and buy direct in iTunes.
* Track the music journey: Tags now appear on Maps inside Shazam, along with the Tag history, to remind users where they were when they captured the moment.
* Learn more about the music: users can read track and album reviews and artist biographies, plus see other music from the same artist and view song lyrics.
* Personalise Tags: make it easy to capture the moment by taking and adding a photo or attach an existing picture to their Tags. These shots are then seamlessly added to the iPhone photo album.
* Store pending Tags: even when users don't have data connection, they can still capture the music moment. The pending Tag can be sent later when they are back in data coverage or WiFi connectivity.
