Shazam Music-Recognition App Now on the New iPad
Shazam wants to give you another way to sing along with your favorite songs. On Friday, a version of the popular music-recognition app was announced for the new iPad.
Shazam for iPad [iTunes link] is available now in the App Store — and it’s free.
The latest iPad app includes Retina display graphics and its LyricPlay feature that was released for the iPhone in January. With LyricPlay you can view the lyrics to songs on your iPad and follow along as the song plays. The app contains the lyrics of around 20,000 of the most popular songs on Shazam. It also gives you a list of artists’ upcoming tour dates and connects to relevant YouTube videos.
Earlier this month, the company showed off its latest iPhone app (version 5.0), saying it’s quicker than ever and can recognize music, television and advertisements in a second.
