New Shazam tablet apps coming; service cracks 300M users
Music ID service Shazam has announced forthcoming iPad and Android tablet app updates. In both cases users will get redesigned homescreens, new layouts for tag results, and a new method for browsing what friends have been tagging. Similarly, new activity streams show what people in general are tagging, including TV in the US. An added mapping feature shows what people are listening to in a particular city.<br /><br />Shazam is also carrying over <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/279856==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/04/03/shazam.posts.big.update.with.speed.as.focus/" rel='nofollow'>accelerated song recognition</a> from its phone apps, along with fullscreen lyrics. Some other planned changes include streamlined sharing, and automatic resubmission in cases where a tablet has poor network reception. On iOS, the new Shazam app will be universal, instead of requiring separate iPhone and iPad versions.

Shazam is promising both the iOS and Android updates in "coming weeks." The company meanwhile claims to have reached over 300 million users, worldwide and across all platforms.
