iPhone Shazam gets background listening, MyGlass iOS reappears
<a href="https://itunes.apple.com/app/shazam/id284993459">Shazam</a>'s iPhone app got an update on Thursday that brings the Auto Shazam function already present in the iPad version to Apple's bestselling smartphone. Now, Shazam continuously recognizes popular music and television playing around a user, even when the phone is locked or when a user leaves the Shazam app. When a user activates the app, it will then display what it has most recently tagged. <br /><br />When a device is asleep and Shazam recognizes a track, it will temporarily wake the display in order to show the tagged song or content. In addition to Auto Shazam, version 7.3.0 adds the ability to share Shazam Tags with friends on WhatsApp, as well as to pin Shazam tags to Pinterest boards. Users can also share Shazam tags via iMessage.<br />
