Shazam iPhone update brings simplification

Shazam iPhone update brings simplification

An update to the Shazam app for iPhone this week adds a bit more content-led action to the ecosystem while the entire layout earns a much more simplified look. This update to the system is part of what the Chief Product Officer at Shazam, Daniel Danker, suggests makes Shazam much more in-tune with its goals: simplicity in design and consumer experience. In other words - Shazam doesn't do one whole heck of a lot more between yesterday and today, but it's a lot easier to understand what it does do.

Forgotify makes it easy to give never-played Spotify songs a little love

Forgotify makes it easy to give never-played Spotify songs a little love

In December, Spotify launched an #undiscovered hashtag campaign to draw attention to the songs in its library that have never been played.

Maleficent trailer 2 haunts with Lana Del Ray and Google Play

When you open Beats Music - after you've signed up or signed in - you're not going to find a playlist of music you've listened to a thousand times before. Beats Music is a system that's pushed to create a music-driven experience. Instead of being just a conduit through which music is served, Beats Music makes a real effort to be a real bartender of the drinks that are musical tracks. Beats Music is not an MP3 player, it's a virtual DJ.
