Shazam Encore app review: the best way to identify music within a matter of seconds 2021



This iPhone and iPad app to find new music is truly the best way to identify music and TV shows within a matter of seconds, with full integration of services like iTunes, Rdio, Spotify, and Deezer enabling you to easily find and listen to the full versions of tracks you discover.

I think that this is an absolutely fantastic idea for an app, and it reminds me a lot of the old telephone service that you could call for a dollar or so to have any random song identified. At the time, I found that technology amazing, so it’s impressive to see it ported to iOS for everyday use.

I’m also very impressed by the way the developer has incorporated so many other different services into the app, so once you’ve identified a song or TV show you can immediately begin hearing more from it in a variety of mediums.

With this Shazam app review, you will see just how easy it is to identify songs with this app. Who knows, the Shazam encore song identifier app might just become your mose used iPhone app.
