Shazam is one of my favorite apps. It runs on iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Windows, Nokia and iPad. It’s magic in your hand. It can detect pretty much any piece of music. Great for parties or when you hear that song and don’t know what it is.
A few weeks ago I saw a Shazam logo in a commercial for the ABC show Grey’s Anatomy. I don’t like Grey’s Anatomy but had never seen Shazam use in a commercial so I paused my TV. Got my iphone and Shazam!
I was brought to a new screen with the option of watching two Shazam exclusive sneak peak videos and the music video for the song featured in the commercial on YouTube. I could also purchase the song and season 7 on itunes.
What would an app like this be without sharing possibilities. You can share your discoveries on Twitter and Facebook directly through the Shazam app. No need to copy or paste anything. Very convenient
The exclusive content and sharing model is key and makes it worth using. Do you Shazam? Have you seen it in other commercials?
