    Shazam Available for BlackBerry

    Advertisement








    Shazam is now available for BlackBerry, you can get it in the new App World or see more on RIM's site here. Thanks to PinStacker Ge who asked about it in this post that let me know it was out and to amsirron23 who posted it here.

    In the App World it is shown as free, but upon download it is actually free for 2 months then $4.99 or free with limited features(limits not specified). I think it would be better if it was clear from the start that it was a free trial and if they made the purchase price easily known as well. Reviews on App World say it's not working so well on the Storm but it works great on my 8330 Curve and you Storm users have time to test it before you buy it.







    So as you can see from the screen shots, you can identifiy music, read reviews, share the tag and more. Be sure to read the terms and conditions as there are limits to how many per month you are permitted to use or they may terminate your service

    I played with this for a bit this morning and seems to work pretty well. I listen to some less well known music so I will have to see how it does with recognizing tunes from my favorite stations. So it's easy to use just click the icon, menu/tag and it listens or you can configure in the options to automatically tag on application launch. It listens for about 10 seconds then tries to match. If no match found and the song is still playing it will let you keep trying.



    Every song you tag is saved to your tag list, these tags can then be reviewed later, shared, used to purchase, get more info, find similar style music, or just deleted. So what are you waiting for? Go check it out!

    I tried to get it to identify a song I was streaming on my BB but that wouldn't work It stopped the stream so it could listen.

    Just in case... if Shazam ISNT showing up in your list. Use this link: http://appworld.blackberry.com/webst...ent/933/Shazam

    FYI - The link only works if you access it via SMS and you must use the "Open In App World" option rather than the traditional "Get Lnk"

    I believe it should be unlimited for the length of the trial period. After that, I have no idea what the limits are. They don't really specify.

    I'm bemused as to why it's a trial for the BlackBerry when the Android and iPhone versions are freeware.

    I might have to... do something about that.

    Lol, I like pandora too, but they do totally different things, can't really compare them

    One plays music, the other listens to it

    I completely AGREE. Let me know when it's free like those damn iPhone users!

    Enjoy the trial. I think they need some budget to give us better service, however
    And god creates the BlackBerry.
