Shazam Launches New App, Shazam Encore

Shazam Entertainment today announced the availability of a paid version of their wildly successful Shazam application. For those who don’t know, Shazam allows you to identify music as its playing using your iPhone or iPod touch’s microphone. Shazam Encore [App Store, $4.99] includes several enhancements over the free version such as improved tagging speed, music recommendations, and search. One very cool new feature is the ability to see the top tracks being identified by Shazam.

The company also notes that they will continue to support the original free version of Shazam [App Store], although it will be limited to five tags per month. Current users of the free version will not have a limit.
