Last.fm is really handy for finding new music, and Shazam is great for finding information on that great song you just heard for the first time. Separately, they are essential for any music lover. Now they're becoming even better by joining forces and crossing functionality. Shazam has just updated both Shazam Encore [App Store, $4.99] and (SHAZAM)RED [App Store, $4.99] to incorporate features from Last.fm for songs you tag.
Popular music streaming app, Last.fm has just hit version 2.0. We reported earlier this month on a "leaked" video showing off a vastly improved user interface along with a few new features. Since the leak, the guys at Last.fm continued work on the interface to deliver a stunning combo of useful features and awesome eye-candy. You can read more about the development of 2.0 as well as catch a video walkthrough of the new interface at the Last.fm blog. Last.fm for iPhone is available for free in the App Store.
A "leaked" video of a yet-unreleased version of the popular Last.fm iPhone application has made its way onto the web. The video shows that version 2.0 has seen some significant improvements in features, functionality, and aesthetics compared to its predecessor.
