Shazam Player app for iOS launched

Free app offers alternative to iOS's default music player

Shazam Player, a new music player app for iOS that offers lyrics and other artist-related content, is now available in the App Store.

The free app lets you play music that you've got stored on your iOS device while accessing streaming lyrics - handy if you want to sing along - as well as enabling you to tell your friends what you're listening to via Facebook and Twitter.

Other artist-related information including tour dates and YouTube videos is available to you through the Shazam Player app as well.

It's designed to be an alternative to iOS' default music player and lets you view your library by artist, album or song. It links to iTunes and you can access your existing iTunes playlists and will let you create your own playlists as well.

Andrew Fisher, Shazam's CEO, said: "This is a momentous occasion for the company as it is the first separate app we've introduced since the launch of the Shazam App for iPhone in 2008.

"With the Shazam Player App we are staying true to our core music fans by enabling them to experience their own music libraries in a more engaging and social way."
