Shazam updated to v3

Published by at

Shazam, the music identification service, has updated its Symbian client to version 3. The update features a cleaned up user interface. The main screen now only features the large button which triggers audio sampling. The buttons for your previous 'tags' and Shazam music charts have been moved to the top of the screen as tabs, along with a new settings page. The latter gives access to upgrading to the paid version of Shazam, as well as linking to one's Twitter and Facebook accounts. Read on for more details and screenshots.

The settings page also has a 'Check for Upgrade' option. That will hopefully be unnecessary when the latest Ovi Store update is rolled out, which will perform version checking and automatic upgrades. However, in-app upgrades will likely be faster than app-store upgrades, by virtue of not having to pass approval procedures.

You can read our review of the earlier version of Shazam here.

Here are some screenshots from the latest version.
