Press Release   •   Sep 10, 2013 14:30 EDT

“Since 2007, Apple has revolutionized the way in which we think about phones, transforming them from a simple device used to talk with our friends and family to what is now a pocket-sized super computer through which we can access information about virtually anything, anywhere, and we at Shazam are proud to have played a role as one of iTunes’s most downloaded apps since its launch.

Apple has played a crucial role in growing Shazam’s global user base to more than 350 million, as many Shazam fans use their iPhones and iPads to engage with their favorite content, including music, TV shows and advertisements. The launch of iOS7 is very exciting for Shazam, as its new features improve the mobile experience with a modern design and enhanced user experience. Now, Shazamers will be updated automatically, keeping pace with all the latest innovations.

Additionally, iOS 7 offers people improved multi-tasking, and peer-to-peer connectivity, making discovery and sharing a better experience.

Shazam has been pleased to work with Apple since the early days of the iPhone, and we look forward to enabling an extraordinary era of media discovery and engagement that the new operating system will make possible. Shazam is also developing exciting new features that take advantage of the enhancements included in the operating system, which we’ll announce shortly as they become available in the Shazam App.”
