Samsung? I know they've been overloading the market as of late but this time around it's all about the music. This is certainly no flagship or top-tier smartphone, and will instead be a budget aimed device -- probably for teens wanting to have some exceptional audio quality from their smartphone. Lets take a look at the leaked details below.
Kickstarter campaign earlier this year that raised nearly a million dollars. Well it's available now and shipping to consumers after a successful campaign so we're taking a look.
Motorola seems like they have a viable solution to that problem, though, with their new S11-FLEX HD wireless headphones.
Shazam, the popular music-tagging app for Android, iPhone, Windows Phone and BlackBerry, announced today that its hit 250 million users with around two million new users joining every week. To celebrate, the app has been updated to include TV tagging for U.S. users, which allows you to find out what music is playing on your favorite shows, as well as other useful info.
Beats Audio. I'd be lying if I said I was surprised, as I wasn't too sold on the idea to begin with. In what HTC is calling “a realignment of their business agreement” they've sold 25% of their 51% stake back to Beats, and now is no longer the majority stockholder.
Spotify, and even Google Play Music here in the US. This week they've let a few lucky users enjoy an early beta preview of their new Music Hub. We first mentioned this back in May, but now we've received our own hands-on time with the music app for Android.
Jelly Bean, and in case you did Google's released their own Shazam or SoundHound like feature called Sound Search -- or Google Ears. This music listening and tagging service has been built into Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but thanks to a few devs from XDA can be used on all ICS devices and ROMS.
Google Play right now and can be downloaded to your device. The new app has full support for Android 4.0 and a new slide out navigation pane. The app also offers cross fade/gapless playback settings for when you want to listen to lots of music with no interruption.
Shazam. Have you tried SoundHound yet? I've been using it instead of Shazam for well over a year for its top notch user interface, options, lyrics, and outright faster music recognition. Today however they just made their app even better by updating to their all new version 5.0 that brings tons of changes. Below are a few screenshots showing their improved user interface and brand new features.
