Shazam My BlackBerry Storm, Identify that Tune!

Shazam, the app that was featured in one of Apple’s “solving life’s dilemmas one app at a time” ad back in 2008, has been officially ported to the BlackBerry Storm. The Shazam app for the BlackBerry Storm, which is available for smartphone owners in the US of A, Canada and the UK, comes with full SurePress touchscreen support and a price tag of $4.99/ £5 (one time fee). You could of course go for the free Shazam version, but you should know that the free version is pretty basic – basic as in it comes with limited functionality.

Shazam CEO, Andrew Fisher, comments: “Since launching on BlackBerry this April, we have maintained our status as one of the most frequently downloaded applications on App World. BlackBerry Storm users have voiced their eagerness for Shazam and this type of demand highlights the worldwide popularity Shazam has achieved through our mobile music discovery application. We’re thrilled to continue delivering the applications and features our customers want.”


In case you were wondering how the Shazam app works, here’s the low down: whenever you hear a tune that you like very much, but no matter what you do you cannot figure out who is singing it, just place your iPhone next to the speakers (rather tricky if you are in a shopping center and the speakers are several feet above your head). Shazam will then proceed to analyze the audio stream and will provide you with all the necessary information that was driving you crazy: song title, band name, where to go and download that tune.

“BlackBerry Storm smartphone users will be able to choose from a free, basic version of Shazam with limited functionality or a full-featured version for $4.99 or £5 (one-off fee depending on location). The full-featured version includes unlimited Tags, Tag charts, recommendations for similar tracks, biographies of artists, reviews of tagged music, discographies and the option to buy and share discovered music. Shazam is currently offering a free, seven-day trial of the full-featured version,” stated the official Shazam press release.

If you would like to get Shazam from BlackBerry Storm, you can download it from BlackBerry App World or by accessing Shazam’s mobile site via your smartphone.
