Shazam's Music Explorer Database=Cool

Shazam is the very popular service for several smartphones and other devices and that will quickly identify a song (artist, track title, etc) from millions of songs in their database. Simply point the phone at a speaker and in about 10 seconds the answer appears.

What often goes unnoticed is Shazam's searchable music database that contains data about over 8 million tracks. It's definitely worth a look. You can also take a peak at what tracks are currently being 'tagged' by users. Shazam also provides charts of the most popular tracks. Archives are also available. Here's a look at what the artist page for No Doubt looks like.

Perhaps the 'coolest' web site feature is the Music Explorer. It's a very 'social'.

Music Explorer is powered and updated by the real iDing activities of over 20 million users and provides you with a diversity of tracks or artists you might be interested in, based on the starting point of your journey.

Explorer gives you this as a 'map' of related artists, tracks or users based on how many other members have tagged these as well as your original track or artist.

    Reed Smith's national manager of research services, John DiGilio, returns to FreePint to review some of the most popular mobile applications for legal research. As smart technology infiltrates the practice of law, research is becoming increasingly untethered and being conducted more on-the-go than onsite. John takes a hard and practical look at the apps that are disrupting and transforming the way attorneys conduct research. By applying the same stringent criteria across to each review, he hopes to empower librarians and information professionals to lead the transition to mobile rather than being caught behind its curve.
