For instance, if you were to hear a song on the radio, and just for the life of you cannot remember who sung it, or what the song was called. Even after asking all your office buddies, who still have no clue who it is, you can always ask Shazam.
You record a small snippet and Shazam does the rest. 90 percent of the time It will return to you with the correct song name, and artist.
Shazam did infact announce today that they had processed 1 billion song requests, and have over 75million users. They also hope and predict that this will rise to 100 million by the end of the year.
