SHAZAM issued a press release at the MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS in BARCELONA, SPAIN that claimed its media-engagement app now has over 300 million users worldwide -- with a significant update to the app that should debut in the next few weeks. The new update, for iPADS and ANDROID tablets, includes a completely redesigned home screen, an improved layout for SHAZAM tag results for both TV and music, and a new way to browse what your friends have been tagging.
"The number of SHAZAM users and their level of engagement continue to grow rapidly," SHAZAM CEO ANDREW FISHER said. "We now have over 300 million Shazamers globally with an increasing proportion of whom use our app on their iPAD or ANDROID tablet devices to interact with television. This new version of SHAZAM optimizes discovery, engagement, transactions and exploration in a tablet environment. It's the most efficient way to experience more of the media around you whether you are in your home or in any other environment throughout the world."
