Summer is in full swing! The temperatures are rising, family vacation have commenced and great summer music fills the air. We all have our favorite songs that we love listening to during the summer months. They bring back memories of simpler times and allow us to kick back and relax.
Since music is important to any barbecue, road trip or lying by the pool, we have compiled our top apps to help you take advantage of whatever music comes your way. Take a look at some of our top music apps for summer:
Have you ever been at a restaurant or bar and hear a song and want to know who sings it? There is nothing worse then racking your brain trying to remember the artist and title and having absolutely no idea! This is where Shazam’s genius comes to save the day. The Shazam app allows you to discover, share and explore more music. Here is how it works – when you hear your favorite song on the radio, at a restaurant or anywhere you hear music, open the app and touch the Shazam button. The app will identify the song in as little as one second. It will then allow you to preview or buy the track as well as view extra content. Shazam is available to download for free on iTunes and Google Play.
