TechCrunch claims Apple will purchase leading music recognition service, Shazam. This hasn’t been confirmed but here are just ten reasons such a deal makes sense:
Shazam’s Apple story
Founded in 1999, Shazam first came to prominence on Apple’s platforms as a great tool for iPod users. Years later it became one of the first apps to appear on the App Store, and was one of the first available iPad apps too.
“Shazam was one of the inaugural apps available when the App Store launched nearly two years ago and we are delighted to be available for iPad at launch as well,” said Andrew Fisher, then CEO of Shazam at the time.
