There are two notable additions here, as well as a lovely aesthetic refresh that reminds us why Windows Phone is so developer-friendly. First is the addition of local tags, which uses your location to determine which songs are being most commonly looked up.

(Coincidentally, the song at the top of the list, Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lineswas what I Shazam’d earlier this morning while on my way to work.)

There’s also a new “Tag Now” option to pin to the Home Screen, which allows users to tag a song with one tap from outside the app.

Other Shazam features are present, such as TV tagging, lyrics integration, links to purchase songs from Xbox Music or Nokia Music, lockscreen background support and social sharing.

Shazam recently released a new iPad version with background tagging and a brand new interface.
