Nice to see a vendor supporting older devices. Fact is even the oldest iPodTouch and iPhone is very powerful and should be supported for just about everything. Apple should continue to support old hardware - that is green.

I love shazam , smokes the competition like sound hound out of the water :D

It still can't identify songs by humming them like Soundhound can. I'm happy with Shazam but I occasionally have a song in my head that I'd like to find out what it is by humming it.
