Another two handy IPhone apps – Shazam and Stanza

I’ve got a couple more IPhone apps to add to my previous list of apps.

Shazam

This is the IPhone version of the popular phone service. Just open up the app, tap on “tag music” and it’ll have a crack at identifying whatever music you’re listening to. Seems to work well so far, although I haven’t tested it with anything obscure or in noisy areas.

Conceptually this is pretty close to what we’re working on here at Pixsta, but with audio rather than pictures.

Stanza

A free E-Book reader.  You can get access to lots of public domain content, as well as select paid content from some publishers. Very handy for reading those stubborn classics on a cramped tube train. Currently reading a Bertrand Russell book that I otherwise would never get round to.

    If you (like me) enjoy gritty badly written crime pulp then I recommend downloading “caught stealing” from stanza’s randomhouse free section.
