Shazam is no longer the only app that can listen to music and tell you what song is playing, but it's still a pretty popular app. That's why it was so upsetting that Shazam was obscenely ugly. Thankfully, in the just released update Shazam has gotten a complete UI overhaul, and it's kind of #HOLOYOLO.

The app scales to all size screens and has buttons in all the right places, if you know what I mean. The old app had a very gross Froyo vibe with those tabs at the top and the legacy menu button of shame. The new UI is worlds better.

Shazam is the free version of the app, so it has ads. Shazam Encore is the "premium version" and costs almost $6. It hasn't been updated yet. Yes, the app people paid for is still super-ugly. Maybe the update is incoming? Check out the old UI below.

Update: Shazam Encore just got the UI update, as well. That's a relief.
