For a big, bald genie like Shazam, keeping up with the latest trends can be a struggle. But—crap, this is embarrassing.

Ahem. For a music identification and discovery app like Shazam, it's important to keep up with whatever's currently trending. So the latest version has received a brand new redesign that focuses on just that. The new homescreen places an emphasis on what's popular, what people are listening to in your city, and what your friends consider dope (through Facebook support).

I know, you stopped reading at "redesign." It's the big one, so take a look.

How FAB.
