Lyrics site MetroLyrics has launched a new iPhone app through its parent company CBS Interactive. The free app went live on Apple’s App Store today.
So what’s new? “Lyric videos, millions of tracks, synchronize lyrics, scrobble to last.fm and much more,” promises the new app’s listing. ”Find lyrics to all your favorite songs, and use the map charts feature (populated by users) to see the most popular songs in your city and around the globe.”
MetroLyrics says its website currently attracts more than 40m unique users a month. The site – acquired by CBS in October 2011 – will be hoping for a boost from the new app.
However, it faces competition on the App Store not just from pure lyrics apps, but also from music identification apps like Shazam and SoundHound, which have integrated lyrics into their offerings.
