Gracenote launched the Developer program, making its music APIs and SDKs available for companies and individuals who want to integrate them within their apps.
Here’s what’s it all about (from the press release):
Developers can now access Gracenote’s Mobile Client featuring Gracenote MusicID, an audio fingerprinting technology that can be integrated into mobile Apps to identify artists, albums and tracks by simply holding a phone to the music-in a cafe, on the street or whenever the moment strikes. To date, Gracenote MusicID has powered some of the world’s most popular music recognition Apps and services, from Soundtracking and Sony TrackID to musiXmatch and Rhapsody SongMatch.
Gracenote’s Developer program supports a variety of development platforms, including mobile, desktop and web APIs, all of which enable the recognition of music from text lookups, CDs, digital files and audio captured with a mobile device, while returning descriptive meta-data for more than 2,000 music genres and sub-genres, artist origins, and more than 100 music moods. Additionally, developers can also tap into Gracenote’s vast commercial source of Album Cover Art, artist biographies and other related content…
