MusicSmart Press Kit
MusicSmart shows credits and additional details for albums and songs available in your Apple Music, Spotify, or local music library.
It gathers music knowledge from different sources like Genius, Discogs, and MusicBrainz, aggregating them into an easy-to-use app. It offers even more than traditional liner notes used to have, with further details about the artist, popular songs from the album's collaborators, samples, interpolations and remixes used, and movies/TV shows in which they appeared.
The app offers a handy Action Extension on iOS and iPadOS that you can use from the Music app to read the details about the currently playing song. And it integrates with Shazam, so you can easily see the liner notes of songs playing around you.
