Song Buddy is a comprehensive and practical piece of software that provides you with a simple means of looking up for artist profiles, browsing their pictures, reading about them on Wikipedia and getting redirected to the YouTube channel, while listening to their songs using Windows Media Player or iTunes.
Before using the application, you need to make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet so it can be able to retrieve images and other available information about the current artist.
After pressing the Play button, you will notice that Song Buddy automatically detects the artist and displays the name of the current song along with basic details about the singer. This way, you can preview images of your favorite artist, find out when and where they're playing concerts and subscribe to their YouTube or Spotify channel. Additionally, it displays all the released tracks that are related to the current song.
Furthermore, the application enables you to search for your favorite artist by name and allows you to access the artist’s homepage, Wikipedia for basic information, network profiles such as Facebook or Twitter, as well as YouTube channels. Also, Song Buddy will suggest similar artists to those that you are listening to.
Because the application works silently in your Notification Center area and integrates seamlessly with iTunes and Windows Media Player, it will display notification messages only when you start playing your favorite songs. Otherwise, it won’t disturb you from your daily work.
In case you do not want to receive any pop-up notification windows, you can access the Settings window and disable the option. This way, you can access the application only when you are interested to find out more about the current artist or playing song.
To conclude, Song Buddy proves to be a useful and steady solution when it comes to displaying information about the currently playing artist, along with Facebook or Twitter profiles and YouTube channels.
