    Shazam Shazam allows Motorola Backflip users to create their own music playlists, store and buy music files, among other functions. This functional app is very easy to use with its user friendly interface. There are more than 2 million songs that can be downloaded from the Shazam music library. It has two major features- My Tags and Tag Now. The first function displays the songs that have been tagged by the user, while the Tag Now enables users to listen to a specific song and display its details like artist, title, album, and the MySpace page of the artist.

    Although it doesn’t allow emailing of the tag list which is a function typical of Android phones, Shazam is still a nice app to have for a Motorola Backflip.
