Last.fm is a music-listening service that provides recommendations based on user preferences. Rikki Tooley created an SDK in .NET language with the main goal to offer functionality beyond API bindings. This kit is supported in .NET Framework 4.5, Windows 8.0, Windows Phone 8.1, and Windows Phone Silverlight 8. A quickstart guide is available with installation, usage, dependency, and planned features. One of the future plans is to improve identification of poorly tagged tracks using audio fingerprints and the MusicBrainz API. Because music lovers can benefit from the improvement of this feature, Rikki Tooley invites other developers to join the conversation on https://gitter.im/inflatablefriends/lastfm
Senzari, a cutting-edge music technology company, has launched MusicGraph, a knowledge engine for music that is modeled after a semantic network and powered by an API with an architecture that is similar to Facebook Open Graph Protocol.

What's that song? If you're out and about, you might reach for your mobile phone's "name that tune" app, such as Shazam on iPhone.
