LyricFind Announces New & Improved Web Service v2.0

December 6, 2010  |  Posted In : 

API suite provides faster response times, increased functionality, and LyricFind Top 25 Charts

December 6, 2010 – Today at SF MusicTech, LyricFind, the world’s leader in legal lyric solutions, announced that it has launched LyricFind Web Service v2.0. The API suite now offers LyricFind clients faster response times, improved search capabilities, and new metadata and lyric chart options.  These upgrades allow clients to easily and seamlessly integrate lyric content into their websites and mobile applications, giving clients more options to search for song lyrics so they can find exactly what tracks they want to hear, sing along with, or purchase.

LyricFind Web Service v2.0 has five APIs, which are available in both Basic and Premium versions. Premium incorporates Rovi’s All Music Guide (AMG) data access, providing more robust search and display capabilities.

  1. Search Lyrics: Enhanced for faster responses on a wider range of criteria, such as artist, song title, album, and words within song lyrics from LyricFind’s database of millions of titles.
     
  2. Lyric Display: Full display of lyrics with associated artist, track and album information.
     
  3. Metadata: Provides access to track level data and track listings. For example, this API can retrieve a list of all available lyrics by a particular artist, or retrieve track-level data (such as a snippet, artist and song name.
     
  4. LyricFind Charts: A new API, providing charts of the top LyricFind 25 artists and lyrics  across the LyricFind ecosystem.
     
  5. Lyric Submission: This API provides capability for end users to update lyrics information. All submitted lyric data is then verified by LyricFind’s content team before it is added to the database.
     

All of the APIs now include a “Parental Advisory” option that can be applied as a site may require. In addition, clients can now incorporate their own track identifiers into the LyricFind web service for more complete integration of LyricFind’s data with the client’s product. LyricFind WebService 2.0 is available both in JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) and standard XML output.

Companies that are interested in incorporating LyricFind Web Service v2.0 into their sites can email sales@lyricfind.com or call 323-275-1163.

    This new update crashes my iphone4. Do you have any suggestions?

    • LyricFind says:

      Hi Will,

      We should have an update fixing this available soon (it’s a pretty obscure, undocumented behavior occurring on some devices), but a quick fix is to simply uninstall and reinstall the app – that’ll get you back up and running right away.

      Hope this helps!
