Mobile music tagging is so 2007! What the kids really want these days is to learn the words of the songs they’re tagging, which is why Shazam has announced its first corporate acquisition, bringing synchronized lyrics to its iOS apps -- well, at least the paid ones, anyway.

Anyone with the right tools and a little coding knowhow can probably make an iOS game without too much trouble.

A new Apple patent application was discovered by AppleInsider this week that details an iPhone/iPad app that would help users better coordinate their busy schedules revolving around moviegoing.
