** Featured on MacStories, 9to5Mac, MacMagazine & more! **
MusicSmart shows credits and additional details for albums and songs available in your Apple Music, Spotify, or local music library.
Discover who makes your favorite songs, from writers and producers to engineers and other collaborators. Go further with details about the artist, popular songs from the album's collaborators, samples, interpolations and remixes used, and movies/TV shows in which they participated.
MusicSmart integrates with your music library* and gathers music knowledge from different sources, aggregating them into an easy-to-use app. It also offers a handy Action Extension on iOS and iPadOS that you can use from the Music app to read the details about the currently playing song. You can also use Shazam to see the liner notes of songs playing around you.

*** The Action Extension only works with albums and songs from Apple Music at the moment. But you can use the main app to get the same details about your local, non-Apple Music albums and Spotify albums.
