HMV HAS LAUNCHED a new app that enables people to download tracks to their phone – and search for them using album covers.
The free app comes months after the company was taken over by Hilco after going into administration in January.
It enables people to identify a song they are listening to and then buy it, much like the app Shazam and similar apps.
But in an interesting twist, you can also use HMV image search to download an album, just by scanning its cover.
The music retail chain re-opened its Oxford Street store in September.
It re-opened its first store on Henry St in Dublin in September, which was followed by the reopening of three other HMV stores.
