Shazam Goes (RED)


Shazam has linked with with (RED), joining several iconic brands including American Express, Apple, Bugaboo, Converse, Dell, Emporio Armani, Gap, Hallmark and Starbucks, to launch the first iPhone App to help fight the spread of AIDS in Africa.

With the same fantastic features as the recently launched Shazam Encore, (Shazam)RED Special Edition lets you show off your support of (RED) with every song you tag, along with displaying updated content about the impact of (RED). (Shazam)RED can be identified on the App Store by its unique and specially designed red-colored product icon.

(Shazam)RED is not a free upgrade, and is offered at the same $4.99 cost as Shazam Encore. However, for each application purchased, 20% of the price is contributed to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. (RED) funds are directed to HIV and AIDS programs in Africa.

Even if you’ve already purchased Shazam Encore, or you are still using the previous free version of Shazam, now is a great time to step up to (Shazam)RED, gaining several new app features while also making a difference in the world.

You can find (Shazam)RED in the iPhone App Store here.

  • Can i use the iPod Touch mic headset with the shazam app.I wanted to know if i could use the mic headset that you can buy from the apple online store and would it work for the shazam app on the iPod Touch 2G.

    • Yes you can use the Apple stereo headset which has the small microphone built into the cord. The app just has to "hear" the music, using the iPhone's mic, or or some external mic for the iPod (both 1st & 2nd generation iPod touch are supported).
