(Shazam)RED Makes the App Store a Slightly Kinder Place

The (RED) movement allows companies to give a little back while also selling their products, by branding versions of their goods with the (RED) logo, name, and color. In exchange, a portion of the price of said products is donated to the fight against HIV and AIDS in Africa. Apple is on board with the program, with (RED) iPods, and now one of its iPhone developers, Shazam, has thrown its weight behind the cause, too.

Shazam is the first mobile app to endorse the program. (Shazam)RED is available on the App Store now for $4.99, which is the same price that Shazam Encore retails for. Read More about (Shazam)RED Makes the App Store a Slightly Kinder Place
