If you remember the days of physical mixtapes you’d make for friends, that special someone or just because you enjoyed having your favorite tunes in one place pre MP3 player day then you’re OLD! Just kidding, but it is something that today’s generation knows nothing of. Well Sharetapes takes the idea of a mixtape and gives it a digital twist. They’re physical cards that contain NFC (Near Field Communication) chips or QR codes that allow users to play them on smartphone and tablets.
So using existing platforms like Spotfiy, YouTube and more to make personalized playlists, you then create your own Sharetape(s) by hitting record on the website here and then share with friends and family. You can share with those by simply tapping with NFC if they have that function available on their Android, Windows or Blackberry device or scan the Sharetape using a QR code reader app. And you can even just share the site’s web address on social media for all to enjoy your mixtape! Get a pack of 5 Sharetapes for $6.99.
