Seeing (RED) – iOS music apps support a worthy cause

Download from iTunes App Storegarageband logo reddjay2 logo redWhile it is very easy to take a pop at some of the larger business structures that seem to run our world, it is always great when they get behind what is obviously a good cause. This week, Apple are making a big effort in support of (RED), the organisation founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver back in 2006 and aimed at supporting the fight against AIDS.

To highlight World AIDS Day, both Apple, and a number of App developers, are selling (RED) branded versions of their apps – or IAPs within the apps – with 100% of the proceeds going towards the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

Garageband is going (RED) for the next few days... to help raise funds for the fight against AIDS.

In terms of iOS music apps, both Garageband itself and Algoriddim’s djay 2 are involved in the project. Garageband is (RED) themed today and, until December 7th, there is an IAP option (UK£0.69) to purchase an exclusive collection of the 300 instrument loops in various genres. Not only is this good value for money but it is also going to a good cause…

In djay 2, there is a free (RED) skin provided and, priced at UK£2.49, a (RED) sample pack containing all sorts of DJ-friendly samples for blending into your next (virtual) disc spinning session. Incidentally, this update to djay 2 also adds the ability to access audio files directly from iCloud Drive when used under iOS8.

There are other, non-music iOS apps that are supporting (RED) over the next few days so check out the App Store and see if there is anything you need that can also help the fund raising.
