MIXTAPES WITH A DIGITAL TWIST


Sharetapes are credit-card sized tapes that link to digital content. Reviving the much loved “mixtape” with a modern twist for today’s internet connected world, Sharetapes allow you to share your favourite online playlists from services like YouTube, Spotify, 8tracks, Pandora and more – just like you could with cassette and VHS tapes before the digital revolution.

How do I play a Sharetape?





Does the receiver need a special app to play a Sharetape?

Services like Spotify require the receiver to have a subscription to play on mobile devices. Using YouTube or 8tracks does not require the receiver to have a special app, except a QR code reader for devices without NFC.
