Today Algoriddim has finally launched djay Pro for iPhone, after being initially available for iPad and Mac. You will need IOS 10 to run it and an iPhone 5, although that running it on the tiny screen of the 5 will be a bit of a pain, specially in 4 deck mode.
The professional version of the djay app has all the features of the Mac and iPad version, and makes best of use of a few innovative features on the iPhone 6s and 7: haptic feedback and 3D touch.
In the words of Algoriddim:
Haptic Feedback: djay Pro provides unique haptic feedback on the waveforms and jog wheels so you can literally feel the beats while scratching and scrubbing the music.
3D Touch: With 3D Touch you can precisely set a cue point by force touching the waveforms. You can also tap and hold songs in djay Pro’s music library for an instant preview.
Apart from the haptic feedback and 3D touch support, djay Pro for iPad supports 4 channels with simultaneous 4 waveform display.
The integration with Spotify is also there, making it possible to mix tracks directly from your Spotify library. This is a killer feature and can be a life saver when you are playing out and you get a request you absolutely can’t refuse…but you don’t have it in your collection.
There is also a video mode with rather impressive specs:
The app supports Apple Watch (yes that is still for sale) if you happen to have one. And use it.
With this release, Algoriddim consolidates their dominance on the DJ app market. No other vendor has such an extensive offering, with apps for IOS and Android, tablets, phones and Mac. the Pro version now supports all modern iPhones (from 5 up) and iPads, including the gigantic iPad Pro.
I will be diving into the iPhone version soon, and since I’m getting an iPhone 7 soon I will be able to try out those flashy haptic and 3D things :-).
So what do you think of djay pro for iPhone? Worth the cost? Or is djing on an iphone just kids stuff? Comment below!
