I missed this when it came out a few days ago, but here it goes: the WeDJ IOS app from Pioneer DJ now has an iPhone version. It was up for free at the App Store until yesterday, but I just tried and it remains free for now. So grab it before it’s too late!
If you miss it for free, the price won’t break your bank account anyway: the cost per download is USD 0.99.
IOS devices compatibility
The WeDJ app for iPhone is compatible with the following iPhones:
- iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6,
- iPhone 5S
The WeDJ app for iPad supports the following iPads:
- 9.7-inch iPad Pro
- iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2
- iPad Air 2, iPad Air
The WeDJ app is compatible with IOS 8 or later. For our Android friends, no word on an Android version yet, but surely that will join the product line along the way.
Functionality wise, there is much to like. The jog wheels pulse to the rhythm of the music, offering a visual way of beatmatching tracks. There are several performance features such as slip loops, sampler, slicer, combo FX, pad FX and more. For the price, it’s actually a very good alternative to Algoriddim’s djay 2 for iPhone, having many similar features and being comparably easy to use. On the iPad, however, djay Pro wins out, being more feature rich and robust. But WeDJ has just come out so who knows what Pioneer DJ’s plans are to expand the app in the future.
Combining the WeDJ app with a Pioneer DJ DDJ-Wego4 gives a simple to use yet powerful ultra-portable DJ combination that work very well together.
