Being algoriddim‘s video maker, I’ve followed every single iteration of their product range. The first djay was a really smart app, but then it has evolved across multiple platforms to become djay Pro, a fully featured 4 deck app running on iPads. Now that was quite a squeeze, so when they told me that the next video I’d be making would be djay Pro for iPhone (with nothing taken out), I was a tad apprehensive. But I needn’t have worried, because as ever algoriddim has managed to pull off what I usually expect to be tricky. djay Pro for iPhone is out, and it’s really good.
2016 Apple Design Award Winning App Arrives on iPhone 7 with Haptic Waveforms, 3D Touch, and Accessibility Integration
(MUNICH, Germany) – December 21, 2016 – Algoriddim, creators of the world’s best selling DJ app with over 20 million downloads, today released djay Pro for iPhone. The acclaimed music app and winner of two Apple Design Awards has been redesigned from the ground up for iPhone 7, fully leveraging its unique capabilities such as haptic feedback and 3D Touch. Seamlessly integrated with Spotify, djay Pro allows users to mix millions of songs instantly and provides a suite of sophisticated desktop-class features including 4 decks and live video mixing.
“djay Pro has been a huge hit on Mac and iPad,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim. “iPhone 7 has enabled us to completely transform the user experience of djay Pro by using haptic feedback and 3D Touch. It puts a fully-featured DJ system in your pocket so you can be creative no matter where you are.”
Haptic Feedback and 3D Touch
djay Pro provides unique haptic feedback on its high definition waveforms so users can literally feel the beats while scratching and scrubbing the music. And with 3D Touch, users can precisely set a cue point without having to lift up their finger while interacting with the waveforms. This innovative interaction paradigm provides a completely new workflow and user experience in music apps.
djay Pro gives users direct access to Spotify. New in djay Pro for iPhone is an extensive integration with Spotify’s Browse section so DJs can mix curated playlists and instantly find new music by mood, genre, and popularity.
Every feature of djay Pro has been carefully adapted for accessibility, so vision impaired users can take advantage of its advanced mixing features. With VoiceOver enabled, users can tap any button or slider in djay Pro for iPhone to hear a description of what it does, its state, and how to operate it through their headphones, independent of the mix that is playing through the main speakers. On iPhone 7, djay Pro takes accessible DJing to the next level by leveraging haptic feedback and 3D touch. Visual cues such as beat markers and bars are encoded into haptic feedback so visually impaired users are able to perceive the information as if they were seeing the visual waveform of the audio.
Apple Watch Integration
djay Pro for iPhone also comes with an Apple Watch app for remote control delivering ultra-low latency using Apple’s latest technologies introduced with watchOS 3. Users can run Automix mode, browse their playlists, cue up and mix songs, all while controlling advanced audio effects, and loops in real-time – right from the wrist.
