App Reviews: Algoriddim Djay (for iPad)

You know the drill by now - dj app tries to replicate a realistic dj experience, and the experts try to pick it apart. So does the Algoriddim Djay app for iPad get the job done? A couple of in-depth web reviews give us some insight.

'Our resident professional dj was pleased rather than blown away by Djay, initially calling it a nice toy, but later describing it as a very convenient way to practice a set on a bus or train before coming back to 'real' dj gear at home or a club.' - iLounge

'Djay for iPad won't cut it for the advanced dj, but it's a fun tool that works well and takes advantage of all the iPad's usefulness.' - PCMag.com

Couple of things stand out to me. First off, the reviews note that you tend to get low memory warnings on a semi-regular basis, so look out for that. But for a beginner who wants to play around before upgrading to something bigger & better (or someone who just wants an easy way to keep the party going), Djay does a solid job of re-creating the experience - or simply beatmatching the tracks for you. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
