Back in November, we first previewed a version of Algoriddim's Djay for iPad which took advantage of the new iOS 4.2 firmware to provide a low latency DJ experience on your iPad. The company has just released an iPhone and iPod Touch version of the app that offers many of the same features as the iPad version. While some were quick to note that such a system wouldn't be used by DJ's in a professional setting, it's still a very impressive use of the audio capabilities of the the most recent versions of iOS.

The iPhone version includes iPod library access, automix, beat matching, recording capabilities, and many of the same effects as the iPad version. The iPhone version is $9.99 [App Store] and is distinct from the iPad version which sells for $19.99 [App Store]

Umm.... is it just me who thinks so, but for $19.99, the iPad app should have universally worked on iPhone in my opinion. Especially since the usefulness on iPhone is far less than iPad. I've seen far more useful apps give you universal access for less money.

Don't get me wrong, I think this app is way cool, but it just seems it would make more sense to offer a universal app in this case.

saw this response on youtube

yep destroying the art form, thanks apple.

My response to these kind of comments is always the same

Snobby Photographers said the same thing when DSLR's became affordable. Sorry to say this but Auto mode in high end camera's can produce near Proffesional level results ( takes years to be at true pro level)

Bringing Technology to the masses is a good thing
a) More interest
b) More exposure = Long time DJ's will up their game
c) Difference between a crappy DJ vs a good DJ become a lot more noticeable

Ha, reminds of the time when desktop publishing came first came to the masses in the form of Aldus Pagemaker.

from the video it seems inferior to Tap DJ, which is cheaper and seems to have more polish.
anyone know why i should get this "Algoriddim" instead?

I agree. It's a pain that a lot of apps these days are not universal, especially when you pay extra for the iPad version. It would be nice to be able to pay an 'upgrade' fee and get the iPad version if you already owned the iPhone app. (My pet peev here is the cost for Angry Birds HD when you already bought Angry Birds).

Although, at least it's a good reason to save my money :)

I can somewhat justify the pay for every version in my head for applications (if they do it right you usually are getting something more in the iPad version) but not so much for services (coughMLBcough).

Sure would be great if they would update Djay for iPad, it's not stable and crashes way too frequently. Doubt I would purchase the iPhone version based on that alone.

They just released an update yesterday - see below:

What's New in Version 1.1
This update contains lots of exciting new features including looping, multiple cue points and BPM library browsing. In addition we addressed various stability issues.

- Auto Looping (with on-the-fly half/double)
- Manual Looping (in, out, reloop)
- Bounce Looping (1/16 to 2 beats)
- 3 additional Cue Points
- BPM column in full screen library
- Level meter swipe (gain adjust)
- Added compatibility with Bluetooth audio devices
- Extended support for AIFF and WAV files (requires iOS 4.3)
- Improved library search
- Fixed low memory issues
- Fixed low memory related crashes
- Various bug fixes and improvements

★ NOTE: Looping, cue points, and EQs are accessible through the tools sheet that you can open with the button above the speed slider. ★

I'm very excited about this. I'm no DJ either.... and the comment about the whole photographer thing...
Everyone owns a Digital SLR and Everyone calls themselves a photographer, but the minute they jump into real "professional" shoot, ish will hit the fan if they don't know what they're doing. I've seen it many times and have actually had to work double time to fix a "photographers" work.
With everyone having a digital camera today, it's actually easier to weed out the wanna-bes vs the real photographers.

This is too cool. Now that's how you spice up a party.
