This week’s iPad App of the Week in the App Store is djay. The app offers to take DJ’ing to the next level, with easy and innovative multi-touch mixing features. OK so I am a million miles away from having the skillz to make use of this app, but it looks very cool and promising for those who do.
Here’s more detail on it via its App Store description:
djay transforms your iPad into a full–fledged DJ system and seamlessly integrates with your iTunes music library, giving you direct access to all your favorite tracks and playlists. A hyper–realistic touchscreen interface and ultra low–latency converge to offer you a true professional mixing experience, all with your own music. You can perform live, record mixes on–the–go, or enable Automix mode and let djay mix your favorite playlist from your iPod library auto–magically!
