vjay is a fun and original new iPad app that promises to transform your iPad into a cutting-edge mashup machine. It’s an Editor’s Choice in the iPad App Store this week and looks like it should be a very popular app. Here’s a bit of its App Store description:
Mix and scratch your favorite music videos from iTunes or combine songs from your music library with personal video footage into an interactive audio visual experience. You can even use your iPad’s built-in camera to add your very own clips to the mix. The first of its kind on the iPad, vjay lets you get creative with your content, display directly to a TV, stream wirelessly via Apple TV, or record your performances live to share on your favorite social channels.
vjay combines the worlds of music and video in an innovative and creative way, it paves the way for the next generation of personal and professional video creativity, it is the start of the next era of music videos as we know it.
And some of the app’s headline features:
– Media Access – Create stunning mashups using all your media on your iPad, including videos, music, and footage from camera roll. vjay also comes with a free bundle of pre-loaded music video and high-quality footage.
– Real-time video transitions, audio visuals effects – vjay comes with stunning audio & video effects, looping tools, visual transitions, and real-time VideoScratch™.

– Built-in camera integration – Quickly record your own video clips using the built-in iPad camera and add them to your mixes on the fly
– Integration with iTunes Store – browse, search, preview and purchase music videos on iTunes from within the app.
I like how easy to use this app is. I’m always a klutz when it comes to using any video editing type apps but I installed vjay last night and actually enjoyed it a lot. I ‘m sure I’m not getting near as much out of it as some more adept people will, but it’s still a ton of fun to use. And I’ve only just messed around with the sample videos so far.
The app requires an iPad 2 or later and iOS 5 or higher.
Here’s an App Store link for vjay; it’s priced at $9.99 – which is listed as a 50% off introductory price.
