Get the party started with Algoriddim’s incredible djay 2 app for Android
Algoriddim’s awesome djay 2 app has long been one of the biggest and most successful music apps on iOS, rarely dropping out of the category’s top 10 paid charts. And today, for the first time ever, you can finally get it on Android, with all of the incredible features that has made djay 2 so successful on iPhone and iPad.
When it comes to DJ apps, djay 2 is way ahead of anything else in terms of usability and features. It first made its debut on the Mac way back in 2006, and four years later it was ported over to iPad. Despite being priced at $24.99 back then, it still became a big hit, reaching the top of the App Store’s music charts and being picked as one of Apple’s best iOS apps of 2011.
Three years on, djay 2 is everything you could ever want in a mobile DJ app.
“We’ve constantly been pushing the boundaries of what’s possible on a mobile device and made DJing accessible to millions around the globe,” says Algoriddim CEO Karim Morsy. “We’re thrilled to bring djay 2 to Android and introduce a new era for high performance audio applications on the platform.”
Djay 2 for Android is essentially a mirror image of the iOS version; all of the features you’ve come to expect from djay are included, including automix, live recording, and intelligent match recommendations. There are some new ones, too, such as Spotify integration, allowing you to mix tracks directly from Spotify (with a premium subscription); and bundled samples from none other than Snoop Dogg.
What’s great about djay 2 is that even if you’ve never used DJ software before, it’s incredibly easy to use — and so much fun. I’m completely useless when it comes to anything like this, but even I was able to mix tracks that sounded pretty great on a $180 Moto G. And thanks to Match, which uses Echo Nest’s analysis technology, djay was able to recommend tracks that would work well together for me.
Algoriddim has worked hard to iron out latency issues on Android, so djay 2 is just as smooth and as responsive as it is on iOS — even if you’re using a budget smartphone. What’s more, djay for Android is compatible with DJ MIDI controllers, such as the Reloop Beatpad.
