Algoriddim Transforms Apple Watch Into The World’s First Wearable DJ Controller

Apple Design Award winning app djay receives major updates across all Apple devices and arrives on Apple Watch

(MUNICH, Germany) – April 23, 2015 - Algoriddim, creators of the world leading mobile DJ app today released a major update to djay 2 for iPhone with seamless Apple Watch integration. Users of any skill level will now be able to use their Apple Watch as an interactive DJ system. Whether practicing on-the-go, mingling with guests at a party, or rocking out on the dance floor, djay on Apple Watch frees the DJ from the DJ booth and opens the door to completely new ways to mix tracks.

With djay on Apple Watch, users can browse their entire iTunes library plus cue up and mix their favorite songs, all while controlling audio effects and loops for each deck individually – right from their wrist. Or they can simply use Apple Watch to engage djay’s popular Automix feature that pulls tracks from Spotify and mixes them automatically.

“We extracted the essence of DJing and put it onto Apple Watch”, said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim. “We believe this will transform the workflow of the DJ. I’m confident to say that you can now perform a full DJ set right from your wrist and we can’t wait to see what our users come up with.”

djay 2 for iPhone ($2.99) with Apple Watch integration as well as djay 2 for iPad ($9.99) will be available FREE on the App Store for one week only.
