Customer Reviews

  • I dig it!

    by Souldeacon

    I use this app at parties ALL the time! More sample packs would be sweet though.

  • Best Mixing App Period !!

    by DJ Lodose

    For the price this app does more than some programs on a regular computer that coats hundreds. I'm always on the go and this app is a dj's nirvana on the go.

  • It just Amazing

    by omartelbarbary

    I don't know what to say.. But if you're into mixing songs, djay 2 is the best DJ app in the world, easy to use, fast, looks almost EXACTLY like the Taps and Mixers and DJ stuff haha... Download it and your life will turn into a big giant dance floor ;) *Armin van Buuren fan*

  • Love it but...!

    by El_guitarro

    It needs a "to Soundcloud" export. Other than that it's legit for a beginner mixer, such as myself.

  • OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    by DJMATT25

    BUY IT! THE BEST DJ APP! CAN'T WAIT FOR DJAY 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Great

    by Bob the cow made of cheese


  • Awesome

    by ForeignExchange

    Me and my older brother had a blast going back and forth trying to see who could mix the best like they use back in the day. The old school DJ battle. Minus the kangoo's, Adidas track suit and shoes lol. ~Foreign~

  • Best djay app

    by Gpsssss

    by Bilk123

    I don't know how to do much yet but it is fun learning and trying to make everything work. And plays while your not in the app... Too good.

  • Love it

    by Macintosh001

  • I love this app

    by joshua Rochelle

    I always love having the ability to mix my very own sounds and listen to them later and jam out. I think this may be my favorite app.

    by Stepanky

    This is by far the best DJ app available. Would give 5 stars but disappointed to have to pay for djay 2 instead of it being an upgrade to the original djay app.

  • This is a old DJ's friend...

    by MaqMar

    I'm writing this as an old DJ from the 80's-90's, and I have to say this is the most fun I've had in my iPhone EVER!!! No more turntables, no more records,no more speakers. All you need is your iPhone! If you want to save money on the cable for cueing, go to RadioShack and get this instead. It's a Y-adaptor, and the model number is 274-375. The cost...? $1.63 tax includes. Have fun with this thing!!!

  • Best app ever!!!

    by Big-Doggs

    This is one of the best apps ever made

  • Absolutely amazing

    by Manoj M T

  • what a nice software

    by Zzzzitai

    I'm not a mixer and I'm a noob in playing music ,but it's really fun and I only need 5 min to be familiar with this software

  • Good app over all

    by Mints mints mints

    But when I was recording a sick mix and i was previewing songs while my set was playing and I thought the preview would show up on the recording but it did totally killed my vibe when I heard it during play back when I was showing my other dj friends

  • Nice app

    by Ll7130

    Nice app, works good

  • Good

    by Canyoncity

    If you love to mix music this is one awesome app, still getting the hang of it.

  • Want to like it...

    by drock45

    Great app, but even after all this time, STILL doesn't handle my iTunes Match library properly. Beware.

  • Great App

    by JackDaddySl

    For beginners Such as myself who are Fascinated with Music & The Incredible Awesomeness that is DJ-ing this IS THE app... Even tho I do it for Fun not for a living I am So/So @ it... (Major Respect to You Disc Jockeys Out there) but I am still always the honorable DJ @ any & all Parties that I attend (not really Parties more like get togethers) I would have given this app 5 Stars but didnt not due to the app its self but mainly for The Difficulty in which a Noob like my self Has @ really getting Started! I'd prefer either more in depth "How To" videos or a Clear cut way to Take the lyrics outta of a Song But keep the Music... Idk if the latter one is even possible or If there is a way to do that but I'm almost 100% sure that u can't! & that makes it really hard to make a Great sounding Mix.. But thanks for the time & effort that has been out into this great one of a Kind app.

  • Yo

    by erryday100

    Awesome app

  • Cue point problem

    by @whoisclassic

    Good app but the only problem thats been happening is the CUE POINTS! It removes where I set the cue point & minutes later when I load the song again it puts random cue points. 4 stars for now until ya fix that.

  • Amazing

    by Bob Swagman99

    Great app best dj app I have ever seen

  • Great to test a mix and to loop it.

    by Sumbi

    I use this App to playback a mix I've created. I can change the speed and mix an instrumental track of the same song together with a vocal track to get an idea of an extended version. The EQ is great and the loop feature is quite useful. I only gave it 4 stars because it won't (or I can't) keep the song in place after being away from the App. In other words, I have to start all over. But it's a great App and the fault could be mine. So I give it an actual 4 and a half stars.

  • Love the app, but...

    by Sorry not allowed

    Sometimes it crashes for no reason, or while I am choosing a song on one side of the "turntables" while on the other side a song is playing, there will be a pause and then the song resumes. Please fix this! Oh and it would be so great if this app had a sharing function to Facebook or Soundcloud.

  • Spin records while riding the subway

    by ellisonline

    I love it

  • Love this app!

    by Karan kawa

  • My most used App

    by B-Poz

    I like this app. I've made great mixes with it. I use it to play my music instead of using ITunes. Purchase this app and you will be pleased. Nuff said.

  • Hello

    by Hikuru


  • Why are we paying?

    by Hip-Hop Saved My Life

    It's just an update. I don't see why we ought to pay, let alone at "full retail value."

  • Greatness

    by cobeyd

    I myself had a mobile dj service at one time but got out of it because it started to become a job and wasn't fun anymore, but after downloading this app and playing around with it, it makes me want to start djing again. This app is great and so much freaking fun. I love it! Wished I would have known about this app before, I would have stayed djing. Great app, definitely should have if you plan on becoming a dj. It's fun and easy, and great if you need a dj for a party but can't afford a live one. You can set up this app, use your music library and it auto mixes for you.

  • Best dj app ever

    by silonup

    Absolutely love it. I have tried several dj apps and none has the reliability and precision as this. For the price and value this is a no brainer. I also have the Numark idj pro so it's awesome.

  • Great!!!


    This is awesome! I love it!

  • Muy buena app

    by wilberth chab

    Excelente !!!

  • Amazing for on the go

    by JetblueCapt25

    With this app you don't have to take all your gear with you with this app you have it all on your mobile device

  • DJay2 Review

    by Dancing Fishboy

    First off, I have used DJay for several years and love it. The beats per minute counter is almost always correct. The new DJay is way off. The Blue Danube is 180 BPM, but the app says it is 117 or just a slow waltz. This can be problematic if you are spinning for dancers. I will not use this app, until it is fixed.

  • Great dj app

    by mark9031

    Really liked using it with the idj live 2 controller. It's pretty fun. I wish there were more samples but still really cool for 99 cents.

  • Perfect!

    by Hatunga

    Just completed a nice basic mix, great to show friends you can mix some songs.

  • Needs a little more features

    by Beninatir212

    Great app but need a little more features added to it to make it a perfect djing app but it still is an amazing app

  • AMAZING!!!

    by That apple guy

    Love the app the best dj app there is!!!!!

  • Really Good and better that the first


    Really really good if u just want to listen to music. And play around with it!

  • Used to be so good... Now it's a crapy software

    by Sellayoffe

    The iPad app works. The iphone app ISPs so bad. Can't play auto mix. Crashes all the time.
