djay 2 brings even better, more visual music mixing to iPad... and iPhone!

I have no musical talent. I feel like we know each other well enough by now that I can confide this to you. I'm tone deaf and incapable of keeping a beat. So, I will not be reviewing djay 2. I can't. It's beyond me. What I can do, however, is relate how I've seen it used by those with actual talent, and how easy it was for me to use despite having none at all. And it turns out, when it comes to djay 2, that's a lot.

Djay 2 gets teased, looks to take mixing, scratching, and partying to the next level

Algoriddim is teasing the sequel to djay, their Apple Design Award (ADA) winning music monster, and - shocker - it's called djay 2. The original djay's claim to fame was taking pro-level mixing, scratching, and partying and making it easy enough for anyone to use. I've had a chance to peak at djay 2, and it looks like they're ready to take that philosophy to next level. It's likely going to be something everyone wants to get their hands on - literally - at the club, at home, in the car, pretty much anywhere.

Vote now for the photo/video/music app of the year [2011 TiPb Awards]

TiPb Awards: Photo/Video/Music app of the year

Instagram went to version 2 and while initial reactions were mixed, popularity didn't seem to suffer one bit. Photogene also went to version 2, making a powerful photo editor even more powerful. Snapseed brings great enhancements and great filters together into one great app.

Apple's iMovie video editor hit the bigger screen, launching as a universal app alongside the iPad 2. 8mm Vintage Camera brought an old school aesthetic to one of the newest shooters on the planet.

GarageBand brought Apple's multitrack music editor to iOS, complete with instruments. Djay let you mix tracks so realistically you'll think you're in an 80s breaking movie. DM1 - The Drum Machine turned your iPad into a vintage drum kit.

Yes, it's odd jumbling all these apps together, but to keep the number of categories sane, we had to it. They all have two things in common, however -- they're all great and you have to pick your favorite. Vote up top and tell us why you voted they way you did in the comments! These are your awards, so get to it!
