The developers describe Listen as "A music player you can use without looking at," since there's zero buttons in the user interface. Everything is gesture driven. Everything.

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.
