After just one look at the touch screen of an iPhone it was clear that someone would make an app like Tap DJ. The most important question was whether that app would be any good. In this case, we are happy to report that the app is not only good, but also it is one of the most engaging, well-rounded music creation and mixing apps in the App Store, with more features than most people will need and an intuitive interface that makes it not only easy, but also very fun to use.
Open Tap DJ for the first time and you're asked to run through a quick tutorial. It takes 30 seconds and shows you every vital feature of the app -- a must for first-time users. From there, you can start mixing your tracks. While actual music won't play because of the DRM protection (not a fault of the app, but a legitimate legal protection), your own beats, spoken word tracks, or non-DRM samples will play. You can change speed, volume, crossfade, and dozens of other levels with the onscreen controls, and you can record and share your mixes. The interface is very simple to use with only a handful of buttons up front and more advanced controls hidden behind secondary menus where power users can enhance their mixes further.
Tap DJ for iPhone is a powerful app that provides a robust, entertaining experience that anyone will enjoy, not just music professionals and DJs. Whether you dream of DJing up in da club or simply like playing with new digital toys, check this app out. It's worth your time.
