iOS Hacker Pod2g Releases PodDJ, His First iOS App [Video]



pod2g, an iOS hacker famous for his many jailbreaks, most recently the Absinth 2.0 release for devices running iOS 5.1.1, has released today released his first iOS app. It’s called podDJ, and it turns your iPad into “the most realistic virtual turntable you have ever seen,” allowing you to mix and scratch any track in your iTunes library.

podDJ has been designed to provide you with an interface that’s powerful and easy to use. The discs and controls have been carefully placed so that your hands can navigate their way around each feature as quickly as possible, without the requirement of any additional accessories to “achieve the perfect mix.”

According to its description, podDJ is the only app in the App Store “with which you can truly scratch on your iPad thanks to a brilliant touch to sound reactivity.” Furthermore, pod2g promises it will “finally inspire the DJ sleeping inside you to wake up and turn your living room into the club it ought to be!”

Check out the demonstration video below:

podDJ claims to be the fastest scratching app in the App Store, and it boasts a sound output latency of just 5 milliseconds. It also offers zero latency cue points, so you’ll hear sound as soon as you hit the cue button; and zero latency key locks, which means time shifting is applied at the source of the audio chain so you hear it instantly.

Other features include transform buttons, BPM detection, turntable emulation, monitor output, and support for an external mixer. There’s no multitouch limit, so you can use as many fingers as you need to, and multitasking support means podDJ will continue to play your music even after you’ve switched to another app.

podDJ will be available to download from the App Store on January 12. It will be priced at $5.99 for two days, before going up to $7.99 until the end of January. After that, it’ll cost you $9.99.
