Under different circumstances, the release of a new virtual turntable for iPad is likely to go unnoticed. After all, there are already plenty of turntable apps in the App Store. But in the case of the newly released podDJ, the app is worth mentioning not so much because of what it can do as because of who created it.
You see, podDJ is developed by none other than Pod2g, the iOS hacker famous for his numerous jailbreak solutions.
That doesn’t mean, though, that podDJ has no notable features of its own.
Indeed, as stated in its App Store description, podDJ is “the only application of the App Store with which you can truly scratch on your iPad thanks to a brilliant touch to sound reactivity.”
