The App Store and Mac App Store are home to plenty of apps for novice and pro DJs alike. Algoriddim’s djay 2 (read our review) and Native Instruments’ Traktor DJ are among the finest examples of how a tablet can be used to double as a virtual turntable for mixing tracks in real-time.
I’ve seen a number of DJs hook up their iPad to pro equipment and mix tracks from their iTunes library as if it were second nature. To be perfectly clear, I suck at DJing and have no interest in it.
Those who dig DJing, however, are advised to take a look at the just-updated djay 2 for the iPhone and iPad or take advantage of a time-limited discount on Traktor DJ for the iPhone and iPad. I also mention another notable discount on a similar app, Cross DJ for Mac. Jump past the break for the full reveal… Read More

The unreasonably priced iPad 2 with sixteen gigabytes of storage and no cellular sells for $399.

On the other hand, some customers such as schools and businesses clearly see the value or Apple otherwise wouldn’t be keeping the device on the market at that price.
If for any reason you’re in the market for a second-generation iPad, Walmart has a sweet deal for you in the form of an electronic $100 Walmart gift card… Read More

Stainless Games unleashed Carmageddon on the App Store back in October 2012 and today it goes free as the App of the Day app. This classic carnage racing game has earned its notoriety way back in 1997, when the original PC release caused quite a commotion among the purists and censors due to its graphical violence.
The iOS version has been toned down a bit to placate Apple’s censors, though you can still run over pedestrians who stay out on the streets at their peril. And watch out for the cops in their super-tough armored patrol vehicles… Read More
