Splyce - App Review



Fancy yourself as a DJ?

This App might make your dreams come true... or at least give you a helping hand.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
To get started, just press the + and add some songs to your set. As anyone knows, that's the (relatively) easy part; the challenge is to order them in an appropriate way.

This is exactly where the App comes in handy.

The settings allows you to set various options such as:

Shake to shuffle
Drop played songs (they won't be repeated)
Transition (pick from vinyl stop, mix, equalised fade, or echo freeze)
Clear Playlist (use with care as if you press this accidentally, you will need to pick your set again)

You can then reorder your playlist with ease. The BPM (Beats Per Minute) of individual tracks are clearly listed, so this well help in getting things gradually wound up.

There is a visual beat indicator but, a pinch of salt may be needed to go with it.


Cost
The basic App is free, and there are then in-App purchases for more options.

Indispensability
The App undoubtedly helps in ordering music.

Dependability
The App is designed for the iPhone but works fine on an iPad in 1x and 2x modes.

Security
You can share your playlist via Facebook or Twitter. Although there would seem to be no real risk in this (unless perhaps giving away your awesome set), there could be more serious issue.

Have you actually purchased the tracks?

  2. The developer advises that there has been an update to version 2.1 of the App.

    This includes the following enhancements and alterations:

    - Expand your music library by purchasing on iTunes
    - Catalan localization
    - A bug caused your playback to stop sometimes in background, and it recovered when the app is back in the foreground... this version now does not cheat on you

  6. The developer advises that there has been an update to version 2.3 of the App.

    This includes the following enhancements and alterations:

    ◆ Ability to share on Facebook and Twitter your coolest mixes! Once you share a mix for the first time, you will also get:
    - Swipe left on the waveform to go to the previous song (you can swipe to the right to jump to the next track)
    - Rewind transition
    - Loop: click on it if you want to listen again to the same song
    - Black theme to make Splyce even more colorful
    ◆ Like your favorite songs from Pulselocker by clicking on the heart above the waveform. You will have a "Liked" playlist with all the Pulselocker's songs you liked to make it easier for you to organize your favorite songs you listen to on the streaming platform.

    And we have added Italian support to Splyce. If you want to give us a hand with translations and get some credit on Splyce, drop us an email, it would be highly appreciated!
