Algoriddim just won “App Creator of the Year” at this year’s Windows Developer Awards for its work on djay Pro, which was built from the ground up as a native Windows 10 app. The awards honour exceptional apps published in the Windows Store over the past year, showcasing the latest Windows 10 capabilities in new and innovative ways.
“We are extremely honoured to be recognised as App Creator of the Year by Microsoft,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim. “With every release of djay Pro, our mission is to push the boundaries of technology and empower our users with creative, state-of-the-art tools. djay Pro fully leverages Windows 10 and provides the most modern foundation to mix music on the platform.”
djay Pro for Windows 10 launched just last month, and it’s nice to see a DJ app that makes full use of the touchscreen functionality of the Surface and Surface Pro line of laptops (along with other touchscreen-enabled Windows laptops).
It also supports the Surface Dial accessory, which is a location-aware knob that you can use to control different functions such as for going through your music library, scrubbing through a track, and so on. It looks cool, but to be useful it needs to extend functionality, lest it becomes a gimmicky integration like the MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar.
