Algoriddim Unleashes Video and Music Mash-Ups for the Masses With New vjay App for iPhone and New iPod touch

Now Anyone Can Quickly Mix and Scratch Like the Pros and Instantly Share Personal Video Creations From iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 via Facebook and YouTube

MUNICH, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- Algoriddim, creators of the popular music-mixing djay apps for Mac, iPhone and iPad, today launched vjay for iPhone, a video-music mixing app that makes it easy for all users -- from novice to pro -- to create, edit and share custom video mash-ups with user-generated or professionally produced content. Whether setting family video or photo moments to a customized soundtrack or cranking out Top 40 video mixes, anyone with an iPhone 5, iPhone 4S or even the new iPod touch can mix music or video -- either personal or downloaded media -- with added special effects to share your personal one-of-a-kind experiences with friends, fans and family members.

The new vjay directly integrates with iPhone's video-recording element in the camera app, includes pre-bundled video content from electro-pop superstars Far East Movement, video artist Eclectic Method, DJ & MC master J-Live, and many other clips and loops so fans can sample and add their favorite beats and begin mixing music and video content right away. A broad library of content from iTunes is also available through vjay. Users can play the custom-made music and video mash-ups directly to a TV, or record their performances live to share via Facebook and YouTube.

"We've always been about using technology to discover new ways to create and spread the music," said Kev Nish, Far East Movement. "The collaboration with Algoriddim on the Turn Up The Love x Digital Graffiti Project in downtown L.A. was a lot of fun and a big hit. This new ability to share one-of-a-kind music and video mash-ups with fans on Facebook and YouTube with our iPhones is really breakthrough."

The new vjay app takes advantage of the wider real estate on the new iPhone 5 and latest iPod touch to deliver a realistic video-mixing experience with added mixing elements that simplify the user experience. It fully leverages the iPhone 5's powerful A6 processor and Apple's A5 chip in the iPod touch, so users can simultaneously manipulate multiple music and video streams in real time to build professional-grade creations.

"Our goal at Algoriddim is to create a world where every single person can be an artist and bring their favorite memories to life by creating and sharing music and video mash-ups on the fly," said Karim Morsy, CEO and co-founder of Algoriddim.
