VjayAlgoriddim has made its realtime video mixing app Vjay free for both the iPhone and iPad, presumably for a limited time. The apps are normally $9.99 and $2.99 for the iPad and iPhone respectively.

The app launched last June on the iPad and for the iPhone in November.

Mix and scratch your favorite music videos from iTunes or combine songs from your music library with personal video footage into an interactive audio visual experience. Or use your iPad's built-in camera to create your very own music video live. vjay lets you get creative with your content, display directly to a TV, stream wirelessly via Apple TV, or record your performances live to share on your favorite social channels.

In addition to the change in price, the latest software update for Vjay added a couple new features including 'Key-Lock' that allows users to change the tempo of audio and video without affecting pitch. However, Key-Lock only works on the iPad 4 and the iPhone 5.

Update: Vjay is Apple's 'Free App of the Week'.

Vjay is currently a free download for the iPad and iPhone from the App Store. [Direct Links: iPhone, iPad]

Wow i really get p'd off when all these app companies make their apps free right after i buy them! maybe algoriddim should make djay for ipad actually affordable

Oh yes. these companies should totally spend 1000's of hours making software and give it away for free!

Jeeze! can't they have a sale without you feeling entitled to having things thrown at you for free? If you were happy to pay $10 for it, then you shouldn't feel bad.

If you need DJay the $20 or $10 or whatever it is is peanuts to you. If you want it but can't afford it, well then, thems the breaks. As someone who owns both, they're very much worth the asking price (i mean in a world where most pro audio apps used to cost $10,000 i almost laugh when people can't break a $20).

These apps are what make iOS superior to andriod. Audiobus, DJay, looper, garageband, etc... These make the platform great. They cost money. Deal with it

You should be fine as long as you don't try to monetize your video.

Yet another person who doesn't understand the copyright laws. Copyright means the 'right to copy' is set by the owner of the copyright. Fair use says you can make a back up copy to preserve your investment. Fair use allows for parody or to inform or teach, the latter is usually limited to excerpts and not the whole body of work.

In the case of vJay, you are looking at creating a derivative work, using bits and pieces to create a new work.
