DIY DJ: Review of My Wedding DJ App
Wanting to create your wedding music playlist using your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch? Well, now there’s an app for that. We were contacted by Allen at Steamclock Software about their new app, My Wedding DJ. I found My WeddingDJ to be quite easy & fun to use. It’s divided into two modes: the Music Plan & the Player.
The music plan lets you add, edit and arrange the music for your special day. To get started, you can pick & choose items from the template categories or feel free to create custom categories. Each section allows you to pick a song or a playlist (created on iTunes) that are on your iPod.
- Pre-Ceremony (Playlist)
- Groom’s Procession (Song)
- Group Procession (Song)
- Bride’s Procession (Song)
- Registry Signing (Playlist)
- Recessional (Song)
- Cocktail Hour (Playlist)
- Wedding Party Entrance (Song)
- Dinner (Playlist)
- Cake Cutting (Song)
- First Dance (Song)
- Father-Daughter Dance (Song)
- Mother- Son Dance (Song)
- Slow Dancing (Playlist)
- Bouquet Toss (Song)
- Garter Toss (Song)
- Party Dancing (Playlist)
- Final Song (Song)
Editing the music plan is quite painless. The items can easily be re-ordered, changed or deleted. In edit mode, there are options to rename the item, change the song or playlist, turn on/off “Wait Afterward” and turn on/off “Repeat”.
Once you’re satisfied with the arrangement in the Music Plan, it’s time for the Player. There are simple directions how to “slide start” each section. Once a section is playing, you can pause or skip the songs (each utilizing a nice fade-out). The Player also allows you to move back to the previous section.
The Wait Afterward allows the section to end and requires a slide start to go on to the next section. This can be helpful while waiting for various cues during the ceremony for the processions & recessions. Turn the Wait Afterward off for seamless transitions between sections.
One of my favorite features allows you to take requests while playing your preset playlist (provided that song is on your iPod).
My WeddingDJ is available through the app store on iTunes for $4.99
