WHY WE’RE BETTER THAN OTHER APPS
•Some apps claim they can serve songs at BPMs to pace you to a specific minute/mile time. Unless they know your stride length, they can't do this accurately. PaceDJ helps you find the right BPM first, and then fine tune to match your mile time goal.

Close to Perfection
I've been putting PaceDJ through the paces for about a week now, and it's been a pleasant surprise. I like that I've heard some songs from my music that I don't always choose otherwise. It can shift the tempo of a song slightly faster or slower to match the pace I've set. I've also played around with interval training, and that seems to work great as well. Once I'm walking, I can manually adjust the tempos, and skip, pause, or repeat a song. All have come in handy.
PaceDJ also plays well with other apps. I use it with Zombies, Run!, and the music keeps right on playing. These two apps have really got me excited about going for walks.
The few negatives are minor irritants that can be overcome in future updates, I'm sure. In the process of shifting tempos, it occasionally repeats or skips a few beats. I just keep moving and get back to the new beat. Once, it started playing three songs. I just stopped and restarted the app. Some people who are doing a "serious workout" may have a real problem with that, but I'm just a casual user getting moving and enjoying my music.
Great job to the makers of this app. I look forward to updates to make it even better!
Almost exactly what I wanted
I've been looking for an affordable app that will match my music to my BPM when I run, and this is fantastic! Way cheaper than other options. I do wish, however, that there was a way to see a playlist of what you listened to during your workout, and also that there was way to link it to other workout apps. It does also occasionally freeze up or glitch (I lost my workout today, bummer). Other than that, it's precisely what I wanted! I'll be sharing it.
I really like it!
Today is the first day I used the app. At first I thought 'you're picking my lamest songs. This will be an awful run!'
But I realized as I was finishing this app is smarter than I am. It hit me that the songs may not have been my favorites but the tempos were just what I needed at the right moments. I was too overtired to run today but I did way better than I used to when I was too sluggish to run. I look forward to using this app often!
