What parents need to know

Parents need to know that edjing Mix - dj app is a music experience that allows kids to try their hand at DJing. The base app is free, but there's some pressure to subscribe to the premium service. Kids who don't subscribe will find locked features and tempting add-on content just beyond their reach. There's no tutorial or help here, so kids will need to be open to exploring and figuring things out on their own. There are external links to other resources in each of the lesson areas. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

EDJING MIX - DJ APP gives kids the chance to unleash their inner DJs. They can load a play list of songs and then create their own mixes using loops, FX, and samples. They can also adjust things like beats per minute, pitch, and the in-app equalizer to help bring everything together. Kids can record their mixes and save them for later or share them with friends. Some samples are included and more are available for purchase or as part of the subscription. 

Is it any good?

Aspiring DJs can load up their favorite tracks and start making their own musical magic replete with special effects. Edjing Mix - dj app doesn't have any sort of tutorial or help to get you started (the help section is minimal), but entrepreneurial kids will be able to explore until they figure it out. There are plenty of features, although some of them are locked behind the premium subscription. This is frustrating, especially for kids who are looking for a larger library of samples to play around with. It's a solid app for amateur DJs, but parents will need to be prepared for pressure to buy and some frustration from kids who aren't quite sure what to do.
