[prMac.com] Munich, Germany - Algoriddim, creators of the popular djay apps for Mac, iPhone and iPad, today announced the optimization of its djay software to support the Retina display on Apple's newest MacBook Pro. The software update will offer a sharper, visually crisper and more realistic music-mixing experience. In addition, djay takes advantage of the newly launched Mac operating system Mountain Lion that supports AirPlay, where users can stream their audio creations to any AirPlay-enabled speakers or Apple TV.
Officially unveiled on June 11 during the 2012 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, the latest MacBook Pro features a stunning Retina display with 2880 x 1800 pixels (or 220ppi). In addition to higher resolution, the next-generation MacBook Pro boasts greater contrast and viewing angles and reduced glare compared to other laptop displays.
djay is among the first apps to be fully enhanced to support the Retina display on the next-generation MacBook Pro. Users will notice a greater level of detail and color saturation due to the higher resolution and generous viewing angles available making the overall experience much more realistic. To understand just how visually stunning this app is on the new MacBook Pro with Retina display, check out these images of djay for Mac optimized for Retina display versus djay for Mac on regular display.

"The Retina display on the MacBook Pro is gorgeous, and users of djay for Mac are going to experience a new level of visual clarity and state-of-the-art display that will blow them away. While all of our djay apps are highly sophisticated, this version really takes advantage of the Retina display to deliver a visually stunning spinning experience and take the art of DJing to new heights."
