WHY WE’RE BETTER THAN OTHER APPS
•We're Personalized: PaceDJ lets you use the songs you have saved in your iTunes library. This means you are in control of your playlists. Other services provide random playlists created by DJs who don't know your tastes.
•We're Precise: 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.
•We're Free! Try PaceDJ for free to see how you like it! Then upgrade to Premium for features including intervals training, dislike button, and remove ads.
•We're Unique: PaceDJ is the ONLY APP that speeds up or slows down BPMs to match your running pace AND allows you to create interval workouts.
•Like Intervals? We've got that! Create custom interval workouts or choose from pre-programmed templates.
•Each song you own can pace you at multiple levels – a massive increase in the usefulness of your music library
•PaceDJ.com provides a FREE music discovery service so you can find and purchase songs that match your running pace.
•Echonest song database has over 35million songs and 2.8 million artists.
•Easily correct BPMs by tapping on the drum.
•"I love this app, I use it to crank up speed work for marathon training without my pace conflicting with my music!"
•"PaceDJ allowed me to find tunes that helped me pace myself… and spend my energy focusing on…proper running form. I use PaceDJ on every run."
•"PaceDJ gives me that extra boost of motivation. It gives me the proper speeds I need to stay on pace and even ramp up my speed work."

Ratings and Reviews
Won’t buy subscription for app I already bought
I also notice that the forward skip button seems to be cut off in the app (on my iPhone 6). A bit annoying since the app also doesn’t seem to work with iOS audio controls. I can work around this using a Bluetooth device, but it’s an annoying bug, especially if users are being asked to pay for a subscription.
For a few years, PaceDJ has been my go-to app for listening to music on my runs and walks. I have tried other similar apps but kept coming back because I appreciated being able to set and correct BPMs for songs saved to my phone.
I originally downloaded a free version of the app and then downloaded the paid version to get premium features (removing ads, interval training). About a year ago, the free version of the app was removed or changed to paid.
Now developers are switching the app to a subscription model. That’s a fine way to get revenue from new users. But the app is now set up so that people who previously paid for the app don’t have access to features they paid for. Not a great business practice.
Please provide some means for legacy users to access features they paid for.

CandyInCincy - Unfortunately Apple does not provide us with a way to exempt prior buyers from the subscription. Sorry that you are frustrated. Thanks for your comments.
tried the subscription
since there was no way to do some of the things i wanted... problem being that when the subscription renews the app doesn’t pick that up so i can’t so what i need to. i don’t notice there is a problem until i’m using the app... and it won’t restore to a subscription version event when i use the in app restore. the only way i can get it running as expected is to delete it (and all of the data with the app) and reinstall...
i took a chance with the subscription guys but every time it renews i lose a day on it because i have to redo it when I'm at home - or , basically, not the gym or running.
i gave you a chance here, at your suggestion, by subscribing even after you took away the basic functionality. i just deleted it again so that i can reinstall and use it and not be reminded about what was removed. please fix your app and how it applies subscriptions. id like to be able to use the app and not have to tweak with it all the time. it’s a decent app but, good god, do you guys ever use your own software in the real world?
correction, even after reinstalling this time it still tells me to get a premium subscription...

Hi Tandex - sorry to hear you are unhappy with the subscription. We wanted to exempt prior app purchasers from having to take a subscription, but that is not an option Apple makes available. Please consider that the $0.99/month PaceDJ subscription is a bargain compared to other services that charge $4.99/month!
Used to be pretty good but now adds are disruptive.
I’ve used this for a few years. It was decent. The thing seemed to limit the songs it played to a few, even though I’m sure of the thousands of songs I have downloaded to my phone, there are more than 30 or so at my target BPM, but I made do.
Now, I can’t use it. This new update causes an add to interrupt the music with basically every skip. Then you gotta look down and hit a button with sweaty fingers to get it back to music.
It’s more annoying than its worth, and I’m done with the app until it changes.

Hi Mickcollins - Thanks for your review and sorry you are frustrated. Try widening the BPM shifting range to pull in more songs at your target tempo.
We shifted to an ad supported free version and a $1/month ad-free version. This is due to the fact that we must generate a modest revenue stream to maintain the app. Its a balancing act, but we set the subscription very low. Competing apps are around $4-$5/month.
