Reasons to choose PaceDJ:
•We're Personalized: PaceDJ lets you use the songs you have saved in your library. This means you are in control of your playlists. Other services provide 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 pacing goal.
•We're Free! Try PaceDJ for free to see how you like it. Then upgrade to premium (just $0.99/month) to unlock features including interval training, workout tracking, and BPM shifting.
•We're Unique: PaceDJ is the only app that speeds up or slows down BPMs of songs you own 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
•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
This is a great app and definitely worth the small monthly price if you work out regularly. It makes a big difference for me when on the treadmill or elliptical— much less boring and easier to keep my pace. I had some issues initially, but the developers were extremely attentive and helpful and fixed all the bugs. Now it is very smooth.
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.
Great App but Ads hurt its usefulness
Obviously the app was better before the ads but it still does what’s intended. I’ve merely adjusted my running to make it work. Due to an issue with the app I had to shuffle all my songs which... wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be. Still the app does exactly what you’d expect & has a ton of options available.
I’ve posted on FB, sent a tweet, & messaged the Dev through their website. Version 2.3.1 & 2.3.2 crash upon opening on an iPhone 11 Pro on iOS 13.1.3.
I even uninstalled the app & then it worked... temporarily. After force closing the app after it reuploaded my song list the crashing returned. Crashes on opening!
Edit 1: In response to the developer I’ve used the “contact us” form on their website to send more detailed information. I cannot enable or send a log as the app ALWAYS crashes upon opening it.
Edit 2: I did another uninstall & rebooted the phone, then reinstalled, opened the app, got my tempo uploaded & then closed the app. Crashing upon opening returned. I rebooted my phone a second time... it works! Never did get a response from the developer via email.

Tario70 - For some reason we haven't received your messages. Could you send us your log file from PaceDJ? You can activate the log function in settings, and send the file from settings as well. We'd like to fix the problem.
