One of the requests in my iPad Pro wish list for Macworld was aimed straight at app developers: The iPad Pro will be much more useful when there are more apps that take advantage of its screen size and features.

This week we’ve see two major app releases that embrace the iPad Pro, and it’s great to see.

Algoriddim has released djay Pro for iPad, which supports mixing of up to four audio tracks, playback of two simultaneous 4K video streams, 70 keyboard shortcuts, access to Spotify, and iOS 9 multitasking features. The $30 app is currently on sale for a limited time for $20.

I’m no DJ so I can’t judge the app on that score, but people have raved about djay for a while now and the tech specs of this new version are quite impressive.

A new version of image-editing tool Pixelmator for iOS also arrived this week, featuring Apple Pencil and palm-rejection support, as well as 3D touch support for iPhone 6s models and a whole bunch of other improvements.

Okay, who’s next?
