Depending on your perspective, the announcement can be viewed as a sign that Android is catching up with iOS as a platform for music apps, or that Android music software is years behind iOS. The iPad version was introduced in 2010.
Note that the app has a different feature set than the iOS version and is priced cheaper. One key difference is that the Android version only lists support for one MIDI controller, the Reloop Beatpad.
djay for Android is available now for US $2.99.
