VIDEO: How to use the DJ Lobo app bookmark feature

One thing that makes the DJ Lobo app different than Pandora or Spotify is the curated content that the app has.  The songs in each mix are hand picked by the DJs, each mix have multiple artists and different songs.  Because of this curated content & the structure of the mixes, we saw the need to add a way to bookmark songs between a mix. That’s how the bookmark feature was born and it has been very useful for the users of this app.


Let me show you how to use it in the video below.

Tired of music skipping while using the DJ Lobo App?

Managing an app like DJ Lobo is no easy task, considering the magnitude of users that uses it on a daily basis from around the world.  We are always making tweaks & updates to address any issues from the different types of devices we support, specially Android.  One of the issues we face is the different types of internet connections that our users have, mainly from countries outside the United State such as the Dominican Republic. A slow internet connection causes the app to be buffering very often, affecting the listening experience while using the DJ Lobo app.  To fix this problem we are introducing a new Settings page in iOS/Android where the users can change the Audio Quality to Low, Medium & High.

Low Bitrate Chart

Using the app in Low or Medium audio quality mode when the internet is slow, will improve the listening experience preventing the app from stopping and loading as it does now while playing the High Quality version.  We think that our users will find this very useful considering the second benefit which is that it will save them Data usage since these files are smaller in size than the high quality version.

This new feature will be available in the next upcoming update for the DJ Lobo App. Lookout for versions 2.3.3+ in iOS and 2.3.4+ in Android.

*** UPDATE: Android version 2.3.4 is live now ***

DJ Lobo App 3.0

It’s been over 4 years since we released the first version of the DJ Lobo App to the App Store and Google PlayStore. Since then we have released many updates, fixing bugs and making improvements. But every two years we try to release a big update changing the design, adding new features, and rewriting the app from scratch to ensure the app codebase stays up to date.

That time has come and we are already in the process of redesigning the new version of DJ Lobo App. We are currently working with professional designers who will take the DJ Lobo App to a new level.  The app will be written in the new Swift programming language that Apple released about a year ago. This will make the DJ Lobo app modern and help reduce bugs & crashes in the future due to the greatness of this new language.  The app will also support the new devices that apple has introduced in the past 2 years, such as the iPhone 6, 6Plus, 6S, 6SPlus, Apple Watch & iPad Pro.

We are very excited to bring a new look and feel to this app, and we know that people who use this app will love the new update.
