This week the Apps of the Week section is devoted to the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE). Stay informed of the program with Woov and arrive anywhere on time with Moovit.


Because ADE does not have its own app, Woov is the best alternative. This general festival app is full of information about ADE, such as a complete timetable and the ability to put together your own schedule. With every act you can read some background information, so you know exactly what to expect in advance.

Woov also has a built-in feature to share your location with other Woov users. Handy if you have lost sight of your friends or if you want to meet at another performance. To use Woov, you must create a free account in the app once.

Because ADE uses the entire city center of Amsterdam, the events are not always close together. That is why it is useful to always have a good public transport app to hand. Moovit is a solution in Amsterdam, because the app offers a clear overview of trams and subways.

Just like with other navigation apps, you enter a destination and you then receive detailed directions. The advantage of Moovit is that all this information is clearly displayed. For example, the app takes your walking route into account, how long you have to wait for a tram, where you have to transfer and how long it takes to walk from the stop to your destination.

Did you get inspiration after your visit to ADE? Then turn some digital records before you spend a small fortune on physical DJ equipment. Pacemaker is a popular free app that works well with Apple Music and Spotify.

Once you are logged into one of these two music services, you can choose two songs and then mix them with two colored digital turntables. The app uses bright colors to indicate different functions, which gives you a good overview of the many options. You can adjust the sound to the smallest detail and synchronize the beat automatically.

Pacemaker is free to use, but you have to pay for more extensive functions.
