For over five years we have been publishing apps for musicians made by musicians and music educators. The past two years have been difficult for our small company to keep up with the many changes that Apple had rolled out for iOS developers. In 2017, we discontinued support for a number of our APS including A.P.S. MusicMaster, A.P.S. Music Master Pro, A.P.S. Stopwatch, and A.P.S. Tuner.
Apple had retired our Stopwatch App due to the built-in functionality of their stopwatch included in the newer iOS versions. A.P.S. Tuner was using older code and would not be supported in iOS 11. Our iPhone version of A.P.S. Music Master, although still solid in functionality, was not upgradable either.
Because we believe in the core of what the A.P.S. MusicMaster apps had done for its user base, we have decided to re-write A.P.S. Music Master Pro for iPad and make all of its components to work with iOS 11 and future versions of iOS. This was no small task. To that end, we will be relaunching A.P.S. Music Master Pro as A.P.S. Music Tools, a title that makes it more findable and descriptive as to what it is. A.P.S. Development LLC will be distributing this app on the Apple Store through its own company.
We are also planning to integrate a future iPhone version of A.P.S. Music Tools as part of the A.P.S. Music Tools app that would cross devices. In the past, two separate versions had to be purchased, A.P.S. MusicMaster (iPhone) and A.P.S. MusicMaster Pro (iPad). Currently, the A.P.S. Tuning Trainer is still available for purchase and remains one of our top selling apps.
As we get closer to the launch of A.P.S. Music Tools, we will be posting more about the new features and our future road-map of the app and other apps developed by A.P.S. Development LLC. Thanks for supporting us and music education.
