First Try at iOS6. Which Musician Apps Work, Which Don’t.

I’m between production projects so I thought I’d take a bullet for the community and just upgrade my iPad 3 to iOS6 without knowing if any apps would work – lol. If you are in the middle of a project I suggest you wait to upgrade. This is a general rule I follow for all my equipment and software.

I restricted my testing to the following criteria. Will the app start? Will it function in a basic way (GUI works, makes some noise)?   I don’t own ever app made so this is just my list of what works and what doesn’t. If you find issues with apps feel free to make a comment – and of course notify the developer so they can upgrade the app for iOS6.

Update: Both of these apps are now working in iOS6.

  • PPG WaveGenerator
  • Akai SynthStation

If you double-click the button on your device you’ll see these apps are running in the background.

  • TC-11
  • Alchemy Mobile
  • CrustalSynthXT
  • GeoSynth
  • GrainSicence

Proceed with Caution

Again this is a basic test just to see if apps function at a basic level. I’ll let you know if I bump into more serious issues as I work with the apps on iOS6 in the comments.
