haQ attaQ: 25 FREE Music Making Apps for iOS | NO IAP!

YouTuber Jakob Haq broke discchord really fucking hard this morning. Apple is retiring the iTunes name, so all "official" app links are now supposed to be apps.apple.com instead of itunes.apple.com. Jakob did this, but the code that discchord uses to finding app links in video descriptions was not prepared for that. It was especially not prepared for 25 of those links. This revealed a serious flaw in the way I was doing things and made a pretty big mess of the site's database.

Sorry if you noticed the site was temporarily unavailable. I had to do some emergency coding! It wasn't really Jakob's fault, but damn why did we have to find this out in a video that contains 25 links. It made such a mess.

Video Description:

Here are 25 completely FREE music making apps for iOS. No freemium apps, no IAP's and No strings attached. There are a lot of free apps on the Appstore and I've gone through over 500 music apps, for both iPad and iPhone, just to find the most useful ones. I've managed to find Synthesizers, Drummachines, Delays, Flangers, MIDI tools and a few other goodies. However, the list isn't perfect because I was working under a strict set of rules.

This may have added some unexpected coding time on your side, but I have the impression it will be easier linking apps later, or am I wrong? :P
Fuzzplus 3 has a bug in it that kills the audio engine in GarageBand (use it on a smart instrument and see for yourself). I reported it in my App Store review. It has never been addressed and they’ve never replied to the review. Doesn’t matter because it’s free, right? [rolls eyes]

Well, it will now be as easy as it was before the iTunes change. It was something I would have to have done eventually, but not something I was prepared to do in a hurry this morning.

As a side effect it revealed a fairly serious flaw in the way I was parsing the YouTube description. I was able to address that too this morning. So yeah, in the long-run I'm probably making life easier on myself with the effort I put in today.

There've been times when I've marveled at how much synth & sequencing power was available in freeware on Mac (which was also the case for windows, I'm sure).

With the prices of apps on iOS, the difference between free and $5 is pretty negligible. However, free or not, the quality, power & features are kind of all over the place. Gems, mehs & stinkers.
