If a developer abandons an app, it is only a matter of time before an iOS update officially kills it.
Usually, there are newer, bigger better apps to take their place. But sometimes a gem just goes bye-bye.
One such app is PitchLab. There are many tuners for iOS and I've tried quite a few of them. The best by far was PitchLab (I believe it was called PItchLab Guitar Tuner in iOS. The developer is Karl Morton. One of the features that made it special (besides its best-in-class tracking) were the different display options, including a spectral view that showed pitches on an X-Y graph. It has to be seen to be believed. Incredibly helpful-- and works like a charm. My most favorite teaching app.
It left Play and iOS app stores a couple years ago, (though I believe the android version is still available in its last form from the Amazon app store). It worked for a while in iOS but a recent iOS update finished it off.
I'm curious if others have some beloved apps that have had a similar fate.
