Alchemy mobile has been my go to music creation app ever since I discovered it. It has been the easiest to use most responsive and the most voiceover friendly music creation application that I've used on any platform. I was very unhappy and sad to find the Apple purchased camel audio and that they would know longer be updating their software you can't even buy it anymore.
I was filled with anxiety each time there was an iOS update hoping my beloved alchemy would continue to work. It was always a great relief when I found out it still was performing as before.
But sadly now with the most recent update to iOS 10.1.1, there is a message that comes up an alert that says alchemy may slow down my system and that the developer needs to update the software.
The problem is that camel audio no longer exists and is owned by Apple. Apple is not updating the software. This is a super shame because it is probably the most well thought out accessible music app anyone has created for an eye device. Why Apple would buy something that was working so well for the blind and then remove it from the market is beyond me perhaps they needed some of that technology whatever the reason it has caused me to be fearful of losing this beautiful application all together.
The good news is that it seems to still be working despite the notification alert. I haven't had any real glitches with it so far. And his performance seems to be as good as it was before. Even still works on my 5S. I hope Apple will continue to support this product even though it is no longer for sale because they did because they did purchase the company. I also hope that Apple will put resources into supporting more programs like this that really work so well with voiceover and have a good understanding of the UI when people who are blind are using it.
