Introducing the iOS Musician App Database!

Are you tired of only being able to shop for iOS music apps on the app store? Wouldn’t it be nice if they were sorted into different categories like synthesizers, drum machines, guitar processors, DAWs, ect…? Or by features like Core MIDI, Virtual MIDI, or AudioCopy…? If so, I’d like to introduce to you, The iOS Musician App Database! On your iPhone or iPad, you can now sort through synths, DAWs, tuners, notation editors, you name it – it’s there! No more shopping for ‘music apps’ on iTunes, discover new apps by category, and feature! Welcome, to the new way to shop iOS music apps…

Note: If you see apps listed twice, it’s because the iPad and iPhone versions are listed seperately while viewing from a desktop computer. While viewing on iPhone/iPad, only the relavent apps/app versions are shown.

“This is awesome! Can I help make it more awesome?”

Yes! You can! As I’m sure you all know, there are loads of music making apps. Collecting, and categorizing every single one by type and features would take a while. I’ve been working on this for about 3 months, and there’s still a long way to go, but you can help! If you notice something, like a Core MIDI compliant app missing from the Core MIDI listing, or a guitar tuner app missing from the guitar tuners listing, please fill out the short forum below to let me know, and please be as specific as possible!

For example, say a there’s a synthesizer app that supports Dropbox, but it can only upload .WAV recordings to Dropbox, don’t just tell me just that it supports Dropbox, include every detail you’re aware of!

We can do this!!!

Are You a Developer Who’s Feeling Generous?

Guest Posting & App Reviews

Many of you don’t know this but iOS Musician is solely run by a college student studying computer science. With a full load of classes starting in the spring, I’ve been brainstorming for ways to keep the blog alive. App lists always have been and always will be updated with the latest apps, as they don’t require much time. Generating original content however, does. So I’d like to open up the blog up to the readers and start accepting guest articles and app reviews! “What’s in it for me?” you ask? If you’re an artist making music on iOS looking to promote your work, this is a great way to do so. In addition to doing an iOS musician interview, which is a great way for your fans to get to know you, reviewing an app that you frequently use in your music can really engage your listeners, and attract new ones. If you’re a fellow blogger who would like to do a guest post, I’d be happy to use your affiliate links so that, in addition to gaining publicity, you can generate revenue from referred sales.

Feel free to contact me via any of the methods listed and we’ll get started ASAP!

Don’t Worry! There IS More to Come!!!

I’ve been pretty occupied with work lately and I just wanted to write to ensure that the lack of content isn’t taken as a sign of a my blog dying. So Don’t worry! There is more to come!
