As a violinist and an iOS developer, my heart has always been with making apps that help musicians. Practific has been the longest running of such projects and was a large part of my early time as an iOS app developer. However, the needs of the modern classical musician in the practice room are very diverse and complex. Trying to grow the app to enhance the underlying experience for all of that for the diverse user base would not result in an effective app and is in turn not worth my time.
Effective 4/15/2013 I will be shutting down Practific. That does not mean that I will never make another music app, it only means that I do not see a long term sustainable future for the market for this particular app. Stow, my packing list app, helps traveling musicians as much as anyone. I look forward to making more apps the future that are more specifically targeted toward musicians in particular areas, but as this point, I can not say what they would be.
Thank you all so much for supporting and using this app through its many versions.
