What happened to iSub?

Postby squipple » Tue Mar 04, 2014 10:58 pm

I use iSub as my mobile subsonic app. I visited the site for the app and it hasn't been updated since 2012 The forum seems to have gotten spambotted to oblivion. Anyone know if this is still being developed?
Also, on a related note, any subsonic ios app developers planning on carplay integration?

I believe the developer took up a position with apple and will no longer be working on the app, other than to ensure compatibility with future os updates :(

soab, iSub is my favorite iOS app. I really hope he keeps it working with new subsonic releases etc. I was hoping to see see the v4 stuff he had going.

Apple is basically doing it's best to kill subsonic, an iTunes Radio competitor, on iOS.

The dev is prohibited by contract with apple from working on iSub in the future. It's dead, Jim.

if apple would like to kill subsonic, isub wouldn't be in the app store in the first place...

love isub too, hope an app like audiophone gets more functionality so it could replace isub.

From my understanding, he isn't exactly prohibited from working on it, he made it sound like more of a time thing. Either way, the dev shared a lot of his code with the guy making Audiophone and from conversing with that guy, he seems committed to making a great iOS subsonic client. Also, last I heard, Ben was going to open source iSub on git, so that could help in development of future apps for iOS. Either way, i've been using Audiophone for a few weeks, and for me, it works well so far, just missing a lot of features. The beta's for Audiophone have slowed down lately, so I'm hoping the silence means a big update is coming.

FYI iSub has now been put up on GitHub with a GPLv3 license.
