Pulse Code Inc. - Gone?

Hey everyone. I really loved Pulse Code's apps.... Rhythm Studio, Modular, Pulse, Boom 808 (never bought 909 though)

Tried searching their page. Got error 403. Facebook, itunes, etc.
Nowhere to be found.

Do any of you know what happened to them?

  • So funny I just searched them the other day. They are GONE gone. Boom 808 is still the best sounding 808 I’ve heard on iOS.

  • Rhythm Studio is still available in purchased apps.

    So true...
    I recall a video where I thought Boom!808 sounded better then some hardware clones :lol:

  • @BiancaNeve and @Littlewoodg
    Yeah... the purchases still show up. But other than that, no smoke signals :disappointed:
    Now I regret not buying Boom!909 before :lol:

    Not sure if it's exactly the same group of coders, but Rhythm on my PSP was awesome too

  • Damn... and here I am who considered buying the 808 some days ago

    Forgive typical stupidity; are purchased apps only available to look at in iTunes or is there somewhere else?

    In your download history. On the App Store, on any page (except search) tap your portrait icon in the upper right. There you can see your purchases and download them, even if they were removed from the App Store. There are very few exceptions to this.

  • Reminds me to finally buy AnalogKit, which developer also seems pretty much gone. The company Pulse Code Inc. is still active thought, albeit the developer (or at least one half of it) is probably full time working as CAD specialist... I guess one could try to contact him, but maybe that would be a bit too touchy.

    I did a comparable research while searching for the dev of AnalogKit and although both of those Apps (or devs) seem to be vanished from the development world, they still renewed their companies in 2018.

  • Isn't it so that as yearly license fees are not paid to Apple that apps will also removed from the Appstore, even if they were purchased. So I fear for owners of Pulse Code Inc. apps that they will loose their apps with purchase of new iPads in the future...

    Nope. Afaik only if the developer explicitly wishes so apps get removed from the purchase history. Not paying the developer fee does not automatically remove apps from your history, because there are a whole lot of old apps I can still download of now defunct developers.

    Always had this one hanging on the wishlist too :lol:
    But I still gotta make zMors and Audulus 2 run a bit more :lol:

    Still noy clear to me. I understood that license fee is the key to uphold apps in the appstore. Maybe some additional info or links how this exactly work could be great. Anybody?

    It’s the key to distribute apps on the App Store but does not affect the availability of bought apps for the customer. If you’ve bought it you have access to it.

    Not sure what you are asking for. The dev fee is simply required to actively offer your app on the App Store. I am pretty sure there is an official article on that on the official developer.apple website you could google for.

    If an app is removed from your purchase history as well, it was completely pulled from the App Store by choice of the developer or publisher. There is nothing you can do about it but only because an app is removed from the App Store it does not necessarily mean the fee was not paid. And only because the fee is not paid, it does not mean your apps get pulled from the App Store but rather are stopped being distributed.

    Thanks for the explanation

    might not work anymore, but I did get a couple apps restored to my purchase list years ago after an e-mail exchange with an Apple rep .. : flight control, and Bioshock.

    I hope they bring back the ability for users to backup and restore apps — I’d rather have that than some of the other features coming to iOS/iPadOS.

  • RIP old friend... one of the best iPhone music apps.
