Yes, it is a strange decision from Samsung. They claim they will stop supporting the audio system it uses as well, we'll see what happens to ThumbJam... I'm guessing nothing until they release new OS versions, unless they actually force me to take it off the store since it supports the pro-audio SDK.

The alternative of using the normal Android audio system is not great for most devices, even though recent ones have somewhat decent low-latency, most do not. I may consider making it broadly available or only available on recent OS versions with better chances for getting on devices that work better for it. No promises though, because supporting any app on android is a challenge, and there hasn't been a lot of interest so far....

I kept my Samsung Note 4 as long as I could so I can continue to use ThumbJam. But is there an Android version in the works?
