Apollo MIDI over Bluetooth Free arrives

A free version of Secret Base’s Apollo MIDI app arrives. Here’s the difference between the free and the paid versions:

“Apollo MIDI over Bluetooth provides low latency MIDI connections between two iOS devices, or an iOS device and a Mac. This version is free, with connections limited to 5 minutes; this should be plenty of time to evaluate the speed, and determine if the app works on your equipment. If you like it, you can upgrade to the full version, which has no limit on connection times!”
