After the Book Came Out: Ableton Link

Ableton Link doesn't arrive on your iOS device as a separate app, and the list of supported apps seems rather small at the moment. But it functions where others (I'm looking at you, WIST - it says something that Korg apps prominently display in the Ableton Link-supported section) have failed. It just syncs the enabled apps without issue. Tempo remains locked no matter what, and no matter whether you're interacting with iOS-only apps on your device, on multiple devices, or even with Ableton Live on your computer. App developers have to put this functionality in the apps themselves, but activating it on enabled apps just involves flipping a switch in the app. After that, you can start and sync compatible apps easily. Great job, Ableton!
