Fewer, like the one we are dealing with now, withdraw functions for no apparent reason.

This is the case of Live Weather, a weather app that has a free version and subscription that just removed the VoiceOver function. However, the Apalon developer behind the app indicates that they are aware of the failure and ensures that they are working on it.
