iOS: If you have Liptikl 1 for iOS then getting Liptikl 2 for iOS is a no brainer! It has many new features and is a free update. It is a free update because ... well, frankly, it was quicker and easier for us to do it that way.
macOS: Liptikl 2 for macOS is a new, paid app. If you are happy with the features and interface of Liptikl 1, then you don't need to get it. But, there is a lot of cool new stuff in Liptikl 2...
Windows: Sorry, but on Windows we are staying with Liptikl 1 for now. We hope to be able to find the time to port Liptikl 2 to Windows as a new, paid app, but it is a lot of work as it has a whole new UI.
Our goal for Liptikl 2 was to improve it so you could create even better results, faster and more easily. We think we have achieved that with cool new features such as the Liptikl Word Bank, single word alternatives and iCloud Drive support etc. You would only need to consider buying Liptikl 2 if you want to use any of these new features or to continue using Liptikl if your OS version will no longer run Liptikl 1.
How we keep keep prices down and still keep moving forward
Intermorphic is just Tim and Pete; we are not a megacorp or big music software company. We are two normal, friendly, humble, approachable and easy going brothers that have spent over 25 years and many thousands of hours developing complex, deep and powerful Creativity tools (e.g. Liptikl, Mixtikl and Noatikl).
Our creativity tools exist in a small niche area compared to other kinds of apps which means there is not a massive market for them. Developing and extending them is an expensive and very time consuming business for all kinds of reasons. To support their continued development we need a model that works for us and also allows us to deliver great value for our customers.
With that in mind, a few years ago now we developed a new commerical model that we think works well for all. We call it the Fullgrade model and all our other apps use it. It basically means that all major versions are already priced as upgrades so if you want the new major version you just buy it! Having provided free updates to Liptikl 1 for macOS over the last 4 years we decided that with all the new features we had worked on for the new release it was at last time to move to Liptikl 2 to this model and charge for it as a new app.
If you enjoy using Liptikl and/or get value from what it allows you to do, then please do purchase the new version - when you purchase our tools you get our eternal gratitude, and you will know that you have encouraged us to continue their development. Thank you!
