- Apple device user: If you need only 8 hours max continuous play (and/or are maybe are a current Noatikl or Mixtikl user) then this year get 'Wotja 2018 for iOS' or 'Wotja 2018 for macOS' (if you have not already got it), and simply ignore 'Wotja X' altogether. In 2019 get the next annual version of Wotja which by that time will be the cross platform version. From 2019 everything will seem much clearer.
- If you do need longer than 8 hours Music Play Time for your Wotja albums, get 'Wotja X for iOS' or 'Wotja X for macOS' and the relevant Long Play subscription tier.
- Windows PC or Android device user: If you need only 8 hours max continuous play (and/or are maybe are a current Noatikl or Mixtikl user) then this year get 'Wotja X 2018 for Windows' or 'Wotja X 2018 AZ for Android'. From 2019 everything will get much clearer.
- Important: Wotja X is NOT yet feature comparable with Wotja and does NOT yet have many of its editors. We expect that by end April 2018 it will at least be broadly feature equivalent for generative music editing.
We know it is confusing and apologise for that but we are building the 'Wotja X' app so we can reach the goal of having just one interface to 'Wotja' for iOS, macOS, Windows and Android - this being the successor to our Noatikl, Mixtikl, Liptikl, Tiklbox and previous Wotja apps.
The 'Wotja' and 'Wotja X' apps are both the same under the hood and we hope our 'Wotja X' interface work will be complete by April 2018. At this time 'Wotja X' V5 will be a full authoring system equivalent and feature comparable to 'Wotja' V5 for iOS/macOS. We will gradually start to transition users of the 'Wotja' V5 subscription version for iOS/macOS to the comparable 'Wotja X' V5 version and then remove from sale the 'Wotja' V5 subscription version (no subscriber will lose out, don't worry!).
A few months later when the dust has settled we will rename the 'Wotja X' app to just 'Wotja'. That will likely be on Jan 1st 2019 to tie in with the release of V6.
By 2019 this will mean we have just one app called 'Wotja' per platform (be that a subscription or annual version or both). That being the case, we refer to them both as just 'Wotja'.
Hoping that helps and sorry if we could not find a way to make the transition simpler!
We understand that it can be hard to get a handle on what is going on with 'Wotja' and 'Wotja X', sorry. The reason for it is that we (there are just 2 of us) are still in the midst of a very tricky two stage transition, something we simply had to do to have any chance of being able to keep moving forward and innovating.
The first stage was consolidating all our previous iOS/macOS apps (Wotja, Noatikl, Mixtikl, Liptikl, Tiklbox) into one. That app is called 'Wotja'. We completed that stage late 2017.
The second stage, and the one we are in now, is in porting 'Wotja' to become a truly cross-platform app that can run on iOS/macOS/Windows/Android. That app is named 'Wotja X' (X as in X-platform). We have to make it available as a different app to 'Wotja' simply because it will take us a good while to make it feature complete which is why right now it cannot just replace 'Wotja'.
When we have finished 'Wotja X' it should be as feature equivalent (and similar) to 'Wotja' as we can make it. At that time the 'Wotja X' app will be renamed to 'Wotja' and the old app will be phased out.
This whole transition should be complete on or before Dec 31st meaning that in 2019 everything gets simpler as there is then just ONE app we will have to maintain and extend moving forwards - that being a cross-platform Wotja app called 'Wotja'. This will be great for users as having just one thing to focus on means we will be able to move it forward faster.
Yes, we know we also make available 2 variants, a free subscription version and a paid-for annual version. We do that, however, to provide user choice and make it easy to dip into.
