Noatikl 3 for iOS was released November 2015. All our music app development work has now moved to Wotja, the evolution of Noatikl, meaning that as of 2017 Noatikl is no longer being worked on. We took that tough decision in order to secure a future for a forward looking app that can play Noatikl files - Wotja 4. In Wotja 4 for iOS we have also consolidated what would have been the next versions of Noatikl 3, Mixtikl 7, Tiklbox 1 and Wotja 3 into just one app. Wotja 4 for iOS is already more powerful than Noatikl 3 for iOS, and has 16 track mixing, content randomisation, per voice TTM, support for loops etc. See the Wotja Feature Comparison.
Although Noatikl 3 is now efectively frozen we expect current builds should continue to work just fine for a long time (it always remains possible that future OS or 3rd Party software changes might cause issues, however).
Important Note for Noatikl 3 Desktop users: Noatikl 3 for Desktop (Mac/Windows) will likely continue to have a vital role to play for you. That is because even though we are releasing a simple Wotja Web Player for Desktop (macOS only) we have no current plans for a Wotja Desktop Authoring tool (we may revisit that later in 2017) or for Wotja Desktop Audio Plugins. Of course, Noatikl files can be imported into/use in Wotja, see below.
We are a hard working 2-man artisan developer team who takes great pride in our niche music apps and who give them our all. Due to their inherent complexity they are very hard to build which is why you will find it hard to find anything else that covers the same breadth of capabilities.
For the last few years and for all our paid apps we tried to work on a roughly annual (chargeable) "fullgrade" cycle. For our complex and unique tools this helped allow us to develop new features and capabilies and to work on continued maintenance (software does not write itself, extend itself or even maintain itself - all require sustained ongoing effort from the developer).
As we operate in a very niche, low volume, market then for us to get sufficient income to allow the forgoing from an app priced at just a few dollars, especially if it is a "one off purchase for all time", is extraordinarily difficult (it's actually impossible).
The very real world situation faced by every app user (and we are app users, too) is that without ongoing maintenance all apps, even just standing still, will eventually die as operating system changes obsolete them.
So, to better serve our customers, we took the tough decision back in 2016 to improve productivity and reduce costs (for some background on the reasons behind our decision please see this forum post). This decision meant that rather than spending our development time working on the next chargeable major version of Noatikl, we would work to consolidate the best of Noatikl 3, Mixtikl 7, Wotja 3 and Tiklbox 1 - and further improvements and extensions - into just one app - Wotja 4.
We hope that enough customers want us to survive, want to see what the next part of our journey will bring and will stay with us through this time of change. If that is the case, then, with Wotja, we should in the longer term be much better placed to be able to extend this one app with new features and capabilities and to maintain it (this is particularly important if you have created files in our other apps that you want to be able to continue to play in the coming years).
What is Wotja?
Wotja 4 represents the next step of evolution for ALL our music apps and incorporates the Intermorphic Music Engine 4 and Intermorphic Sound Engine 4. As well as extending the features and capabilities of the IME and ISE, in the future we hope to be able to extend Wotja's platform support.
We have worked hard on interoperability in Wotja 4 and it will allow import and export of Noatikl 3 files. These can be used in both the Noatikl 3 / Mixtikl 7 Mobile and Desktop apps so Wotja should easily be able to fit it into your existing Noatikl 3 workflows.
To recap: Wotja 4 for iOS is in effect Noatikl 4, Mixtikl 8 and Tiklbox 2 for iOS all rolled into one. It already incorporates most all of the capabilities of Noatikl 3 for iOS as well as a lot of new ones (including many of the best Mixtikl 7 and Tiklbox features, too!).
