Fans of Flying Meat’s VoodooPad personal wiki software have reason to celebrate: the venerable Mac app and its iOS companion have a new home at software coop Plausible Labs. The move was announced on Wednesday in blog posts on both developers’ sites.
Gus Mueller, Flying Meat’s proprietor, wrote that he decided to part with VoodooPad because he wasn’t able to devote enough time to the app’s development. “Both VoodooPad and Acorn have grown over the years into much more than I can handle as a single developer. And because of this one of my two apps was going to be neglected, and obviously VoodooPad has gotten the short end of the stick lately.” The last update to VoodooPad came in February 2013.
“We’re big fans of VoodooPad and put it to a lot of use,” Plausible Labs software engineer Mike Ash wrote on the coop’s site. “We’re excited to take over the reins from Flying Meat and hope that we can live up to the expectations they have set.” Among Plausible Labs’s other projects are Comixology’s Comics app for iOS and Android; VoodooPad will be its first Mac app.
For its part, Plausible Labs says that users won’t likely notice any major changes to the software in the short term as the company gets up to speed with the app before deciding where to take it from here.
“I trust [Plausible Labs] to do the right thing with VoodooPad,” wrote Mueller, who says he will be devoting all of his time to his other major app, Acorn. “It’s all in their hands now.”
