They have already got some critique for this but it is not so bad if you want what i would consider the best and most flexible Generative music app you can get for Android.
The biggest news in this update is that you can load SF2 files.
It comes with six of them preloaded.
It is also the first time it is available for the Google Play Store.
Before I go into the differences in versions etc.
You can still buy Mixtikl 5 on the Amazon Play Store and it recently got updated but there will be no more updates. So if you have it and do not find the new functions interesting it can be an idea to continue to use the number five version until devices do not support the older version?
Okay So the Google Play Store version is for free and supported by ads. It does not have drop outs every ten minutes like the free Amazon version and you can use the save function.
What it does not have though is the possibility to buy the in-app purchases which are:
Save / Export / Clipboard / Mix Recording / No Timeout 1.46 € / 1.98 $
Remove ads 0.73€ / 0.99$
Sound / FX Network Editing 1.46 € / 1.98 $
Generator Editing 1.46 € / 1.98 $
Ahhh so to get the goodies you still have to sign up for Amazon...
But it can still be good enough with the free version for the Google Play Store version as you can save and it does not have any drop outs in the sound?
It is a little bit weird to confuse people with two different versions and on top of that having version 5 separate from number six but it is still a very interesting application as you have in number five and in six (with the in-app purchases) a full modular system built into it and a lot of ways to shape and create how you want the music to be generated.
There is a Desktop version to that is and as far as I understand the same, meaning that you can interchange work in progress. It is actually so much functions that it would take me too long to write about it now but there is a lot of information on their website and there is a lot of videos on Youtube where you can get a deeper idea of how it works, so far only for
Mixtikl 5... Here is one that gives you an idea.
Amazon Play Store version:

I do hope that the developers have not made themselves a disservice by this confusion as it is a good, stable application and the developers have always left me with a good impression...
but in the end it is not too complicated and the only hinder I can see is that you still have to sign up for Amazon to get the full version without restrictions as many prefer to have just one account for application purchases...
