App Description

Hitting writer's block? Then get Liptikl and use its powerful cut-up technique to quickly help create novel text ideas for lyrics, poetry, haikus, stories etc. Users say: "Brion Gysin, William S. Burroughs, BOWIE! This is the closest "cut & Paste" writing generator I've ever been able to find.", "I used Liptikl extensively while writing lyrics for my last album and found it incredibly useful", "Liptikl is the key to unlocking word combinations and mental scenery", "Ideas fall from the sky with this app. No more writers block on lyrics!"

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Liptikl quickly generates a random cut-up from a pool of words. This pool can include words from up to 5 user entered text fields. When creating a cut-up words can also be blended in from an optional User Library and customisable Liptikl Word Library.

For your cut-up you get to choose how many lines and how many words per line you want in it and whether you want Liptikl to attempt End of Line (EOL) rhyming.

Once an initial cut-up has been created you can continue to iterate cut-ups until you are happy. You can lock down what you really like word-by-word or, for just a selected word, choose one of the alternative cut-up words presented.

Liptikl's fast, effective, iterative approach is a great way to come up with fresh and exciting word associations to explore. It could be just what you are looking for to spark something original and different!

Liptikl 2 is for both iOS and OS X (versions available separately, both support iCloud). Both versions operate in similar ways and have the same key features.

EXAMPLE USAGE
# Try mixing a Shakespeare sonnet with some Tolstoy and then add in some short news story or headline.

# Try letting Liptikl create from scratch a cut-up from the editable default word bank, lock words or change words, iterate and then see where the idea takes you.
