[According to the developer, prior owners should have the inapp features included in the upgrade. Before you update, open the default notebook first in the prior version. In my own experience, this makes the update process work as expected.]
The developer also notes MagicalPad will be available for: Mac, iPhone and iPod touch this fall.
