That doesn't surprise me, as MyScript seem much more interested in licencing their engines than in selling apps. I've noticed for a while now that the purpose of MyScript apps is really to showcase their technology---they don't update older apps much. Instead , they're abandoned and MyScript release a new app with better recognition.
Which is fine and a splendid business model, I'm sure. I like to have a workflow that doesn't include MyScript apps, though.

I could tell because the approach to recognition was so different—PhatWare was definitely taking strokes into account, whereas MyScript appears to look at final form only. (PhatWare's recognition improved markedly once you told the engine how you did or did not draw characters.)
I still have my PhatWare and MyScript third-party keyboards, and I'll likely keep using them until some iOS update or other breaks them. Mazec—no dark mode, have to tap the enter key to clear the recognition buffer—is a slight step down from PhatWare, and a noticeable step down from MyScript Stylus. Don't get me wrong—it's definitely usable, but I hope I can keep it as a backup entry method instead of having to have it as primary.
