Re: Load stack from server to mobile

I've heard rumors that some livecoders have not incurred Apple's rath with iOS apps that load external stacks.
The theory being it's akin to loading javascript in a webpage.

But I don't know if this is fact or mere rumor.

Can anyone confirm or refute?

Re: (Solved!)How to create and Random Shuffle Array?

BTW, I doubt the company would be moving into a new and larger building if they were having financial difficulties. I fully expect the company outlive me.

Re: Future of LC?

Building iOS apps requires a complex dance between LC and Xcode, which changes with every new version of Xcode. Without the LiveCode company to make such changes within new versions of LC, LC would quickly become obsolete for building iOS apps unless someone else assumed that mantle.

Re: embedded audio clips pause

There should be another hidden copy of this 3Gb movie
somewhere in your Hard Disk or...
Did LiveCode memory requirements suddenly jumped
3 Gb more than before?
Or perhaps the memory requirements of a player are not limited by LC's memory requirements.
