live code cross development

Post by gurusonwheels » Sun Apr 09, 2017 1:51 am

im very new to the development this .

i purchased livecode licence because it claimed i could develop IOS , android , and windows all at same time .

why is it that i can develop an android app on a windows pc but it will not allow me to do the same for ios ?

does not seem very CROSS platform if i have to have a mac to make the ios portion .

whats even stranger is that the mac tab is not greyed out !

:shock:

This is a restriction imposed by apple, and not a limitation of LiveCode.

So if I purchase a apple just to compile is my single pc licence going to cover both machine .
If not then the marketing is unfair to claim a licence can deploy to all platforms .

In fact, Apple requires that you pay them an annual fee of 99 dollars but
you could test your app for free in your own iPhone or iPad:

As far as I know you can install LiveCode on multiple machines using a single license.

Yes, your license is for the user, the number of computers doesn't matter. But be aware that Apple's procedure for creating apps is more complex than Android and requires more steps. You will need a paid Apple developer license (with some exceptions for free apps) and you'll need to complete a series of steps in your developer account at the Apple developer portal. It can take a while to get set up.
