When will we have Apple Watch and Apple TV Dev Kits?

Post by ekek » Fri Oct 23, 2015 12:11 am

Hi guys:

Several months since Apple released Apple Watch dev kit and weeks since Apple TV sdk is ready, and I still don't see any signal that Livecode is working on them.

Apple watch development is not only a very interesting opportunity but a must, and I am very worried to see months passing away without knowing when will we be able to develop for this devices. Every day that I use my Apple Watch I think in new ways in wich my apps could be applied on it, but wake up to the reality and realize that in that area I am only a user and not a developer.

I imagine that I am not the only one guy that have invested a lot of effort and money in the ecosystem of LC and I want to have chances to develop apps for the present and the future, and for me Apple Watch, Apple TV and wearables, are the present and the future.

Please work and invest in this key areas. Desktop, legacy systems and even HTML are the past, not the future.

Regards

This is something I was wondering about also, especially for the TV. Heather or Kevin, is this going to get included in LiveCode in the foreseeable future?

You two are not being serious in your demands are you ?... Don't you think that the people at liveCode are working flat out to bring new things to the table all the time ?.. the have reworked LC, nearly from top to bottom, have it running on several platforms, have lc server and a php equivalent in .lc scripts... just about to have stacks running in commercial web browsers again... You are spoilt with what you can acomplish with liveCode... and yet all you want to do is 'whinge' like a child who can't have a new toy... please !

But if you are in such a rush then have a look at 'swift'...:-)

Mine was not a DEMAND, just a simple question about something that is important to me. I was wondering why the original post did not merit a reply from the LiveCode staff. Many of the features that Dixie mentions, although monumental for some, are irrelevant to me.

I'm curious about this. How would one, for example, type this forum post on a watch?

Funny backward thing
LiveCode runs on Android watches, normally it's Apple then Android.

This industry (everybody should know it) is a very hard one, and gives to the first ones in a category the chance to become not only the winners but to be the owners of new industries. If you arrive in the 500th place then you have a very small chance to make it. That's why I think it is VERY IMPORTANT to think about TV OS, Apple Watch, 3D Touch, Force touch, and 3rd party integrations like TWILIO, PAYPAL, STRIPE, APPLE PAY, NUANCE, Machine learning, etc.



I wish you a merry christmas and a successful 2016

Remember LiveCode is cross-platform. There are other developments I would prioritise.

That's the problem. We all have different priorities.
Livecode can't keep all of us happy all of the time.

Yes, that's why I mentioned other priorities, just to air the idea that the wishes of the OP don't match everyone's.
