and a showcase music/video app:

And a bunch of other apps too.
Well my wife will kill me if I would extend the subscription...anyway.
I will fall back to the Community version and i'm exploring React JS versus Flutter/Dart, and I think the latter looks very promising and a fairly new language which seems to gain more and more users, and both mobile platforms and the web is enough.
More and more people like web instead of installing programs.
But it will be a learning curve also for me. But it's free and you can create closed source apps also.

Anyway I thought I share it so you can see what you can do with lc among a lot of other things.
(and i'll keep playing with LC community and lc-server)

When one of the apps will bring some income, i'm happy to renew a license, but until then I will explore other ways.

Thanks!

Too little. I did an online training on how to setup such plan which also involved some investigation on how market chances could be(via that they try you'd take a startup loan which i did not wanted, i did not want to start with a depth).(But according Dan Pena depth is good money :) ) At first the food order app was mentioned for a single food provider, but then i thought i could do it it for many just like the big boys as Deliveroo and TakeAway and others. (I integrated a payment gateway so one could pay via IDEAL or Creditcard and then return to the app.) But these companies are so big and have so much influence and money. Takeaway buys out companies with billions. I got some positive reactions from people who would like to see some concurrency as many restaurants are paying high fees up to 13% of each order. So i thought i must be done cheaper. Anyway i contacted a lot of food suppliers, but it seemed they accepted the high fees due to the high presence of the big boys. Maybe i had to contact a few 1000's before one would jump in to try, even for free for the first months. Anyway all apps where free for users without ads and the income would have come from low fees.

previously I built a mobile application with ionic and nativescript. but as a solopreneur I have trouble with javascript. changes to previous Ionic versions and many incompatible plugins. give me a headache. I still have an application written in angularjs. I wrote back in the livecode. Completed in less than 3 days.Livecode changes everything. I save a lot.

Thank you livecode

I spent 10 years making something that is technically brilliant.

Income so far = $700

Expenses so far = $700

But I'm alive and happy: and that, when push comes to shove is more important than all the money in the world.

Looks good. But what can you do with it?
Maybe i'll show this to a colleague of mine which has Hindi background.

But what can you do with it?
You can use it to input text in any Indic language in either the Devanagari abugida or the Grantha abugida with
full lexicons of conjunct consonants, and conjunct consonation is performed automatically.

It also supports more than 7 types of Latin transliteration as well as the International phonetic alphabet.

It can export the end results in a wide variety of formats.
