LiveCode is a multiplatform development environment which empowers you to create apps that run on every major device and platform -- iOS and Android as well as Mac, Windows and Linux Desktops, the Web and Server environments. LiveCode is a fully featured development environment -- you can create anything: cloud apps, business apps, multimedia and video apps, e-learning and games.

** If you can imagine it, you can build it**

LiveCode has two main components that make it quick and easy to learn:

**An English-like programming language

Write code that makes sense in the language you use every day! LiveCode's natural programming language is far easier to learn and use than Java, Objective-C or other traditional languages because it does not use obscure symbols or arcane syntax. LiveCode is easy on the eye -- the expressive, memorable and English-like code is easy to read back months or years later.

"If I'm not sure how to do something I just write the code in English and chances are it works.... I'm halfway through the trial and I've already written half my app".
- Kevin Tildsley, LiveCode Customer

** A visual development environment

A clear drag and drop interface makes app development a snap. You build your app by dragging objects and images into your interface -- making it quick and easy. You then add scripts to those objects using the English-like programming language we talk about above. You can create applications with speed and ease

In addition to be quick and easy to learn, LiveCode has one more unique feature that makes rapid app development possible:
** Compile-free coding

Make your apps in a fraction of the time with our compile-free workflow. Unlike other languages, LiveCode is always running - you can add new objects, alter their properties or edit code while your application is live and see the results immediately. That makes it remarkably quick and easy to develop, making one change and trying it out, then another and another. Editing live applications creates an incredibly powerful workflow, and one that can dramatically shorten a typical development cycle.

"I designed and prototyped the (software) with LiveCode, and in less than one week was able to present a full running demo to the customer."
