The book begins with simple calculator application and quickly enhances it using LiveCode Mobile. The reader can start by learning the interface controls for videos and images of LiveCode’s environment. It then goes deeper into configuring devices, building user interfaces, and making rich media applications, lastly helping the reader uploading the mobile applications to App Stores.
This tutorial style book, moves from basic LiveCode coding concepts to its real-world implementation. It will teach developers techniques to use this new framework to develop interactive, cross-platform mobile applications.
