      Livecode is hypercard on steroids with cross platform exporting. Code once and export to all.. Brilliant stuff. I am an early way out of the box hypermedia developer who started on Hypercard. Fuck Apple for killing that and quicktime. Livecode is free for open code use. I have a permanent Indy license and was very happy to pay for it. !
