So RunRev wants more of my money- what has been fixed?

OK. So now they added a bit of graphics power and updated IOS a
bit. Now they want hundreds more of my money. 

Has Android progressed
at all? I mean, really, at all? Now I have to spend tons of money to get
what I already paid for that has not worked yet fully? 

Has web been
fixed at all? No, of course not. Will it ever? Will I actually receive a
working copy of web deployment without spending hundreds more? It sounds
like I will HAVE TO upgrade to 5.0 if they ever do come out with these
fixes. 

Really. I bought into Live Code with the promise of
cross-development. So far, I have lost a major client due to
cross-deployment not working AT ALL on what I consider a simple database
program. 

I will not spend any more money on LiveCode until these
things have been addressed. 

What sucks is, I really like LiveCode. I
waited for a long time to buy it and then a good deal (and some money in
my pocket) presented itself. 

To say I was let down is an
understatement. I lost my primary mode of income because the web
deployment module, which supposedly worked, ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY DID
NOT WORK. 

I feel screwed - and now, like so many other companies, they
want more money for a new version without fixing or finishing the
previous version problems and promises. 

Nope. Not going to do it.


Fact is, I bought Rad PHP EX2 from Embarcadero for $300 and it can
deploy to almost anything because it compiles to AJAX, Air, Flex and
HTML5 - and it is very graphically oriented and OOP. 

Granted, if I
wanted to purchase Delphi or their version of the complete coding
collection, it would cost in the thousands. However, I feel Rad PHP is
enough to get done what I wanted to do in LiveCode. 

It sucks, because
I was beginning to really 'get' LiveCode, and I was really enjoying
learning it, but I am officially done. 

Some will say I did not give
LiveCode a chance. However, I lost a client because web deployment was
broken - a very big client that was paying me very good money for
creating their database systems. 

I went from PHP and MySQL to LiveCode
because of the lure of cross deployment. It was a serious mistake and
the damage is done. 

Now 5.0 is released and I see no progress AT ALL
to Android and Web - the two reasons I went with Live Code. 

Does
anyone else feel the same way or am I alone feeling like this? Are you
all really ok with doling out cash because a new version a 3 or 4
features have been added. I would change my tune if a long 

list of
fixes - specifically to Android and Web - were also presented. 

TBH, it
is STUPID of RunRev to offer a deployment option that is broken -
without any ETA of a fix or working version. 

Very said indeed.
