That may be true with desktop software, but I respectfully disagree when it comes to mobile.

There’s ever-growing fragmentation on Android, sometimes the developer must adapt to handset manufactures' & carriers' idiosyncratic variations of the OS/UI, form factors and unique features.
Then there are Apple's new and tempting backend solutions, like CloudKit, which provide a seamless experience for both users and developers. 
But they are clearly iOS only solutions. Leading to developer lock in.

IMO, the LiveCode is very nicely evolving to deal with this continuing differentiation of devices and OS ecosystems.
