Open Source Kickstarter Report Card

Tom,

It's an Apple's restriction. Although you can generate and test Open Source iOS apps you can't submit them to the iStore. Apple does not approve open source apps. I'm not sure if the iOS option is disabled on the community version, but I don’t think so.

I haven’t posted in a long long time and I have a question.

I just reread the entire Kickstarter Campaign promises and they state very clearly that IOS deployment is included in the open source edition "It will run on every popular platform and device.” and “...running on six platforms - Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android and Server” but on the new livecode pricing page it states that “Note: IOS deployment is not included in the open source edition”.

I am really confused by this and was wondering which is true. I have always paid for and had the biggest commercial version available and will probably buy into the Indie version once they are up, but I convinced a lot of people to contribute to the Campaign and am wondering if I owe them all apologies.
