I am pretty sure there are many who made and still make money with Livecode apps.

I for example have an app, unfortunately a niche product, which i am selling through Kagi for some time which gives me some revenue. I am selling round about 10 to 20 copies a month.

I´ve created 6 iOS and Android apps for customers. 5 of them are listed under the customer names.

I´ve created an inhouse iPad app for a customer which is used by sales representatives to sell products to undertakers.

And i´ve created several inhouse apps (pricelist tools, reporting tools, download portals and other db stuff) some in combination with livecode server for use in our own company.
Okay, with our inhouse stuff i did not earn money, but we spent a lot, because we did not have to hire some one to do this for us.

At the moment i cannot earn a living with my LiveCode stuff, but i am still happy with LiveCode, because i see at least some revenue.

Or is it just fun?  Are you ingenious enough to hit the sweet spot what is driving the downloads? This is nothing against LC - rather a question to answer to possible $ supporters if to continue pursuing the efforts & telling 'this will be the thing'.

Finally, is everything just games and plays, is there any interest for value applications, which is not 'just here and now'?  What's there for serious app development, is everything just what is the click for just now, just today?
