That sounds pretty interesting.
Wouldn’t that be doable by creating a splash stack the looked for a stack to launch in its folder. That stack would be the app. But I don’t know if a stand-alone compiled splash stack could call and run a raw xxx.livecode stack.

I don't want to get involved in building iOS standalones (or even installing xCode), so ideally I would give them a simple app (i.e. stackRunner kind of thing), and then my "app" as a document to load into that 'runner' app.
