Hi Jonathan,

I mainly use Rev for personal/professional, day-to-day use, including:
- Internet banking
- Converting styled text to simple HTML
- Changing the case of text of on the clipboard INTELLIGENTLY (e.g. 
don't capitalise small words)
- A shopping list (a bit more involved that the name suggests - e.g. 
items appear on the screen according to where they are in the house, 
but print according to where they appear in the supermarket)
- ...

The most complex and ambitious software I have created so far (a 
scheduling system for museums, including the art museum I work for) is 
still in HyperCard. I have plans to convert it to Rev (using MySQL) 
eventually but, since my job is actually NOT software developer but 
website manager, finding the time to do it is difficult. (Especially as 
the software is "mission-critical", so testing would need to be very 
rigorous.)

Regards,
Jonathan  :-)
