LiveCode consist of three key concepts for the application development process. They are: the user interface, the coding language and lastly the live coding part. You have to first start with the interface section. Simply open a new project and then by dragging items onto it on the required area.

Lay out grids and creating tables, fantastic text, animating objects is also possible here without much coding. And the list of functionality provided by this tool is very long list.

LiveCode is open source software meaning that it is available for free for basic use. It is existing under a dual license and these two licenses are GPL3 and Commercial license. Basically it means that any person can download and access LiveCode for free and start developing applications.

You also have right to contribute to LiveCode by accessing and observing the source code of it. You can also fix bugs; add more fantastic features or building different components. The open source version of this LiveCode software allows you to redistribute the software that you've created as long as that software is also developed as open source under the terms and conditions of the General Public License or GPL. If in case you want to develop a closed source version of this software then you can simply purchase a commercial based license. And then you can term it as closed source version.

So I think all the developers must try LiveCode at least once. Maybe they will feel more comfortable with this software as compared to others because this tool is really very simple to use.
