Peter M Brigham, a psychiatrist, used LiveCode to reduce the time he spent entering data into a web-based system and, as a result, spend more time concentrating on his patients.
I'll let Peter tell his story. "Our group practice recently had to change to an electronic medical record and I had to stop using the LiveCode-based practice management tool I had been developing and using for 20 years. The new software is web-based, and extremely cumbersome and frustrating. I put together a little utility to facilitate writing notes that is being used especially by the other psychiatrists and prescribers in the practice. It allows storage and easy access to snippets of text, and provides a shortcut for writing certain prescriptions. It took me under 2 hours in LiveCode to get the basic functionality written, and then another few hours to clean up the interface, handle details like text fonts and opening and closing routines, and write a help text. It then took 5 minutes to turn it into a standalone for Windows and post it for others to use. I had it done before the end of the first week the new software was rolled out."

Scott McDonald developed the LiveCode Super Site to simplify finding the latest questions and answers about LiveCode. He was able to quickly write a simple "screen scraping" stack on his Windows 7 laptop that gets information from the web from Stack Overflow, Use-LiveCode mailing list and the RunRev Forums. He then turned it into a standalone application, built for OS X, and runs it on his Mac Mini media server. After processing the data every hour (which is straightforward with the string processing capabilities built into LiveCode), his app uploads the refreshed html pages via ftp to the server hosting the site. Scott enters the blog entries by hand, but said "if the number of LiveCode related blogs increases I will automate that part too!"

Devin Asay used LiveCode to build his first iOS app. Drawing on his academic background in Russian, Devon created a Cyrillic alphabet tutor for iPad. It includes letter cards for each letter, knowledge checks and games to help the user test visual recognition of the letters.

Jan Schenkel developed IconBadger using LiveCode is an in-house utility for his colleague user experience designers. The company had purchased a large set of icons, but they were still missing some for their flagship application. Thanks to Jan's tool, they can now quickly create additional icons by combining database 'table' icons and function 'badge' symbols.

This Much! is interactive visual analogue scale software developed by Phil Jimmieson in LiveCode for iPads. Invaluable for paediatric nurses, child therapists, school counsellors, psychologists and psychotherapists, it generates both quantitative data and qualitative information, using a combination of graphics, text, symbols and images (including photographs). It can be very quickly adapted to explore and quantify almost any symptom or facet of experience.
It allows children and adults with intellectual disabilities to generate and manipulate graphic representation on a scale customised to his or her particular needs. Ratings can be made using figures representing people, any digital image or any text label. The scale can be easily adapted and enhanced with icons to aid understanding.
Andre Garcia used LiveCode to build a tiny web server. It serves both static files and LiveCode CGIs. It isn't meant to replace a full-blown web server but has proved useful for many specific tasks like issuing serial numbers via email and monitoring the status of remote computers.
