Rewrite a Multimedia Game

Tom Bodine of the eponymously named Bodine Training Games LLC used LiveCode for a complete rewrite of the company's multimedia game show template, Game Show Presenter. The quiz software is used by teachers and trainers to add interactive fun to reviews and learning.

According to Tom, "The rewrite of Game Show Presenter in LiveCode only took about a quarter of the time needed to originally develop the product."

Report Personal Accidents

Have you ever had a personal accident at a company site (workplace, shop, training unit), not completed an accident record before your left the premises and wish you had when you got home? David Morgan used LiveCode to build an app that let's you make the report once you get home. It's called Accident Book.

You enter the details, sign the report and it then gets emailed to the company.

David said "133 workers and 70 members of the public were killed in UK workplace-related accidents last year. There is talk of fining companies in the UK £20m per workplace death. Yet even some of the largest companies fail to train staff in Health & Safety or use up-to-date data-protection compliant accident books. I thought a free Android app accident book following the latest HSE guidance would be useful to society."

"So I built a very quick, free accident book for business using LiveCode. I found a lot of the code solutions on the LiveCode Forum and Websites. I simply joined the ideas together."

"It's not perfect but it took about 2 weeks altogether. Most of the time was spent re-working ideas and trying to work with a scrolling app on Windows at 0.25 scale."

You can find it in Google Play Store.

Team Organisation and Time Tracking

Roberto Trevisan of TD Software used LiveCode to help his small business customers organise and track how their employees time was spent in a cost effective manner. He built TCal, a time tracking calendar, that records events, deadlines and working hours on companies' own management databases. It works with a company's existing database which could be running in FileMaker Pro, Microsoft Access or MySQL.

The Tcal client allows employees to manage their events and times through a graphical calendar interface.

The TcalServer manages company shared calendars and interfaces to the company's own management database.

Tcal not only runs on both Microsoft Windows and Mac OSX, it is also available in both Italian and English. It is a testimony to both Roberto's development skills and the breadth and flexibility of LiveCode.

Exercise Your Right Brain

Andrew Walters wants to help everyone be a genius at maths. Just as you need to train your body to run faster become an Olympic sprint champion, you need to train your mind to think faster to become a maths genius. Andrew developed Maths Trainer in LiveCode to do just that.
Maths Trainer tests and helps you improve your mental ability by letting you play fun games to keep your mind fit. The games become progressively more difficult to improve your brain performance.

Andrew originally developed the app on his desktop and said "I was blown away by how easily and quickly it went over to mobile. With a little bit of work I was able to get a fun and full functioning app running on my phone."

Sadly, it is no longer available in the play store.
