Thanks. I’ve considered that. But my app is pretty complex. There is 
interactive maps plotting earthquakes, elevations, ages, etc, graphics capture 
and editing, writing, lots of complex actions that I think would require a 
major time investment to do on the web. It is actually something I've thought 
about, but I’m not ready to take that on yet.

In case you’re curious, my demo video of the old 32bit version that I’m 
building my update on is at: https://earthlearningsolutions.org

Very easy to implement.  I would suggest a setting for the width.  I think the 
intent was to mimic the look of the mobile scroller which isn’t normally

Fantastic idea that foundered badly when I worked out that a lot of

Thanks for the perspective, Jacque,
Hmm, it could be venturing into a swamp for me, tho. Given the popularity of 
Chromebooks, it would be great if Livecode could be invested in support for 
them. In my own case, I need to be cautious about where I spend my effort. I’m 
a happily retired ex-educator and giving away any apps I make, so getting into 
an area with a lot of deployment idiosyncrasies may not be realistic.

Have a nice thanksgiving, all Yanks and Yank sympathizers!

Android apps run in an emulator on Chromebooks. I forgot to mention that

Haven't looked close at CBs but if it's x86 then an x86 build performance will 
be 8-10 times faster than an app running in an arm emulator. At least that's

If you are deploying a single purpose system, for example voter registration or 
data collection or multiuser simulations/games, Chromebooks are the way to go. 
And I can see LiveCode as the software for those single purpose custom built 
systems.

Re: iOS notification app goes into background doesn't seem to work

Hi Mark - glad you got an explanation.

I am still getting some anomalies in these notifications, and more importantly 
from my point of view I’m seeing problems with receiving sensor messages when 
the app goes into the background. Elanor thinks there is a bug there (tho so 
far unconfirmed - 22999). 

I will let this dog (or dogs) sleep until I hear more from the mother ship.

 Well, it does seem to be a bug, but is it in iOS or LC? It is weird that 
 you get inconsistent results. Mine are more consistent, but still wrong. I 
 plan to write to the mother ship and ask their opinion.
 
 I am also getting perhaps related inconsistencies in the use of 
 locationChanged messages to get GPS readings, or I think I am. It looks 
 like sometimes when the app goes into the background it switches off the 
 effect of
 mobileStartTrackingSensor "location"
 
 which a script can only do by calling mobileStopTrackingSensor.
 
 The apparent effect is that GPS readings just stop coming in, although 
 other activity (in my case, a stopwatch-like timer) continues without a 
 break. I am haunted by the idea that I’ve made some mistake in coding, of 
 course, but it I haven’t then I need to know somehow that the readings 
 have stopped and correct the situation before gaps appear in the record, 
 i.e. within about a second. Can’t do that if I’m not notified of the 
 switch to the background.
 
 I have tried to look at the iOS SDK documentation but have become 
 terminally confused - it seems to suggest that apps that go into the 
 background are suspended and ‘do not receive events’. If that’s so, how do 
 timer and navigation apps work? They still seem to be doing stuff even 
 while the user is using another app to read the news, make a phone call or 
 whatever. There must be a state between being active and just sitting in 
 RAM and doing nothing. What is that state called and how does one invoke 
 it?
 
 Over my head...

Hi Bill,

If you make your app a webpage instead by using
a LiveCode Server, then everyone can just visit your 
website.  It will run on all computers with web
access, not just ChromeBooks.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do!
