Bypassing Apple in app purchasing is technically trivial, plenty of apps have done it for years and they have followed the App Store rules when doing so. Physical services (eg Plumbers) and physical products (eg Amazon) they cannot use Apple IAP. Digital goods and services (eg Epic) are

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. Kee Nethery > On Nov 26, 2020, at 9:19 AM, J.

Is it possible to implement Mac App Store in-app purchases in LiveCode?

2021-01-03 Thread kee nethery via use-livecode

anyone doing in-app purchase on macOS?
