LiveCode is Open Source, and therefore, FREE for most uses - you can buy a Commercial license for it, if you need to release your software through the Mac App Store, or if you are not allowed to develop under the GPL.

LiveCode is extremely flexible, powerful, and easy to learn. It is being used both by kids learning to program, and scientists working in NASA projects. But one of the best features of LiveCode is its amazingly friendly and supportive COMMUNITY: lively mailing lists and forums, filled with people wanting to provide you help and support, and making the entire learning process a pleasure.

As has been mentioned before, the KickStarter campaign has guaranteed that LiveCode will be evolving quite rapidly in the near future, adding many, many amazing features that will make it even more compelling - see their KickStarter campaign page for details.

Last of all, the much under-promoted 'Server' is an absolutely gem, and an amazing alternative to languages such as PHP or Ruby - the English-like LiveCode language makes your complex web code easier to understand and maintain, even on complex projects (Google some amazing web libraries written by Andre Garzia for real-world examples).

PROS: fun to use, easy to learn, extremely powerful, compile to Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, and write scripts for the web, all with one language, the future of the platform looks promising, the price (=FREE) cannot be beaten.

CONS: we still have a few months to wait until we get to see all of the amazing features promised during the KickStarter campaign, but at least we know they're coming!
