While I'm not a 'True Programmer' as such (I'm self taught & only use LiveCode, AppleScript, HTML, PHP and a little JavaScript), I did find LiveCode fairly easy to learn well enough to launch my own desktop app.
It seems some other reviews focus on the negatives, but I found LiveCode to be a great platform for achieving good results very fast. I know I'm not the only one, I've bought some other excellent software from the Apple Store produced mainly in LiveCode.
Focus on the positives and you can achieve a great deal, sure there's room for improvement, but that's true of all software.
I don't understand the comment about not having native controls for desktop apps, I develop on Mac OS Lion and when I test the app it looks native to me, on Snow Leopard it looks native, on Windows it looks like a Windows app, but maybe I'm missing something!
Mobile apps can be made to look native by using a plug-in extension AFAIK, but I don't develop for mobile just yet.
Don't miss out just because some people knock LiveCode, they may have some valid points, but you really should decide for yourself, I did and I certainly don't regret it now, download the demo & take it for a spin.

CONCLUSION: My copy has paid for itself several times over, I would recommend LiveCode to anybody interested in developing their own apps, concentrate on the positives and you could be in profit too.
