SuperCard has been called difficult to describe. It is many different things to different users. One thing it is to all users, is a seasoned, rock solid tool, without the quirks present in other scripting environments.
As a development tool, it allows you to quickly build software that works the way you do. From simple one trick ponies, information managers, a custom accounting system designed specifically for your type of business, or even a commercial idea that could make you famous. SuperCard has been used for all of these and more.
As a presentation tool, it can free you up from the limited options most presentation tools offer. You can even use it to build interactive kiosks.
As a teaching tool, it can empower you to build classroom utilities and courseware that are truly compelling. And it is an ideal environment for teaching students to program; initially at the scripting level, and then using Apple's Xcode with SuperCard: Suite's Internals Toolbox.
What is new in this release:
This release addresses compatibility with Lion, and is recommended for all users of SuperCard 4.7.
