Just had an ad for this come up while watching YouTube vids.

Looks like a very cool product and will appeal to lots of people who have that next great App idea but don't want to learn how to program..... until they see the price of $2675. I may download the 30 day trial, but there is less than zero chance of me forking out this soft of cash in the hope my idea will make me my money back let alone a millionaire.

Meh, very inflexible, limited features and very expensive.

Inflexiblle in that it locks you only into certain genres sure. I think the biggest killer is the cost, probably only available to serious developers who have lots of games to pump out - but then they probably already have frameworks written that do most of this. I'm sure if it was cheaper ($99 Monkey price) it would walk off the shelf with all those people who want to make the next Flappy Bird/Angry Birds clone.

I still think it's a pretty cool piece of development gear.
