Sure, why not? The main one's I've seen that have come to mind are editors. but there isn't really any limits to what you can make. Did you have something you had in mind?

My brother gave an idea of a "beertender". Like an encyclopedia of beers from all over the world and one of the main features, besides the complete info, is to id the beer by Just taking a picture of the label. Besides that, i'm still thinking something that would require Just a simple dropbox/googledrive storage for the database. Like an Excel file that i could convert to an array.

Edit: what editors? Could you link one?

There are array editors, drawing programs, and some music players to name a few. The only complicated thing with your idea is recognizing the beer by a taking a picture of it's label. Even if you were just coding it with a typed language it's something you'd want to find some existing library to do for you.

@kossglobal Hey there, I had quickly put together an app for my bosses' brother's liquor company (Rumchata) which I used C2 for. Just a basic recipe app that reads info from a SQL server. It ain't beautiful or anything but it runs pretty well : https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rumchat ... 79731?mt=8

I have created a calculator and a lottery number generator.

but it is easy to create an ebook, a mobile web site and even a other apps for any purpose you wish.

Just think of the sprites as buttons and link them to what ever you want them to do.
use iframes to pull outside content into the app.

It is much simpler to create a "beertender" app using pure html/js with a framework.

You basically make a webpage and it is automatically styled to look like native iOS (or android) app.

It will look much better than something made with sprites in C2.

Actually, my idea is to make an emulator frontend or maybe a one-stop application launcher.

They seems to be somewhat complicated to be made without enough skills.
