One thing it is to all users, is a seasoned, rock solid tool, without the quirks present in other scripting environments. It allows you to quickly build software that works the way you do. From simple one trick ponies, information managers, a custom accounting system, classroom utilities and courseware, kiosks, or even a commercial idea that could make you famous. SuperCard has been used for all of these and more.New in 4.8 Buy Now

SuperTalk is one of the world’s most flexible scripting languages, allowing a nearly unprecedented degree of control over a wide variety of object and media types. Of course, every programming language can do this, but not in plain English. If you’ve scripted in AppleScript® or HyperTalk, you’ll find yourself in comfortable territory with SuperTalk. If SuperTalk is your first scripting language, you’ll find it easier to learn than most anything else out there. SuperTalk scripts make SuperCard respond to a user’s actions and to conditions in the SuperCard environment; buttons, fields, graphics, cards, backgrounds, windows, menus, menu items and projects, and the data contained in them.
SuperCard’s standalone Help System makes it fast and easy to pick up on using SuperCard. Designed for quick, intuitive access to all of SuperCard’s installed help materials, it is the Language Guide that will undoubtedly be the most visited. Here you will find a comprehensive reference to all of SuperCard’s commands, functions, properties, messages, and other keywords, with each entry chock full of syntax examples, a comprehensive description, and cross references to related key words in the SuperTalk language. And it is all accessible directly from within the script editor, or exportable to an RTF tome for some away from your Mac, late night reading.Watch the Demo
SuperCard's HyperCard Converter will quickly convert your HyperCard stack to a SuperCard project.
