Dont waste your Money  Time owned: more than 12 months
I was looking for a easy to use programming language that could be used across many micro controller platforms. Anyway this product seemed ideal for simple ham projects. After receiving the product I was very disappointed. The documentation and help file almost non existent. There is very little support on the web page and the user community and support board is totally dead.

You can easily get sucked in by all the hype on the web page on how easy it is to program micro controllers by painting a pretty picture. This software has no potential to let you get past the very basics. It might be ok for teaching schoolkids a easy introduction to micro controllers, but thats all its good for. THE MAIN REASON IS THAT THE DOCUMENTATION stinks.

There is a book available from Elektor magazine which is as much use as blank toilet paper to a programmer. 90% of the book covers the EBLOCK board system and does not even try and help anyone understand Flowcode. Its a EBlocks book not a Flowcode book. Avoid this book at all costs!

Anyway avoid this software at all costs, its garbage.

You will also find that the web page wants to charge you for lessons on how to use the product. If they actually included a decent manual you would not need to pay for lessons!

Rubbish, rubbish and more rubbish. Forget it!
