Corona GeekThis week, we hung out with Spelling Test developer, Brian Park. Spelling Test is the #1 rated spelling app for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, and NOOK. Brian shared how his app was originally developed using X-Code and Objective-C and how after much personal expense and effort he ultimately decided to rewrite Spelling Test himself using Corona SDK. Even though Brian doesn’t consider himself a programmer, he’s developed an extremely popular cross platform educational app with many advanced features including a completely custom keyboard that suppresses spelling correction when taking tests. Watch/listen to the full hangout for more details.

Also joining us on the developer panel were Ed Maurina, Dean Murphy, and Matthew Chapman.

    E Johnson and David, thank you both for watching and supporting the show. Brian did a great job telling his developer story. He also shared some great tips. It’s inspiring to hear the creativity of others. My favorite part was when he talked about giving the app away for free as a marketing tool to attract customers to his online subscription service. That’s a really smart idea. Maybe we can get Brian back on once he’s had a chance to get the subscription piece completed.

  3. Hi everybody, it was a lot of fun to participate in the hangout. As a side note, some users have visited my site and contacted me with questions which I’ve answered. Feel free to post your questions here or email brian@funexam.com and if I can help I will.

    I’m happy to update everybody once the subscription service launches.
