Corona Geek Hangout

This 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.
