Guest Post: How Flash runs on Corona SDK

After the fallout to Carlos’ post about Flash a couple weeks ago, we followed it up with a guest post attesting to Flash’s mobile shortcomings. But now, indie developer Elliot Pace  has shown us that Corona and your preexisting Flash skills can be used together to create awesome mobile games. No need to choose one or […]

Guest Post: We put the brakes on Flash

Alright, alright — so  Carlos’ post about Flash last week seems to have ruffled a few feathers (as was his intention! :-P). So, now allow me to point you to Exhibit B. Gianluca Pinoci is a former Flash fanatic. A few months ago, his agency BOOM Interactive was commissioned by British auto brake maestros Ferodo to […]

Thoughts on Flash

Three years ago. That’s right. Three years ago, nobody knew who the heck we were. I would tell people I had started a company and it was a mobile software company, and nobody had a clue as to what I was working on, let alone understand the market the way Walter and I did. We […]

Here today, gone tomorrow

It’s called Spriteloq, and it allows you to easily take all your […]

More Flash treats…

Yesterday, introduced our new sub-forum for Flash developers. Now, we’ve put together an index of side-by-side code comparisons demonstrating just how easy it is for Flash devs to cross over to Corona SDK! Case in point:

New Flash/ActionScript sub-forum

Corona has always had a reputation of working especially well for Flash developers and ActionScript aficionados. So much so that we have a little mini-culture brewing in the Corona Community of just Flash/ActionScript people talking to us about their particular inquiries and what-not. So, we decided to give all of you Flash/ActionScript folk your very […]
