One of the things app developers love about Corona is the fast iteration.
Today, we’re taking that one step further with CoronaViewer – edit your project from your desktop and preview them right away on your device!
We have an update on the analytics that are collected automatically on Corona apps.
Everyone is excited after the recent WWDC where OSX 10.10 (Yosemite), Xcode 6.0 and iOS8 were announced and Apple gave developers early access to beta releases of the three products. Naturally we’ve had some customers jump on the new systems. We wanted to take a minute and discuss where we are with these various tools.
