About a year and a half ago, I started to write down beginning ideas for CoronaPaper. An online magazine for Corona developers all over the globe, I envisioned CoronaPaper packed with fun, easy to learn, cool information, filled with hilarious competitions and great prices to boot.

On December 17, we plan to launch the first issue, thanks to great teamwork between 10FINGERS and Corona Labs. The first issue is packed with interesting articles, FAQs, cheat sheets, news on APIs and much more.

Within just a week of release, iOS 6 adoption rates are soaring. A combined total of 44.5% of iPads and iPhones have been upgraded, despite the disappointing reception of Apple’s home-brewed Map app. The ability to download iOS 6 wirelessly is one likely reason for the impressive rate of early adoption.
