BUILT WITH CORONA
Corona has been an absolute staple for us at BorderLeap across our apps and games. Its simplicity, flexibility, and reliability is fantastic and its ability to provide a framework for super-fast development has been invaluable.

Corona is an essential tool I've used for years to easily design and publish my award-winning childrens' apps across both iOS and Android. I could never have created so many apps so quickly without the software - thanks Corona!
Laura TallardyAward-winning Developer
Corona allows me to focus on the fun... with minimal code I can get a fully functional prototype up and running in no time. I love how easy and intuitive the code is. As an artist, it's the perfect tool for me.
Noah MalewiczFounder, Chunky Apps
When we launched QuizTix in 2013 we chose Corona, not only because of its fast 2D performance but because of the speed and ease of development. Since then it has constantly evolved with the industry into the mature cross-platform tool that it is today.
Ian MastersCreative Director, QuizTix
Corona makes game development so easy compared to the effort I had to spend for my first games in the 80s. If I'd had it back then, Donald Trump would be my assistant today.
Andreas von LepelCreator of the award-winning arcade-puzzler "Freeze!" series
The decision to author my word games using Corona was a great one. My reputation as America’s leading puzzle creator is important, and my dev team at Adveractive puts out the superior quality apps that my puzzle players expect!
