(Update: it’s now 6!)
We’ve just heard from another Corona developer whose iPad app was approved by Apple, and will be included in this Saturday’s Grand Opening of the iPad App Store. This brings the total to 6 Corona-powered iPad apps in the store so far, and we know of others submitted right around Apple’s deadline that should also make it in.
Again, these are native iPad apps compiled for Apple’s new “A4” processor, not upscaled iPhone apps. We’re very excited that Corona developers have managed to hit this important milestone, even though the available development time was very short — and even though nobody had a physical iPad to test on. Well done, everybody!
In addition, there’s a rumor that the new iPhones to be released this summer will also use the speedy A4 processor, rather than the ARM processor in current iPhones. I’m going to politely refrain from speculation about certain competing products, and merely note that Corona plans full and immediate support for the “iPhone HD” (or whatever it ends up being named), no matter if it runs on ARM, A4, or a very tiny steam engine.
