Coming Soon: Native WebView and Video

Native webViews in Corona SDKComing to a Daily Build near you: two new API’s that will allow you to add brand-new native webViews and video objects to your project, and do some pretty crazy things with them as well.

Sure, you were able to display websites using web popups and full-screen video using existing API’s, but now you can move webViews and video objects, have multiple different instances of them up at once, or even add physics to them if that’s your thing. (I wasn’t kidding when I said crazy!)

The API’s will be called native.newWebView() and native.newVideo(), and they’ll be available in the next daily build, so subscribe now so you can take advantage of these amazing new features as soon as they’re ready.

And in the meantime, take a look at the “teaser” video posted by Walter a couple of days ago, and be sure to monitor the Daily Build page to see when these exciting new features become available:
