We are very excited to officially announce the full availability of Corona Enterprise! As some of you know, Corona Enterprise is a new product that builds on the core Corona SDK engine and adds the ability to call any native Objective-C or Java library. This product completely takes away the limitations inherent in a cross-platform framework but allows developers to still take advantage of the amazing development speed and cross-platform functionality that Corona has become famous for.
We are even more excited about some of the great studios that have already used Corona Enterprise to publish apps. The first two we will talk about are flaregames, an Accel-funded game studio based in Germany, and Mobicle, one of the top game studios in Korea. flaregames has already published 2 games with Corona Enterprise: BraveSmart and Ocean Tower. Both have had great early success, hitting the Top 10 overall App Store charts in 10 and 19 countries respectively. Mobicle has published one game, Venezia Story, which was downloaded over 200,000 times in its first 2 weeks on SK Telecom’s T Store in Korea. We’re honored to work with these cutting-edge studios and to contribute to their success. In the next few weeks we will be talking about other great studios, companies and agencies that are using Corona Enterprise, including several in North America.
Before wrapping up, I want to make 2 important points:
1) If you are an indie developer, don’t let the “Enterprise” name turn you off. We have tiers that make Corona Enterprise completely reasonable for small companies and independents. In fact, of the dozens of Enterprise customers we have already, probably about half are small independent developers.
2) We are 100% committed to keeping the core Corona SDK product as the best cross-platform development framework on the market. We are working hard, day in and day out, to add new features and have a number of great ones being developed right now and on the roadmap. In fact, Corona Enterprise is built on top of Corona SDK and shares the same daily builds – this means that both platforms will evolve together and our entire developer community will benefit.
Finally, as Walter has mentioned in the past, we are also working on a couple of ways to bring some of the Corona Enterprise/native library benefits to our Corona SDK Indie and Pro developers. Stay tuned for more on this in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, if you are interested in learning more about Corona Enterprise, please contact us and we’ll be happy to give you more information.
