Corona feature requests and feedback
I’m excited to announce a new feature request/feedback tool that will help us be more responsive to the needs of Corona developers. To date, our forums have been (and will continue to be) a great place for asking questions about Corona and engaging in discussion. However, they are not the best place to keep track of feature requests and gauging their popularity. We now have a solution that will not only allow us to do this better, but one that will also complement the forums.
If you have a feature request for the Corona Engineering Team, just go to our feedback tool (http://feedback.coronalabs.com) and start typing in a description of the feature. You will then have 2 options:
1) If the auto-search function brings up the feature you want, just vote for it (1 to 3 votes)
2) If you are requesting something new, post the new feature (and vote for it)
A short description/comment is useful, especially if it gives us context on how you see yourself using it. But please remember that this tool is not for longer form discussion or for asking questions – our forum is a better place for both these things.
For Corona SDK, you will have 15 votes to allocate across features. So use them wisely! The goal of the tool is to surface the features that are most important to the community, not to vote on everything and anything.
Finally, we plan on adding single sign-on to this tool (so that you can use your existing Corona account) in the future. For now, you will have to enter your email address the first time you add/vote. Don’t worry, your email address won’t be used for any other purpose and you will not receive more emails from us as a result of using the tool.
That’s it – please tell us what you would like to see in Corona! We will monitor the tool and it will play an important role in deciding what makes it into our internal roadmap and how things are prioritized.
