Corona and Facebook Technology Partners
As you have undoubtedly heard, Facebook has been very focused on its mobile efforts lately. Today in fact, they announced the Facebook Technology Partners program. We are excited that Corona Labs is part of this program and we have worked to make sure Corona SDK fully supports the functionality that Facebook makes available to mobile developers. More specifically, we support the latest Facebook SDK on iOS (and will soon do so on Android as well).
We are proud of how easy it is to develop great, connected apps with Corona SDK, and that is no less true when integrating Facebook into your apps.
To get started, we’ve put together two great resources:
1) Scrumptious sample app – This app replicates the functionality, in Corona SDK, of the Scrumptious Facebook sample app. You can find the project files in Corona SDK’s sample code folder (/SampleCode/Networking/Scrumptious), run it and analyze the code to see how it works.
2) Screencast – This screencast walks through the functionality of the sample app and gives you an overview of the code and how it works. You can watch it below.
Once you take a look at the code and watch the screencast, you will be well on your way to understanding how to build mobile apps integrated with Facebook to make them more social and engaging. As always, feel free to ask questions and discuss in our forums.
