    This is really great news, thank you a lot for this!
    Could you please tell which minimum build number should be used together with this plugin?
    In documentation mentioned build number 2013.1202, but I’ve tried with my current one 2013.1197 and it is also working. It is Ok to use it with the older build also?

      Ed – you will probably be fine with #1197. The number in the docs is just the last number that testing was done with, so it will work for sure. But most of the time it will be backward compatible (unless it somehow uses somehting that was not previously available).

    Just added play haven into an app and it works great on iOS and most of my Android hardware. However on my HTC Desire S it throws up this error when I call init – java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError any ideas?

    Hi Inna

    I can’t access that part of the forum either. I posted under Android here:

      We just fixed a permission setting on this thread. Everyone should be able to access the forum thread now. Apologies for the confusion, please let me know if you have any issues.

        Hi Inna, I still haven’t heard back from anyone about the Android 2.2 compatibility problem?

    Is ‘playhaven’ available only on the upgraded version of Corona SDK(The purchased one)? 🙁

    Hi J.A Whye. Yes, the webpage says so but the Corona SDK still pops up the error which says that you can not download that plugin until you upgrade your SDK.
