We’re thrilled to announce a new alliance with Microsoft to allow Corona developers to publish apps for Windows Phone 8 and Windows Store!
In the near future, our global community of more than 300,000 developers worldwide will be able to publish to these new platforms, along with iOS, Android, Kindle, and NOOK. As always, Corona will be best-in-class in allowing developers to maximize code re-use and work with a single code base. Check out the full press release here. You can also read Microsoft’s post on the announcement here.
Microsoft’s support for high-quality apps, together with the variety of devices running Windows Phone 8, make it an ideal platform for gaming experiences and business apps alike. Since launch in 2012, the Windows platform has grown to offer nearly 200,000 apps, with more content hitting the Windows Store each day.
Flaregames, creator of Corona Enterprise-powered titles including Throne Wars, BraveSmart and Ocean Tower is excited for the upcoming platform support. Matthias Schindler, CTO of flaregames said, “Corona SDK makes it extremely easy to publish for iOS and Android with a single code base. By supporting Windows, Corona Labs will make it even easier for us to maximize our apps’ reach and success.”
Beta support for Windows Phone 8 will be available in the first quarter of 2014, followed by full support for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. Get ready!
