Corona Store: Flashlights, Vibration, and Text to Speech

We have a few exciting new plugins available on the Corona Store: Spiral Code Studio hits us yet again with LED flashlight control, vibration control, and text to speech.

Please visit the store to activate plugins, or to submit a plugin yourself.

1. Flashlight

By Spiral Code Studio

The Flashlight plugin provides access to the flash LED light source, which can be used as a torch. This works on Android and iOS.

Using it is quite simple:

Check it out on the Corona Store.

2. Vibrator

By Spiral Code Studio

The Vibrator plugin provides you a fine control over vibration ability of Android devices. iOS devices, unfortunately, lack such customization.

Check it out on the Corona Store.

3. Text to Speech

By Spiral Code Studio

The Text-To-Speech plugin enables your applications on Android and iOS to speak various text in various languages. You can control pitch, rate and volume.

Check it out on the Corona Store.

    Hi there!

    Very cool to see that these are free plug-ins! Thanks, Spiral Studios! For the record: things like this definitely make me more inclined to pay for other stuff from a developer.

    I’m trying out the sample version from github and I keep getting this error:

    ?:0: attempt to index global ‘network’ (a nil value)
    stack traceback:
    ?:in function ‘downloadManifest’
    ?”in function ‘downloadQueuedManifests’
    ?:in function
    ?:in main chunk

    Do you have an idea of whats going on?

    Really cool plugins guys!
    Not having text to speech functionality was the reason I couldn’t developed an app cross platform!

    These are great plugins! I wish the app did not pause when I use the flashlight. I set it to show the light for as quick as 20ms and it was still on longer than that and the app pauses while it is on. Any way around this?
