Corona Geek #123 – Android TV Publishing, Native Text Input, and 2015 Goals
During this week’s Hangout, artist, animator, and Corona Developer, Greg Pugh shared his experience with publishing apps to Android TV. Greg recently published his children’s book companion game, Maddie Bear Snack Time, to Google Play. Greg shared how he did it and what we need to know to do it ourselves.
Also, Ed Maurina (aka Roaming Gamer) took us through code for resizing text and moving text boxes around on the screen. Working with text may not sound as glamorous as vector math and physics engines, but it can be very important if your app depends on it.
