Corona Geek

During this week’s Corona Geek Hangout we talk with Gremlin Interactive CEO, Danny Glover about adding customer rewards and credit card payments to your apps. Danny has developed a custom Corona plugin for Kiip, which offers rewards to users from the world’s largest brands, and he has developed a custom Corona plugin for Paypal that let’s customers scan credit cards to complete transactions within apps.

Both plugins are available now for integration into Corona projects and Danny is going to walk us through code demos to show how easy it is to use them in your projects.

Special Shout-out!

Corona SDK ATT Hackathon Winner, Washington D.C.

Congratulations to Theo Rushin, Jr. and his team for winning the 1st Place Grand Prize at the AT&T Mobile App Hackathon for Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness. Theo’s team built two apps using Corona SDK. One app enables the user to quickly and silently send out a group SMS through Cloud Code and Twillio. While the second app shows a map view of all the users who have sent the SMS message. The combo makes up a public safety app that the judges and various emergency personal (at the event) said would be of great benefit to many users and could possibly help to save lives. Way to go Theo!!!

Thank you for listening to and following Corona Geek:

    Like the Kiip thing but can’t see any prices on the Kiip website, how do they make money ?

    Also is Danny the Corona Staff Danny ?

    Thought I recognised the company name (, sadly not the same company.


    • Hey Dave, yes I am that same Danny. However (and this is important), I have since left Coronalabs before venturing into these plugins. So currently, I only work for my own company (Gremlin Interactive).

      We were always huge fans of the company you listed on the wiki, and are trying to bring back it’s great name, and proud history.

      Hope this answers your questions.
