Hangout Highlights – Matching Logic and Productivity App Development
Last week on Corona Geek Hangout 140, we added matching logic for our memory matching game. The solution involved representing matching cards as numbers. Download the source code to see how it was developed.
We also talked with Richard Brooke, developer of TaskPad+, a task management business app developed with Corona SDK. Richard shared his experience with using Corona to build a productivity app. He also told us if he would do it again.
