In case you missed Carlos and Walter’s webcast following last week’s Windows announcement, you can check it out in its full 68-minute glory below… …So, how often would you like to see us do these?
Our pick for App of the Month shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise. It’s Bubble Ball! Of course, we know you can find out plenty about the game and its creator Robert Nay in pretty much every major news outlet out there. So, we’ll refrain from mentioning all that. Instead, we’ll point to […]

However, we also announced a myriad of third-party tools that also are now available for Corona, created by brilliant users like yourself. So, now, we’ll be showcasing a new tool each day. First up is SpriteDeck, which brings the easy drag-and-drop option […]

In between all the hoopla around Bubble Ball, we also moved to a new office, ironed out some last minute show-stoppers, waited for the Apple approval process on three apps with new Corona SDK features for iOS (in-app purchases and universal binaries), monitored our […]
