With all the excitement around iPhone 5, iOS 6, and Google Maps, one thing you may not realize is that Google only offers its maps on standard Android devices, not customized flavors of Android. Consequently, like the iPhone 5, Kindle Fire and NOOK do not offer built-in Google Maps.

Corona SDK is always getting better and better, and this past week has been no exception. While a few notable additions have been checked-in, there’s been a strong focus on bug fixes to help stabilize and improve the overall quality of the Corona SDK.
