It’s the most wonderful time of the year – time to swap gifts, bake goodies, and read holiday stories around the fireplace, on your favorite device. To spread the holiday cheer, we’d like to share a handful of festive Corona-made favorites. Happy holidays, team Corona!
We had a great event last week, in San Francisco, that showcased 3 different ways of building eBooks with Corona. Our speakers David Gross, Ron Martinez of Aerbook and Alex Souza of Kwik, demonstrated their respective platforms and how they are using Corona SDK in unique ways, to help others create high quality, interactive eBooks.
Greg Pugh is the owner of GP Animations, the company behind the Colin Turtle book series. His books, “The Perfect Pillow” and “Floating Fun” have sold thousands of copies worldwide for the iPad and Amazon Kindle Fire. Recently, Greg was an alpha tester for Kwik 2, a Photoshop plugin that allows designers and illustrators to bring stories to life without a single line of code.
To celebrate the upcoming release of Kwik 2, Kwiksher is hosting an August promotion. If you’re working on an extraordinary story, want to be highlighted in the Kwik 2 PR launch, and are interested in an interview with Kwiksher and Corona Labs, enter the contest!

Well, it looks like you’ll have plenty of inspiration from your fellow Corona developers — including Where’s Paradise?, our latest App of the Week! Where’s Paradise? […]
If anyone in our business has been hiding under a rock today, or still recovering from all the SOPA/PIPA news yesterday, or are eagerly anticipating yet another presidential debate in South Carolina, then you probably missed Apple’s announcement about the new iBook Author tool — their foray into creating textbooks and interactive eBooks.

November was noteworthy in that it saw more non-gaming apps selected as App of the Week than games. Yes, the lone addition to our Hall of Fame Game in the past 30 days was Pirate Island, while Santa Express and the eBooks Trip Harrison Origins and Jolly & Roger’s Misguided Adventures made the non-gamers proud.

It’s worth noting that Jolly & Roger creators Unicorn Labs have […]
