In previous posts, I shared a new way to think about virtual pixels (points) on iOS and the nuances of density independence on Android. Today, I’m going to talk about virtual pixels in Corona and explain how Corona virtual pixels can be made to look like native iOS/Android virtual pixels using “adaptive” content scaling.
In a previous post, I discussed physical (real-world) screen dimensions and how Apple applied this principle to its line of iOS devices. In this tutorial, we’ll explore the nuances of density independence on Android.
With the iPhone 6 Plus, it’s no longer possible to achieve “pixel perfection” on iOS. In this article, I’ll outline a more intuitive way of understanding what’s happening and how it relates to physical length.
We now have an Amazon GameCircle plugin for Corona developers.
As of Corona SDK build #2455, Game Center (iOS) has been moved to a plugin. Read further to learn more.
It appears Apple has been making changes a little too quickly lately. Their sudden changes to the app submission filters gave heartburn to many iOS developers, including yours truly. And then just today, they pulled iOS 8.0.1, their minor update to iOS 8, on the same day they released it.
Of course, Apple changed a number of things with iOS 8 that have affected iOS app development. We’ve been tracking these and wanted to give you a summary of the known issues in Corona and their status.
Apple has changed the way it allows 3rd party applications to run in the latest release of OSX Mavericks (10.9.5) and OSX Yosemite will have the same requirements.
Facebook is now a plugin on Android starting in build 2014.2430.
You may see an error when submitting an iOS app. This is due to a very recent change by Apple. Read on to see what to do.
We are doing an update on the public release. The new one is 2014.2393.
