A little over a year ago, Fire Maple Games owner Joe Kauffman wrote a guest post here about the secrets behind creating his stellar game, The Secret of Grisly Manor. Now, after the runaway success of his brand new game, The Lost City, (in a nutshell, it’s taking over the world!) we’ve decided to pick Joe’s brain […]

The Kindle Fire and Nook Color are built to run on custom versions of Android, and their apps are essentially Android apps. But that hasn’t stopped Ansca Mobile, which makes a cross-platform app development tool called Corona, from releasing a software development kit today that supports the Kindle Fire and Nook Color separately.

Corona SDK strengthens its standing as the industry-standard mobile development framework with new monetization and distribution options.
It seems a tad bit early to do a “year in review” blogpost, but our spotlight yesterday in Inc. Magazine reminded us of the humbling craziness that has ensued in just the past 11 months. Sure, by now you have heard plenty about Bubble Ball from back in January — and that wasn’t just a fluke for […]
This fortuitous milestone pushed Ansca Mobile onto center stage as well. Less than a year later the company says Corona is the world’s number one mobile app development platform used by everyone from teenagers like Nay, who works out of a public library, all the way up to huge brands such as Warner Brothers, Doritos, and Dannon Yogurt.

Well, a Corona-made app called the UK Postage Calculator is being bought up en masse across the pond. So much so, in fact, that it’s […]
