You can’t code but want to make an iPhone app? This is for you!
I no longer support Corona. These tutorials are provided as-is and I will not offer support for them.
If you would like to check out some tutorials I do provide support for please see my newer work, which supports Lanica‘s Platino game engine.
I originally planned a single eBook, but times change!
I now plan to regularly release small sample projects that are commented to the hilt.
These projects will be a LOT like an eBook in that they will contain the same amount of explanatory text, but they will not let you visualize things better and not have to download multiple sets of files, worry about image names, etc.
I shall be releasing the regularly with each mini-series containing slightly more advanced stuff.
Another benefit of doing things this way now is that I can release these regularly, unlike an eBook that could take me months to write.
This first little mini series is aimed at those of you who have zero coding knowledge of any kind.
This is the most basic set of little tutorials you will ever find, you may even find that they are too “dumbed down” or that there is too much hand-holding going on, but hey, that’s my style!
I apologize to those of you who would have liked to get a bit more advanced, but rest assure, more of these are coming – and they will contain more advanced stuff as we go along, I promise!
This first lot is just to help those interested in developing an iPhone application a place to start when they have zero prior experience. I hope that by making these very basic indeed I can help ease people into Corona nice and slowly.
