“My face almost melted from the sheer awesomeness of it.”
It has been a very busy month for the Corona SDK!
I’m sure we’ve all seen the Mac Apps video by now – (missed it? See it here.) how AWESOME is that?
I’d love to be able to build some apps for the Mac App Store – I think it’s a fantastic way to boost a developer’s revenue and I’m really excited about it. (Not only for extra app money, of course – but for the possibilities this opens up in the future for all of us.)
Then of course there’s the iPad Level Editor – (video) – my face almost melted from the sheer awesomeness of it.
The ability to build for both the NOOK and the Kindle Fire is also, obviously, totally great – although I can’t actually buy one is this country. (D’oh.) I do have a NOOK Color here I was sent from the US though and am looking forward to having a play with that in the near future.
Finally, there’s Storyboard (API link) – a new, official, Ansca-made way to switch between “scenes” or “screens” in your apps.
All of this has come out in the space of under a month! How insane is that?
It’s crazy to look at other third party SDKs that are not only no where near this level of awesomeness but are actually falling further and further behind every day.
It’s just another reason (well, five reasons, actually,) to be glad to be a Corona SDK developer.
