Corona is an outstanding platform to build apps in quick time within affordable budget. It is a completely free SDK, making it very cost-effective. A Corona developer needs to code only once and can publish it to multiple platforms(iOS, Android) and devices (iPhones, iPads, Android devices). Corona Enterprise is their 2D Engine which provides developers with additional options
Due to their significant advantages to app development, we use Corona SDK and Enterprise to build a major share of our cross-platform apps. Redbytes is also an Official Ambassador of Corona SDK. Our education app, Panda Math was featured in one of the Corona Lab’s case studies.
We can build exceptional apps 10x faster with Corona SDK. The platform’s own featured API library, allows running basic functions to complex functions with only a few lines of code.
Corona SDK allows publishing on all the major platforms including iOS (including Apple TV) and Android (including Android TV). CoronaCards can be used to include Corona’s features in any native apps.
Corona has its own forum comprising of a community of developers who help each other by sharing tips and knowledge. There are hundreds of useful guides, tutorials, etc that add to the reliability of Corona SDK.
A number of successful games currently in the market have Lua as their scripting language. It is lightweight yet powerful. Corona is Lua-based.
The availability of plugins reduce the development time drastically for Corona SDK. There are a wide variety of them for various purposes including analytics, in-app advertising, etc.
Corona offers great support to quickly integrate virtual currencies, banner ads and app purchases. As they are tried and tested features, there is good forum support for app monetization.
