Corona SDK 2014.2511
A comprehensive and practical mobile development platform whose main purpose is to help users create and design various apps for Android, iOS or Kindle
Because it comes with an extensive library, you can create any application you want, starting from small tools that help you to perform basic math operations to those that allow you to share your network to other devices.
Before using the application, you need to make sure that your system contains all the required utilities, otherwise Corona SDK won’t run properly.
Since the development process is performed in Lua (described as a ‘multi-paradigm’ language), you can easily program the behavior of an application using few lines of code. What’s more, you are able to preview all the changes instantly in the Simulator window irrespective of the app type you are developing, be it game or a business app.
The ‘New Project’ option available in the File menu allows you to develop a new application with ease. Simply specify the name and choose the project template you want such as Tab Bar, Physics Based Game, eBook or Multiscreen. After that, you can change the orientation according to your needs.
What’s more, Corona SDK includes various libraries, including the display library that uses a different API (Application Programming Interface) so it can display and manage screen content such as vector objects, images and text.
Considering all of the above, Corona SDK proves to be a steady solution worth having when you need to build applications in a more efficient way. Since it helps you to develop apps even for Android, iOS, Kindle Fire and NOOK, it comes in handy for both novice and professional users.

What's New in This Release:
- The theme for this release has been around app development workflow. We’ve made numerous improvements to the Corona Simulator, so here are a few highlights:
- Each device skin now has screen dimensions, so you can preview across the various screen size classes.
- There’s also a new set of borderless Simulator skins which are more convenient for laptop-sized screens
- In conjunction, with Corona Editor, we’ve added introspection code, so it’s easier to see property values for display objects, paths, and fills from the debugger.
