Corona Geek On Air – Episode 11 – Zombie Marketing, iPad Mini, Windows 8, and Mobile App Analytics

Corona Geek On Air episode 11 is live!

During this episode of Corona Geek we talk about how an indie Corona developer is using Kickstarter to drum up marketing dollars for his next app. We also have a great discussion about the iPad Mini, Windows 8, and implementing mobile app analytics using the Corona SDK and Flurry.

Be sure to see the show notes below for a full list of resources that were referenced during the show.

As always, be sure to join us next Monday at 2pm CST and add us to your Google+ Corona SDK circle.

Thanks for watching,

API Spotlight

  • When we hung out with David Rangel, he mentioned that many developers fail to build analytics into their apps. So we decided to take a look at the analytics api in the Corona SDK to see how it all works.

    Kick starter seems like an interesting way to market your apps. I’d like to get someone on the show who has used it before to promote their new ventures.

    thanks for featuring Grooh in this episode, we just have seen that (one year too late :)).

    we have written our own little 2.5d engine with corona, not using any 3rd party tool in this game except texture packer for doing the spritesheets.
