Corona SDK will support Windows Phone 8 and Windows Store
Corona Labs , the creators of the cross-platform solution for developing mobile applications, announced the beginning of a collaboration with Microsoft. Support for Windows Phone 8 will be implemented in the first quarter of 2014 and later the Windows Store.
Corona SDK currently allows you to quickly create 2D applications (not only games) for iOS, Android, Kindle and NOOK, using the same code on Lua. There are now more than 300,000 developers using the Corona SDK worldwide. First of all, support for Windows Phone 8 will allow you to release ready-made applications and games, just recompiling them.
Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 are undoubtedly interesting application development platforms. “We still see strong growth in the Windows application ecosystem thanks to companies like Corona Labs,” said Todd Brix, CEO of Windows Apps and the Windows Store. "Quite a few successful developers have chosen the Corona SDK and soon they will be able to easily start releasing applications for Windows as well."
Among the successful developers who chose the Corona SDK, there is a studio flaregames, which released games such as Throne Wars , BraveSmart and Ocean Tower. “We enjoy working with Corona Labs. The Corona SDK makes creating games for iOS and Android extraordinarily easy, ”said Matthias Schindler, CTO at flaregames. “With Windows, Corona Labs will make it easy for us to increase the availability and success of our games.”
A beta version of the Corona SDK with support for Windows Phone 8 will be released in the first quarter of 2014, followed by the implementation of full support for Windows Phone 8 and Window 8.
It is great that the company does not stop at iOS and Android. Support for iOS and Android is getting better and in the light of updating the Corona SDK graphics engine to support OpenGL ES 2.0 and the release of the free version of Corona SDK Starter, a very pleasant impression is formed of Corona Labs.
