The combination of Corona SDK and Corona Cloud empowers developers to focus all their efforts on building high quality apps and games with unprecedented efficiency.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Corona Labs, the leading mobile development platform provider, today announces the release of Corona Cloud, a full suite of cloud services for mobile developers. While Corona Cloud is available to all mobile developers, Corona SDK’s global community of more than 200,000 users will enjoy even faster development, thanks to the integration of Corona Cloud into the existing platform.
The combination of Corona SDK, a platform for developing high-performance native mobile apps, coupled with the comprehensive backend services provided by Corona Cloud, supercharges app creation. A completely cross-platform solution, Corona Cloud supports all major platforms, including iOS, Android, NOOK, Kindle Fire, Windows Phone 8, BlackBerry and more.
Corona Cloud provides a set of features that would require the integration of multiple third party services, and makes them available in one, easy to implement package. With just a few lines of code, Corona Cloud enables:
- Multi-player support to strengthen user engagement and retention, by empowering a group of friends or randomly selected players to challenge one another in a game.
- Leaderboards and achievements that can be customized to replicate the look and feel of an app by skinning the on-device UI.
- Chat functionality for users to text and communicate during gameplay.
- Push notifications to engage, communicate with, and retain users.
- Analytics, social integration, cloud sync and more.
“In the evolving mobile ecosystem, practically all apps need to be connected to the cloud,” says Walter Luh, CEO of Corona Labs. “The combination of Corona SDK and Corona Cloud empowers developers to focus all their efforts on building high quality apps and games with unprecedented efficiency.”
Corona Cloud pricing is organized by tiers, and includes a free option that enables any developer to quickly get up and running. Priced at highly competitive monthly rates, all tiers provide developers with unlimited user accounts, leaderboards and achievements. Additional features such as multiplayer support, are available based on each tier’s allocation of API calls.
