  1. On Demand Resources support for iOS

    Extend current plug-in which support only tvOS to iOS. It seems that the effort is minimal.

      • Twitter keyboard type for native.newTextBox

        native.newTextField supports all the keyboard types, including the UIKeyboardTypeTwitter twitter keyboard with easy access to hashtag # and @ charachters. Great. However, in the multi-line native.newTextBox element doesn't support these.

        Please add the other keyboard types for the native.newTextBox element!

        • Support iOS Metal

          This has already been requested and declined, however, with the latest release of iOS 12 and Mac Mojave, Apple will no longer be supporting OpenGL down the road and this is a must if we want to continue to make Corona apps for iOS or Mac OS.

          It's the future for iOS graphic handling, please make this a priority sooner than later. I will no longer be looking at Corona for any new projects unless I know this will be supported eventually.

            • Mute a listener

              There should be a way to mute a listener, so when you have a pop-up with it's own listener that will make the previously active listener, if the user clicks off the pop-up window. Right now, you have to delete the listener, put up the pop-up and gather your data, then re-install the listener once the pop-up window is gone.

              What I suggest is a new method that will temporarily mute a listener and can be unmuted when you want the background listener to be active again.

              From what I see, I think it should be easily implemented and have…

              • CloudKit Subscriptions

                CloudKit is a great resource, I am using it extensively in my game to sync between devices. However there is a major limitation in that Corona has no support for CloudKit Subscriptions. These are essential for notifying the app when something has changed. Instead right now I am having to constantly check for changes, which Apple advises against.

                • Support iOS11 ARKit

                  ARKit introduces high performance augmented reality to iphone and ipad. Tests show better performance than unity plug-ins such as vuforia.

                  • Run Scripts in app project

                    In order to support crash logging on sdks like Firebase and Crashlytics, adding Run Scripts to app is required.

                    maybe something like this

                    iphone =
                    {
                    runScripts = {
                    [["${PROJECT_DIR}/fabricRun" secretCode]],
                    },

                    },

                      • system.activate("MultiEvent")

                        So, I have built a game in Corona where the user is required to drag their player (touch event) to dodge incoming attacks. In order to shoot and fight back the user must tap on the enemy(tap event). When doing user testing, I noticed the users wanted to be able to drag and dodge simultaneously. So i tried system.active("multitouch"). Unfortunately this did not fix my issue. It seems the "multitouch" capabilities of corona is limited to only events of the same type ("touch" or "tap").
                        It would be awesome if there were more options to choose from than just "multitouch",…

                        • Activities popup

                          it will be great if the existing activities popup has the same functionalities of the iOS native one. Actually you can only share image, string and url, but on iOS the activity popup allows you to open every type of file.

                          For example .vcard files are not recognized while on iOS are directly opened in contact.
                          thank you

                          • Access to Info.plist for iOS

                            To allow access to information defined in the Info.plist file. This is useful in retrieving information such as the CFBundleShortVersionString which is the version number visible in iTunes/App Store.

                            This is a pretty straightforward implementation using the infoDictionary found in the NSBundle.

                            • iOS Remote Support

                              You can pair an iPhone or iPad with the Apple TV using the iOS Remote app (installed via the App Store) so that you can control the Apple TV with your iPhone or iPad. This allows iOS apps to use those paired devices as controllers. See https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201664 for more information.

                              • isBounceEnabled for webView

                                scrollView supports isBounceEnabled to enable/disable the bouncing effect when you reach the end of the scroll.

                                Corona API should support the same feature for webView.
                                It's really needed since some webapps break by scrolling past the end of "fixed" objects in the webview.

                                iOS 5.x+ supports it already with this simple command:
                                webView.scrollView.bounces = NO;

                                  It would be great to have something that could take an image file and resize (maybe crop it too) and change its compression level.

                                  • Expose pitch/roll/yaw info

                                    There a bunch of threads on this topic, but we can't get pitch/yaw/roll info from the gyroscope through Corona. The below forum post talks about which native iOS APIs handle these calculations, but they aren't currently exposed through Corona. Could we get these made available through Corona somehow?

                                    APIs in question:
                                    CMMotionManager.deviceMotion.attitude.yaw
                                    CMMotionManager.deviceMotion.attitude.pitch
                                    CMMotionManager.deviceMotion.attitude.roll

                                    • iOS 8 keyboard, handler that detect the (de)activation of autocorrect

                                      With the new OS, apple let users choose if need autocorrector or not. In some types of apps we need to know exactly if is active or not. Let have an handler to detect that choice.

                                      • Add Game Center support for showExistingMatches = false

                                        Currently the showExistingMatches property is not changeable and the default is set to true.

                                        Adding the ability to set showExistingMatches to false in the gameNetwork Library would allow in app New Multiplayer Game buttons to show the Game Center new game screen (Invite Friends, Auto-Match) directly even if there are existing Game Center matches.

                                        • Ability to Filter Code Signing Identities on Build for iOS screen

                                          It would be helpful to be able to search / filter the list of code signing identities when building for iOS. (I have multiple organizations linked to my developer account, so I see a list of a few hundred profiles.
