Corona - Feature Requests/Feedback

Welcome to the Corona SDK feature request/feedback tool.

Tell us what features you would like to see in Corona by entering new ones and/or voting on existing entries.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • You only have 15 votes. Use them wisely! You only regain votes if we delete or close an item.
  • Write short descriptions/comments to give us context on what you need and mean.
  • This tool is not for asking questions or long discussions. Use our forum instead.

What features should we add to Corona?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

    • [PLUGIN] Upgrade Facebook SDK

      Facebook recently added Facebook Like Button functionality (for Android in their SDK v3.19).

      I would like to use this functionality in my games written in Corona Enterprise, but I can't because corona SDK for Android integrates Facebook SDK v3.18.

      I ask one of the two following:
      1) implement Facebook Like Button functionality in Corona SDK that wraps around Facebook native implementation (so it will work the same in iOS and Android)
      2) just upgrade the Facebook SDK to the latest version so I can use it in my native code to implement the Facebook Like myself.

      Thank you

            • Call back the store.restore() callback even if there are no purchases to restore

              Currently when calling store.restore() absolutely nothing will happen if the user hasn't made any purchases yet. In this case it would much more useful if the callback got some kind of response back, like an empty table, an error message, anything.

              The current way to handle this is to implement a timeout that gives up trying to restore anything after a certain amount of time. Obviously this is a kludge, since there could be a multitude of reasons for something taking a long time to call back when it comes to network requests.

              Previously, it was said that it wasn't…

                • Support Audiobus

                  Copy paste audio etc to Audiobus will allow integration with other audio apps. This is becoming a standard feature in audio apps.

                    • AdMob's fixed size banners

                      Corona SDK currently supports AdMob's smart banners (which differ in width/height on the different devices) which is nice but not perfect, because developers often need full control over the banner size to guarantee a nice looking UI / a good user experience. Therefore I would like to request support for AdMob's fixed size banners (320x50, 300x250, 468x60, 728x90).

                      • Flurry Timed Events

                        There still does not appear to be support for flurry timed events, which should be trivial to add into corona's analytics.logEvent flow.

                        Surely it would be a matter of analytics.logTimedEvent( event, params, timed ) and the addition of an analytics.stopTimedEvent( event ).

                        • Support logging in app purchases in Flurry

                          In order to get revenue data into Flurry, one needs to use the logPurchase() method instead of the logEvent() method. Currently Corona only supports the logEvent() method.

                          • External keyboard support

                            Would be great to be able to receive key events from an external keyboard within a Corona app. This would need to work outside of native textfields, so any keypress can trigger any custom function. With iPad Pro featuring an external keyboard this would be handy for us.

                                • Apptentive or any other in-app support API.

                                  Happy with the ad networks. So now we need to fill in the holes for services used by many good apps. For those that don't know Apptentive helps your users talk to you through the app. Surveys, support "e-mails", funnel unhappy customers away from the rating page.

                                    The loss of superrewards was a kick in the nuts - please replace this with something that allows small mobile micropayments to be taken by the app for purchasing in-app content. Please Consider implementing facebook credits.
