App Widgets are miniature application views that can be embedded in other applications (such as the Home screen) and receive periodic updates.
This would allow to develop business applications.76 votes
Currently Corona does not support the basic concept of localizing the App Title for Android devices. This means you can have your application itself, and Google Play descriptions, translated for many different languages, however the title under the icon (App Title) does NOT get localized.
Support for achieving this is requested as a basic localization support requirement for Android.
BTW - The only known way (untested) is manually via many steps as noted by ingemar here, 1/2 way down first page of comments: http://forums.coronalabs.com/topic/38972-does-corona-support-app-name-localization/?hl=%2Btitle+%2Bandroid+%2Blocalization#entry20257162 votes

Since Android 5.0, a basic kiosk mode is supported by Android, called "Screen Pinning". This can be done by an Activity to call startLockTask() which will prevent of Home/Task-Switcher keys, until the activity calls stopLockTask() or the user exits via special key-combination and PIN code.
For simple kiosk-mode applications it would be very helpful if Corona SDK could support the appropriate calls on Android.

There's no way to disable Zoom Buttons of the WebView in Corona and this is quite frustrating because they continously appear on screen using Android.
However, as posted on Stack Overflow, there's a way to do it in Java overriding some methods. Explanation can found here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/11901948
Best solution would be to have a boolean property like "zoomButtonsEnabled" to control this.
I don't know if on iOS there's the same problem.

the newest target SDK should be supported very fast because Google wants this. It is essential for an app to be considered for a feature on Google Play.8 votes
When we send a user a notification it's essential to see the badge counter on the icon. I know not all launchers support badges but the good ones do!8 votes
The current API (https://docs.coronalabs.com/plugin/gamecircle/index.html) of the Amazon Game Circle does not support the API functions:
These would be nice to have because once the user's "TOAST" popup disappears, it is impossible to let the player log out. Or, if log-in failed for some reason, you can give the player a chance to login manually.7 votes
On Android, for local notifications, it would good to be able to select the title of the notification (currently the name of the app), the icon (currently limited to 1 for all notifications), a large icon/show the large icon. This could also include current requests such as grouping notifications, setting the badge number and allowing notifications to vibrate etc

Ability to get manufacturer & brand from Android devices via system.getInfo(...).

Implement the ability to access to the
getContentResolver().openInputStream(uri) function at Android.
This is to create a file with an stream. Many apps uses the contentProvider and send an URI similar to:
Need some way to resolver this, and allow share files in this way in android. Not really share, but, read, and receive.
For example: send a file by email, and open with our app.
If the email app uses the content:// format for the stream, need a way to get the file.
Any chance?4 votes
