  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Ability to check if device mute button is on and a system event when its turned on/off.

    This is important because if background music is allowed the mute button will not affect the game SFX and we need to mute them in code.

  4. map routing coordinate plotting

    The ability to create a route within map view. This will allow the developer to plot multiple points and then create a followable route between these points.

  5. [PLUGIN] Magnetometer API similar to the Accelerometer API

    Ability to retrieve sensor data like, event.xRaw, event.yRaw, event.zRaw in micro-Tesla. It would be almost identical to Accelerometer API.

  7. Tag Support for timers (same method as Transitions)

    Transitions 2.0 allows for control by tag groups. Allowing timers to also support tags would make them much easier to control as scenes are entered and exited.

  8. iOS background services for task completion

    Mark tasks that require extra time for completion upon app suspension in iOS. This will let you do things like saving or audio fading upon user hitting the HOME button. This is a useful backgrounding mode that will not require multitasking permission. Workarounds via multitasking permissions in plist will likely end up in an app rejection (say 50% chances).

    iPhone API: beginBackgroundTaskWithExpirationHandler

  10. reload certificates with Simulator Relaunch process

    Currently, if you change the Apple provisioning certificates, you have to shut down the simulator and restart so it will reload the current certificates. If the relaunch process could add the option to reload the certs, that wold prevent having to restart it while getting the certificates working right.

  11. Include files files / Include files

    It sure would be nice to have include files that would allow us to have the same code in two different places with one source code file. If Corona SDK / Lua would let us have include files like other compilers do it would save a lot of repetitive work.

    Macros (like other compilers) would also save a lot of coding time by removing code duplication, at least in the source code. It would add a pre-compile pass to the compiler to translate the macros and includes into a final file to be processed by the compiler.

  12. object:removeEventListener("all") option to remove all handlers for an object

    Add a way of removing all event listeners for an object with a single call.

    Currently you pass the listener type "tap, touch, etc" and the object name. Why not replace the type with "all" and clear all associated listeners...

    Why you're at it, add an option to mute or unmute a listener.

  14. Enhanced leaderboard functions

    I've been using the Corona Cloud Leaderboards on my current game and I'm really struggling with the lack of options I have using it.

    I've seen people request an option to retrieve only the players' Facebook friends scores once the Leaderboards are requested, and although I think this would be absolutely amazing, the first thing it's lacking for me is a way to actually display the current rank of the player using his ID. It really seems something simple to be added and would be enough for my current project.

    It really seems that there are missing some key features…

  16. Add support for embedded Google Maps in iOS devices

  17. Have your Corona app listed in iOS' Settings panel to change flags or perform certain tasks outside the app.

    Notice how some apps show up in the Settings applet in iOS? They allow you to flick on and off certain features that affect the app when you run it. Having a spot among the other iPhone apps listed in there and providing flags that you can toggle, all in a conforming matter, would be a nice add to an app or game.

  18. Ability to control auto-capitalization keyboard settings

    In addition to the ability to select other keyboard types (already on this list), it would be great to be able to control the auto-capitalization by exposing iOS's "UITextAutocapitalizationType":

    typedef enum {
    UITextAutocapitalizationTypeNone,
    UITextAutocapitalizationTypeWords,
    UITextAutocapitalizationTypeSentences,
    UITextAutocapitalizationTypeAllCharacters,
    } UITextAutocapitalizationType;
