  3. Disable Native WebView Zoom buttons

    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.

    Thanks in advance!

  4. PDF Reader For Android

    need a plugin to read pdf files on android, like quicklook on ios.

    I use systemopenurl to display pdf, I think it is inefficient because it requires another pdf reader application

  6. [Plugin] WiFi Direct

    A request to add the WiFi direct methods in Corona. Plugins like Autolan and Zeroconf aren't feasible due to the fact that what I'm aiming for is the ability for a wireless proximity based connection between devices and bluetooth is not really an option.

  7. Update firebase sdk and gps to 11 on android

    In order to take advantage of the new firebase features like phone login and performance logging on android, firebase needs to be updated to 11.

    Google play services would also need to be updated 11 as well.

  8. getContentResolver().openInputStream(uri) to get content stream to file in android

    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:

    content://com.google.android.apps.docs.storage.legacy/enc=Gq8T6z85JlXgQW8eI1KQNgZccktDINxa2ejLY80P_cuXdpvt

    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?

  9. Additional Local Notification Options

    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

    Details are found at https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/notifiers/notifications.html#Required and https://developer.android.com/reference/android/support/v4/app/NotificationCompat.Builder.html

  10. TLS 1.2 as default on Android below 5.0

    Security update

    As we know old standard as TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 are insecure

    Actually Corona support the secure TLS 1.2 and it's perfect

    The real problem born when you install your secure app on a device with Android version below 5.0
    These Android version support TLS 1.2, but it is not set as default protocol.

    So the feature request it's to force the use of protocol TLS 1.2 also in the older Android version (below 5.0)

    It's really important for any business app using security

    Thank you

  11. create a system.setLocationMinTime() to complement the system.setLocationThreshold for the GPS battery management.

    The Android Location Manager uses a minTime and minDistance combination in the requestLocationUpdates methods to determine how often to send a location event. Currently, you use the system.setLocationThreshold (according to docs) to set the minDistance between events. I understand that you currently hardcode the minTime to 1000. Allowing the minTime to be set through a system.setLocationMinTime() would greatly simplify gps capabilities.

  12. timely support of new Android target SDKs (because Google really wants this!)

    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.

  13. Notification badges on Android

    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!

  14. Add support to Amazon Game Circle for signing a user in and out

    The current API (https://docs.coronalabs.com/plugin/gamecircle/index.html) of the Amazon Game Circle does not support the API functions:
    -- showSignInPage()
    -- showGameCircle()

    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.

  17. Support for Android 5+ startLockTask() / stopLockTask()

    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.

    Further references:

  19. Support MulticastLock on Android to stop some Android devices filtering out UDP broadcast messages

    Some android devices drop UDP packets that aren't specifically addressed to them, such as broadcast packets. This makes it impossible to do network discovery services or process data streams that are being broadcast. A multi-cast lock should prevent those android devices from ignoring the broadcast packets.
    http://developer.android.com/reference/android/net/wifi/WifiManager.MulticastLock.html

    An example can be found here
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13221736/android-device-not-receiving-multicast-package

    We would need seperate functions to create a multicast lock and release a multicast lock
