  2. Automatically Manage Audio Compression Formats For Better Mult-Platform Support

    PROBLEM:

    As described in various posts and in documentation, handling audio file formats is something that takes special attention, even though the rest of the SDK handles most other multi-platform issues very elegantly. However, dealing with compressed audio formats presently requires too much "manual intervention" and duplication of effort (even if you have done your homework on what devices handle what formats best).

    See the following references for some background info:

    http://www.coronalabs.com/blog/2013/03/26/androidizing-your-mobile-app/
    http://docs.coronalabs.com/api/library/audio/loadSound.html

    SOLUTION:

    I would like to suggest that the SDK helps manage this by allowing us to provide uncompressed audio content (e.g., 16 bit PCM WAV and/or…

  4. Inter-App Audio support

    Part of IOS 7 announcement is a new API for MIDI and sharing of audio between apps. The Audio Unit framework (AudioUnit.framework) adds support for Inter-App Audio, which enables the ability to send MIDI commands and stream audio between apps on the same device. For example, you might use this feature to record music from an app acting as an instrument or use it to send audio to another app for processing. To vend your app’s audio data, publish a AURemoteIO instance as an audio component that is visible to other processes. to use audio features from another app, use…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Augmented Reality

    I want to use camera to recognise images and overlay sprites or objects as replacements of the recognised image. I'm using Vuforia with Unity because I can do that on Corona SDK http://www.qualcomm.com/solutions/augmented-reality

  8. Notification grouping [iOS,Android]

    Whatsapp like notification grouping. To give an example:
    [5 new moves from 3 players] instead of 5 separate push notifications:
    [player A has sent you a new move]
    [player A has sent you a new move]
    [player B has sent you a new move]
    [player B has sent you a new move]
    [player C has sent you a new move]

  12. [Plugin] Soundcloud Player Integration

    It would be great to have the player from soundcloud integrated into an app. Imagine to be able to stream from your existing account and be able to customize it, which means to have the option to only get the stream itself without the player UI( still displaying the SC logo for copyright reasons) and be able to control it from outside(play, pause, skip, previous, etc... )

    The music stream should definitely be able to play in UIBackgroundMode ( Suspended mode ) too.

    Some people would maybe also like to get the chance to upload music into their account straight…

  13. Access to raw audio samples when recording

    I would like to be able to access the actual audio samples when I am recording (from e.g. the microphone). This is particularly interesting when wanting to visualize audio and/or do some FFT or audio manipulation with it.

  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…

  15. updateScrollableArea to ScrollView

    Would be nice if we could force the scroll area to re-evaluate it scrollable area after moving objects around inside.

    For instance, setting and object to nil and then calling could shrink the area if the item was at the bottom. Moving an item lower than the lowest item previous was could re-evaluate as if a new item was inserted.

    At the moment, you have to add a dummy object to extend a scroll area, and you cannot shrink it once extended.

  18. "official" OOP implementation

    I am aware that there are many lua OOP frameworks, but we believe that CoronaSDK should have its own OOP implementation.
    this will
    1- remove the hassle of choosing and implementing OOP lib
    2- allow the community to have the same base code so it is easy to share code and libraries
    3- make it easy to manage memory

    I admit the storyboard had solved some parts of the problem but we need more

    no more spaghetti code

  19. transition.to speed

    The title says most of it! Instead of having the object move to the coordinates by time it can be by speed! I was just fooling around with the "Tiny Game Tutorial" on youtube and there is a large problem of the player moving where i touch slowly if i press it near the player. This new feature would just be a simple parameter that would maybe be calculated by the object moving a X amount of pixels per second.

    Thanks,
    Sam

  20. Simplify "Business App" Data Entry/View

    Consolidate usage of widgets into simple dialogs to make data entry/viewing more straightforward.
    I'm envisaging something similar to IupGetParam (Just search for it)

    I think this would strengthen corona's move towards supporting "business apps".

    Needs to include:
    textfield input
    widgets
    automatic positioning of widgets/textfields/labels
    if more widgets than will fit in one screen then scroll
    OK/Cancel

    If also integrated with sqlite handling then would make editing of a database record doable very simply indeed.
