  1. Ability to get manufacturer & brand from Android devices

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

    Basically, expose android.os.Build.MANUFACTURER and android.os.Build.BRAND in the same way you have exposed Build.MODEL.

  2. Events fired with dispatchEvent() to filter down display hierarchy

    Firing an event (for example, touch or tap) with dispatchEvent() does not filter down through the display hierarchy. While the current functionality is fine for non-touch related events, it is a problem to be prevented from "faking" real touch events.

  3. Android App Widgets (for Home screen)

    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.

  4. Anti-aliasing

    Looking at the guides the anitaliasing key in the config.lua files has been deprecated. Part of the reason for this is that AA isn't needed on high dpi screens, but it does still make a huge difference on pre-retina iPad displays. Could this be formally supported again?

  6. Isometric engine

    It's currently very difficult to quickly and reliably build an isometric grid. And given its popularity in games these days, it would be fantastic if Corona could support this. Or at least make it easier to do.

  7. Support Audiobus

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

  8. Slide View controller with small dots as indicators

    and it should be linkable to storyboard so that the users can swipe left or right to move between scenes, and I suggest that the normal behaviour of this Slide view controller should have the ability preload the next and prevues storyboard scenes

  9. Simulator multitouch events support

    support multitouches by holding alt/option like iOS Simulator. Because its very hard to publish and install to device when debuging.

  10. Map pan & zoom events and / or ability to retrieve map center

    It would be great to get some information from the map such as events when the user has panned or zoomed the map, in addition APIs such as getCenter() and getRegion() would be very useful, even if the events cannot be implemented right away.

  11. Copycat object

    I would like the ability to, given a display object, make a duplicate of it, say by

    local copy = display.newCopycat(object)

    that would create another instance of the object, synced to its current display properties. After that, the objects would part ways as their properties change, though the copy can be re-synced, say via

    copy:sync()

    (The presence of this method could be tested to see if an object is a duplicate, or another property, say "prototype", that would give back the original object.)

    Basically, the motivation is that you can remove some of the "leaky abstraction" from certain effects and…

  13. 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;

  14. bring back micropayments

    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.

  15. audio manipulation

    Everything to tweak sound effects and background music without loading each time a different - and so heavy- audio file.

  16. Access to iOS VoiceOver

    Text fields should be VoiceOver accessible, and graphic elements should have some way of assigning VoiceOver tags as well.

  17. Support display groups in physics simulation

    Currently if you stick a physics object in a display group and move that group you wind up severing the link between the physics and the rendering. It'd be great if Corona could support the full range of transformations enabled by groups in the physics engine.
