  1. 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

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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…

          • Record internal sound/audio

            To be able to record the output generated from the app. Ie like connecting the output back into the input. Then can save into directory

            • 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;

              • 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.

                • audio manipulation

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

                  • Access to iOS VoiceOver

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

                    • 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.

                            • Support for Game Center and Flurry in simulator

                              It would be much easier to work with Game Center if there was support for it in the simulator. Also Flurry would be easier to test from the simulator.

                                  Allow the creation of native phonegap views that can communicate back and forth with the corona lua code.
                                  Example:
                                  -Lua Code: Send a javascript string to be executed on the phonegap view
                                  -Phonegap: Send a json object to a listener function that was set on the lua code.

                                    Add native API support for rendering vector graphics formats (SVG, more) to allow MUCH smaller size applications and not needing multiple PNGs for many resolutions, keeping graphics sharp and small on all platforms and screen sizes.

                                    display.newVectorObject(group, "filename.svg", x1,y1,x2,y2)
                                    will render it on screen like a normal newImageRect()
