  1. available disk space

    Currently, it is not possible to check the amount of disk space on a device to be able to proactively prompt an error message in case a user is trying to download content. For example, in a learning app, where a user can download training material for offline viewing, there is no way to detect available disk space. This will be true for game assets as well. Request you to add this feature. Thank you.

    • Image sheet fills

      Currently, fills (regular and composite) require a filename and cannot be filled with an image sheet. This should be changed so that image sheets can be used for fills and both paint properties in composite fills.

        • Add system.ApplicationSupport base directory for downloadable content

          Both system.CachesDirectory and system.TemporaryDirectory are subject to unexpected deletion, as stated in the Apple File System Programming guide, and the system.DocumentsDirectory is exposed to the user via File Sharing. We need access to the "Library/Application Support" directory via a new baseDir constant, system.ApplicationSupport to store downloaded content, or as it says in the guide "A game might use this directory to store new levels purchased by the user and downloaded from a server."

          We are facing constant deletion of downloaded content on low storage devices, which leads to a lot of network usage and wasted time on loading screens. Adding…

          • 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.

            • Google Analytics "Demographics and Interest Reports" Problem

              In Google Analytics dashboard, there is a message about "Demographics and Interest Reports":

              "Your Demographics and Interest Reports have been enabled, but your Analytics tracking code does not include the necessary support to show them. Learn more about the simple, one-line, one-time change to your tracking code to add this support."

              The suggestion is to add some native coding.

              • Add object.left, .right, .top., and .bottom for easier relative positioning.

                Let's say you want to position a "Done" button to the right of a text field. For that, you calculate the button's y position according to the text field's y but you also have to consider the anchor property too.
                If after the fact, the text field's anchor is changed, then the button's position will also change and will require some tweaking to set it right.

                If instead, each display object had a .right property that -no matter what the anchor was- always denoted the rightmost coordinates, then changing the anchor on an object would not affect the positioning of…

                    • Make pickerWheel's width and height customizable!

                      Currently, pickerWheel's width is unadjustable, and is fixed at 320 pixels (screen width). This is extremely inconvenient, as it doesn't allow one to create a smaller-sized picker wheels. The whole widget is pretty useless as it is. Please modify this annoying feature and make it's width customizable once and for all!

                      • Add Screen Dimensions for Windows and Mac OS X into native.getProperty

                        For desktop apps & games, sometimes we really need to know the actual physical screen's dimensions to arrange the graphic objects better.

                        Please, add support to screen dimensions in native.getProperty like

                        local w,h=native.getProperty('screenSize)

                        Thanks~

                        • Torch integration

                          Torch (www.torch.ch) is a Lua framework, with very powerful features for neural networks and AI. There is an iOS port.

                          It would be nice to be able to load and execute trained models.

                              Google will soon be releasing Google Daydream, enabling VR on Android & iOS.
                              It would be wonderful to be able to leverage the power and ease of use of Corona to build VR apps.

                                Add an option to set the location of a custom image pin for MapView. Currently it is the bottom-center. An option to set it to the center of the image would be nice - expanding the selection of images (like donuts, center-pointing arrows, target, etc.)

                                  • Allow the group for physics.drawMode to be set

                                    When debugging physics behaviour in games which have camera systems to pan across levels, it would be useful to be able to instruct the physics engine to draw the results of draw mode into a specific group.

                                      • Native maps pass touch events back to corona.

                                        Please pass touch events from native.newMapView back to corona.

                                        Currently, all input is absorbed even when scrolling and zoom are disabled.

                                        Example: I would like a mapView inside a scrollView, but I have to tap around the map to scroll past it.
