  • This tool is not for asking questions or long discussions. Use our forum instead.

What features should we add to Corona SDK?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

      • Google Analytics - User ID

        I am really enjoying the Google Analytics plug-in thus far.

        Currently, I need a way of implementing the User ID feature.

        https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3123662?hl=en-GB&utm_id=ad

        I need this to track analytics across devices. Without it it is hard to see the success of our outsourced marketing campaigns.

                • Ability to determine if a point is inside a display object

                  It is currently only possible to determine if a point is inside a DisplayObject's rectangular bounds (via contentBounds). Additionally, when a polygon is created, you can save the vertices to a property on the polygon, but this is sloppy and can lead to bugs. Finally, it is impossible to test a RoundedRect or TextObject without additional algorithms.

                  All of this is made more difficult because code that wants to check if a point is inside an object must use heuristics to determine the type of DisplayObject in order to choose a way to test that specific type of DisplayObject.

                  Since…

                        • Allow Corona Simulator to set the date and time for testing

                          I'm working on a app which relies on the current time to decide which options are open to the user. I can hack the code, but for testing purposes it would be nice to be able to control the time and date without having to change my system clock

                          • Access to Info.plist for iOS

                            To allow access to information defined in the Info.plist file. This is useful in retrieving information such as the CFBundleShortVersionString which is the version number visible in iTunes/App Store.

                            This is a pretty straightforward implementation using the infoDictionary found in the NSBundle.

                              At the moment, coronaWindowMovesWhenKeyboardAppears pans the screen upwards when the keyboard appears for a TextField, but it doesn't do this for TextBoxes. Can we get the same feature for the TextBox?

                              • The ability to extract metadata (EXIF) from imported photos from the photo-album

                                At the moment we can import photos from a device's photo album, but when the photo is imported it's very difficult to get the EXIF data. This is important for photo apps to get the image's GPS location, date-time(when the photo was taken), the photo's dimensions, orientation, resolution, device, etc.

                                In the simulator I'm able to extract the EXIF data, but when importing the image on a device, Corona SDK seems to strip away the EXIF data.

                                A simple way to get access to the EXIF data would be great.

                                • Apptentive or any other in-app support API.

                                  Happy with the ad networks. So now we need to fill in the holes for services used by many good apps. For those that don't know Apptentive helps your users talk to you through the app. Surveys, support "e-mails", funnel unhappy customers away from the rating page.

                                      • Variable scroll speed for the scrollView widget

                                        I'd like the scrolling to be fast or slow dependent on the "flick gesture speed. As it is now, the scroll speed is completely independent of the gesture speed, making the scrollView feeling very clumsy.

                                        • Add inertia field to physics bodies

                                          Box 2D has a getInertia field. It would be useful for moving rigid bodies if this was exposed for developers. Additional the getMassData function would also be useful
