Palo Alto, CA - April 04, 2013 - Corona Labs, the leader in mobile app and game development software, today launches Corona SDK Starter, a free edition of the company’s award-winning mobile development platform. Building on an already impressive community of 200,000 developers, Corona SDK Starter makes mobile development more accessible than ever to hobbyists and indies around the globe.
Corona SDK’s usability and lightning fast development speed are two of the characteristics that make it the platform of choice for hobbyists, indies, studios, agencies and corporations. By offering a free version of the popular platform, Corona encourages more developers to take advantage of the app store revolution.
Developers can use Corona SDK Starter to build full-featured apps for iOS, Android, Kindle and NOOK, with support for more platforms coming soon. Once developers are ready for more advanced features, Corona Labs offers an immediate and easy upgrade path to Corona SDK Pro or Corona Enterprise. To easily implement backend functionality into apps, all mobile developers can take advantage of Corona Cloud, a newly launched and highly complementary set of cloud services.
“Corona’s initial momentum came from the indie community and we want to do as much as possible to further encourage new developers to take up mobile development,” says Walter Luh, CEO of Corona Labs. “Corona SDK Starter eliminates all barriers in mobile development and we’re excited to see more developers join the mobile revolution and build amazing experiences.”
With the release of Corona SDK Starter and the free tier of Corona Cloud, Corona is the only major platform that allows developers to build high quality, full-featured, and connected apps, with the ability to publish across multiple platforms for free.
