When I saw the parcel my heart sank. I opened it, expecting a substantial book. There aren't as many pages as I expected but the content is very good and just what I needed to get started.

Great book to jump start Corona SDK development 20 Aug. 2013
By Christian - Published on
Format: Paperback
After reading this book I was positively surprised.

Let me start with with the most surprising part, Daniel Williams succeed to explain the basics of the Corona SDK in only 98 pages, which is a perfect size if you want to get more acquainted with the Corona SDK platform before starting a complete study out of it, and reading long introduction chapters before the exciting parts start. Having said that, as the book is relatively small in size, this book is not very suitable, if you're looking for a complete reference guide.

The title of the book might be a bit misleading, its not so much about application design but actually Corona SDK/ Lua development. Unique to the approach of the author is the inclusion of two code examples, a game development example, but also a business oriented application. For the latter one the author explains how to build a simple business app with information about a fitness company. This example can very easily be reused for other sorts of businesses. The other example is a jigsaw game. So if you are looking to either use Corona SDK for a business oriented application or to jump start your game developments this book might be a good introduction.

The book explains the process from installing the tools and SDK up till the release of your apps in the app stores, following this approach really gives you enough background to start making your own simple Corona based apps.

Not bad 25 Oct. 2013
By Ashot Seropian - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
And not great. It can be useful only for beginners.
Code for puzzle game not working, so you need to use sources that can be downloaded from link in this book.
Because of that you can't follow with author

Nice book to start with Corona SDK but with some lack in advanced techhiques. 21 Aug. 2013
By Cristian Duro Baenas - Published on
Format: Paperback
Corona SDK Application design is a decent book to start developing your own apps with Corona SDK, a cross-platform language easy to learn and very powerful. With Corona SDK (API's) and LUA (its programming language) you will be able to develop your very own games and business apps in a fraction of time comparing to other languages out there.

By one hand, the book will guide you to the whole process installing the SDK and making your own app; from choosing your favorite text editor to show you the basic concepts of the API's. It will also teach you the basic concepts of programming (loops, variables, etc). I think Daniel Williams has made an incredible work explaining the very basic concepts in only a couple of pages. By the other hand, the source code included with the book is also very valuable; it is well commented, well structured and nicely done.

To be fair, it's a little basic if you want to learn some advanced techniques of the SDK (compared with other Corona SDK books), but it is a must have book if you have not much knowledge about programming and the SDK. I think it is the best book out there if all that you want is to start from the beginning with the Corona.

I missed some advanced techniques, but I would recommend it to all beginners out there.

Excellent book.. Walks you through each step 20 Aug. 2013
By Rajesh - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have found the book easy to use even at a beginner level. It do not walk much in front of us, but slowly walks just one step ahead of us. This is an impression I have about the general way of presentation given in this book. Language is simple, codes are nice and content is well organized. It do not immerse us into a world of API's before knowing how to intelligently pick them. Best book to begin your corona skills.

Great way to get started on mobile apps 10 July 2013
By Adam - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great book for getting started with mobile application development. It explains the concepts in small pieces and applies them one at a time. The example apps are easy to follow and useful in illustrating the power and capabilities of Corona SDK. I would recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about mobile application development.
