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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to get started on mobile apps 10 July 2013
By Adam - Published on Amazon.com
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad 25 Oct. 2013
By Ashot Seropian - Published on Amazon.com
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Application design 29 Jun. 2013
By Michael L. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The real value of this book lies in Chapter 3 & 4. It gives you the source code to two real life applications instead of just a couple of hello worlds. I also enjoyed the explanation of the code instead of just being thrown off the coding deep end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book to jump start Corona SDK development 20 Aug. 2013
By Christian - Published on Amazon.com
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.
