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
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.
