A month after announcing their LaunchPad mobile app discovery service for Corona SDK developers, Ansca Mobile has now partnered with app review site CrazyMikesApps.com and the Experimental Game Dev Show podcast to further shine the spotlight on Corona users and their apps .
Each month, CrazyMikesApps will spotlight all Corona SDK App of the Week winners on their site with a video review of each app. Additionally, up to five additional apps per month could be chosen and featured on the review site. Not only that, but all Corona developers will have access to discounted rates for on-site advertising on CrazyMikesApps.com.
“I’m always trying to be involved with the #1 app, wherever it may be,” said Michael Vallez, President of CrazyMikesApps.com. “Ansca Mobile has a ton of developers who are trying to strike gold with Corona SDK and, as a result, a lot of great apps have been made with it. So, this partnership is a great way for them to further promote their users’ efforts, and for CrazyMikesApps to continue featuring top-quality apps.”
Corona users also will be able to get additional shine through Ansca Mobile’s new partnership with the Experimental Game Dev Show (EGDS) weekly podcast. The podcast will look for success stories in the Corona community and feature them in on-air interviews and case studies illustrating their achievements in the independent game development space.
“Corona is perfect for independent game developers,” said EGDS host Action Merchant. “I’ve seen lots of folks build apps with Corona in one-tenth the time it would take with other tools. That’s important to note because it consistently demonstrates how small developers can compete in the mobile app space right alongside the big-name studios.”
Ansca Mobile’s Corona SDK is free to use for an unlimited trial, with subscription options available on Mac (for iOS and Android development) or Windows (only for Android development) when users are ready to publish their app.
