Ansca Mobile today announced a new release of Corona SDK and partnerships with industry leaders InMobi, PapayaMobile and PubNub to further strengthen the value provided by Ansca’s cross-platform development framework. Corona SDK is unmatched in enabling developers to quickly create rich, high-performance and cross-platform mobile apps, resulting in more than 20 million downloads, across both iOS and Android in 2011 alone. With these partnerships, Corona SDK developers will now have access to the best options for monetization and distribution for their apps and games.
These partnerships show Ansca’s strong commitment to give mobile developers the high-caliber features they need to build the best mobile apps and games. “Our community is already developing some of the best and most successful apps in the market,” said Carlos Icaza, co-founder of Ansca Mobile. “These new monetization and distribution options further differentiate Corona SDK from competitors and strengthen Corona’s position as the best cross-platform mobile development framework available.”
