This week, we hung out with Spelling Test developer, Brian Park. Spelling Test is the #1 rated spelling app for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, and NOOK. Brian shared how his app was originally developed using x-code and objective-c and how after much personal expense and effort he ultimately decided to rewrite Spelling Test himself using Corona SDK. Even though Brian doesn’t consider himself a programmer, he’s developed an extremely popular cross platform educational app with many advanced features including a completely custom keyboard that suppresses spelling correction when taking tests.
This week, we hung out with Climate Clock’s, Ben Wong. Climate Clock is a beautifully designed iOS weather app that puts the temperature on your home screen. Ben describes himself as a designer who is interested in app development. He has a background in designing websites and used the creation of Climate Clock to expand his skills into app development. Climate Clock was built in 8 weeks while Ben developed his own back end web server, taught himself Lua, and Corona SDK. Climate Clock uses a third party API to provide weather information. The app is very elegant in it’s design and has been written about by Lifehacker, CNET, and TUAW. Climate Clock soared to the #1 weather app spot in the App Store, in a dozen countries, in March of this year.
