The developer is currently seeking for an option to get the created game out of the editor for publishing.
What do you guys think about it?

    Not to be a Corona fan boy or anything (in fact I've been getting into Unity lately), but if you have to learn Lua to prototype your game, you might as well just use Corona. Same programming language, but you can publish on the app store. Maybe if it was drag-n-drop, that would be a differents story.

    Was corona holding back your game developing abilities?

    This is classic Next Gen. Get paid to almost finish a game in one SDK and then move on to the next one.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    I got a promo code for this a couple weeks back but didn't really mess with it.

    I just was thinking today that going back to Corona is the next step in my development stage. Gamesalad is a decent product, but the lack of support, slow/broken releases, and that fact that code can be stolen without any trouble and the company seems not to care is disappointing.

    I was eagerly waiting for this :) It is fantastic fun and a real joy to use. If you want to start learning programming with Lua and have an ipad then you cant go wrong.

    Exactly, the iPad is the whole point of this. Its a game development on the go. Don't get me wrong but iPad is much easier and funny to use when you are on the go or away from your Mac. Especially when you don't have a macbook.

    I bought this but haven't gotten a chance to look through it yet.
    For me it's a good way to practice for learning Corona.
