‎97 downloads of ABC Tap within 24 hours of launching in iTunes! Compare that to 4 downloads over the last 6 months in Google Play. No wonder developers prefer iOS.

Just Added ABC Tap to the Corona Showcase

I just added ABC Tap to the Corona Showcase. Both ABC Tap and 123 Tap were built with Corona SDK.  I initially used libgdx to build the first version of ABC Tap but I got frustrated with the fragmentation issues on Android after I released it. Corona SDK has been smooth so far. I haven't had any complaints from Android users. That is saying lots because there are 800+ Android devices that you can target on the Google Play store.

Debugging Corona SDK app on Android

To view debug messages from your Corona Android app you have to use the Android Debug Bridge (ADB). You get this by installing the the Android SDK. The ADB executable is located in the "platform-tools" folder of the SDK. Run the command "adb.exe logcat" to see the log from your Android device.
