Using Corona SDK's Widget Library for Fun and Profit!

Use the widget library in Corona SDK to make great looking games and apps!

Buttons, checkboxes, scrolling lists — those are all examples of widgets.

While widgets are always used in business-type apps, some of them are often used in games as well.

This video course shows how to use the widgets in Corona SDK. And while most of the videos show use in a business-type app, they're created the exact same way in a game.

Corona SDK is the best framework I've found for quickly creating 2D mobile games. With the creation of their widget library a while back it became possible to create business-type apps as well.

I've chosen to use Corona for both games and business apps because every bit of skill I gain with one will help me out immediately in the other.

(This course is included in the Beginning Game Development course.)
