We’ve had lots of great news recently, from the public beta of our new graphics engine to bringing John Romero on board as an advisor. But we are constantly thinking about how to give Corona developers, especially those just starting in mobile development, as many tools as possible to be successful. With that in mind, we are happy to introduce Corona SDK Basic – a pricing tier that fits between Starter (which is completely free) and Pro.
Corona SDK Basic, like all other tiers, allows you to publish for iOS, Android, Kindle and NOOK (and soon Windows!). Like Starter, it gives you access to most of our monetization plugins, but it also adds the ability to implement in-app purchases (IAP) in your games and apps. This includes Apple and Google’s in-app purchases, as well as access to the plugins for Amazon IAP, Fortumo and Ouya (and any other future IAP-related plugins).
Corona SDK Basic is $192/year ($16/month, billed annually) for a limited time, so be sure to act fast!
For now, Corona SDK Pro remains unchanged and adds access to Daily Builds and Graphics 2.0. Corona Enterprise adds offline builds and the ability to call any native library from within your Corona app, and is available at prices for small businesses and larger companies. You can see all tiers on our pricing page.
As always, we look forward to seeing what our community develops in Corona!
