Corona Lets You Build iPhone Apps Within Minutes

Mobile devices, led by the iPhone, are the next applications platform. Find out how Corona, from Ansca Mobile,?can empower you to create multimedia and graphically-rich iPhone applications within minutes. Whether you are a seasoned mobile software engineer or a non-traditional mobile developer, Corona makes it possible for you to build and distribute highly optimized iPhone apps. Corona can reduce your development time and cost by up to 90 percent!

Simple Scripting, No Objective C

The Corona Framework, using a scripting language similar to ActionScript 2.0 and JavaScript, makes it easy to create iPhone apps without having to learn Objective-C/Cocoa/C++ and or wrangle with the intricacies of xCode and xCode projects.

Flash Animations

Corona?s framework was designed to have very low overhead, and makes full use of graphics acceleration hardware (OpenGL/ES), giving you up to a full 30 frames per second for game animation.


Carlos Icaza
Co-founder of Ansca, Carlos has more than 20 years of engineering and management experience. Carlos managed various teams at Adobe including Flash Lite, Flash Mobile Authoring, and Flash Cast. He was responsible for creating and developing Adobe's entire mobile authoring strategy, now deployed across the entire Adobe Creative Suite.

Ansca Mobile is a venture-backed mobile software company based in Palo Alto, CA, and founded by two former Adobe mobile software engineers who previously led the Adobe Flash Lite engineering team. Ansca team members also hail from Apple and Pixar, and the company's investors are former Google and Microsoft executives.

A Workaround for Flash Apps

Ansca?s technology could be seen as an alternative to Adobe?s Flash technology, which powers lots of web videos and applications, and which Adobe is pushing onto smartphones. Ansca?s chief executive Carlos Icaza and chief technology officer Walter Luh both worked on the mobile version of Flash when they were at Adobe.
