This is the story of a small Indie Studio based out of US/India. When we first started in 2015 with our apps, we were actually planning to develop the apps using Android Studio. During this time, we came across Corona SDK.
When we first started playing with Corona SDK
, we were amazed at the speed at which we can develop the apps.
We publish app on below stores
Why Do We Love Corona??
- Simple learning curve – Quick to learn and code. We started coding the apps on the same day we started learning Corona
- Can be coded using simple LUA
- One code, Publish all stores
- Quick Prototyping
- Easy testing using Simulator
- Documentation to minute details also
- A rich forum help
- Concept of plugins

Horizontal vs Vertical Scaling of Apps/Revenues
Being amazed at the speed at which we can build the apps, we slightly changed our directions and started working on simple apps in Kids Category and Children category. These Children apps actually helped us to test the waters in Google Play market.
We developed as many as 100+ Children apps in 100 days in 2015. We started selling these apps ( some are free, some are paid and some are with ads) on various stores like Google Play Store, Nook Store and Amazon Store. We saw some good revenues with Nook store and started working on apps for wider audience. After a few days, we saw some good prospects with our apps on Google Play and Amazon store. So, we started concentrating more on Google Play.

Our other app Find the Differences Ultimate is another major success with 10K installs and 4.2 start positive rating in Google play.

Another big help we did ourselves is that in the process of creating Children Apps, we created great templates and children content. If anybody is interested in Children content/Children Apps and would like to collaborate with us, please reach us. Most of these apps were done for Nook Store at Smart Kids Fun Lab – Children Apps for Google Play

We are in the process of porting these to other stores.
Next tasks ahead

2) Start publishing apps on App Store
