Storyboard/Composer is finally here!

After many months waiting Corona Labs to release their new Composer API (their official scene management library that is now replacing Director, the one Kwik has been using since its first days, previously known as Storyboard), I am glad to share that, since build 2014.2150, the new library is available. Before anything, a would like to thanks Alex Frangeti from Corona Labs, who dedicated hours helping me to make the code compatible with the library. What a great guy! IMPORTANT: only Corona Pro and Enterprise paid users can access the daily builds. Corona Starter and Basic users will need to wait a bit more till the next Public Release. If you…

Introducing the Artist Spotlight – Anna Hines

Starting today, once a month we will introduce an artist, using Kwik to create storybook or games. The idea behind the Artist Spotlight is to promote great users, creating amazing apps. For this introductory posting, I would like to present Anna Hines, who has used Kwik for a long time, creating beautiful storybooks, the last one, “Bean’s Night“, received the Kirkus’ Star’s Review, a very hard to achieve recognition. Kwiksher’s questions are in bold, to facilitate the reading. Feel free to send more questions to Anna via comments below. I am sure she will appreciate. Enjoy! Tell us a little bit about you. Where are you based, for how long are you…

Welcome 2014!

My letter to you who, directly or indirectly, became part of my life in 2013: Dear all, What an year we had in 2013! I am truly grateful for your input helping shape Kwik and Kutt but, more than that, for the opportunity you gave me to improve my skills and become a better person. I honestly ponder about all words of incentive, support and friendship you sent. I know how time is short for providing unpaid feedback and requesting for things that should be work properly when they are not. You are really great! In a market that is still in its infancy (more on that on Crossing the…

Contest: Design the new Welcome Screen image!

When the major release of Kwik comes next year, several new things will be announced, including the end of the Flash settings process. To celebrate the dead of this painful/annoying process, I would like to invite any Kwik user (paid or not) to participate in a contest to create the illustration that will replace the actual beta image below: This image will appear when the user launches Kwik for the first time. It has the purpose to salute new users and remind them about the importance of properly resize the plugin panel and personalize the Settings. Welcome Image Contest Design an illustration that covers the window purpose (mentioned above) and…

Crossing the Chasm with Mobile Apps

Reading my emails this morning, I was surprised with a particular one coming from Moglue, a long time competitor of Kwik. After three years promoting and selling their DYI (do it yourself) storybook tool, they just announced they are closing the business due lack of continued funding (according CrunchBase, Moglue has received a total of $990K in the period of 2 years). Although  the announcement is really surprising (I wish Kwiksher had the almost $1M in investment as well), there are a few indications happening in the market at this moment that may explain some of their reasons. Just to make things clear, my words below are just assumptions as…

Introducing Kutt

Today we introduce Kutt, the fastest way to design interfaces for different platforms! Kutt, our second Photoshop plugin, aims to support creatives by speeding up the creation of user interfaces for a variety of device resolutions and sizes. Design once and Kutt does the rest of the job, exporting images to different resolutions and creating a “Developer Report” that shows size and positioning of each file generated, speeding up the task of your developer re-creating the interface while coding. Kutt also exports icons and compress all png files for you. While other competitors can also generate more than one image per layer, usually they create only images for iOS (@1…

Update on Kwik and other things…

First of all, I would like to share my discomfort with the lack of updates on Kwik. Many of you are patiently (other not so much :)) waiting for the Storyboard integration that seems never get alive from Corona Labs. The last info I have says it is coming in a near Daily Build (meaning only Corona Pro users will get access to it first). Unfortunately no dates are set for that yet. The good news is Corona just released their latest Public Build (2013.2076) and, probably they will work the beta testing of the new Storyboard in the next daily builds. Fingers crossed! Although I can’t do much about…

Today I talk to Julian Stokoe, from Yoozoo Books. He is the author of Have You Heard?, our October’s App of the Month. Tell us a little bit about you and your studio.
