Part 3 – How to make an iPad book tutorial using Corona SDK.



Ok, part 3 is here. Sorry for the delay, I had a little problem with my screen cast software…

So, in this tutorial we are going to display 3 images on-screen using Corona SDK simulator. It is going to be a really simple tutorial yet powerful. From now on you could potentially add as many images as you want to your project after this tutorial.
Later on we will interact we the images, add sound, narration and GRAVITY!!
If you are familiar with the pop up books series you know what I’m talking about. Ok here’s the video, enjoy and don’t forget to comment!!

How to make an iPad ebook tutorial – Part 2

As I promised here is Part 2 of my tutorial “How to make an iPad ebook” with CoronaSDK fast and easy.
I hope you already downloaded the necessary files as stated before, if not lucky you! cause I’m explaining how to do it in this video that I just recorded.
I noticed some outsynch problems, I’m not sure why… I’m using BBFlash to make the videos.
Next time I’ll try with a different one. FYI I already tested CamStudio and it works fine but it creates huge files. I’ll try it again to see if I can set it right.
Ok, less talk and more video:

Update

Hey guys! 
I haven't forgotten about the tutorial I promised, I'm working on part 2 and I think I will have to trim it. I know I've said that I was going to teach how to make the drawings in flash but that's not gonna work, it's just too much.

So the new tutorial will be a basic one using Corona SDK.
I'm currently working on the assets for the tutorial. So when I'm done with that you'll see how easy it is to make an iPad book with Corona SDK.
CoronaBadge_150x144

I'm going to ask you that, if you are following my tutorial, go to http://ow.ly/5YpnS" and download the SDK. Don't worry just subscribe, which is totally free, and then download the windows or mac version.Once you do that we are ready to go.

If you already went to the ansca website you probably seen that you need to use coding. That's right but it is really easy and fun. I promise. I'll show you exactly what you need to do and you can copy and paste code, replace the assets and voila!
I'm positive that you can have the iPad book running the same day.
Next part will be ready later this week, meaning you will have your book ready to show for this weekend! 100% guaranteed or your time spent reading my post back. Not sure how to fulfill that but I'll try ;)

How to publish your iPad book tutorial. Part 1 of 12.


This is just the announcement to my new tutorial about making apps for the iphone platform.
We all know that is not easy to get into the app market. So I decided to give you a break and teach you how to publish your book in the App Store; and who knows even make money?.
This tutorial can not guarantee that you will make money but I’m sure you’ll find this information very useful.
If you follow along you will have your book ready to publish in 6 weeks. You could do it faster I’m sure but I can’t promise that I will have time to post the required tutorials in time.
I have 5 apps in the making and one already published a month ago. You can find it here.
So let’s start.

This is a shopping list of what we are going to need:
1) A story.
2) Images related to the story.
3) Background music.
4) An apple developer account.
5) Download Ansca Mobile Corona SDK.
6) Lots of motivation.
I’m assuming that you already have a story.
If you don’t have any images I’ll show you how to create them in Flash. After that we will download free music for our app. Then we will download the Corona SDK. Later I’ll guide you through the process of creating a developer account; which you need before you can submit your app.
And finally the process of creating the required certificates to test the app on your iPad and submitting it to the App Store.
Sounds easy?
See you in a couple of days.
