I just LOVE your software and your regular updates (i'm also a owner of GS pro account and certainly NOT used to this).
If you guys managed to build and iOS exporter i know many many with me would switch from Gs to Scirra.

Keep up the good work !!





Cheers !!

A proper mobile exporter would be nice. The only reason I haven't tried making android games (or even just little apps) if because I'd have to go through a 3rd party company.

Let them finish the HTML5 exporter first.
Then maybe, they'll consider other exporters.

The subject has been discussed many times already, it always comes down to :
* Scirra has plans
* Scirra has the biggest todo list you've ever seen
* Scirra focuses on their roadmap and making the HTML5 exporter the more complete/stable possible.

For now, you have to settle with the current methods available. (iOS webapp, phonegap), maybe, in the future, they'll focus on a mobile exporters.

I'm surprised more people haven't taken up iOS web apps. Not only do they work on other kinds of phones, but they work very similarly to native apps thanks to Construct 2's offline support... and you even have the opportunity to set up your own payment system on your website and avoid the 30% cut Apple take, not to mention the fuss caused by their approval process!

Performance is a problem, but we've got ideas about how that can be improved in future too. We're a 2-man company - we don't have people and money to throw at problems like this :-\Ashley2011-11-30 10:49:06

My post was in no way focused on anything negative. I think it's fantastic how a 2 man company can acheive such a fantastic product in no time at all. And the updates comes so often so i have to pinch myself to see that i'm not dreaming.
I think the problem for me and many others btw is that we don't have knowledge on how to set up a website for webapps with paymentoptions.

Keep up the good work

Cheers !!
