Really Great Developer - I own all the software this developer is selling on the appstore, and he is absolutely first rate. I purchased one of his products while it was still very much in its infancy, and not yet on the appstore. He is not only VERY responsive to his customers, but also bases a lot of his feature enhancements on community requests/feedback. In fact, I am so happy with the products, and the service of his other products, I purchased this one even though there was NO feedback yet about it. I knew that if he made it, it would be worth it. I then played with it a bit, and watched his tutorial videos. As expected, I was not disappointed. This is probably the best IDE for CoronaSDK out there right now, in my opinion. There is a competing product that just came out in the Corona forums… Cider, that is based on the NetBeans IDE, and requires you to include a custom library of theirs in your project in order to make use of debugging ( it essentially acts as a socket between Corona and their tweaked NetBeans IDE. This is NOT necessary with CoronaComplete. You don't have to do anything extra for it to work… it just does. The debugging features allow you to simply double-click on a variable in your source code while debugging, to get at the values. If the var you click on is a table, it allows you to drill down on it. The Error catching feature gives you a list of what/where the errors are, and allow you to simply click on the list, and it takes you to the problem. Nice. The auto-complete also gives you a very nice "help" feature that will automatically fill in the required params ( and color code them between required and optional), AND, it also opens some documentation on the particular function you're using. As far as comparing the two, CoronaComplete is much more polished, and feature complete. What I really like also, is that it's its own die, it's not an addition to Eclipse, or NetBeans, and it doesn't require you to add any additional libraries, etc. for it to work. Also, from my history, and experience with this developer, I confidently expect that he will add new features, and tweaks to this as time progresses, only making it better and better. (In fairness to the Cider folks, they appear to be very responsive to their community also, so I'm not knocking them). I am very happy with this IDE. And, I mean what I say, as he releases further products, I'll be buying them to support his efforts. He makes really great software.

Great, but I need more shortcut for many things - Great work! Greate IDE for Corona SDK. I use SubEthaEdit and Espresso before then I moved to CoronaComplete completely. However there is some missing function for me. I need more shortcut for many things. Especially TEXT > Shift-Left(exist but not usual) or Shift-Right is urgent. I think that Shift-Right and Shift-Left match Command+[(left bracket) and Command+](right bracket) respectively. Upgrade plz.... I will give more star ;-)

Recommended for your Corona SDK tool belt... - Totally love the variable dump and breakpoints. The autocomplete is really nice, along with the reference lookup.

Fine IDE for Corona on Mac - I'm currently using two Corona IDE's: CoronaComplete and Glider. Each has its own merits and both products are well supported by the developers. CoronaComplete's main strengths, for me, are that it has a slightly more Mac-like "look and feel", and the autocompletion is (at present) smoother and less obtrusive. There is a trial version available at the CC website -- it's worth checking out.
