Does Corona support reCAPTCHA? I need it to implement this feature on my app and as far as i can see there is documentation for Android, but there is none for iOS for Corona.
Do you guys have any expierience with reCAPTCHA on mobile?

@XeduR I want to prevent unwanted, bot-made, created outside my application requests to acquire authentication token for my app.
And since my back-end and front-end is already using reCAPCHTA i want use the same solid mechanizm for my mobile apps.
Yeah, writing a Corona Plugin is the easiest way to implement reCAPCHTA in Corona application. It will go easy on Android since is well documented.
My biggest fear is iOS where i only saw one plugin and its made in swift. Sadly swift cannot produce static .a librares, so i have to rewrite this in obj-c, in order to make Corona plugin. this can be really hard.
So i made this thread, maybe someone heard about reCHAPTA plugin for Corona, or made simple and working iOS implementation of reCHAPTA for Corona.
I believe Corona plugins can be made with Frameworks in addition to .a files for iOS. I think there has to be some bridging to get Swift to talk to C++ which is where the Native to Lua bridge lives.
But I guess it may be ignorance on my part, considering that mobile apps are, generally speaking, not something scriptable (though Apple just added Shortcuts which could be used for this I guess), wouldn't bots require rooted/jailbroken devices? It feels like a solution looking for a problem. Though I guess since you're protecting a backend script that's doing double duty, there may be a need.
Is this a serious issue?
I'm trying to find out if there is an example of Swift based plugin, but it may be a couple of days.
I actually saw a reCapture being used in a mobile app. However, I can't confirm that it was running as a native feature of that app or if it was something running in a webView. Have you considered using a native.newWebView() for it? It may require some tinkering to get it to work.
