I know Corona is not supporting the Chromebook BUT I have a question if it is possible to detect if an app is running on a chromebook somehow?

 

Does anybody have one and can let me know please?

I don't have a Chrome OS to test on and I'm not sure, but have you looked at what values are returned for environment and platform?

local environment = system.getInfo( "environment" )
local platform = system.getInfo( "platform" )

I don't have a Chrome OS myself. That was the main reason for me to ask here. Thanks for the hint. Now anyone with a Chromebook should be able to use the code to get the info. I really appreciate all help!

As a side note since I don't have the answer to your question. I have a couple of USB keys with this software and can run a cromebook basically on anything. If it can boot from the USB key it is a cromebook.
