Following the announcement earlier this week that Coronalabs would cease trading in May and that the current marketplace would be closing, and as per my post early on in that forum thread, QWeb would like to offer up the development of a new marketplace.
Full details in the link below, but in a nutshell we feel it's important that Corona continues to have a central marketplace, and that this could be a good opportunity to generate revenue that could be used to help fund core development and potentially marketing campaigns. We'd of course intend to take a cut from the revenue this generates ourselves too - this wouldn't be an entirely selfless act - but the intention is that if the service is earning QWeb some income, it would be in our interest to help make sure the Corona software continues to be updated and actively used and the best way for us to do that is to give back some of this income.
To the point, we're a busy company and while I'd absolutely love to just get development underway immediately, we need to be sure there's enough of a call for this first. For all I know, everybody might just be moving on and leaving Corona completely for other frameworks which would render a marketplace somewhat useless! So please have a read through the below link and if this is something you'd want to use, sign at the end. With enough registrations we'll get to work with the aim to get the initial service, albeit probably in a minimal state of completion, up and running within a few weeks. This list will ONLY ever be used to determine how much interest there is in a new marketplace, and to notify registrants when launched. We won't be using this as a marketing list and won't be sharing any details with any other party.
Lots of thanks to those who have already signed, and to everybody who follows.
