Newt, I been nothing but nice here so not sure what you are laughing at, I'm not being a fanboy either or drinking the Koolaid. And I am not the only the only pointing this out. Check out Spriter forums and Gideros forums there are threads there downing Construct for the advertising. I was trying to bring it to Scirra attention that its not being taken well outside of the reality distortion field.
All those "OPTIONS" in your screen shot are basically the same thing, just packaged slightly different for another programmers product to do the work of making it in to a "real app", I use that term loosely.
Also I own 3 new IOS6 devices and Construct's HTML 5 demo games run like crap on them using the built in Safari. Even my Playbook doesn't run them well or the 8 other Android devices I have, so no HTML 5 web games and mobile do not mix.
2 Ipad 4's and 1 iPhone 5, the games that have any action at all all suck, plain and simple.
HTML 5 is not a gaming platform, unless you want to count how many particles you can put on a screen. That may change, but currently I don't see many AAA html 5 games that are FPS's
I stated in a few threads I praised Scirra for what they (Ashley) have done, but the facts are there isn't a native way to publish and those free 3rd party options may not always be free or available.
Also a whooping 10,000 active users for free until you pay, please thats a low number I have apps with over half a million installs tens of thousands of active users still not banking much from them.
I have over 80 published APPs, not a single one from Construct, you know why because it's a crap shoot to figure out if they will work properly with Cocoon / AppMobi etc.
The IDE's I use to create them I know they will work on the majority of user devices without having to rely on some 3rd party hacks or hand editing code.
So newt, seriously what's so funny again?
How many Construct 2 apps do you have in Google Play or the App Store?

I am leaving this thread, because it is turning in to something I did not intend, just more of a public view of other forums about Scirra. I guess the messeger is the evil one in this case so I let you guys be happy in your own little microcosm.
Lol I can't even capture all the platform options.
And he's not near finished with those. Soon there should be Boot to Geko, and I imagine Node for desktop as well.
Complain all you want, but consider the fact that you not only need a license from Apple to publish to Ios, but approval as well.
