New Plugin will allow developers to integrate with KIDOZ Network to generate revenue, while building cross-platform apps on the Corona Labs platform
June 2016 – New York – Corona Labs, the leader in 2D mobile game and app development ,and KIDOZ, the largest content discovery network for kids, are announcing a strategic partnership. The newly launched KIDOZ plugin for Corona SDK provides developers with a kid-friendly way to generate revenue from their apps.
When building an app developers must consider which platforms and devices their users are on. This once meant building apps on different platforms separately. Using Corona SDK’s cross platform mobile development,over 300,000 developers build apps that run on multiple platforms including iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, and more. The platform works with leading advertising networks to provide developers with revenue generating tools, and has selected KIDOZ as a kid-friendly monetization tool for developers
Monetizing apps for kids is a challenge: not only are there strict regulations over privacy for kids, many ads provided through ad networks are not relevant for kids, and do not perform for developers as a result. The KIDOZ SDK provides a COPPA compliant way to generate revenue, that is designed for the way kids interact with apps.
The KIDOZ plugin is now available in the Corona Marketplace for free for all developers, and can be easily integrated with apps in minutes by adding a few lines of code.
“The KIDOZ plugin is a valuable monetization option that we are delighted to offer to Corona SDK users in the Corona Marketplace. KIDOZ delivers value to developers of children’s apps, which helps us meet the diverse needs of Corona developers,” says Roj Niyogi, CEO of Corona Labs.
“We are excited to work with Corona Labs to provide developers with an effective way to generate revenue from kids’ apps.” Says Gai Havkin, CEO of KIDOZ. “Developers count on Corona to build great apps and the KIDOZ plugin will provide kids’ app developers with an engaging and customizable way to monetize their apps.”

Designed to provide children with relevant content in a safe way, the company provides developers with a safe and COPPA compliant way to increase engagement and generate revenue. KIDOZ works with over 40 leading device manufacturers, carriers, including Acer, Hisense, Polaroid, US Cellular, Deutsche Telekom, KURIO and more, to power the kids content discovery experience for their users.
