    Hi all,
    I have a question: how to change default size of app/game in iPhone on LUA/xCode. When i start a project in Corona SDK, i choose Game of template and wirte 50x50 of size, but it's not work, still 320 x 480 on my Iphone. So, i need a project with ideal:
    - It's small same like Assistive Touch of iPhone.
    - Always visible when play or open any app on iPhone(same like Assistive Touch of iPhone ).
    - I have two solution: 1 for change default size of app, 2 for transparent background app without controll(button).

    Can you tell me something? Thanks.
    P/s: xCode or LUA, it's up to you, i just need work.

    Are there any other 3d party apps in the App Store that can do that?
    If Corona was built with private APIs, apps built with it would be rejected.

    You'd need a jailbreak app, and this is the wrong forum.
    I don't think anyone has anything against it,
    but most programmers here are maintaining App Store apps.

    You won't reach the public with a jailbreak app unless it's sensational,
    and you won't do what you want to do with Corona (ever).

    To say what xArtx is saying more directly:

    Apple requires that apps take over the whole screen. What you are asking to do is not allowed. Apple can do things like Assistive Touch because they make the rules. Assistive Touch is an OS extension. Third party developers are not allowed to write OS extensions for iOS. Period.

    The only way to do what you describe is on a jailbroken device.
