Overall Satisfaction with Unity

Unity Technologies is a piece of software that you can use to publish your game to Google Play. Google Play requires a signed certificate to publish your application. I'm using unity alongside Visual Studio 2019 to edit existing game templates that I have purchased on the unity asset store. I am using it as an independent developer. The business problem that it addresses is the need for accessible and fun games for all ages.
  • Billing
  • Quality
  • Security
  • Integration of disparate technologies required to build an application.
  • Streamline the versioning process using the hub, it's great so far.
  • Keep improving the ML learning models for AI.
  • Negative ROI.
  • Learning improvement.
  • Business learning.
The ease of use of Corona although superior to unity does not stack up to an overall better experience. Unity asset store needs some work period the Corona asset store is brilliant. In Android Studio getting the simple projects to build is very time consuming and worthwhile. In Visual Studio it is easy to debug an application in unity by attaching to process. I selected unity above Corona because of the possibilities for expanding to the desktop. I could not use Android Studio as quickly as I could use unity and Visual Studio. I could use Corona in under one hour and it would serve all of my needs at the moment. However, it does not have the expandability or extreme boost in sales numbers that could be achieved.
I haven't needed support yet. That's the best part. I will say that the community online has had to fill in the gaps when I published my app to the Google Play store and found out that there was a hiccup with the Alipay code that was integrated into the app without my knowledge. so the package manager part needs some work period.

I am recommending using Unity and Visual Studio 2019 for any developer looking to publish an app or game to Google Play. I am comparing this to Corona and Crey game frameworks.
