App Inventor

App Inventor is a free visual programming environment used to create mobile applications for Android. Your programs are stored in the cloud (hosted by MIT).

To get started with App Inventor click here and remember that your programs are managed from your login userid.

If you have access to an Android device (phone or tablet) the programs can be created using a web browser and loaded onto your device using WiFi or building an install image (.apk file).

If you plan to use the Android emulator to test your programs you will need to install a small program onto your development computer (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux).

The emulator software is available here.
