Google Android App Inventor Builds Apps in Seconds!


Google has launched their new Google Android App Inventor that allows non-programmers and alike to build apps without having knowledge of Java.

This is certainly a game changer for Android as now many more regular folks can join in the revolution of app invention, not just companies who have millions of dollars to invest on engineers.

It does look pretty revolutionary to me at first sight, as a Java engineer myself, I can appreciate what has been put into this new App Inventor.

For the past year, we’ve been testing App Inventor in classrooms around the United States, and we’ve found that it opens up the world of computer programming to students in new and powerful ways. David Wolber, professor of computer science at the University of San Francisco and part of the initial pilot program, says “students traditionally intimidated by technology are motivated and excited to program with App Inventor.” One student from Professor Wolber’s class told us: “I used to think that no one could program except CS people. Now, I’ve made dozens of applications for the Android phone!” Another student, who struggles with dyslexia, was inspired by App Inventor to take more computer science classes and is now learning Python.
