App Inventor lets you create Android apps without any knowledge in programming. How cool is that! You design your apps on a web page, assemble pieces of logic blocks together on the same page, test your app on an emulator or on your phone while you are designing; cool, huh? Your projects are hosted by Google. All you have to do is design and join the pieces together like a puzzle game. Check the official Setup section to get started. If you are looking for Tips/Tutorials, go to the Tutorials page.
