Video Description

AppInventor enables the democratization of information technology. You no longer have to be a programmer with years of experience to create your own Android app. All you need is a good idea, a browser, and some simple software for your own Android device or computer to create an app.

In this course, we’ll walk through creating an app step-by-step. We discuss the user interface components: sequence, selection, and iteration, parsing simple text, performing computations, and more.

Style and Approach

In this video, you’ll learn to use AppInventor by creating a sample app, following step-by-step instructions.
