The pieces that do not interact will not connect with each otheranother helpful way for beginners to get a sense of introductory programming principles.

The most significant improvement is that all the work takes place within the browser the previous version required a software download for some of the capabilities.


This improvement most impacts the onscreen emulator, which places a virtual Android device screen on your computer. Using this emulator provides a perspective on how the app will look and function when put to use. This is especially useful for those without an Android device or anyone in an education setting who wants to monitor student progress by viewing app builds on computer screens.

App Inventor also offers a method for using the app in real time while performing work on it: the AI Companion app see Figure P.

App Inventor 2: Create your own Android Apps

With this free download from Google Play, you can see Preface your app change and develop while working on it. The Companion app also works wirelessly, so you dont need to physically connect your phone to a computer while working in App Inventor.

This lets you see both how the app is performing and how it looks while it is still being developed. Why Android? Android is not only the most popular operating systemit also is the most extendable. App Inventor is built to take advantage of the customization and flexibility that Android offers.

App Inventor is also a tool that is designed with those who have little to no programming experience in mind. Other platforms have a fairly high barrier of entry, but with App Inventor, you can more easily learn the essential skills for building an app with the worlds most popular mobile platform.

Chapter 12, Distributing an App, discusses this process and walks through how to accomplish it. What This Book Covers So what exactly does this book discuss?

The following sections provide a preview of the key highlights from the upcoming 12 chapters. This chapter addresses the key parts of a mobile operating system and how computer programmers should think about creating applications.

Chapter 3: App Inventor Toolkit App Inventor has some powerful yet easy-to-use tools for designing and building Android apps. In this chapter, the focus is on the different components available in the Designer.

This serves as a good resource on the different capabilities of the Designer and will be a chapter worth referencing often. Chapter 4: Variables Variables are one of the key pieces of App Inventor; almost any app that you build will use them in some way.

Chapter 4 covers the essentials of variables and provides some strategies for their effective use, particularly in the context of building the sample app for the chapter.

Chapter 5: Procedures With some basic app building under your belt, it is time to take the next step and use procedures.

Procedures make your life easier when it comes to building larger, more complicated apps because they enable you to group pieces of code together and recall it later.

Chapter 6: Working with Lists As with variables, lists are a core piece of most apps that you will build with App Inventor.

Lists store large pieces of data or information. The chapter culminates with a quiz app that provides some good practice in using lists. This chapter teaches the basics of the gaming and animation capabilities of App Inventor. It concludes with a simple game that could be a springboard for you to use App Inventor for other basic or more complex games. Chapter 8: Multiple Screens and Debugging Techniques Apps typically have multiple screens, giving users greater clarity and more streamlined access to the content of an app.

This chapter focuses on strategies for using multiple screens and explores how to build them into applications.

It also covers some debugging techniques for App Inventor. Chapter 9: Using Media Most of the smartphone apps that people use are media rich. Here you get some exposure to and practice in building media capabilities into your own apps, and you learn what is possible in App Inventor. Chapter Sensors Many apps are location aware, letting users find specific information or customize their interaction based on location. This chapter shows you how to build some of these tools into your own apps and illustrates how they can improve a users experience.

Chapter Databases Databases might not sound exciting, but they are a core feature of any good app that relies on storing information. This chapter looks at how to use databases effectively in different scenarios. Chapter Distributing an App Keeping an app that you have built all to yourself is no fun.

It is time to share it with others. This can be as simple as sending the file to friends and family or placing it in the Google Play Store for worldwide distribution. Whichever path you choose, this chapter assists you in getting to your destination.

As with many other skills in computer science, building a mobile application is an exercise in both creativity and logical thinking. You need to solve rational, complex problems while simultaneously building out a creative vision.Find something you'd similar to what you'd like to build and go for it.

Data could arrive from a remote device over Bluetooth such as from an Arduino board connected to sensors. You'll be led through the creation of twelve successively more complex apps that you can build and customize. The official App Inventor tutorial book. The programming takes place in the Blocks Editor.

The paperback version is a great companion to app building-- you can use the book to read the tutorial and save your screen for all of the App Inventor windows.
