Google Unveils App Inventor for Students and Educators
Well, well, well. This is mighty interesting. Google has just unveiled a web-based app creation tool for Android, and it seems to be aimed squarely at students and educators. Just imagine: professors making apps for their classes, or club presidents making apps for their members…pretty exciting stuff. The coolest part is that it doesn’t require you to know any code at all. That doesn’t mean it will be idiot-proof, but this could go a long way towards closing the app-gap between Android and iOS.
It’s still a closed beta right now, but we’ve requested an invite and we’ll write up a full review as soon as we can get our hands on it. In the meantime, sign up for your own invite and let us know how you like it.
