Make your Own Apps with App Inventor

Making apps is a concept that is beyond of many user’s reach due to the secret and very intricate world of programming. Not everyone knows how to code, debug, or compile in order to make a working program. And the vast number of languages available doesn’t make this any easier. Having said this, it seems that Google has jumped to the rescue of potential developers. XDA member acegolfer created a discussion thread over in the Vogue forums about a new service that Google is providing for their Android users (source: Engadget). It is called App Inventor and it allows people with 0 programming skills to develop apps for their favorite devices.

This may be the beginning of a whole new era of development for Android devices since there are many people lurking in our forums, requesting for stuff to be made due to their lack of knowledge about coding. The interface seems very user friendly and easy to use. Also, it seems that there may be some requirements for you to use this (such as owning an Android phone). If you feel adventurous enough and have ideas that you would love to make them a reality, then you should definitely check this out.

You can join the discussion in the discussion thread. Also, you can go directly to the App Inventor site and get started.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
