Android App Inventor makes it possible for people who are not computer programmers to build Android mobile applications. The App Inventor interface is designed to function like a puzzle where the designer clicks and drags blocks of information and connects them to other blocks. Plus the app can be tested in real-time using a USB-connected Android device before packaging it for the masses! Watch as Chad builds an Android application live and discusses some of the issues involved in creating a mobile application when using App Inventor. Chad will also start a conversation on the future possibilities of app development in order to determine its place in the growing mobile environment.
