MIT App Inventor is a powerful tool that beginning coders or anyone dabbling with mobile technology can use to build Android apps. In this chapter, we looked at the kind of apps that are possible with this cloud-based tool.
Computer science is applied reasoning using both art and science. It requires the ability to communicate ideas through a combination of language and powerful technology. Hopefully this first app has demonstrated that App Inventor is an excellent starting point for anyone looking to create with computer technology, whether professionally or recreationally.
In the next chapter, we build an app that includes both an image and sound, and we look at how to see the app on your own device.
