Google’s App Inventor for Android Extending Invitations

App Inventor by GoogleGoogle announced today that it is extending the invitations to the general public for the new App Inventor tool, which can be used by everyone, programmers or non-programmers, to develop mobile applications for mobile devices, or devices powered by the Android OS.

Google stated, that in the past year, they have been experimenting with the App Inventor in classrooms around the United States to find out that it can open up a new world of powerful ways for computer programming for many students.

Professor of Computer Science at the University of San Francisco, David Wolber, said that students traditionally intimidated by technology are motivated and excited to program with the App Inventor.

One student from the class of the same professor said to Google that he used to think that no one could program except CS people, but now, he has made dozens of applications for the Android-powered devices.

Another student was very inspired and motivated by the App Inventor to take more computer science classes and is now learning Python.

App Inventor will be able to give everyone a little programming experience and the opportunity to control and reshape their communication experience.
