MIT App Inventor

MIT App Inventor provides a beginner's introduction to programming and app creation that replaces text-based coding with visual, drag-and-drop building blocks. The simple graphical interface allows an inexperienced beginner the ability to create a basic, fully functional app. An emphasis is placed on OOP principles. The tool is web-based and runs on both Windows and Mac computers. An emulator allows product to be viewed on the desktop on Mac or Win. Apps can be run on an Android mobile device.
