Welcome to App Inventor

Today we are going to use App Inventor to create Android apps. App Inventor is created by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) who are the same people who created Scratch.

App Inventor is browser based and the projects are stored entirely in a cloud at MIT.

Currently the supported browsers are:

  • Mozilla Firefox 3.6 or higher
  • Note: If you are using Firefox with the NoScript extension, you’ll need to turn the extension off. See the note on the troubleshooting page.
  • Apple Safari 5.0 or higher
  • Google Chrome 4.0 or higher
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer is not supported.

 

App Inventor works on the following Operating Systems

  • Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7
  • Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
  • GNU/Linux: Ubuntu 8 or higher, Debian 5 or higher

 

The following slides cover the steps to install Firefox and the App Inventor software.
