Aastha (age 10) from India has accomplished the impossible: an alarm clock that actually sparks joy. Her app asks you to start the day with such questions as "What are you looking forward to?" and "What are you grateful for?" Only once you complete this short, uplifting quiz can you quit the app!
Thirteen-year-old May, from the US, saw a problem with her class's homework tracking system: Kids had to scroll through a long spreadsheet just to see their own assignments. It was a pain, and probably an invasion of privacy for everyone in the class. So this coder built an app that pulls only your own assignments into a personalized app screen. With a beautifully designed home page and some tricky Google spreadsheet queries in her code, May's solution has style!
Szy has done it again! The mechanical engineer from Taiwan has completed the part three of his epic strategy game, set in a medieval land named Niss. Can you allocate your knights and other resources correctly to win? Check out this intricate and rewarding app in the App Inventor gallery (linked above) or search for it in the Google Play store.
Muhammad (age 12) from Indonesia created this enjoyable arcade-style game in which players race on streets filled with passenger cars, police cars, ambulances, and (inexplicably) singer Rick Astley! He accomplished some challenging coding to create this exciting app. Great work, Muhammad!
Tess (age 14) from the US carefully coded this environmentally conscious game for her Girl Scout project. At the start of the game, different types of trash appear and the player swipes them to the bin where they belong -- trash, compost, or recycling. We even learned something while playing this game (who knew shredded paper should be in compost and not recycling?) Keep making great apps, Tess!
Professor Yamamoto from Japan has created this app that uses quantum annealing, a type of quantum computing, to reduce noise in images. The app, which runs on most mobile devices, lets you experience the processing of a quantum annealing machine that is different from existing computers. Dr. Yamamoto would like to thank Dr. Masanao Yamaoka of Hitachi, Ltd., who developed the CMOS annealing machine, for answering various technical questions.
Geng Qi and Theodore (ages 10) from Singapore created this fun app to show people some of Singapore's exciting attractions in the form of a game. Keep up the great work gentlemen!
Gordon (age 12) from Hong Kong, inspired by SteveJG from our power user community, created this fun app to cheer up his classmates. You enter a birthday and the app finds all the famous people in Wikipedia with that same birthday. We think you will also find this app very intriguing.

USC student Alex from the USA says that even though MIT App Inventor is an educational tool marketed towards teaching new developers, his app shows that it is possible to build very elaborate mobile games using the platform. Way to go Alex!
László György from Hungary is retired teacher of physics and chemistry and he created this interesting app to help people who are learning or teaching chemistry. We hope you will find it as intriguing as we did.
