App Inventor Classic will shut down on July 15, 2015.
May 24, 2015 -- MIT App Inventor Classic will shut down on July 15, 2015. After July 15, 2015, you will not be able to access or edit your existing AI Classic projects. It will be impossible to create new AI Classic projects.This shutdown applies only to AI Classic (AI1). App Inventor 2 (AI2) will not be affected. MIT will not automatically convert your AI1 projects to AI2 projects. But MIT will provide a conversion tool that will help you convert the AI projects that are important to you into AI2 projects. We expect to release this converter in about 2 weeks (i.e., around June 8). The process of converting an AI1 project to an AI2 project has several steps. For each AI1 project you wish to convert to AI2, you will need to do the following (you can do the first two steps now):
- Open your AI1 project in the most recent version of App Inventor Classic.
- Download the AI1 project as an AI1 source file (.zip) to your computer.
- Use the AI1 to AI2 conversion tool to convert the AI1 source file (.zip) to an AI2 source file (.aia). This tool is not yet available, but there will be an announcement in the App Inventor Forum when it becomes available.
- Upload the converted AI2 source file (.aia) from your computer into App Inventor 2 as an AI2 project.
