With MITs App Inventor 2, anyone can build complete, working Android appswithout writing code! This complete tutorial will help you do just that, even if you have absolutely no programming experience. Unlike books focused on the obsolete Google version, Learning MIT App Inventor is written from the ground up for MITs dramatically updated Version 2. The authors guide you step-by-step through every task and feature, showing you how to create apps by dragging, dropping, and connecting puzzle piecesnot writing code. As you learn, youll also master expert design and development techniques you can build on if you ever do want to write code. Through hands-on projects, youll master features ranging from GPS to animation, build high-quality user interfaces, make everything work, and test it all with App Inventors emulator. (You wont even need an Android device!) All examples for this book are available at http://theapplanet.com/appinventor
