Getting Started with MIT App Inventor

App Inventor is a cloud-based tool, which means you can create apps for phones or tablets right in your web browser. This website offers all the support you'll need to build apps:


  1. Setup Instructions for Testing: Set up your Android phone, iPhone, or tablet for live testing. (Or, start the emulator if you don’t have a mobile device).
  2. Designer and Blocks Editor Overview: Tour the App Inventor environment.
  3. Beginner Tutorials: Jump in and get started programming in App Inventor.
  4. Packaging and Sharing Apps: Package your app (Android only, for now!) and share it with friends.
