App Inventor

Google has announced that its popular (and fun) tool App Inventor is now open to anyone with a Google account.  If you're not quite sure what App Inventor is exactly, don't feel too bad -- in typical Google fashion it's been a limited access tool, trickling out to users a few at a time.  Think of it as a tool to create fun little apps, for people who have no idea how to create fun little apps.  All you need to get started is a PC or Mac, an Android phone, and a Google account.  And you'll want to visit and bookmark our App Inventor forum -- it's bound to get jumping now that anyone with a creative streak has access to the tools.  There's a short demo after the break, and hit the source link to get started.
