Google has made a move to democratize app development, introducing new software anyone can use to build something they might want to call an App, App Inventor For Android.
This is a new Google Labs program for Windows, OS X, and Linux that lets users build their own apps really easily, as detailed in the video above. Available only as a closed beta at present.
To use App Inventor, you do not need to be a developer. App Inventor requires NO programming knowledge. This is because instead of writing code, you visually design the way the app looks and use blocks to specify the app’s behavior.
