MIT App Inventor 2 is the fast and easy way to create custom Android apps for smart phones or tablets. This guide introduces the basic App Inventor features - you can likely create your first simple app in about an hour, and understand the basic components of App Inventor in a full day. App Inventor 2 is free to use and you can use it for commercial applications too. 

App Inventor 2: Introduction is targeted at adult learners (high school and up) and shows how to design your app’s user interface with “drag and drop” interface controls to layout your app’s screen design. Then implement the app’s behavior with unique “drag and drop” programming blocks to quickly assemble the program in a graphical interface. 

This introduction covers the basics of the App Inventor user interface Designer and the Blocks programming editor, plus basic “blocks” programming concepts and tools for arithmetic, text processing, event handling, lists and other features.
