Originally available for a select few back in July, Google has released the App Inventor to the general public for everyone with a Google Account and a bit of interest to use.
App Inventor is available at Google Labs and it will allow non-techy people to easily create Android applications for their own use, with a simple and intuitive interface. Giving access to the device’s camera and GPS, some good home-made applications might come out and Google is already excited about initial programs emerging with the aid of the App Inventor. If you are willing to build your own app but you don’t have the inspiration, you might find some ideas in the forums. Check below a short video presentation to witness how easy it is to create an application in just a couple of steps. Anyone into app building?
