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.

Release Date: 2018-01-23

With the development environment App Inventor 2 you can easily develop and test your own apps. The book is intended to help you get started with setting up the development environment right through to your own apps. It is written for beginners who want to deal with app development, but can also be used for teaching purposes in schools or community colleges. It is a step-by-step guide that does not focus on the full description of the programming language, but uses examples to illustrate the capabilities of the development environment. It starts with setting up the environment and the Android device. It continues with simple apps, via variable concepts and control structures to more complex topics. Event-driven apps are developed, subroutines are handled and sensors are queried. Working with multiple screens is just as important as files and dialogs. The examples are chosen so that the topics with increasing difficulty are treated as systematically as possible. The examples are not too complex to be easily understood. They should serve as inspiration for own projects. A technically strict systematology and a complete description of the programming language is not intended to not overwhelm beginners.

Genre: Computers

Mit der Entwicklungsumgebung App Inventor 2 kann man sehr einfach eigene Apps entwickeln und testen. Das Buch soll helfen, die ersten Schritte von der Einrichtung der Entwicklungsumgebung bis hin zu eigenen Apps zu bewältigen. Es ist an Anfänger gerichtet, die sich mit der App-Entwicklung beschäftigen wollen, läßt sich aber auch sehr gut zu Unterrichtszwecken in Schulen oder Volkshochschulen einsetzen. Es handelt sich um eine Schritt-für-Schritt Anleitung, die den Fokus nicht auf die vollständige Beschreibung der Programmiersprache legt, sondern an Beispielen die Möglichkeiten der Entwicklungsumgebung aufzeigt. Angefangen wird mit der Einrichtung der Umgebung und des Android-Geräts. Weiter geht es mit einfachen Apps, über Variablenkonzepte und Kontrollstrukturen zu komplexeren Themen. Es werden Ereignis gesteuerte Apps entwickelt, Unterprogramme behandelt und Sensoren abgefragt. Die Arbeit mit mehreren Bildschirmen spielt ebenso eine Rolle, wie Dateien und Dialoge. Die Beispiele sind so gewählt, dass die Themen mit ansteigendem Schwierigkeitsgrad möglichst systematisch behandelt werden. Die Beispiele sind nicht zu komplex, damit sie noch leicht verständlich bleiben. Sie sollen als Anregung für eigene Projekte dienen. Auf eine fachlich strenge Systematik und eine vollständige Beschreibung der Programmiersprache wird bewusst verzichtet, um Anfängerinnen und Anfänger nicht zu überfordern.
