Android Apps with App Inventor
This book is a compendium, a practical course book, and a comprehensive tutorial in one, offering a collection of example projects for smaller and larger applications (apps) for Android devices. As a compendium, it addresses, introduces, and demonstrates more or less comprehensively every single area and almost every component of the App Inventor development tool as it was available at the time when the book was written. Consequently,this book can be used as a reference work even by experienced developers who are looking for specific instructions and information about a certain functional area.Presenting examples from a wide variety of topics,it also serves as a practical course book on the general development of apps for mobile devices with their specific multimedia,communication,and sensory properties as well as system elements that often remain uncharted territory even for the experienced PC programmer. Along with the basic aspects of application development,program structures,and functional elements,the example projects demonstrate approaches and solution strategies for the typical problems that can arise in the context of mobile applications.
