This set of cards can be used in a workshop or a "Maker Faire" type of event. They give quick tidbits of code for building mini-apps with App Inventor. Use them in exhibits, parent nights, STEM fairs, after-school clubs, or anywhere that you need to get people jump-started using App Inventor.
This hub for people in China to learn about and use App Inventor was started by a group of Chinese App Inventor fans in 2010. The founders strongly believe App Inventor has unlimited possibilities and bright future. The site offers videos, tutorials, a technical discussion forum, and much more.
MIT Students Tony Chen, Mitchell Kates, and Marcus Lowe created these slides for an App Inventor hackathon at a local community center. These slides include great images, descriptions, and helpful gifs.
App Inventor Concept Cards provide a quick way to learn new App Inventor code and concepts. Each of the 13 cards can be printed out, folded in half, and used to prompt students to explore a concept in App Inventor such as timers, sounds, movement, math, multiple screens, making colors, etc. These cards are designed to introduce ideas to students in bite-sized snippets and can be worked into any lesson or tutorial.
Pong is a simple game controlled by the user and a ball. The ball bounces off the paddle and three walls. If the ball bounces on the paddle, the user gains points. As soon as the ball falls beyond the paddle, the game is over. Pearl Phaovisaid created a visual tutorial to go along with the Pong tutorial on the site. This tutorial can be downloaded, printed out and then used as a guide to help the user create the Pong app without having to switch between screens.
This page lists useful code snippets and examples for App Inventor, such as how to insert a row into a Google Spreadsheet, how to share data between two apps, how to download data from a web page, and other advanced features.
