Presentation Transcript

  1. SCERSIG: Creating Android Apps with App Inventor 26 October 2011 Ric Paul, Health Services Library, Southampton

  2. Options for Creating Apps • Apple • iOS SDK • Windows • Visual Studio • Android • App Inventor • Developer’s Toolkit

  3. App Inventor: Getting Started • Install software • Internet connection • But… don’t need an Android phone

  4. App Inventor Dunechaser Robban Andersson Any other mobile programming language

  5. www.appinventorbeta.com/about • Google login + internet required

  6. App Inventor • Simple, low-tech approach to programming • Free to use – but software installation required • Tutorials available on the site • Tutorial videos on YouTube

  7. Design your interface on this screen • Open the Blocks Editor to edit code

  8. Interface Design • Drag and drop components onto the screen image • Edit component names and initial status • Choose from a range of components – buttons, text objects, social media tools, etc.

  9. Connect from here to a phone or emulator to test

  10. Blocks Editor • Drag containers for each component onto the surface • Plug actions, events & properties into the container • No formal programming is required

  11. Finalising Apps • Finished app can be installed on a phone directly or via a QR code • Distribute the app via the QR code – or upload to Android Market • A tool like Marketizer can help • www.taiic.com/marketizer • Apps can be updated later – users will be alerted that an update is available

  12. Downsides • App Inventor apps are large files – there’s nothing you can do to reduce them • This is an Android-only product – there’s no equivalent for iOS or Windows Mobile • App Inventor is no longer supported directly by Google
