Lessons from London – and a few UK Start-ups that aren't Rubbish


TechCrunch has previously covered Google’s App Inventor — which is basically a WYSIWYG editor for creating Android apps — but, up until this point, the program has been in closed beta.

Well, my fellow Android fiends, today that changes, with Google announcing that the code-free app-creation tool is now open to anyone with a desire to create apps (and a Google Account).

Obviously, the apps created by the service won’t be as powerful as apps coded lovingly by hand, but, with access to hardware like the camera and GPS, you can still do some pretty amazing things with it.

If you’re as keen to get going as I am, you can access the App Inventor here.

You can also see what other people have created in the App Inventor User Forums, here.

For those that don’t know what I’m talking about, I’ve embedded an overview video, below:
