Now The Technically Challenged Can Build Apps

Want to build Apps but not sure how to do it?

Here is an opportunity for the “technically challenged”, that is those of us who are not developers, to build apps with ease.

Google has just announced the release of App Inventor for Android.  The burning question though is whether this Google Labs Project will remain in the lab or realise its potential  and revolutionise the web?

As it has access to a GPS-location sensor, you can build apps that know where you are. It’s drag & drop making the app creation process very simple. These are a couple of the pluses, as is the ability to use this tool for educational purposes.

The downside is that the market for Android Apps is now likely to be swamped by inane apps which will make it difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff.

To begin one needs to sign an online form to register interest.
