Google App Inventor lets anyone make Android apps
Google has revealed a new software tool that lets just about anyone make apps for mobile phones that use its Android software.
The beta version of the Web site for App Inventor for Android went live from Google Labs.

Anyone interested in using App Inventor to start making Android apps will need a few things, including a Gmail account, a computer and an Android-based handset, according to the App Inventor site. Google announced App Inventor nearly a year ago, saying that faculty from dozens of colleges and universities were involved.
