Roll Your Own Android Apps

Google is taking the wraps off of a new android development tool aimed at the masses and setting Google App Inventor for Android free. The tool has been under development for a year and tested by users with little or no formal technical knowledge, "User testing has been done mainly in schools with groups that included sixth graders, high school girls, nursing students and university undergraduates who are not computer science majors." 

"App Inventor requires NO programming knowledge. This is because instead of writing code, you visually design the way the app looks and use blocks to specify the app's behavior." says the company's About page.

I think I know what I'll be doing this evening!
