Beginner App Inventor

Updated a year ago

  1. These cards are going to introduce you to App Inventor. You're going to get the chance to:
    • learn to build apps for Android phones and tablets
    • build a quiz that keeps score as the player goes through it
    • use any questions and answers you like, maybe about your favourite band, a sport you play, movies or a tv show you love. I'm going to do mine on dogs (I like dogs).
    • You'll end up with something that looks like this (though you can play around with colours and adding images to brighten it up if you like!).
  2. If you want to follow along with me, you're welcome to, if not then wherever I have a dog themed question, you'll have to come up with your own question, the right answer, and some answers that sound right! If you're going to make your own quiz, have a think about that now and maybe brainstorm out some ideas with the other Ninjas in your Dojo about what kind of questions you should have.
  3. Once you've learned these techniques, you can apply them to create more than just a quiz! These same coding tools can be used to make a complete interactive story, or to build a calculator, or a whole bunch of other cool apps.
