App Inventor: Will You Create Android Apps?

The inventor of the Google app believes that it is not only devs who can develop an app, which is why he has enabled them to do just that. He said that these non-coders could create working Android apps by “connecting a series of “blocks.” This went live on Monday.

Pete Cashmore from Mashable reports that only those who apply via a form will have the chance to create their own Android app that’s, which he learned from NYTimes. This could be a turning point for Android, we know that the service is open source — so we could begin to see a number of specialized apps.

Android Market is still a long way behind Apple’s App Store, but this latest development could help the former reduce the margin. What else will help is how Android Market has no approval process — something that has stopped a number of useful applications making their way to the iPhone.

Cashmore does fear that the influx of apps from non-coders could come at a cost — quality. If this does work, then we are certain that Apple will be keeping a close eye developments. We recently reported that Android has the highest percentage of free apps.

He started out working in a factory and dreamed of the day when he could become his own boss; That happened back in 2002 and he has never looked back since. Things have changed so much on the Internet in that time, but he has adapted well.
