    Software
    MIT AI2 Companion application

    This application let you test all the apps you develop at App Inventor. You can download it from Google Play.
    If you don't have an Android mobile, you can test your app at the emulator.

    App Inventor

    App Inventor is a programming environment where you can develop apps. It's based on two steps: the app design and the block editor, where you can program. Learn more about App Inventor at our creative technologies section.
