Making Mobile Apps with App Inventor
We have four beginner tutorials to try out. We recommend starting with
Hello Codi!, but any of the four tutorials are accessible for novice coders. They can all be completed within an hour.
For each tutorial, we have multiple ways of accessing them:
- Click the
link to open up a project directly in the App Inventor environment with the tutorial in the sidebar. This is our recommended way to complete the tutorials. Note that each of these can also be used for Hour of Code events.
- If you prefer, you can click on the
links to follow the tutorial in a video. Please note, this requires you have two windows open in the browser – one to play the video and one to run App Inventor.
- We also have links to
files for each tutorial for those who prefer text instructions.
After building the starter apps, which will take around an hour, you can move on to extending them with more functionality, or you can start building apps of your own design.
Get started by making Codi the Bee buzz when touched!

Talk to Me (2 parts)
Text to Speech is surprisingly fun. Find out for yourself with this starter app that talks.
Perona pipi to Me (Part 2)
Fling, Flang, Flung? Whatever you call it, bouncing the ball around the screen is pure fun.
Who needs paper? Doodle all day on your phone’s screen.
You just made some pretty cool apps! But now the real fun begins: try turning TalkToMe into a Magic 8 Ball; turn BallBounce into a Mini Golf game, take DigitalDoodle to the next level by adding colors and incorporating pictures as backgrounds in PaintPot. The possibilities are endless!
