App Inventor is a Do-It-Yourself App Builder that lets anyone build apps. You can even create apps that access web data– Amazon book information, RSS feeds, stock information, weather information, you name it.
App Inventor Mash is the place to:
- download and customize App Inventor apps
- download and customize App-Inventor-compliant API code
- Learn how to create your own App-Inventor-Compliant APIs
How it Works
App Inventor provides a component, TinyWebDB, which is the gateway from app to web. You can set its ServiceURL property to any App-Inventor-compliant API and easily bring in data to your app.
There are only a few such APIs in existence, as App Inventor is a new tool. But its easy to create new AI-Compliant-APIs, and this site shows you how.
