Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Building a HelloWorld app, part of Learning Simple Android Development Tools.
…Remember all the difficulty we did when we did it the hard way?…Let's do it the simplest way possible here with MIT App Inventor 2.…You log into App Inventor using your Google account.…It's required to have a Google account in order to…use App Inventor, and in the next movie, I'll go through…the entire process of setting up App Inventor, installing all the…pieces and signing up through your Google account and giving permissions.…But for right now, I've got it all set up.…So let's go ahead and do it.…I'm going to drag a button onto the screen, I'm going…to come down here in the properties like I did before.…
I'm going to change the button to say Tap Me.…And I'm going to go ahead and drag a label onto the screen.…And I'm going to set the text for that label…to the empty string so that it doesn't show.…That's all that's necessary to set up the design.…Now, to go ahead and make the code, you'll see…that all we have to do is click on the button…and you'll see a whole bunch of things here, blocks that…allow you to decide what to do when different events happen.…
