Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge one: Send a text using button blocks, part of Learning Simple Android Development Tools.
…It's time for you to roll up your sleeves and build a few blocks.…Challenge number one in the MIT app inventor two section of…this course is to extend ColorSpotR to send a text message.…We're going to do that by adding logic blocks into each button block.…One for button one, one for button two and so forth, to send a text message.…What we'll do is fire up a second emulator in…order to send a text message from one emulator to another.…If you have an Android device and another phone…or another tablet, you can do it that way.…
But you can only use it if you're using the emulator for both pieces.…And when you fire up the second emulator, which I'll show you how to…do in just a moment, the second emulator's phone number essentially will be 5556.…So, when you set the text messaging phone number you'll set…it to 5556 and your first emulator whose number is 5554.…You might have seen that in the title bar.…Will be sending from one emulator to the next.…As I just mentioned, remember, the first emulator's address is 5554.…
