App Inventor is a free software for making Android apps. All you need is a PC with an Internet connection to build your app, and a mobile phone for testing. You'll use a simple drag-and-drop interface, which minimizes errors and avoids too much typing.

Once you've tested the app on your phone, you can test what you learned with challenges at the end of each chapter.

* Hi, World Use your voice to send a text message
* Practice Makes Perfect Rehearse a speech or dance routine with this video recording app
* Fruit Loot Catch randomly failing fruit in this exciting game
* Beat the Bus Track a friend's journey using location services and maps
* Virtual Shades Take a selfie, then try on some virtual sunglasses
