App Inventor

From Wikipedia:

App Inventor for Android is an application originally provided by Google, and now maintained by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

It allows anyone, (including people unfamiliar with computer programming), to create software applications for the Android operating system (OS). It uses a graphical interface, very similar to Scratch and the StarLogo TNG user interface, that allows users to drag-and-drop visual objects to create an application that can run on the Android system, which runs on many mobile devices.

The application was made available through request on July 12, 2010, and released publicly on December 15, 2010. Google terminated App Inventor on December 31, 2011. The MIT Center for Mobile Learning is now supporting it under the name "MIT App Inventor".
