Google announced a new product called App Inventor which will make it easy for anyone to make Android applications. It’s a Google Labs product and isn’t ready just yet for the public. You can sign up now and they will notify you when it’s available.
I’m thinking this could be a really good thing for the Android market. It makes it so anyone can make a simple or complex app. While some might see a problem with this as you aren’t really learning how to program, I see it as a open front door into app development. If you start a app in App Inventor it’s possible that you will want to add more advance feature that requires you to start playing with programming. Then it could turn into that person being a full on programmer. At least I see it that way.
