Android App Inventor lets 'you' make your own apps!

12 Jul

Google has released a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) app maker tool for Android that would enable just about anyone (they really mean ANYONE) to create apps for Android. App Inventor allows users to visually add elements that they want in their app and the software takes care of the rest for them. So even if you have no programming skills, you can still create your own app. (Check out the video at the end of this post)

While it certainly sounds interesting, we wonder what will happen to the already cr-app crowded Android Market when just about everyone and their grannies start creating apps. Yup, Google might be able to overtake Apple in numbers of apps but it surely will be one ugly application store. Probably, rather than letting just about anyone to upload their apps to Android Market, it would be wise for Google to hold a competition and allow the top 10 (or even 100) apps to its application store.

Certainly, that ain’t going to happen considering how Google is championing the open source cause (don’t get me wrong, I’m all for it). But Google certainly needs to start policing Android Market or it won’t be long before the number of available apps lose their relevance once the place start stinking of cr-apps and consumers start looking elsewhere.
