A frequent search topic on this blog is how to use lists. “Lists” are a way of storing a collection of data in App Inventor programs. Many other programming languages provide a number of methods for storing collections of data including arrays, records, even lists, and even something called “collections” (imagine that!)
App Inventor provides Lists, plus you can also use components like the TinyDB.
For a detailed description of using Lists, please refer to Chapter 8 – Introduction to Lists in my e-book “App Inventor 2: Tutorial”, available for $2.99 from Amazon. I hope to make this text available in additional e-reader formats during November.
