App Inventor adds new source code “Gallery”

App Inventor has added a new source code “Gallery” for sharing source code with others.

From the My Projects list of your projects, at the far right, find a new feature to “Publish to Gallery”. To use, create a graphic image to illustrate your app – such as a screenshot. You will later upload this to the Gallery along with a description of what your source code does.

Add a link to a web page (if any) that contains a tutorial or video about your app or source code.


To find other code already added to the Gallery, click on the Gallery menu item near the top/upper right of the AI menu.

Have fun!

(And yes, I am back from recent travels – still recovering – fell a sleep after lunch today! I hope to start adding some of the source code from this blog to the Gallery soon!)

How to take a Screenshot

(This works on my Android devices) To take a snapshot of what is on your Android device screen, press the device power button and the volume control DOWN button simultaneously. This captures a screen snapshot and saves it to your Photo Gallery.  Email that photo to yourself or do what ever you do to transfer files from your device to your computer, for subsequent processing/viewing, editing, re-sizing and what have you.
