Google releases App Inventor visual programing tool for Android

Google has just released today a new visual programming tool for Android called App Inventor to enable each and everybody to “develop” Android applications without writing a single line of code.There’s obviously nothing really new here given that Palm has already done this with Ares a few months ago and Nokia too. The downside to these types of tools comes from the fact that you can’t really develop anytype of serious application because of the restricted number of “visual blocks” available to the user. App Inventor can be describe are a really really dumbed down version of Microsoft Expression Blend. Still nice to see Google pushing the Android platform this hard. Check out the video after the break:
