Develop Your First Android App Without Programming with MIT App Inventor

Robin Good: MIT App Inventor is a visual web app that allows you to code and test Android apps without needing to write a line of code.


"MIT App Inventor, originally conceived and built out of Google Labs, democratizes app creation for Android smartphones. In this video, you'll see just how easy it is to create a simple app with MIT App Inventor."


From the official site: "Creating an App Inventor app begins in your browser, where you design how the app will look.


Then, like fitting together puzzle pieces, you set your app's behavior. All the while, through a live connection between your computer and your phone, your app appears on your phone.


You can build many different types of apps with App Inventor. You can build apps that inform and educate. You can create a quiz app to help you and your classmates study for a test. With Android's text-to-speech capabilities, you can even have the phone ask the questions aloud.


To use App Inventor, you do not need to be a professional developer. This is because instead of writing code, you visually design the way the app looks and use blocks to specify the app's behavior."


Free.

The Age of Multi-Screen Information Consumption: A Visual Analysis and Report from Google

The Age of Multi-Screen Information Consumption: A Visual Analysis and Report from Google | Mobile Publishing Tools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested i understanding how most people utilize and move between the use of their smartphone or tablet, to their desktops or TV screens and viceversa, this elegantly illustrated feature by Google, will definitely provide you with some new insight and some relevant data.


"Today 90% of our media consumption occurs in front of a screen. As consumers balance their time between smartphones, tablets, PCs and Televisions, they are learning to use these devices together to achieve their goals."


"...some insights from our latest research:


-> 90% of consumers begin a task on one device and then complete it on another device.


-> Smartphones are by far the most common starting point for this sequential activity.


-> TV no longer commands our full attention.


-> TV strategy should be closely aligned and integrated with the marketing strategies for digital devices.


In essence: "While consumers are using more than one device simultaneously, content viewed on one device can trigger specific behavior on the other.

Businesses should therefore not limit their conversion goals and calls to action to only the device where they were initially displayed.
"



Recommended. Both for the info as well as for its presentation and design approach. 9/10

Robin Good: While many are rushing to build their first native app, many publishers are starting to choose web-native HTML5-based solutions which work across all devices.


From the article intro: "A couple weeks ago, MIT Technology Review's editor in chief and publisher Jason Pontin wrote a piece about killing their app and optimizing their website for all devices with HTML5.


That same week, Lonely Planet's Jani Patokallio predicted that HTML5 would nudge out the various ebook formats."

Translate and Localize Your iOS & Mac Apps Into Other Languages with Traducto

Robin Good: If you are looking for a tool that can help you translate and localize your iOS and Mac apps, you may want to look into Traducto.


From Techcrunch: "...Developers that have neither the time nor the expertise to fully translate an app into another language could be missing out on plenty of international revenue, and a new OS X app called Traducto Pro aims to make sure that’s no longer the case.


Created by Brooklyn-based Visual Frames, Traducto Pro simplifies the localization process for developers looking to bring their iOS and Mac apps to new markets by providing a one-stop shop for requesting and purchasing translations for their projects.


...


Once the app is installed, users can create an account with Traducto and either punch in text to be translated or directly import Xcode files. Translating pure text — think app store descriptions, press releases, blog posts and the like — is straightforward enough, as users can just copy and paste into the corresponding field and select one of 16 target languages for the text to be translated into.


...


For developers who would rather shell out a bit of cash instead of handle the process of sourcing translators themselves (or worse: grabbing a dictionary and having a go at it), Traducto Pro seems like a thoughtful, well-executed tool to have in their arsenal. The app is now available to developers here for $49 (and that price gets cut in half with the coupon code “PRO50“)."

An alternative to Traducto would be http://poeditor.com/. It is web-based, so there is no need for installation. It is very practical vor localizing iOS ans OS X apps, as it allows collaborative works from translators in over 200 languages.

What you'll need:

  • The MOD 1000 or other macro-focused camera
  • Facilitator Computer
  • Screen Recorder : GoTo Meeting, Camtasia or CamStudio
  • Computer to administer tasks to the user
