App Inventor lives! MIT's servers on the other hand...
Google’s long-suffering App Inventor – the program that was going to revolutionize app programing with a totally visual coding environment before Google decided to EOL it along with the rest of their 2011 spring cleaning – was slated to be released in an open source capacity by MIT in April. They managed to get it up ahead of schedule today, but were initially caught off guard by the digital stampede of coders-to-be onto their servers.

A quick check shows that the service seems to be back up at the moment, although it’s possible that the web app’s stability may fluctuate throughout the day depending on server load. Regardless, it’s a great way to get your feet wet in the world of coding, so if you’ve always wanted to try to make that brilliant app idea that’s been floating around in the back of your head, then give the source link a click and see what app you can invent!
