An excerpt from the Google App Inventor book
The Google App Inventor book covers in-depth blocks, components and the concepts behind them. The writing is simple and concise with learning aids like 'What just happened' and 'Pop quiz'. I found the 'Have a go here' sample projects outlined in the book to very educational and fun. Ralph also includes a free six-button template as a bonus. Here is a excerpt from the book itself:
As to prior knowledge and programming experience needed in creating apps and publishing them to places such as the Android market, you need practically none! This is the truly beautiful part of AI: its visual interface allows anyone from elementary school kids to us older people to make apps from the beginning without special knowledge.
