Google has just opened up the Beta of their App-Inventor. It's awesome, it's like lego-mindstorms for an android phone. Except you don't really actually need the phone, if you just want to write an app. Like I did. If you have an android phone, point it at the QR code below, and let me know if it successfully downloads the app, titled something like "JacquesGoesWoof." Because, really, who doesn't need an app to let you click on a picture of my small poodle mix, and hear the sound of a large german shepherd barking?
Also, below is google's explanatory video.
