It seems it was ages ago that Google App Inventor – the RAD tool to allow easier and faster development of Android applications – was announced and opened up to only a handful of those interested. We’ve seen some interesting uses of the application, but no one’s really shown how much you can squeeze out of it before you’ll eventually need to get your feet wet with code. (After all, its original purpose was to be used as a teaching tool for aspiring developers.)

Thankfully, it’s finally out of beta and it’s free to download for anyone willing to grab it. Unfortunately, it sounds like you’re still unable to edit the code produced by the application so if you were looking to add this to your toolkit to help speed up the development of advanced applications, think again. It’s still worth a download, though, so head on over to Google to check it out. [via Google]
