Reviews From google play store

Awesome learning tool along with the textbook and their website app. Just one issue that I encountered just now, is that I need to give the app permission to access SMS, but such an option does not even exist! So idk what to do with chapter 11 project :/

Please fix always shows you cannot connect two times. Works only sometimes and when it works it always freezes progress bar. I used this in school and I have so many school projects. Please fix I already wasted so much time.

Grand app on mobile!! This app works with the website to show you what it would look like on a device.

Amazing app ! If you want to connect fast and easy this is your chance.

It dont connect so easily.. and if it get connected.. after a minute or five server timed out... The main and the biggest problem is its has Trojan Virus in it..šŸ˜‘šŸ˜‘šŸ˜‘

Several attempts to connect has failed. The yellow button is not active.

Works well, won't connect sometimes but does its only job when it does connect.

Why trojan virus still appear? Pls fix it. Thanks

Application closes after scanning the qr code and nothing happens after that. I have Android pie version. How can I resolve this problem?

Awful. Crashes easily. Doesn't work.

Inspiring, life changing. Accelerated my programming progress after a long struggle to master conventional Java. Am now having a rewarding time bringing my ideas into being - something I had almost given up hope of ever accomplishing. Hugely grateful to all involved in developing and supporting this marvellous project.

I have never come across a most useless app like this one. After downloading I can't do anything again, even the control button isn't working. How do you expect a user to get the code?

Please make connecting to the wesite consistent it's like a %60 chance it doesn't connect

not working on intel phone, tried connect but no respond

Sorry to say your app is bad. I downloaded this app about 2 days ago. Unfortunately this app contains Trojan virus. If you could solve this issue, I will change my mind.

A great way to mock up an app without prior experience with Android Studio, putting app development in the hands of the consumer. It has some bugs but it's usability outweighs that.

I scan QR code and it just puts the text on the textbox. I type the code and press ENTER but my program does not run. I click on the run with code button and it is still not working. Need help.

Doesn't connect using the 6 digit code

I like it. I have realised, with it, many intettesting applications for may cell phone.

For some reason, it doesn't work after scanning the qr code. At first I thought it was my device, but then I installed it on a secondary phone that I have (which is the one that i'm writing this review on), and it also doesnt work. Furthermore, i tried downloading the pc emulator, but the browser gave a massage saying that the site was currently busy.

I have sent an Email to the developers of this app expressing these concerns as well. I have a ZTE MAX XL, and I am unable to utilize this application, since the advertisement of it being compatible with all Android devices was an incorrect statement. I have tried every method, and nothing works. If we send them enough Emails and they make a change in their app to fix that, I would give it a 5 star eating, but since I can only use it on one friend's device or a school-issue Android tablet, I cannot give it any higher of a rating than I have, and I feel that even the two-star rating that I gave it is very generous given my circumstances. Again, if we can send them enough Emails about this, maybe they will fix some compatibility issues. P.S., I doubt that I have the only model of Android device that is not covered by the application's compatibility.

Cool tool. Built my first custom app in less than 24 hrs from the time I found this tool to publishing my apk. I have never built an app before and between the puzzle pieces and hundreds of tutorials at the site and on youtube I had version 1 (the input data and calculation and output data) running in <24 hrs. Adding more advanced features like email and file attachment took a little longer. I've heard there's an iOS version too. can't wait to try that too and get my iOS users up and running!

It wouldnt connect properly.

I used this app for a while and it was good so far. Today, I cannot connect this device through this app to MIT app inventor. I updated this app, but the site is just kept saying the app is out of date. I am truly pissed off. Please fix it as soon as possible.

Great app and best of all its free

It was working fine when i first used it, but there was this Error 1103 thing that is annoying me. I tried using something in the app called, " Use Legacy Connection " but it fid not work. Please fix this.

it's a little finiky if you're phone's screen shuts off, but by changing the screen settings, while working on a project, I've had zero problems. it's also just fun to be able to build apps while using your phone, great tool.

This software is good especially for those who are not from programming background. However, this MIT AI2 Companion app doesn't work well in my s9+. But if I tried the same app I designed on my older Android phone, it works perfectly.

Its a very simple and easy app for children to make their own apps. Anyone can easily learn to make apps through this app

The app certainly works, but its menus aren't well designed and it crashes too often

This Does Not Only Scan The QR Code And Open Your Testing Application There Is Another Way, You Can Also Open Your Testing Application By Writing In The Text Box The 6 Digit Code And Before Writing The 6 Digit Code You Can Use Legacy Connection That Will Open Your Testing Application Faster I Figured That Out Because I Have Something Wrong In My Tablet That It Does'nt Scan The QR Code So I Tryed Doing That. This Is Clearly An MIT App Inventor

It's a great app to use...but so many times it just doesn't even work. It just says on the screen "downloading *text*" and stays that way.

this app is usless and very annoying! what use if after scanning the qr code nothing happen, how can I know whether my projects are working? even the emulator itself on computer cannot test my projects. Please fix the problem asap

Works alright for the most part, but when editing an app, the companion crashes constantly. With this and the lag, the experience is shaky at best.

Basically, you can't even test your app. The QR scanner and the six digit code does not even work. Do not get this app!

the app doesn't have directions and i had to figure it out myself and even after that it wouldn't allow me to use the app so i still have no idea how my app works. i don't recommend downloading this app unless you are willing to sit there and figure it out own.

It was fine before, but it all ruined after the update. Please fix this problem and explain the fix in description.

i actually found the website useful as with no basic knowledge of making an app, i could make one but when i am trouble shooting and trying to connect it, the app just does not bring me to the app that i created and stays in the homepage.

The app doesn't work on my phone, evrytime it switched to a new screen it softlocks, crashes, and lose connection.

This app only works when ever it feels like it. It is so unfortunate because i am working on an app for my class and it is taking me longer than it shoyld because this app is not good.

Works great with teaching students how to create their first mobile app

great application good environment to develop android applications really great and always running without any issues I'm recommending for all to use this application 100% worth it

It used to work fine but when it got updated it made it not work anymore and now I can't test anything

cannot connect on my android tablet, after much troubleshooting

After installing, my phone started to load different ads. Even after uninstalling

It does not work on my phone, when I connect it with the MIT app inventor it crashes.

it doesnt connect with the web app. why? i went to see why but it does not show any cause.

WhybI couldnt try my project even after the QR code has been scanned.

I always have problems each time I connect it using wi-fi and usb after some time like one minute please help me solve it.

Wow most of the users are complaining about the qr code glitch but u update with new features and not the glitch, please fix I need to see them projects

Lets Be Real! App Aint Bad. Its Just Too Old And The App Building Website Is Pretty Outdated As Well.

Great for testing apps and their designs with a computer.šŸ‘

Do not understand what this does. Only showed QR screen. No menu. Not a programmer. Very disappointed!!!

Works perfectly as described.

It doesn't work. everytime I tried to connect it's just failed

Not working. Error 1101. Unable to get response with specified url

never seems to load. one of the least reliable things I've seen.

I cant connect it to my phone even after scan the qr code then after reinstall the app still doesnt work

the app appears saying something about a six digit code and that is all. no instructions. immediately uninstalled.

keeps crashing. this is the only device/machine that works with app inventor 2

Doesn't do nothing when I scan or enter the barcode numbers

My phone's virus detector has found out that this app contains a Trojan virus

Bit of a shame, force closes when you connect. Could be really helpful

works well on my device and was a great way to get started on some coding

Brilliant no code development system, now available on a Chromebook through this Android app.

only once after the update I had problems running the app

doesn't work at all tried it so many times doesn't connect.

I didn't use tablet or what, but just Iphone( Apple ) and my school is doing this for HW. So, I can't download it so I can't try the game I create...

This app is so cool. It works great for my computer science class. I don't know where I'd be without it. 10/10 would recommend.

Worst it doesn't work when I am trying it to connect with my project

Lot of work is required on the app for seem less connection.


Malicious app, along with adware

This app is useful for coding and reviewing your apps beforehand.

for the most part ot was very good but it was a bit slow

I quickly got frustrated because it doesn't let you edit the Java code.

Nice app for learners

I am even using android phone but it dosent work . Fix it!!!!!!!!!

I have wifi working but the app says no internet connection. So I have to exit very annoyed

Can't connect MIT AI2 companion with AI companion Website sites

Great app. I would highly recommend this.

does not work on Samsung galaxy core prime.

I hate this app because i have been waiting for over an hour but still its not installed

Google app scanner shows trojan virus on this app

Great app that allow you to make great things

'Did you ever hear the Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the wise? I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful...

Excellent environment for my use case (hobby).

it wasn't working like it is suppose to what happen it was working before what happen

Easy to use, awesome concept

So apparently this app is not available on iOS. I have a class project in which we have to use this app but the thing is that i have an iPhone, so canā€™t do anything at all.

Not supported on all Android devices like advertised.

Connect to code is not working, my doubt is the app is fake

Had to use this in a class and I've always had issues with it.

Great app for learning to program on Android using the MIT app inventor web site

Very use full

BOO!I can't connect to my tabled or phone. USELESS!!!

great execept im having problems scanning :/

Nice app! Works well for me!

This app really help me to build my own apps

app disconnects with the inventor. or does updating the changes i am making.
