Post the link to your Google Docs document that has the photo of your app interface displayed on your smartphone, and the screenshot(s) of your Component Designer that displays your work-in-progress.
*Remember to change your "Share" settings (top-right corner) of your document to "Anyone with the link" so we can see it.

Link to Doc with Pictures

My initial plan included having a border to make things look neat, but that was an almost immediately scrapped idea given the amount of space for the staff and buttons I knew I would need. I changed the orientation to landscape because of the number of buttons I wanted to have in sequence and the orientation makes the app look better. I'm curious to see if I can add a question mark icon which will bring the user to another screen for a tutorial. I had issues with what you see on the components page not being what you get on your phone. I'm anxious to see what this app looks like on other phones, but we only have Evo 4gs at home.

I'm missing sound components for all the pitches because I need to pick up a good audio recorder from school so the tones come through cleanly.

I don't like using the vertical/horizontal screen arrangement tools to create space between buttons. I watched a few AppInventor YouTube videos and it seems to be my only option. Am I correct?

Yes, that would be the best solution for now.

This is what I have so far:











As you can see, it does not get much more simple than this. No, this is not the final app I want to create. My next step is to see if I can figure out how to create a list of images that will cycle through the screen area.

Yeah, I suppose it would help if I read the directions and put the images in a Google doc first and posted that link here.

Link to the Google doc. I'm really sorry to have clogged up this thread.

Another tiny app-

This time all my writing is on the Google Doc. This is NOT the exact same app as the one I posted yesterday. This one is a little more advanced. - If I should put this in AI9, please let me know. Since I'm going off on my own tangent while I learn the language, I'm not sure where to post my progressions.

Link to Google Doc (you may want to right click and open in new window/tab)

Feedback is welcomed! Thank you.

I wanted to have her able to fill in every block in the puzzle but that would have taken a ridiculous amount of coding. Instead she can work it out on paper and only needs to hit the red blocks. It would have been possible if the app inventor had a method like Scratch does to make a copy of a sprite.

I would have included a bar code but it won't package. I think I found a bug or I just made it way too big.

Do you mean you could test it on your mobile device in development mode, but the .apk would not download to your mobile device? If you could download it to your device, you could create a code. Based on the blocks you posted, it's unlikely your app will be too big, unless there are multimedia files.

Here is the link to my Google Doc: http://goo.gl/qZZHZy

My interface is fairly plain. I've considered adding images in place of the buttons to style it a bit. I had to pare down the functionality of my app from the initial proposal, because what I wanted to do required too much database work, which is beyond my skill level, so I went with a simple option to download archived audio instead of a populated list button. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

There is beauty in simplicity, which is good.
I like how you make the mechanism easier for the users of your app.

If you would like to have the components spaced out a bit, you could use the Layout arrangements.
You could also have users link to a website of those archived files and play over the internet instead of (or as an alternative to) downloading to the device.
