App inventor For Android's Uses in the Classroom

My mad scientist hat has just been blown through the roof. Google has just released an App Inventor for Android that makes it easy for anyone with no program knowledge to build complex Apps for Android phones. The educational uses for this seem limitless. What could you use an App Inventor program for if you had Android phones in the classroom?

Very interesting. I'll definitely apply and check it out. Might help make my next phone buying decision easier too.
No I just signed up two nights ago.
An interesting review.

Looks like the app builder might not be as easy as one would hope.
I know it is never going to happen but this would be great for the iPhone, the number of students that I teach with iPhones, iPod Touches or iPads is astonishing.

Maybe in a couple of years when Android is in phones, tablets and netbooks.
