Format: Paperback
Yes, I know it says it covers "New MIT Version," but the code blocks do not match what is in App Inventor 2. I got midway through chapter 4 and gave up. Without the code block matching what was found on the website, it was almost impossible to find the right combination of blocks to make the app work. I searched for a day on their website trying to get the For Range and the While loops to work and put it aside to move on, but when I got into chapter 4 Calling Functions I gave up. I think I am just going to use the website's tutorial and hopefully they will be using the correct blocks for their examples. I have to admit that I was thinking of purchasing the book, if it came out with a version specifically for App Inventor 2. However, the way updates happen and changes are made I can see no real guarantee that MIT will not change the code block again. It does appear that the code blocks in this book would have been fine if MIT had left them as they were in version 1.

I like the easy to understand language and it's written with many pictures and vivid colors. The examples are very clear and well thought. Excellent book.

this book is very useful if you want to learn to use MIT's App Inventor, the computational capabilities of the software are a bit limited. However, this book provides very comprehensive and easy to understand steps to learn how to create your own apps. For $7 I would definitely recommend it.
