Android App Inventor - Closing Down

With the winding down of Google Labs, Google has announced that Android App Inventor will no longer be supported by Google and will be converted to an Open Source application.

The service will remain available until at least the end of the year, however the URL will change in the near future. The viability of the product will depend on a benefactor taking control of the project and providing hosting.
