The Long View (Computerworld)
In this morning's IT Blogwatch, I rounded up bloggers' thoughts on Google's new App Inventor for Android. This is a drag'n'drop application development environment, which promises easy creation of smartphone apps, without mucking around with Java or other conventional languages. Interesting, but is there more to it than students and newbies writing trivial toy apps for phones? I think so, in The Long View. This is just one step on the road to IT freeing itself from Windows.
