Lunch & Learn – Invent Your Own Apps Workshop (2): App Artists 101 – A Painting App


Do you wish to keep your digital skills on the cutting edge?

Join us at Trehaus for our Lunch & Learn – Create Your Own Apps – App Inventor Series to experience the most popular mobile platforms worldwide. In this 3 part series, participants will be introduced to the interface of the MIT App Inventor Platform, and be able to create their own customised Voice Recognition App by the 3rd session.

The series in a nutshell:

[2 May 2017] MIT App Inventor Overview:

Get started in this exciting introduction to the App Inventor interface! Create your very 1st “Hello Singapore!” App and learn how to do Live Testing on an actual Android Device using the AI2 Companion App as well as packaging your App for downloading to your friends’ phones using a QR code.

[9 May 2017] App Artists 101 – A Painting App:

In this exercise, you will design your very own painting app. The app allows you to draw in the colour you want and has a button to clear the canvas. Learn how to add buttons and labels, which change colour according to the canvas’ colour. You will also program the canvas to draw when the user touches the canvas.

[16 May 2017] Simple Voice Recognition:

Using Buttons and Textboxes, you are now going to start building the skeleton of the voice recognition App. Add in text-to-speech and speech recognizer components, and start to program the Buttons to call the transcribe function, as well as change colour and start on click.

Now, program an algorithm which interprets your transcribed speech and react based on that understanding. You are well on your way to completing your App; let’s add a few customisation options – Change your font type, size, colour, and Voila! Such fun!
