Download the MIT AI2 Companion App from the Google Play Store and install it on your phone or tablet. Getting the app through Google Play Store is preferred because you will get automatic updates. If your mobile device has a QR code reader app installed, you can scan the QR code image below.

NOTE: Direct APK download (requires manual updates) Go into your phone's settings, choose "Security" Scroll down and allow "Unknown Sources" by checking the box. (This allows apps that are not from the Play Store to be installed on the device.). Scan this QR code OR Type this URL into a web browser on your device: http://appinv.us/companion.

(7) Once you've installed the AI2 Companion app, you can connect your App Inventor project to your phone or tablet for live testing While you're building an app on your computer, you can test it on a connected Android phone or tablet.

(9) See your app on your connected device You will know that your connection is successful when you see your app on the connected device.

TalkToMe: Your first App Inventor app - 9.

(10) Change the Text on the Button In the properties panel, change the text for the Button. Under the Text property, select "Text for Button 1", delete it and type in "Talk To Me". Notice that the text on your app's button changes right away too.. TalkToMe: Your first App Inventor app - 10.

(11) Add a Text-to-Speech component to your app Go to the Media drawer in the Palette and drag out a TextToSpeech component. Drag and drop it onto the Viewer. Notice that it drops down under "Non-visible components" because it is not something that will show up on the app's user interface. It's more like a tool that is available to the app.. TalkToMe: Your first App Inventor app - 11.

(12) Switch over to the Blocks Editor It's time to tell your app what to do. The Blocks Editor is where you program the behavior of your app. Click the button "Blocks" to move over to the Blocks Editor. You will often toggle between the Designer and Blocks Editor as you develop apps.. TalkToMe: Your first App Inventor app - 12.

(13) The Blocks Editor There are Built-in blocks that handle things like math, logic, and text. Below that are the blocks that go with each of the components you add to your app. (In order to get the blocks for a certain component to show up in the Blocks Editor, you first add that component to your app in the Designer.). TalkToMe: Your first App Inventor app - 13.

(14) Make a button click event Click on the Button1 drawer. Click and hold the when Button1.Click do event block. Drag it over to the Viewer and drop it there. This block will launch when the button on your app is clicked. It is called an "Event Handler".. TalkToMe: Your first App Inventor app - 14.

(15) Program the TextToSpeech action Click on the TextToSpeech drawer. Click and hold the call TextToSpeech1.Speak block. Drag it over to the Viewer and drop it there. This is the block that will make the phone speak. Because it is inside the Button.Click, it will run when the button on your app is clicked.. TalkToMe: Your first App Inventor app - 15.

(16) Fill in the message socket on TextToSpeech.Speak Block Now you need to tell the TextToSpeech.Speak block what to say. Cick on the Text drawer, drag out a text block and plug it into the socket labeled "message".. Specify what the app should say when the button is clicked Click on the text block and type in "Congratulations! You've made your first app." (Feel free to use any phrase you like.). TalkToMe: Your first App Inventor app - 16.

(17) Now test it out! Go to your connected device and click the button. Make sure your volume is up! You should hear the phone speak the phrase out loud. (This works even with the emulator.).
