    OMG, could it be a totally revamped and redesigned version of HelloPurr?

    OK, sorry for that. I'm still waiting on my invite, and feeling a little bitter. What's with the suspense?

    I waited a month or two for my invite.

    But maybe it's the announcement that they are opening it up to everyone finally. I know they had planned that for end of summer/fall timeframe.

    My invite just arrived last night. I also haven't had a chance to poke a stick at this yet.
    Chris

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    I think the original beta announcement was mid-July (so it's been about 6 weeks). I signed up a week after the announcement...late July and still nada. I know they're slowly releasing access. David Pogue's NYTimes writeup wasn't too kind, despite acknowledging it's in beta.

    I've tinkered a bit with the SDK. I'm really disappointed that AppInventor only allows one screen, and no market access. Of course, like someone already noted, we don't want thousands or millions of HelloPurr copies on the market, but I hope there's a way to get "legitimate" apps out there. Otherwise, I guess I'll code the hard way...the SDK is not difficult, just a lot of low-level (relatively speaking) tasks to deal with (e.g., managing image formats, polling, message handling, etc.). It looks like AppInventor also streamlines access to the hardware (e.g., camera, accelerometer, GPS).

    Yeah, I signed up after I read the announcement somewhere else - engadget maybe? Can't remember. Guess I was thinking it was June time frame.

    I tossed around the idea of getting into app building and this looked like an easy WYSIWYG method. But it is limited and the only real way to go is hard coding - something I don't have the time to learn right now.

    Maybe I'll buck the establishment and make a "HelloBark" or "HelloFleas" app since I'm not really a cat person.
