MIT has placed its revival of the recently open-sourced App Inventor software from Google into public beta.

Continuing its revival of Google's App Inventor tool, MIT has placed the software into public beta. This follows the open sourcing back in January, and comes as part of a three-month project to get the Android app creation tool into people's hands. The beta is open for anyone with a Google account. MIT says it's suitable for "any use, including running classes," but as with any beta warns of potential stability issues — you should probably make sure you have backups of all your important app projects. If all goes well, App Inventor should become a full MIT service soon enough, with the institute pledging to produce resources and support to help budding developers get their Android apps out of the door.
