- MIT App Inventor 2
GradReadKeeper is the culmination of my work in Edtech 534, Mobile App Development. In this class, I created nine mobile applications using MIT App Inventor 2 (AI2) and the AI2 tutorials/textbook. The final project was a full application of my own design.
For my final app, I brainstormed ideas based off of my first app, QuixoticKeeper. I wanted to create a more polished, user-friendly, and refined application.
GradReadKeeper allows the user to utilize three different lists:
- Required reading
- Recommended reading
- Reading for fun
The app has four screens, including the home screen and a screen for each book list. From the home screen, the user can use a barcode scanner on their smartphone to scan a book and capture the ISBN number. After capturing the ISBN number, the user can search Google using that data.
Download GradReadKeeper to your device by scanning the QR code below.
I created two videos that demonstrate how to use the barcode scanner and list features of this app. You can view the videos at the links below:
