3. You will be asked to provide a name for your project. Our first project will be 'TalkToMe'. Project names cannot have any spaces in them.


4. If you have already used App Inventor you can also start a new project by selecting 'Project' and then 'Start new project' in the drop down menu.

5. This is what your screen will look like in the 'Designer' mode. In the 'Designer' mode, the 'Viewer' shows you how your App will look on the phone. 'Components' will show you the parts that you have added to your App. 'Properties' allows you to change the characteristics of the components in your App.

6. To the left of the 'Viewer' is the 'Palette.' The 'Palette' window gives you all the components you can work with. The list is long so each heading contains only some of the components.
