I am a Newbie, Need Guidance


First of all, I would like to thanks entire Thunkable Team for making such Platform. Building apps with Coding.

I am done with building simple apps (basic things) but when it is about high app development for example building an Earning app Like #ivan_moreno did.

How can a Newbie develop his coding skills or how can they know how to to build such thing?

I don’t see a page for such stuffs

Activity Starter = ( how does it work)
Push notification = ( how does it work)

I think developers should create an page with bunches of examples, so it would be beneficial for newbies like us.

What are the basic things I should learn 1st?

Andres Cotes I am having Some Problem With My Aia File Can You Help me to solve it? Or suggest me how to do it?


what is your problem, how can I help you?


Please Check Inbox I have sended you full details Bro


A forum is for learning from each other. Why not posting your question here so others can look at it?


Peter I have create another thread seeking for help why don’t you help me out there?


You are going from newbie with basic apps as you say, to developing earning apps in an hour. That’s quick. I can’t help you with earning apps. I don’t like earning apps. That is not why i make apps.


Actually Claiming myself as an earning app developer would be wrong. I just collected aia file and working on it.

Peter don’t you think your behaviour is slightly rude?
You could have put a glance how the things are then reply me ( No I will not able to do, I don’t develop earning apps)

Rather than saying NO you could have also suggest me to learn Programming or other things involved to make an earning app


We can start a whole discussion about behaviour but lets not do that.

You claim you are an earning developer in your next topic:

Further you want only “experts” to answer you. Why? A forum is about learning from each other, not ruling members out from answering your questions.


Why am I even talking with you? :unamused:



A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor’s Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook http://www.appinventor.org/book2 … the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book ‘teaches’ users how to program with AI2 blocks.
There is a free programming course here http://www.appinventor.org/content/CourseInABox/Intro and the aia files for the projects in the book are here: http://www.appinventor.org/bookFiles
How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here: http://www.appinventor.org/content/howDoYou/eventHandling .

Also do the tutorials http://appinventor.mit.edu/explore/ai2/tutorials.html to learn the basics of App Inventor, then try something and follow the Top 5 Tips: How to learn App Inventor
