    App development software

    I was wondering what people on here are using for students to create apps in their IT lessons.

    To start with, what should i be recommending to the IT teachers?

    Thanks

    We use MIT App Inventor. Works quite well.

    @jstuttard how do you get round the needing of a google account for pupils under 13? Our It teachers are starting to look at it and we've come up against this issue.

    Kodu, GameMaker and Scratch here - not strictly programming I know, but I thought possibly relevant...

    Is anyone using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 we are tempted to try that here and using C#.

    I was more thinking along the lines of mobile app development rather than coding in visual studio or an alternative.
