See how it works (animation was created mirroring my phone with Mobizen)

thanks again. nothing to do but click dismiss. so then clicked build apk, then a little window popped up, scanned the QR, etc., and now have my app running on my android--very nice!

again wish all the instructions were on the appinventor webpages. there are about 10 steps, 7 are nicely described, but at least 3 key steps are not even mentioned. obvious to all you experts, but not to a new user. I'm a top top software programmer, it's just that appinventor is new to me. I think I have the steps needed.

separate question, should I build apk or aab?

Aab is needed only if you plan to upload your app in Google Play Store.

ok, yes, I want google play store.
