How can I use AppInventor for iOS? Any link to website/builder?

I don't think that's possible anymore. I also tried to become a tester:

Obviously too late ... :sob:


how install this app on my iphone 11 pro with ios 14 ? thanks !

Are there any updates to the companion's public release?

Can you tell me if there will be a way of creating an android app and converting it to an ios app from App inventor automatically?


Yes, most likely at some point ... :wink:
