We hope that everyone is staying safe in these difficult times. Meanwhile, we have been hard at work preparing the next release of MIT App Inventor. Version nb183 will be released Saturday night (US Eastern Time) and will include a new companion (2.58). You only need to update the companion to access new functionality.
Here are some highlights in the new release:
- New components: Navigation (Maps); MagneticFieldSensor (Sensors); Serial (Connectivity)
- New blocks: number base block; reverse text block; replace all mappings block; for each key, value in dictionary block
Release notes for the testing version are available here if you are interested in all of the changes in this version.
