My students have created Apps and we'd like to share them on our class webpage. Simply using the URL as a link is not working. How might I link to their APPS?

Hi Bobbi...

It would be tough because the only way you see projects is to log in by user... You could have everyone export their AIA files (I'll put instructions below) and then import them all into one account...  Then they could all view that via the projector.

Here are the steps:

  1. Click on the My Projects link at the top of the UI.
  2. When the list of projects shows up, put a checkmark by the project you want to export.
  3. Then click on the Project link (notice that they're similarly named but not the same)
  4. Choose Export selected project (.aia) to my computer...
That's it.  The file will be saved where all of your other downloads are saved, and it will have the format YourProjectName.aia!

Bobbi - If you don't already have an account at the App Inventor Gallery, you might get one. You could upload the student apps there under your username.
They cannot be tested or viewed, however, without downloading, but the students would get a kick out of having them there and you can upload a screen shot from each app.
Anyone could download and test the zip or aia projects from there.

By the blocks, I miss under screen 1 "Button1.Click"

What do I wrong?
