APP INVENTOR 2 EXTENSIONS
Coding101 has developed a number of App Inventor 2 extensions with which students can create more variety of AI2 projects.
AI2 IFTTT EXTENSION
IFTTT (www.ifttt.com) is a web service standing for IF-This-Then-That. It consists of services with which users can customize plans in which when a triggering service occurs, the subsequent service will ensue. With AI2 IFTTT Extension, students can create apps that turn on / off smart devices, have mBot call you up when someone passes by etc.
AI2 THINGSPEAK EXTENSION
ThingSpeak (www.thingspeak.com) is a cloud database with which users can send real-time data feed to, and it will generate and display the data graph. With AI2 ThingSpeak Extension, students can create a simple IOT project in which mBot connects the data and sends to ThingSpeak real-time.
AI2 SNAPSHOT EXTENSION
This extension is an enhancement to AI2 Camera component. AI2 Camera component simply brings up the camera app and requires human interaction for photo taking. AI2 Snapshot Extension requires none of human interaction and will take photo immediately when the command is executed, and the photo will be stored in the mobile device for offline access.
Note: this extension is not fully tested with all brands of mobile devices - and thus can't guarantee to work with any specific devices unless tested.
