An app that predicts fortunes

Follow the instructions on this screen and follow them in the MIT App Inventor. Try to make each instruction yourself, if you are not sure how - click the arrow to the left of the instruction to get more detailed instructions.

Now we want the fortune teller not only to make a sound, but to predict the future for us!


We would like to show the user the instructions in one text box, and the forecast in another text box. We will set the software to display as a forecast text from a list given to it. Each time the button is pressed, the app will display a different forecast.

Well done,  Prepare a futures app!

Now we will check in the emulator that the application works - we will press the button and make sure that it makes a sound  And presents the fortunes (every other time).

Everything works the way you wanted?
