Sometimes it’s fun to use App Inventor components for things they weren’t initially designed for. This App Inventor tutorial will show you how to use the App Inventor notifier component to create a welcome message for your apps.
This is just one example of using the notifier component for something different, but you could just as easily use the notifier component to bring up a helpful or funny message when someone clicks on a button or image. Use your imagination!

App Inventor only allows Apps up to 5MB in size, and this causes issues when adding multimedia items such as images, audio and video to your Apps. This App Inventor tutorial video explains how you can get around the size limit by pulling your multimedia items from a server instead of uploading them directly to the App Inventor media section in the components editor.
