    If you look at it, its basically a clone of scratch (the educational language designed to get kids interested in programming/logic). Microsoft have a very similar thing in Kudo on the 360.

    Nice idea if you ask me. Although of course the number of crappy apps will peak :)

    While I am sure the amount of crappy apps will increase, probability wise it also means there may be a few more good ones as well. I for one just cant wait to get a chance to use it, because it seems like such a good opportunity to make something great in the mobile space, and so many games could be built that dont have to be sophisticated 3d games.

    Actually, thinking about it, I might actually use this to make a game for my nexus one!
