Level 1Create an app with a single button. The button should start off having '1' written on it. Every time you click the button, the number displayed should increase by 1.
Level 2Create an app with the words 'Watch Me' in a text box. There should be two buttons, 'Red' and 'Blue'. Everytime you click red.
Level 3Create an app with a single input and a button. The button's text should read 'Say It.' When you click the button, a popup should come up, saying whatever you typed in.
Level 4Create an app with two inputs, and one button. The button should say Combine. When you click combine, an alert should pop up, showing what was typed into the two inputs, added together. (For example, if 'Hello' is in one input and 'Its me' in the other, the alert should read 'Hello Its Me')
Level 5There should be two buttons on the app, one reading Cat, and the other reading Dog. Clicking on Cat will take you to a new page with the word cat on it. There should also be a back button on that page. Clicking dog will take you to a similar page, only dog is written on it, instead of cat.
Level 6Make a calculator! There should be two inputs where the user can enter numbers. And an add, subtract, and multiply button that the user can use to see the results of performing that operation on the two entered numbers! Make your calculator look good, too!
