What is a AIA file?

An AIA file is a Zip-compressed project file created by MIT App Inventor, a web program used to teach beginning developers to create Android and iOS applications. It contains multiple folders and files, including .BKY, SCM, and YAIL source code files. AIA files are used to save backups of App Inventor projects and share them with other users.

App Inventor allows you to drag and drop elements, such as buttons, images, text boxes, and sliders, to create a mobile application and program its functionality. When you save an App Inventor project, it is typically saved to your online account. However, you can also download App Inventor projects as AIA files. To download a project as an AIA file, select Projects and choose Export selected project (.aia) to my computer.
