    Make apps and also get the source code? Do you mean like the websites that let you build pages with templates? Doubtful. I'm not sure someone would offer that since everyone and their brother would then try and sell said apps after minimal modification

    Take a look at PhoneGap and the MIT App Inventor. I haven't used MIT's Inventor project, but I have used PhoneGap briefly as part of a large project. I can't say whether the MIT App Inventor will return full source code at the end, but PhoneGap works by building apps with web APIs (CSS 3, HTML 5, etc.).

    PhoneGap may do what you want, but it won't be a native Android application.

    Default Odp: Websites for Creating Android Apps

    You can develop for free on Android, all you need is to visit

    http://developer.android.com/index.html

    There all info how to get started there i recommand to learn how system works and its structure ( things like Activity, Service, Intent, Manifest, Layout) before even start thinking about application. Android application work like ordenery application and its use heavily object oriented nature of Java and you might be confused at begining.

    When you say audio collection do you mean like a sound recorder ? Or media player ? Both are possible with MIT appinventor but appinventor does not produce java. Phonegap will do the same and will compile Java but you'll have to write it in javascript. If you want to do something like maipulate sound files or do augmented reality then youll need to learn java and use the android sdk. Big learning curve.
    If you havent programmed before consider spending a day or two with appinventor, it has access to most of the sensors and has a very easy to learn blocks based system. performance isn't wonderful but it's not bad either.

    I played around with the MIT Inventor a few years ago when it was still the "Google App Inventor" (MIT picked it up after Google discontinued it). Its actually pretty cool and does generate code that will run on Android, though at least when it was still Google App Inventor, it was not possible to publish the code to the market. But, maybe that's changed.

    Good luck!
