Its actually pretty simple. As with all Google Products if you have a Gmail ID you already have access to a Google App Engine. You can use your Gmail ID and password to access the the App Engine Account. Makes it really simple doesn't it. Many folks underestimate the impact of the universal access the Gmail ID provides to so many services and products. If you are like me you hate to register at every different service provider and site that is there. This easily is one reason you should try out App Engine. You already have access to it.
