+ Kids, parents, and teachers love coding on Hopscotch:
“Wow, I never knew I could make my own game. I’m completely addicted. It’s so much more fun to make games than play them.” — Ethan, 12
“My daughter is obsessed with Hopscotch. Instead of playing games, she is building and publishing her own. It’s brilliant.” — Paul, dad
“I have used this app at my programming school for two years now…Stylistically it beats out everything else, and makes [competitors] look like a beta version from 1998...I recommend any educator to give it a try in your class since it is free.” — S., educator

What's New in Version 3.21.0
This update includes a bunch of bug fixes!
- Dragging blocks should be much faster on older iPads.
- Rotating will no longer break the keyboard layout.
- You can now use 3rd party keyboards with Hopscotch again.
- Free lesson plans and other educator resources are linked from settings in your profile.
The best programming app on iOS for youth and children!
Update: The last updates have focused on user friendliness and helping the app run smoother on older iPads (great for BYOD schools). There is also now an in-app link to helpful educational resources (e.g., transitioning from ScratchJr).
It allows the students to share with each other easily, and they can also publish to web to show off their latest projects to their parents.
It takes full advantage of all of the iPads sensors such as the microphone and accelerometer.
Stylistically it beats out everything else, and makes Scratch look like a beta version from 1998.
I recommend any educator to give it a try in your class since it is free.
Note: there is a subscription option which allows for using your own photos to make sprites and such. It does not interfere otherwise with using the app.
It use to be free!
And now it costs! Scratch is better than this.
I use to have this, and I loved it until the cost came, I couldn't do anything, because I had deleted this app and re-got it again, and I forgot how to do it, so when I came back, it cost. Before it cost, it was VERY helpful.
Do not get this game if your looking for an app that'll help you. Only get this if you are willing to pay a 100 dollars for a worthless membership for a worthless year.
Best App Ever
I love this app you have to get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Edit I wrote that when the videos weren't locked. These developers should really unlock them. Costs way too much now and most people won't play it just because of that. 😡😡😡
