“Hopscotch is the best way to express your imagination! Most other "learn to code" apps just make you complete boring levels with 4 "move" blocks, but in hopscotch you have the freedom to create anything, which is amazing.” — BuildASnowman, Hopscotcher

“This taught me sooooo much about basics of coding. I have been able to make some cool games I hope to learn more as I advance this app was extremely helpful and easy to learn.” — BestBeginnersCoding, Hopcotcher

“I had ZERO background or programming experience. I personally checked all 8 or 10 of these blogs about recommendations. And Hopscotch was the most intuitive and interactive. It’s not like you’re just playing video games. My daughter loves it!” — Mom, S. to daughter, 8

“I am a 4th grade teacher who LOVES your app. Our students have been introduced to coding through it and I am impressed with the creativity they have shown and the skills they are building while creating projects.” — Kelley, 4th grade teacher

What's New

Version 3.31.3

In this update students and teachers alike will have reason to celebrate. You're getting nine free coding tutorials to get your class started on the right foot. And if that wasn't enough, read on for more features!

- When you start a new project, you'll notice a fresh new section of videos that will teach you the basics of coding. And you know it's legit cause the tutorials are all aligned with Apple's Everyone Can Code curriculum.
- Students and teachers were having trouble finding all the projects from their class. That's because they were really hidden. There's a new section called "My Class" in your profile so you can easily share games and code with your classmates.
- Several of you wrote to us that the parental gate wasn't working when you put in your birthday. We were trying to be clever and had two types of gate, that didn't work so we're going with simple. If you're over 13, just enter your birthday to share a Hopscotch project or email for help.
- And one bug fix: some projects were just hanging out forever with the loading bear. Whoops! Thanks TheCMStudios for catching that!

As always, shoot us an email at with any questions/comments/suggestions. You might just show up in the next release notes!

Editors' Notes

“Coding” may sound a bit dry and daunting to some newcomers, but those are the last things that come to mind while using Hopscotch. The app lets you have as much fun making games as playing them, and with its colourful, friendly interface and stacks of help and tutorials, kids (and grown-ups!) can build all kinds of apps—while learning the fundamentals of programming. Best of all, you can share your creations so anyone with an iPhone or iPad can play them too!

Love it but add


I love this game but you should add a button where when you press it, it will say tap on the item you want to disappear then you tap the button again the item will disappear but when you tap it twice all the it will come back it would make it easier to make different levels

Some thing for this game!

da lenny face

I think there should be a 3d version of this game with a camera and a glue And in both games, there will be a “phantom” that lets things go thru the object and an “unphantom” that DOESN’T let things thru it. And the 3d version will have 2d and 3d objects. We could make “baldi’s basic in education and learning”. Really? SUBSCRIBE? We should let our imagination Rome free without buying anything! And the play area should be sizeable. By!

Developer Response

Hey Lenny face,
Thanks for the idea! We would love to make it easier for you to do 3D stuff in Hopscotch though I can’t promise we’ll get to it super soon. In the meantime, you should check out “1st Person 3D forest” and “Minecraft Sneakup” to get ideas for how you can already do 3D in Hopscotch.
As for having to subscribe, I also wish you could have everything for free! Hopscotch costs a lot of money to keep running and to add cool new features like you’ve requested so we do have to charge money for certain parts of the app.  
Please reach out to with any more great ideas you have, we love to hear from you!
