What is Tynker?
Computer programming is an important 21st century skill that kids can start learning at any age. While coding with Tynker, kids apply skills such as critical thinking, pattern recognition, focus, problem solving, debugging, resilience, sequencing, spatial visualization, and algorithmic thinking. The Tynker visual language makes it easy for them to learn and apply concepts like conditional logic, repetition, variables, and functions – the same coding concepts as any mainstream programming language.
Tynker is inspired by visual coding languages like Scratch from MIT, Alice from CMU, and languages like Logo, SmallTalk, and Squeak.

New Augmented Reality course added! Learn to use live video, detecting gestures and sensing real-world motion. Build your own AR versions of popular games like Fruit Ninja, Pong and Brick Breaker!

Good app but...
Hey, I like all you can do on this app, with Addons and stuff, I use it to customise all my stuff on minecraft. But just like you would normally do, there is only the minimum on Addons. For example, with the snowman trading post, you can only trade items with items, not blocks, and you can’t do double items for one item. I’d like to have a way of turning leather horse armour with one diamond into diamond horse armour, and I want to be able to trade items for enchanted items.
Another thing: you CANT CUSTOMISE ARMOUR
I’d love to be able to do this, because I want it to match my ‘ender sword’ that I made. You also can’t customise stuff like, for example, I customise a pumpkin head, and a snowman, yet the customised pumpkin head doesn’t appear customised on my snowman. Small things like these I need help with.
Even though this app and the website has its faults, I enjoy it overall. If I need to customise an object or item, I go here*. I make all my skins here too. Thanks for making this app, but please update it more regularly. Thanks!
*(With the customising, I can only change what the mod looks like, rather than giving it a whole new 3D shape. And I want to be able to have a library of parts, maybe from different mobs or something, to access to add on to my addon.)
One of the best
This is one of the best educational children’s coding games, there are also others like scratch jr and more but this one is one of the best
