Ratings and Reviews
“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!
You are much to restricted if you don’t “upgrade”. For starters, you cannot draw a background and save it so it’s on your game. Secondly, the drawing options are limited. There’s no fill options, no different types of strokes. In other words, it gets quite annoying when I’m dragging my finger across my screen to colour in something. Like I said previously, why not add a fill option. Thirdly, you can’t have unlimited projects. You are limited to how many projects you can make. Lastly, the coding options. One doesn’t have a large variety to choose from. I’ve been on websites that have a greater variety of coding options. Yes it fine to charge money, as that’s simply how you be successful in this particular industry however one cannot take advantage of it. Find a balance between the two. Not everyone wants to pay for a better version. The free version should be good. It’s unreasonable to make the free version so restricted and so much worse than the “upgrade”. This is my opinion on this app. I did not enjoy it for these reasons however one may have a different outlook on it although as a producer they should take into consideration that this is a problem and if they were to fix it, I, and maybe others, would have a better experience.
Just a little update
Hello! I just want to let you know hopscotch is good and all, but it needs more sound. You should add a feature where you could add the games music ( No upgrade) But If you upgrade and go to music you could put custom music from YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, etc. (Upgrade) Thank You hopscotch for reading this and maybe you could do it!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for following up with this important question: custom sounds! We agree that this would be super helpful. I can only imagine the weird and wonderful sounds people would create. Hopefully, we can offer this to you someday, but it's not on our immediate roadmap. Among other reasons, we'd have to make sure that all the sounds were safe, which is a huge undertaking! Ana
