What's New in Version 1.0.4
The Hour of Code is now longer than an hour! To celebrate, we've added a bunch of cool stuff for you. Now:
- We're on the iPad! Coding on the go is fun again.
- Make a webpage from the app with your own photo, bio, and more, and share it with your friends to show off what you've learned!
- Start learning HTML on the go
- Pick a path for future learning on your desktop
The only problem with the app is the lack of languages on offer.
A great idea would be to have it directly connected with your web account and include every exercise and language from that. I know it's possible, because you taught me it is ;)
Thanks a lot guys :) looking forward to learning PHP tomorrow!
So good to have such an educational little app on here. I only recently found out about Codeacademy recently through the Engadget show podcast about technology and education and looked at the website yesterday and found this app today. Marvellous for beginners. Look forward to future updates. So pleased this has been released.
Great but needs improvement
This is a great starting point as stated and the app is beautiful as well as very user friendly, however with regard to educational value it feels overly simplified and just does not stand up to the web based content available! There is no practicing what you've learnt and the tasks are no more than simple multiple choice. Pros and cons, it's a great app however and a fantastic starting point, especially in app form!
