“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

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 firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions/comments/suggestions. You might just show up in the next release notes!
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 colorful, 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!
Need a better drawing pad!
One would purchase a yearly subscription but for two things one (as yet!.) I know one of these is not available yet.
1.) A better drawing pad.
2.) The capability to make app like thingy bobs.
One has just started a mouth (kiss 👄 resuscitation.) subscription and thus a little disappointing is the lack of a good art pad like sketchbook! (/other!.).
Sorry 😐! But one is a creative person and art plays a big part in ones creativity.
This app has boosted my confidence with coding, I’ve learnt a lot and had a fun time making all the games that they teach you to make. It’s a good way to link in with friends and show them what you created and playing other people’s games, trying to beat you’re best score!
