"Tutorials for Scratch" brings you a whole bunch of video tutorials to get you going making your own games in the new version of Scratch 2.0. This are not the sort of standard tutorials that you find on the web. During the videos you will be set tasks to do in scratch and hopefully you will be able to complete them on your own. However don't worry the next video in each project will show you how to complete the task!!
These videos are really targeted at primary/elementary students although the content will go on to stretch and challenge even the most able of them with variables, cloning, broadcasting and many other features of Scratch.
There's even a quiz in the app so you can test your scratch knowledge too!!
Scratch really is a fantastic way into learning programming and coding and this app hopefully will be a great asset to get you going with it.
This is a big app of just under 300Mb, because there is so much material in it. You will need to be hooked into your WiFi connection!!
*TEACHERS* the point of this app is that kids can use the iPad alongside the pc to build their games in Scratch. You can just sit back and relax without having to plan anything. Oh and there is enough material to keep your students busy for around 6 hours, even if they don't manage to have a go at the extension tasks that are identified for all 4 games!!

Ratings and Reviews
A clearly presented series of presentations for which the author (despite some other reviewers comments) more than earns the 79p. My daughter (8) worked through these independently and had hours of fun creating the games. The scratch program is free online but until working through these presentations and despite being taught it at school, she was unaware of half the functions and features. Excellent resource and worth the money.
P.s. I'm guessing anyone who can read got this far! Those who can't keep up the negative reviews, the only one who looks foolish is you!
Brilliant tutorial style app. Thank you. My daughter (aged 7) has independently worked her way through the tasks and games by running the app on the iPad alongside the laptop where she creates in Scratch. She watches and listens to the video tutorial, stops to copy the steps on the computer, then when she's got it, continues to the next step. Just like having a teacher in the room who works at your own pace. Lovely clear simple language and instructions and easy to follow steps to get you started. Well worth the very modest purchase price.
This app is useless. It should say it's a tutorial video thing but it doesn't. I enjoy(ed) scratch and thought that this would be making a game or something but it's just a bunch of videos telling u how to make stupid games that I don't even want to make!!!! Very disappointed with this app and u shouldn't wast ur money on it.
