I bought this so I could use it to teach/amuse my granddaughters as I was a programmer.

When I look at it, the tutorial font is too small to read and does not zoom on my iPhone with gestures. The page is also cropped at the sides with some of the rubric missing. Does not fit into iPhone screen.

Hopefully it might be usable on the iPad without having to pay twice. Otherwise it will be off to MIT.

Start scratch got me up and running with Scratch in no time!


I was able to read the tutorials and then absorb how Scratch worked. When I came to use Scratch I found it easier to navigate the interface and write my first program! It saved me a lot of time!!
