Ratings and Reviews
Great for students
I would have gave it a 5, But freeplay mode is a bit buggy. And does not give you unlimited movements. But overall it is great for kids! But please add a grade selection. For grades pre k through kinder a voice should read the instructions. 1 through 6
Or higher should have levels to complete that get (harder)
We can't drag the commands to the program area. Every time we do the select text menu pops up.
Got this to teach 5 year old to code. Wanted to love this app, but Scratch Jr. is much better. The app didn't load properly on the latest iOS running on iPad Air 2. The screen was stuck in portrait mode so only can see half the screen (orientation lock was not on). Liked the idea behind the challenges, but for whatever reason the challenges stopped after "when". Not worth the hassle IMHO. Scratch Jr. is much easier to use and has much more features--5 year old was creating own stories and animations after one weekend with Scratch Jr.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
