Ratings and Reviews
Really great in teaching the fundamentals
Learning... at a price (your personal information)
I was very excited when I heard about grasshopper. It’s from Google, so I had high expectations for this app. I wanted to try it out and see if I could use it help teach my kid. Well, I’m never going to have that opportunity as the first thing the app asks is to sign in using a google account which will share data about you. I can see no reason whatsoever why Google should *require* you to sign in to use this app. Google team, if your goal is to be altruistic and provide a public service then just make the app available without requiring sign-in and user tracking. This is pretty shameful especially in light of the Facebook revelations. This is just tone deaf. Quit the tracking!
Torn. Great but...
I was thrilled to find this app. I was looking for an easy way to start coding. Clean, easy to use, and had links to more detailed support forum pages to discuss and dive into puzzles more of you need it. However, I started to get a little bored with it. It usually spends one puzzle per concept, and hardly has a larger puzzle to combine concepts or challenge the user to think harder than the surface introduction. I would love to see more involved puzzles, that have less step by step guidance to help me think independently about concepts.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
