+ Kids, parents, and teachers love coding on Hopscotch:
“Wow, I never knew I could make my own game. I’m completely addicted. It’s so much more fun to make games than play them.” — Ethan, 12
“My daughter is obsessed with Hopscotch. Instead of playing games, she is building and publishing her own. It’s brilliant.” — Paul, dad
“I have used this app at my programming school for two years now…Stylistically it beats out everything else, and makes [competitors] look like a beta version from 1998...I recommend any educator to give it a try in your class since it is free.” — S., educator

What's New in Version 3.24.1
Quick release to fix open in app for iOS 11.
It's easier than ever to code with the introduction of custom rules!
This means that you can making something cool in just 3 taps:
add an object
add a rule (for example: Make Fireworks)
press play to see what you made!
The update comes with awesome default rules (like Draw a Background). You can also save your own rules or groups of rules and reuse them between objects. Making amazing, complex projects just got a lot easier, am I right?!
Questions? Concerns? Let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The best programming app on iOS for youth and children!
Update: Hopscotch remains a well-maintained platform for learning programming and creative expression. The latest update expanded the customization features and added new sprites.
It allows the students to share with each other easily, and they can also publish to web to show off their latest projects to their parents. It takes full advantage of all of the iPads sensors such as the microphone and accelerometer. Stylistically it beats out everything else, and makes Scratch look like a beta version from 1998.
There is an in-app link to helpful educational resources (e.g., transitioning from ScratchJr).
I recommend any educator to give it a try in your class since it is free.
Note: there is a subscription option which allows for using your own photos to make sprites and such. It does not interfere otherwise with using the app.
Awesome but needs more!
This is ABSOLUTELY my favorite game! 5 stars and 1082 hearts(if that's even a thing) but we need more! This is my list of what to add which I will work on until I can't think of anymore!
1. Stop block: A block that stops the movements of objects which can be a red block
2. Random block: A block that's magenta but it will choose random blocks inside it for you
3. Organized magenta blocks: organize magenta blocks by making the default blocks orange the bump blocks pink and the variable blocks gray
4. A course of challenges: make actual levels by making 3 gamemodes one is called freestyle mode where you have your account only another is internet mode where you can play projects and course mode where hopscotchers attempt levels
Hopscotch is for Everyone?
You need to pay for membership... without membership, you get poorly drawn profile pictures, and you can't use your own pictures in games! Hopscotch is for everyone? Not what I thought. At least you can use emojis for sprites so I will give this 3, not 2.
EDIT: Now that I know why it has membership, I give 5 stars
