Praise from our users:
“I totes adore Hopscotch! I feel like it has helped me learn a lot. I want to be an engineer and computer techno person when I grow up.” —Genesis, age 11
"This is the best app I have ever put on my kids' iPads."
—Bill Genereux, Digital media technology teacher and dad
"BTW, Hopscotch is so much fun! I went to Hawaii and for the whole 8 hour flight I played on it. The whole time! Thanks for being so awesome!!!!! :D”—Amara, age 9
"Great job!!! I'm seventy two years old, old - time amateur Apple II programmer and I used to teach my kids how to program with Logo. Now, I do the same with my grandchildren, using Hopscotch."
—P. Chatzisarantis, Grandfather
"You guys are incredible. I've never seen such a simple and powerful learning tool.” —M. Meyers, science and programming teacher
Why learn to code? Computer Science is among the highest paid college degrees and programming jobs are growing at 2x the national average. By the year 2020, there will be a projected 1.4 million computer jobs but only 400,000 CS students. Even if kids don’t grow up to be programmers, the problem solving and critical thinking skills they will obtain playing Hopscotch are necessary for every career path. Hopscotch was inspired by MIT’s Scratch.
Recommended for kids ages 8 to ∞.

What's New in Version 2.10.1
Minor: Fixed that pesky bug where check once if was not working properly within a repeat forever loop if you are using values.
If that sounds confusing, yay! you probably didn't experience the bug. If you know what we mean, yay! we fixed it!
So, the only reason why I know this app it's because I do this school thing called apprenticeships and we (6th graders) go to big companies, (SanDisk, Cisco, Google, Thermal Fisher) and we do things that involve innovation. So, I went to Cisco, and we played with iPads, Then we used Hopscotch, it was so much fun to use, then I went home and downloaded Hopscotch, then when I downloaded this app, I couldn't program😭!! I have an iPod touch... I really wanna program and I had my hope up so high. I really want you to get iPods have the same abilities as iPads. JUST PLEASE, OH, PLEASE!! 😔😭😔😭😔😭😔😭
Was great fun until we encountered major bug
Playing on an iPad Air 2 with the Food Fight module. I was cruising along with the instructional video (which is a bit outdated so it isn't entirely accurate) and feeling great after successfully programming my first character to throw cake when the darned bug appeared. Went to program the second character but couldn't 'cause the necessary programming commands stopped appearing on screen. I could only see half of what was supposed to appear. Very disappointing but I'm hoping the issue will be fixed sooner than later!
:( & :)
I really enjoy this app because you can play cool games that can't be found anywhere else, but I can't make an account or games! And I have no idea how either!! Maybe it's because I'm on my iPhone, or I'm just stupid.... Plz add a tutorial or something!!! Other than that, it's the best game-- or should I say games, in the whole wide world!!!
