“Hopscotch is the best way to express your imagination! Most other "learn to code" apps just make you complete boring levels with 4 "move" blocks, but in hopscotch you have the freedom to create anything, which is amazing.” — BuildASnowman, Hopscotcher

“This taught me sooooo much about basics of coding. I have been able to make some cool games I hope to learn more as I advance this app was extremely helpful and easy to learn.” — BestBeginnersCoding, Hopcotcher

“I had ZERO background or programming experience. I personally checked all 8 or 10 of these blogs about recommendations. And Hopscotch was the most intuitive and interactive. It’s not like you’re just playing video games. My daughter loves it!” Mom, S. to daughter, 8

“I am a 4th grade teacher who LOVES your app. Our students have been introduced to coding through it and I am impressed with the creativity they have shown and the skills they are building while creating projects.” — Kelley, 4th grade teacher

Editors’ Notes

“Coding” may sound a bit dry and daunting to some newcomers, but those are the last things that come to mind while using Hopscotch. The app lets you have as much fun making games as playing them, and with its colorful, friendly interface and stacks of help and tutorials, kids (and grown-ups!) can build all kinds of apps—while learning the fundamentals of programming. Best of all, you can share your creations so anyone with an iPhone or iPad can play them too!

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
5. everything: make everything for free when you download this app because I don’t wanna waste any money but also make the app 4.99 and people who already downloaded the app won’t have to pay!
6. EⓂ️⭕️JIS: you know we already have a bunch of great emojis but why use their emojis when you can create your own? make a custom emoji button and it will bring up some custom emojis! you can make your own emojis or use hopscotch emojis!
7. 🔈💭Sound Maker: make your own sounds for this block!
__________________________ Record the sound then draw a
|Start Sound O wait 500| picture for the sound and your good to go!

Very Easy to Use And fun too


Wow! I’ve had hopscotch for a few months now, and I’ve got to say- this app has made me a great app maker. It has also made math fun! The only thing I’d like to add is can you please make a block “Start over”? This way we won’t have to make everything invisible and so forth... please consider this. Also, can you please try to add a block that you can record your own sounds? This app is SO helpful. Thank you so much hopscotch! This app has changed my life!

Hi I see u replied to my review but didn’t answer one of my questions. I was thinking how the sound block isn’t very useful, there are few sounds to work with. Can u PLEASE make a record sound block? It would be SO helpful. Anyways, thanks for writing back! I will give five stars if u make this record feature! Thanks!

Developer Response

Congrats on becoming a great app maker :) While there isn't a "Start Over" block, there are a few ways you can do it yourself! The best way to learn how is to look at games in the community that have this feature. Play around with the code, learn how it works, and then implement in your games. BAM!
