Hopscotch is coding made for you.
Learn to code by making things you enjoy playing. Our award-winning block-based language was built from the ground up to be used on your touchscreen iOS device. With Hopscotch, you get a blank canvas for your imagination, a community filled with inspiration, and an audience to begin using your products the moment you publish them.

+ Beautiful and easy
Hopscotch was designed from the ground up for your device. We’ve fussed over every block, corner, and icon to make sure that the only thing you notice is what you’re creating.
+ Typing is overrated
Blocks are the favored way to learn to program from Harvard and MIT to Code.org and Google. Being able to type alert(‘Hello, World!’) is not the same as being able to code an app. Use blocks to learn coding logic and concepts before diving into the syntax of coding languages.
+ We know our stuff
Start your journey as a coder with our easy-to-follow tutorials. Immediately apply what you’ve learned to make your own art and games. We’ve taught millions of kids across the world to code, and bring the direct experience of educators from MIT, Princeton, Girls Who Code, and Xerox Parc.
+ Kids, programmers, parents, and teachers love coding on Hopscotch:
“Hopscotch is the best way to express my creativity.” — Nico, 13
“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
“My students love working on this app and being able to code has given them a much better understanding of how computers work. Hopscotch has demystified the tech in their lives. Now, they look at something on the computer and say “I could code that!”’ — Jesse, 5th grade teacher
“I'm 39 years old. It has been years since I did any programming, but I got into Hopscotch earlier this month after exploring it with my 12-year-old son... I'm now addicted and last night published my first game!” — Andrew, dad and former programmer
“Hopscotch is so much more than a kid's toy. It is a Turing-complete language and seamless programming environment for writing and prototyping real video games.” — Emily, pro game designer
“Stylistically it beats out everything else, and makes [competitors] look like a beta version from 1998.” — S., educator
We can’t wait to see what you create.

Videos Don't Match App
This 1 star app should be a 5 star app, but I've wasted many hours and days because the video tutorials tell me to select an item that is not in my app. Sometimes, after persistent trial and error, I discover a work-around, but not always. For instance, I've been working on fireworks for well over a week now. Toward the end of the tutorial, I am told to select something that simply doesn't exist, and I cannot figure out a currently working option. I've looked at another video tutorial online that looks official but is even worse. I even went so far as to delete the app, download it again, then try to start over. I reached the same road block. I was going to recommend this to some other people; I am NOT!
I hate only one thing😐
The one thing I hate THE MOST about this is now you have to pay for a membership? And you would think it's $2.00 per month when it's really $7.00! I thought Animal Jam was a ridiculous price, but now looking at it it's reasonable. Don't get me wrong I love the concept it's just the memberships are way over price. Maybe you could drop it down to $4? Just a suggestion.🙂
Nothing else like this on the iPhone. You can actually make playable games. Although there is a problem where you can't see the full app until after you do the first tutorial.
