“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

What’s New

Version 3.33.10

After watching so many of you try to drag from the keyboard, only to be stymied, we've finally added the ability to drag all blocks in the editor. Including parameters.

And some bug fixes:
- your objects were not staying in their places in the editor. Yikes! Folks, always remember to check the version you've uploaded or you could be in for some big trouble. Thank you tankt2016 and the rest of the Hopscotch forum for catching this one.
- the see code button was lost to the ages. JK now it's back. Thank you Rodrik834 for alerting us to this fact.

As always, shoot us an email at hello@gethopscotch.com with any questions/comments/suggestions. You might show up in the next release 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!

Really it's not ,

Its the best app ive ever used, but....

This is definitely not an issue for many people but for some reason i thought i should mention it, why can’t premium subscribers record/upload their own sound? I understand that a ton of people would most likely abuse the feature, but if you're willing enough to pay 90 dollars a year for adding your own images, and more lessons and literally nothing else, you definitely like hopscotch so you aren't gonna abuse this feature that often, and even if you do its not too hard to make a bot that reviews it, i can give a few examples of platforms that have something like this whether coding related or not. #1 your biggest competitor who may i mention is now on mobile aka scratch. #2 Roblox. #3 Scratch Jr. #4 Discord, you may wonder why this is one here, but if you threaten somebody and do anything like that, you’re getting banned off the app. Thats all i can think of right now im too lazy to do much more.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for following up with this important question: recording sounds! We totally agree that this would be super helpful. I can only imagine all wonderful sounds people would create. Hopefully we can offer this to you someday, but it's not on our immediate roadmap. Among other reasons, we'd have to make sure that all the sounds were safe, which is a huge undertaking! Thanks again for your feedback and support—means a lot to us! Ana

Great App

This is an amazing app and I am learning a lot from it. If you in anyway hesitant about downloading it.... DON’T BE! If you wanna make games and have fun while coding. This is the app for you!!!!! This is especially great for kids because some games that involve learning bore kids, even if they DO want to learn. But this app lets kids learn so much and still have fun. There is a woman who guides you through each already made game. And then once you have gotten the hang of it you have the choice to go on your own and make your own games from scratch. I love this app, if you are interested tap that install button. There is nothing to lose! If you don’t feel comfortable or don’t feel like this is your vibe, you can always delete the app(which I doubt you would want to do). But overall this is an amazing. I totally recommend it!
