All kinds of people love Hopscotch: kids, programmers, parents, and teachers.
+ 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
+ Hopscotchers can truly code their OWN stories by using their own art and images! They can make games that are meaningful to themselves and their peers. -- David, 5th grade teacher
+ I'm not your target audience, as I'm 39 years old and a university senior manager in the UK. 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
+ 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
+ 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
We can’t wait to see what you create.

What's New in Version 3.4.2
This update fixes an issue affecting iPhone users on iOS 10.
Many of the latest improvements were suggested by you — thanks! Here are the highlights:
- You can now see the code for one object at time. Just tap the eye in the top right corner to switch between viewing all objects and focusing on one object.
- You can select, copy and paste blocks by tapping twice.
- All the buttons have been updated and are easier to see.
And we fixed a bunch of bugs!
The best programming app on iOS for youth and children!
I have used this app at my programming school for 2 years now. The developers keep improving it every update. It runs smoothly on iPad unlike other alternatives that run in the safari browser.
It allows the students to share with each other easily and privately, and they can also publish to web to show off their latest projects to their parents.
It also 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.
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.
No more crashing!
My app was crashing because of the iOS 10 update 2 days ago, but this new update fixed it! Thanks for being so quick and responsive, THT!
Great For Beginners
The only problem that I've found is the activity section doesn't quite work properly. It shows most of the activity but it doesn't show all activities. Overall Great Game!!
