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 ∞.

AMAZING APP!!!!!!!!!!! Just a few tips
OMG you don't know how much I just adore this app. I mean like there's nothing like it. How did you guys do this. Me, being able to make my own game AWESOMENESS!!!!!!! It is a little hard, but once you get the hang of everything you'll be able to make any type of game all ON YOUR OWN!!!!!! Squeee! THANK YOU soooooo much for the videos. Those things are extremely helpful. But, speaking of videos there is something that to me, is a bit frustrating. And I can't figure it out on my own. So like yesterday I was learning to make flappy bird, but then when I had died y'all didn't show us how to make it come back, but you could make it come back. And also I haven't been playing hopscotch for a really long time but I can tell you one thing. All the videos you make should really have detailed instructions. I told my friends about this app and 1 of them deleted cause it was complicated. Also you should show us in some of the videos where you can score points you should show us how to do that to. Because it can be really hard.
Other than that this app is amazing! I will keep hopscothing and make more games, stories, music, and MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄
Hopscotch I found a major flaw in the app. If you download the app, like a post and delete the app and then redownload it and continue these steps like a 100 times then you can easily get a bunch of likes on a post!!😅
There should be another word for what this is. It's not an "app". It's a way of life. I'm literally a different person now. I've wasted enough time already writing this review, I need to get back to Hopscotch.
