Great in the classroom
I volunteer in my 1st and 3rd graders classrooms once a week teaching computer programming and this app is wonderful. The best part of it, compared to other apps/websites, is that it encourages testing because it doesn't frown or tell you are wrong when you run an incomplete program. I was impressed that the 1st graders were able to work through all the puzzles up until loops (still not sure if teaching loops as recursion is the most applicable and/or ideal).
The other nice thing is that it is easy to use in the classroom where kids just grab a random ipad because there are unlocked puzzles at each level group, so they can mostly remember where they were and pick up from there and you don't have to fuss with logins, passwords, saving, etc.
