What is Tynker?
Tynker is a complete learning system for kids to learn to code. Kids begin experimenting with visual blocks, then progress to JavaScript, Swift, and Python as they design games, build apps, and make incredible projects.

Computer programming is a 21st century skill that kids can start learning at any age. While coding with Tynker, kids apply critical thinking, pattern recognition, focus, problem solving, debugging, resilience, sequencing, spatial visualization, and algorithmic thinking. The Tynker visual language makes it easy for them to learn and apply concepts like conditional logic, repetition, variables, and functions – the same coding concepts as any mainstream programming language.

dddddoooooooooiggggg ,


Tynker is a wonderful game that guides you through the basics of coding. Although you are asked to pay to get more coding lessons you can still learn without paying. You make games using coding and publish them for others to see If your new I suggest try playing flappy bird.

Very Good but....

Tynker is by far the easiest to use texture pack maker I could find of the App Store. But it’s limited in its items. I would like to see all the items added and the new texture packs. Updating to 1.16 or the latest version. For instance tynker forced me to go to nova skin so I could make a armour texture pack. I have waited and owned this app of my old now dead iPad for almost 3 years now and hasn’t had a content update for Minecraft. The coding system is not the most hands on. I really think the main reason people download this app is for Minecraft. So getting in 1.16 at least would be good and if you can’t do that at least 1.15. For instance The item Ruby is no longer in Minecraft. It would be a positive way to improve the game. The item free hand for the bedrock edition parts can not erase the original design. For instance the Java editing is hard to use but you can erase the original design but bedrock is easy to use but you can not erase the original design. I brought premium and the learning coarses and good but the could be better. For instance to copping out of a zombie villager wearwolf. It’s simply said. There are mainly versions of the zombie village so don’t forget to could in the rest. Nobody has time for that. Knowing that there is not much of a chance that anyone will see this I just hope that it will get the update I’ve waited to long for. Thanks -Park Jimin

Good app but...

Hey, I like all you can do on this app, with Addons and stuff, I use it to customise all my stuff on minecraft. But just like you would normally do, there is only the minimum on Addons. For example, with the snowman trading post, you can only trade items with items, not blocks, and you can’t do double items for one item. I’d like to have a way of turning leather horse armour with one diamond into diamond horse armour, and I want to be able to trade items for enchanted items.

Another thing: you CANT CUSTOMISE ARMOUR
I’d love to be able to do this, because I want it to match my ‘ender sword’ that I made. You also can’t customise stuff like, for example, I customise a pumpkin head, and a snowman, yet the customised pumpkin head doesn’t appear customised on my snowman. Small things like these I need help with.

Even though this app and the website has its faults, I enjoy it overall. If I need to customise an object or item, I go here*. I make all my skins here too. Thanks for making this app, but please update it more regularly. Thanks!

*(With the customising, I can only change what the mod looks like, rather than giving it a whole new 3D shape. And I want to be able to have a library of parts, maybe from different mobs or something, to access to add on to my addon.)
