“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

Hopscotchers, this is a big one: you can now use parameters in your custom rules and custom abilities! Now you can write the code once and use it all over your project with slight differences.
Open a new project and start playing with the refreshed starter rules to see parameters in action. The symmetrical mirror drawing and the two-colored gradient background are the Hopscotch team favorites so far. Lastly--open up the new rules to learn more about how they work. There are comments to explain what’s going on!
And as if that wasn’t enough: clones have gotten a total refresh! Instead of cloning an object in its original state, the clone will pick up the properties of that object at that moment. To learn more about clones, watch the brand new clone tutorial series in the video section of the app.
And lastly, for the advanced users, we’ve fixed some bugs in the execution order of code. Now you can use a set variable block right before an if statement, no problemo.
Other bug fixes:
The prompt block will work with local variables.
Comment blocks show more text.
Copying a rule or object now copies the set variable blocks too.
We love to hear from you! Send feedback to email@example.com.
Ratings and Reviews
“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 colourful, 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!
I had this app a few years ago on my old phone, its nice to get back to it.
But i cant change my username.
Developer Response ,
Welcome back! You can change your username by pressing down on it in your "Me" tab! When it starts to wiggle, you can change it to whatever you want. Let me know if you need more help. Ana
Why do you have to freaking sign up or whatever??? So stupid!
