Description

“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

What’s New

Version 3.37.4

A small bugfix: your deleted images were still invisibly adding to the file size of your projects. Now deleting a drawing will get rid of it for real.

If you haven’t tried the beta editor yet, what are you waiting for? Subscribe now to see the latest and greatest features and participate in shaping the future of Hopscotch.

New features in the beta editor make the visuals oh so nice and shiny.
- Your characters can be any size you want! Pinch to resize then press play to see them in all their glory.
- If you were getting confused about which scene was which, you’ll be pleased about this new feature. Scenes now have screenshots so you can tell easily them apart.
- Programmatically place your objects right next to each other using the origin blocks. Now you can find the bottom left corner of any object, in addition to getting its center.

For everyone else, sit tight. Once the beta features have been thoroughly vetted we’ll release them to the rest of you!

Editors' Notes

“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!
