Brilliant app for coding intro.

This is a great concept and execution of a system to teach fundamentals of logic and instruction to all ages. My 3-yr old is fascinated, and her parents are having fun too. We just bought the bundle so the two paid apps after trying this one. Children are capable of symbol and pattern construction long before they can manipulate any specific language system and this simple system takes that idea and runs with it to some complex teaching.

The only thing not "perfect", and I hope I can offer this as a constructive criticism, is the UI layout in some small ways. My daughter sometimes cannot clearly recognize when a chosen operation has been placed in her program. An animation to show the instruction moving to its place in the code could help. Also, it is not always obvious to a kid that the program, when running, has carried out two separate instructions, as the little bot moves quickly through its track. Slowing it a bit, or having a speed of execution control, could better show distinct operations, like "jump" and "light up" as two instructions.

Overall, though, thanks for an awesome app and learning tool.
