“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 3.41.6

Have you ever wanted to build a chatbot? Well, you're in luck - because now you can code with text strings in Hopscotch!

Subscribers with the beta editor turned ON can now use text as values in addition to numbers. Now, you'll be able to switch to the letters keyboard when working with variables and conditionals. You'll also see some brand new blocks:

- "Matches": takes 2 numbers or texts and treats them as strings, testing whether they match
- "(Self) Text": gets the text of your object
- "Save Input": will prompt the user for a text input, and then save it as a variable
- "Broadcast Message": will broadcast a message you define to the other objects in your game
- "When I Hear": will execute when the object "hears" a broadcasted message

You'll be able to build everything from a chatbot that can have conversations with your players to choose-your-own-adventure games!

Please note this feature is currently only available to subscribers with the beta editor turned ON.

Bug fixes in this release include:
- When you delete a variable using the “clear” or “X” buttons you’ll no longer see the word “clear” in your text field. (Cause that was pretty weird.)
- Stopped phantom images from reappearing after you’d already deleted them from your project.

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 colorful, 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!
