Perfect for beginners!

I wanted to learn coding during my commute. But so many free to start apps require a constant Internet connection, and my train is often stuck underground without service. I greatly appreciate that you can use Encode even offline. (It being offline also means that it can't load the ads, if you find that annoying.)

The lessons included are indeed simple, and I absolutely think if you're an intermediate study in JavaScript or HTML/CSS you won't get much out of this. But as a beginner cramming these lessons in to/from work, who was only ever able to make good old 90's GeoCities webpages at best, the bite-sized chunks it's broken down into makes computing language much easier for to process.

The extra challenges as reinforcement and the compound lessons putting everything together is worth the $4.99 unlock, but even if you're looking to just start learning for free you could do much worse than Encode.

Love the fun vibes and pacing!

I typically have a hard time sitting down and teaching myself, but this app feels so engaging to me. It splits up the lessons into chapters which gives me a goal to reach within day or even a week if I’m really busy. And the actual lessons themselves keeps my habit of not being able to focus in check. It reinforces previous lessons in each lesson as kind of like a recap which I most definitely need after I miss a few days. And the ability to practice what I learn to make sure I know how to put my knowledge to the test is amazing. Thank you for making an app that works for me!

Good for learning, but wished that the Hands-On was there again

So I learned all my basics for HTML and CSS through Encode (the previous name before Knowin) and I have to say I loved the interactive, hands-on, you-type-it mode that It had. But don’t get me wrong, this app is still very good at teaching the basics for coding in any of its available subjects. But just as someone who still remembers the very interactive mode of Encode, I do miss it. Personally it was better for me to type it out than to press buttons to questions. So if its possible to bring this back into Knowin, that would be awesome. Like I said awesome app that can teach you so much, I would just like to see that type-it-yourself mode back. But overall, it is a very solid app, good job developers!
