“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 3.34.0

Earlier this year we released the width and height blocks, and you went nuts making incredible 3D simulations. With this release, your 3D projects will be better than ever. Read on to find out why:

New Features
- Never have your old project break again. The hopscotch player is versioned so you can be sure that your game will be pegged to the stable release you made it on.
- Your two-player games are getting an upgrade. Super-smooth multitouch brought to you by Nazari, Hopscotch's newest developer.
- The community is safer and more fun than ever. You can browse amazing projects made by hopscotchers in sixteen new curated channels.
- After seeing a lot of you try to edit your project and instead of pressing home and exiting it instead, we rearranged the buttons, so they live where you expect them. You're welcome!
- That handy about page we always ask you for when you write to us, is now a tiny bit easier to find.

Bug Fixes
- Now you can always switch accounts to use the account you subscribed from on iTunes.
- The shapes are more shapely and no longer have padding around them. This will make set width and height waaay easier to use. As a bonus, we also added a couple of new shapes.
- When you used the "set text" block, your objects would no longer resize correctly. Fixed!

As always, shoot us an email at with any questions/comments/suggestions. You might show up in the next release 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!

Really it's not ,

Its the best app ive ever used, but....

This is definitely not an issue for many people but for some reason i thought i should mention it, why can’t premium subscribers record/upload their own sound? I understand that a ton of people would most likely abuse the feature, but if you're willing enough to pay 90 dollars a year for adding your own images, and more lessons and literally nothing else, you definitely like hopscotch so you aren't gonna abuse this feature that often, and even if you do its not too hard to make a bot that reviews it, i can give a few examples of platforms that have something like this whether coding related or not. #1 your biggest competitor who may i mention is now on mobile aka scratch. #2 Roblox. #3 Scratch Jr. #4 Discord, you may wonder why this is one here, but if you threaten somebody and do anything like that, you’re getting banned off the app. Thats all i can think of right now im too lazy to do much more.

Thanks for following up with this important question: recording sounds! We totally agree that this would be super helpful. I can only imagine all wonderful sounds people would create. Hopefully we can offer this to you someday, but it's not on our immediate roadmap. Among other reasons, we'd have to make sure that all the sounds were safe, which is a huge undertaking! Thanks again for your feedback and support—means a lot to us! Ana

A very good app, but I miss the old days

I know this is a great app and I have many old memories, ranging from when I created a melody that sounded like Bank Account before the song came out to making and looking at some of the cool projects from the community. I can remember this app vividly, and confirm it was a great app. However, I wish this app was still free, because it is great and everybody should get a chance to experience it. But I understand that the greatest things come at a price, so I still give it a perfect 5 star rating. I am lucky I had an old account and could get it back for free. My current thoughts on the app are that it is doing well, and has no actual competition, because Scratch has never actually received a mobile app, and all the other coding apps give no actual codes to kids, and just let you make characters “Walk” or “Jump”. Thank you for making the greatest mobile app, maybe of all time!!!

Welcome back! Thanks for getting in touch. Can't wait to see more of the great games you make. As for the subscription -- this is a tough one. It’s super important to us that Hopscotch is available to as many kids as possible in a free version for people who aren’t able to subscribe. However, we also need to balance this with having a premium edition that allows us to pay the bills, along with paying for us to be able to develop the next level of Hopscotch features. Ana
