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!

“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!

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

Somewhat disappointed...

I’m a bit conflicted about Hopscotch. I do have fond memories spending hours coding and making games, but I don’t really like how it is now. The “Newest” tab isn’t the way it used to be. It only shows select things and that makes me wonder how smaller game makers are supposed to get noticed? I have been featured a few times now, but when I was first starting out it made me really happy to just have one person like it. I really liked Hopscotch, but I just wish that the tabs could go back to the way they used to be. The chance that my project might never be seen doesn’t make me feel motivated enough to start coding. I am also disappointed that you have to sign up for a free trial, or as a student or teacher. This new way of signing up for the app is really confusing, and my friend just decided not to get it. I think that the app should just start off being free, and if the user really wants the premium features they could choose to subscribe.

Edit: So I have been on Hopscotch some more and I now really miss old hopscotch. The new tabs are terrible. They make me physically nauseous. Only the projects that already get likes will ever be seen. It seems almost impossible to get featured. Why do I even try.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, thank you for your feedback. We changed the tabs because we created Hopscotch so kids can learn how to code, not to compete with each other for likes. This is an educational app, and the new channels reflect what's possible to create with Hopscotch. You and your followers can always see your published projects on your home page. You can also share your games through a link with your family and friends. Also, it’s super important to us that we’re giving as many kids as possible the ability to learn to code - part of this is allowing people to use the free version, but another part is earning the money that pays our bills and allows us to add the next set of amazing features which will allow even more kids to benefit.  Our subscriptions are currently the best way to do this. We hope you keep on Hopscotching!
