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 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.
After this app made the switch from Encode to Knowin, I had my doubts, but the interface itself is beautiful and intuitive, plus the themes (plum, sea, and night) are gorgeous. The ghost of Encode still haunts the app when it opens, and sometimes the swipes lag a little, but that’s to be expected with such a massive overhaul & turnaround for an education app. Not nearly enough to warrant taking off a star, especially when the app itself is supplementing my coding journey so well. Thanks for a great and affordable learning experience!
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!
