Disable Free Drive Mode?
We love the Sphero Edu app and the ability to help kids understand the basics of coding!
The only problem we have is that kids will often get sidetracked once they find out how to just drive the sphero around like an RC car. Is there any way to disable this feature? That’d be really helpful. If there isn’t a way to currently do this it’d be something nice to see in future updates!!

Greetings - Thanks for your message. There is not currently a way to disable to drive feature in the Sphero Edu app -- but we will most certainly pass along your feedback. Glad to hear your students are using Sphero Edu to learn some basics of coding! Please email us, firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions. Thanks very much!
Pretty cool 😎
🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄 Ok let’s get started:
First, I would like to know if there is any way to block people. I was scrolling through the programs people posted and saw something very very disturbingly creepy (I can’t unsee it now) that somebody decided to use as the pic they posted the program with. Kids my age shouldn’t have to see what I saw, that was too much for me to handle. If there is already a way to block people, I probably haven’t been looking hard enough, lol 😂
Also, I think that we should be able to do more stuff besides make programs if you don’t have a public account. It would be nice if there was a little guide that told you what each block does—e.g. explain how they work. I’m a first time programmer so I don’t know what “create a variable” and “true && true” means. Thx!
Overall this is pretty fun. But since I don’t know what most of the blocks do—except for “move” and “speak”, ha ha—it’s gotten hard to create most programs. Thanks for understanding!

Greetings -- Can you email email@example.com with the URL in question -- We will investigate and appreciate you bringing this to our attention!
Great app even for non programers. Just add microphone option
Great app. There are a a bunch of programs from the sphero community and I was even able to create my own through simple dragging and dropping some blocks. i am not a programmer but I could learn to use it without trouble.
I love that I can set how my sphero moves, make sounds and speak. The sound library is good but I wish I could add my own sounds. Is it possible to enable the app to use a microphone so i could record my own sounds? Or at least include one from my ipad library? These would be a simple but great functionality to add in a future update.
