I was so excited I got a book about coding and I needed scratch. I know my computer wouldn’t download. It’s slow and stuff, and I thought by the looks of the pictures, the stars, and it said “scratch” that is was the wright thing to make you one game but no! I should have looked at the reviews!!!!!! Lesson learned for me. So I’m trying to warn you before you spend .99 on this app DON’T FALL FOR IT!
(Why can’t you get a refund for deleting apps that cost money???) 😭

Very nice organization of blocks

It wouldn't open after the update but then after I deleted some stuff then it opened. I guess it needs a certain amount of room to be able to open.

Its scam, phony app!

This is a fraud! It appears that its a Scratch app but its just a documentation. It’s wisely written to misguide user that its actual app. Bad way to make money! Its not by MIT guys. These people are making money using their names. I want my money back.
