What is Tynker?
Tynker is a complete learning system for kids to learn to code. Kids begin experimenting with visual blocks, then progress to JavaScript, Swift, and Python as they design games, build apps, and make incredible projects.

Computer programming is a 21st century skill that kids can start learning at any age. While coding with Tynker, kids apply critical thinking, pattern recognition, focus, problem solving, debugging, resilience, sequencing, spatial visualization, and algorithmic thinking. The Tynker visual language makes it easy for them to learn and apply concepts like conditional logic, repetition, variables, and functions – the same coding concepts as any mainstream programming language.

Wow amazing!

This app is great for kids and very educational for coding. There is difficulty, but every time I mess up the app helps me. I have 3 favorites: the Barbie coding, the dragon coding, and the astronaut coding. I am 10 years old, and am going into 5th grade. I know this will give me some idea of how my year will go, since I can now figure out my problems. This was, and still is very educational, and I would recommend this too any young mind wanting to learn and study coding.

For the company who made and coded this app, I would like for you to know, that I am very grateful that you put this app into the world.

Thanks! And stay healthy.

Tynker is good but theres a big problem (Pay attention!)

dear tynker! There is a lot of big problems! 1 The money that we have to pay to upgrade is too much money! 2 There are hackers messing with our projects and the community does not pay attention so can the whole company pay attention to the people who's hacking! 3 There is some people reporting other projects for no reason! 4 There is some people putting inappropriate stuff on there! 5 The Minecraft projects does not work because when you send your Minecraft character and make it act like a other character to the world it does not look right. 6 The hackers are also messing with the moderation so pay attention to the moderation too! 7 Importing sounds does not work on my iPad because i cant even put it on the project! 8 Sometimes it cant pull up images i want it to pull up. 9 some of the drawings disappear for no reason. 10 Sometimes people cant handle the signs. 11 It is kinda too glitchy. 12 Some of the projects take too much long loading and that needs to be fixed too! 13 You have not update any parts and your app is getting old and you need to update it so we don't have those glitches and problems. the good news is that there is some stuff fixed by the community and tynker so keep an eye on all hackers and security so the app does not get too much glitchy! Thank you for reading this message and I'll try to find more glitches and report them to you! Keep an eye on anyone who is being mean to other people!

Read this before you download!

I'm a really great coder and stuff. But, there are a few things I hate about it! One: my projects are now taking for ever to be reviewed! What is up with that! It's been taking MONTHS for my good quality projects to come in! Two: I posted a game on my laptop which would've gotten featured. But no. Instead it got rejected! There are vampires, and the mention of blood. But no violence or anything bad! And further more, I saw it got rejected on the TYNKER APP! I was using my laptop. Plus, there were no rules against my game. This proves my point that Tynker is treating their viewers like babies! On Scratch, everyone would’ve loved it! Three: make the site a bit more for older kids! I mean, why do you even have a monster for a mascot! Adding to this review, a lot of the games here (excuse my French) ARE GARBAGE! I also use scratch, so I know the huge difference between Tynker and Scratch. On scratch, most of the community projects are more advanced and fun to play! Most of the games I see on Tynker are…Not that good. So in conclusion, this is NOT worth your money! You can easily get on a better coding platform for free! But you choose to go here. Dat is all. 💄❤️ ouuuuutttt.
