Likes it, just needs recommendations

I tried unliking a project, that didn’t work! You should remove the projects that say “This project contains features which aren’t supported by the version of the app.” so people don’t get confused. I accidentally liked one. So there’s this user called Stella, and almost all of their posts are taken down! I am not very happy because of the community! This app needs recommendations! Oh! There is a kinda good coder here called Purple Cheeto and I like almost all of their projects!
And when I search “learn” I only see projects that have “Baldi” and I do not know that! Okay, I recommend Kodable. Because you make you own little mazes. And the “set easing to” block is too hard! This app is too hard, but I like it (Not too much).

Hi Chloe! I've made a note of your suggestions, and forwarded the things you noticed regarding searching and unliking projects to our developers. Thanks so much for your feedback, and for making cool projects using Tynker! -Allison

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.

Good overall, but toxic community and unreasonable declination

This app inspires me to my dreams, which makes me want to be a software developer, it is my right level, but there are major things that make Tynker not so perfect anymore.. Tynker has a community where you can publish your projects, but Tynkerers are being really toxic and starting drama. Tynker is a coding app, not a social media platform! Please upgrade your declination system. But Tynker goes way to far on declination. Tynker declines projects for no reason. One time, they declines me with no provided reason. They declined someone for putting a bible quote! Tynker plays favoritism. Tynker lets unpopular people post projects with bad words that stick out. Tynker is a challenging app that I would try to consider, but not on the spot. Tynker is also unreasonably declining projects, like N00bcatt, I was really upset about that. Please restore those projects, I am begging you. Tynker isn’t really a nice coding app, but some breaking rules would supposedly get through the moderation. (THAT IS TRUE.) My user is named CL, and I will help you, N00bcatt <3 I would prefer Scratch over Tynker, but I like the easing blocks.

Developer Response ,

Hi, and thanks for your review, and for being a fan of Tynker! We really appreciate your detailed feedback. Because we support a wide range of ages on our platform, we take our community guidelines very seriously. If you do see any projects with inappropriate content or language that have slipped past our moderation, we encourage you to use the report feature. And if you have a project that you feel was incorrectly declined, please do send us an email at support@tynker.com and we'd be happy to review it for you. -Allison
