Hopscotch: Coding for Kids

Review Excerpt: We’ve been asking for it; and somebody finally delivered … a Scratch-like programming experience on the iPad. But let’s be clear — Hopscotch isn’t a replacement for Scratch; instead it’s a great introduction to the concept of programming with drag and drop commands. Hopscotch is also missing some things Scratch has, namely a huge library of projects, the ability to make stages, and more creative possibilities. But, you can’t use Scratch on an iPad. Hopscotch takes programming down to the most simple level, letting children build programs using building block commands. You can make a character move, draw, and collide with another, or sense motion when you tilt the screen or sound when you talk into the microphone.
