“Hopscotch is the best way to express your imagination! Most other "learn to code" apps just make you complete boring levels with 4 "move" blocks, but in hopscotch you have the freedom to create anything, which is amazing.” — BuildASnowman, Hopscotcher

“This taught me sooooo much about basics of coding. I have been able to make some cool games I hope to learn more as I advance this app was extremely helpful and easy to learn.” — BestBeginnersCoding, Hopcotcher

“I had ZERO background or programming experience. I personally checked all 8 or 10 of these blogs about recommendations. And Hopscotch was the most intuitive and interactive. It’s not like you’re just playing video games. My daughter loves it!” — Mom, S. to daughter, 8

“I am a 4th grade teacher who LOVES your app. Our students have been introduced to coding through it and I am impressed with the creativity they have shown and the skills they are building while creating projects.” — Kelley, 4th grade teacher

Version History

Launched Apr 16, 2013 (about 6 years ago).

Releasing new versions every 15 days, on average.

May 31
2019
(Current)
Version 3.34.0

Earlier this year we released the width and height blocks, and you went nuts making incredible 3D simulations. With this release, your 3D projects will be better than ever. Read on to find out why:

New Features
- Never have your old project break again. The hopscotch player is versioned so you can be sure that your game will be pegged to the stable release you made it on.
- Your two-player games are getting an upgrade. Super-smooth multitouch brought to you by Nazari, Hopscotch's newest developer.
- The community is safer and more fun than ever. You can browse amazing projects made by hopscotchers in sixteen new curated channels.
- After seeing a lot of you try to edit your project and instead of pressing home and exiting it instead, we rearranged the buttons, so they live where you expect them. You're welcome!
- That handy about page we always ask you for when you write to us, is now a tiny bit easier to find.

Bug Fixes
- Now you can always switch accounts to use the account you subscribed from on iTunes.
- The shapes are more shapely and no longer have padding around them. This will make set width and height waaay easier to use. As a bonus, we also added a couple of new shapes.
- When you used the "set text" block, your objects would no longer resize correctly. Fixed!

Version 3.33.11

Some of you on iPhones have reported troubles with your subscription, this release should fix those issues and have you Hopscotchin' with ease.

Version 3.33.10

After watching so many of you try to drag from the keyboard, only to be stymied, we've finally added the ability to drag all blocks in the editor. Including parameters.

And some bug fixes:
- your objects were not staying in their places in the editor. Yikes! Folks, always remember to check the version you've uploaded or you could be in for some big trouble. Thank you tankt2016 and the rest of the Hopscotch forum for catching this one.
- the see code button was lost to the ages. JK now it's back. Thank you Rodrik834 for alerting us to this fact.

Version 3.33.9

1 + 0.1 - 1 == 0.1, right? Well, now it does! Rather than expose you to the quirks of binary floating point errors, we've decided that numbers in Hopscotch should behave the same as numbers in the real world.

Version 3.33.5

In old Hopscotch, for those of us who weren't teachers or parents, the path was unclear. In this version, we've improved the path so that teachers and students can find the right version of Hopscotch for them.

As always, send us an email at hello@gethopscotch.com with questions/comments/concerns. You just might appear in the next release notes!

Mar 11
2019
Version 3.33.4

Two new blocks: Minimum and Maximum. What are they for, you ask?
Use maximum to ensure a value never goes below zero when you are setting an object’s scale (so it doesn’t go upside down!). Use minimum if you want to make sure your object does not get too large for the screen. For example, you could use the minimum function to ensure that your object’s width is always less than the device’s width.

Version 3.33.0

Learn to code and make your own games with Hopscotch. Over 12 million downloads!
In this update:

It's wintertime and Hopscotch is ready. Create a winter wonderland with ELEVEN BRAND NEW winter characters. Including penguin, polar bear, sleigh, elf yeti and Gonzalo the snowman. This is big, folks.

And even more new goodies for you:
- A much requested feature: stretch and size your characters with perfect precision using the "set width and height" block.
- Making fast collisions will be much easier now that you can access the exact width and height of any given character. Find these in the object values section of the keyboard.
- By special request from ThinBuffaloSr: you can finally use >= and <= conditions in your code. If you don't know what that means, keep Hopscotchin' and you will soon!- For those of you lucky enough to get your hands on a new iPad pro, this version of Hopscotch takes full advantage of that beautiful edge-to-edge screen.
- No need to log in when you start Hopscotch for the first time, we'll make you a guest account til you're ready to sign up for the real thing.
- You recently got a cool new block: "when not pressed". With this release, you can long press it to learn more.
- If your device volume was muted, you couldn't hear sounds in a Hopscotch project. Now you can!
- It was really annoying if you dragged a character to the bottom center of the screen and it would cover up the plus button to add new characters. Now it'll sit behind the plus button where it belongs.

You've been telling us your notifications were janky, and we didn't quite get it. That was past Hopscotch's mistake. Today's Hopscotch has finally squashed that bug. Thank you William04Gamer for sticking with us here.

A couple other small improvements:
- It's a little easier to get help with your account. We've added more info to your about screen so you can recover old usernames.
- If you had canceled a free trial, it was possible to get into a state where you could never log out. Yikes! Aariv alerted us to this issue, and now it's fixed.

Version 3.31.3

In this update students and teachers alike will have reason to celebrate. You're getting nine free coding tutorials to get your class started on the right foot. And if that wasn't enough, read on for more features!

- When you start a new project, you'll notice a fresh new section of videos that will teach you the basics of coding. And you know it's legit cause the tutorials are all aligned with Apple's Everyone Can Code curriculum.
- Students and teachers were having trouble finding all the projects from their class. That's because they were really hidden. There's a new section called "My Class" in your profile so you can easily share games and code with your classmates.
- Several of you wrote to us that the parental gate wasn't working when you put in your birthday. We were trying to be clever and had two types of gate, that didn't work so we're going with simple. If you're over 13, just enter your birthday to share a Hopscotch project or email for help.
- And one bug fix: some projects were just hanging out forever with the loading bear. Whoops! Thanks TheCMStudios for catching that!

Version 3.30.2

Your gratitude for the bug fixes on the last release warmed our hearts—so much that we fixed a few more. Not only that, we added in a bonus feature--what could it be? Read on for more!

- Drumroll... You can use a new event: When *not* pressed. A lot of you have asked for this, some of you implemented your own version--we listened and it's finally here!
- Once you could copy custom abilities, you wondered why you couldn't copy custom rules as well. Now you can!
- It was hard to see the target when you tried to drag an object to delete it on the stage. The trash icon now grows when you're hovering over it.
- Speaking of trash cans, in the editor, sometimes you'd try to delete a block, and the icon wouldn't show up. What was with that? We didn't have an answer, so we made it show up every time.
- Another thing about deleting: when you dragged your block too close to the bottom deleting wouldn't work. That made no sense, so we stopped doing it.

Version 3.30.1

In the process of speeding up the editor, we made it too fast! Your drafts were playing at double time. Shout out to -Madi- and Poopie studios who helped us track this down.

---
The improvements in this release are small but mighty, just like you.

"I wish Hopscotch was slower", said no one ever. Faster is better and opening a draft should be a lot speedier now. Thank you for your patience, it won't be needed anymore.
Sometimes it's hard to tell your drafts apart. Your projects now have better default names based on the characters you used.
You can duplicate your abilities, once you've used this feature you'll be shocked that it didn't exist before!
You can now learn Hopscotch at the pace that's right for you. The video player has a button to adjust the speed.
Even better, you can easily navigate within the video with the spiffy new slider.
And, best of all: never lose your place! When you return to a video project, we'll remember where you left off and start playing from there.

Lastly, thank you to everyone who reported bugs, keep them coming! Here are some we've squashed:
Sometimes, if you opened a draft and pressed play too quickly, nothing would load. Yikes! That one's fixed.
When you tapped the terms of service while trying to subscribe, the parental gate stopped working preventing you from subscribing. No more!

Version 3.29.1

If you're using Hopscotch with a group of students, your life is about to get way better. You can now assign videos and track progress in Hopscotch using the Schoolwork app. Hallelujah!

This update will improve your Hopscotch experience in a few other ways:
- When you tried to delete a character in your project, it was really hard to tell if you were hovering over the trash. Now the trash icon will darken as you get closer, so you know when your object will be deleted.
- Some of you reported getting a message that your project needed a title when you tried to publish it, even though it clearly had a title! That one's fixed now.
- Those of you with a 10.5 inch iPad Pro may have noticed strange layouts and weirdly big text. Yikes, that was embarrassing. But, no more! Hopscotch is looking fresh, just for you.

If you're using Hopscotch at home, we haven't forgotten you either. Here's a couple goodies for you:
- Eagle-eyed Hopscotchers may have noticed that the cursor sometimes got stuck when coding complex equations. You'd scroll sideways but your textfield wouldn't move--so weird! Well no more. Now scrolling is smooth as butter.
- Speaking of smooth, you can now use your iCloud keychain to store your password. Never forget your login again! Just go to Accounts & Passwords in your Settings app and save your login for gethopscotch.com.

Version 3.27.6

When grownups take conference calls, they have to listen to terrible music while they wait for everyone to join. Someone had the good idea to instead create a fun song about “waiting for a conference call”. It was a good idea, but then you just have this song stuck in your head.

You told us that you were confused when you had to wait while Hopscotch created your account. We thought about using the conference call song to entertain you, but instead just created some new loading screens so you’d know what was going on. Hope you like them!

Let us know what you do and don’t like about Hopscotch! Maybe we will even write a song for you. Email us at hello@gethopscotch.com.

Hope you are enjoying your last days of summer! There’s a lot to get excited about with this update:
- Added pinch to zoom for the video tutorial player
- Fixed a thorny bug that was making Hopscotch laggy. If any of your drafts are laggy, open and close them. An hourglass will appear to let you know we’re cleaning the code, which will speed the project up. And any projects you make after installing this update will be free of this bug!
- Make more powerful projects more easily with Clone Index. When you clone an object, each clone gets an index, starting with 1. Use this variable to set up an army of clones. The Total Clones and Total Objects variables keep track of how many clones and objects you have (heads up: they include the original object you clone!).
- A few other bug fixes. Woo!

This update was crafted with lots of input from Hopscotchers—thank you! If you have questions or suggestions, please give us a shout: help@gethopscotch.com.

We’re throwing you some sugar: some tweaks that make it a lot harder to accidentally delete code. Now, just drag code down to the trashcan to delete. And unlike ice cream, this update won’t drip all down your arm.

We designed this new way of deleting with your feedback. We'd love to hear what you think! Write us at hello@gethopscotch.com.

Thinking of you,

- Drag characters from the keyboard onto the stage (the screen with a grid)
- Code in the editor is easier to read
- Scrolling and jumping between objects is now easier
-- Open and close blocks by tapping on the left side (being able to open/close anywhere was part of the reason everything lagged so much)
-- Drag blocks around by pressing the right side
- Improved the webplayer: embed your projects in your website, blog or a tweet!

We also added new math operators for tangent, inverse sine, inverse cosine and inverse tangent!

Version 3.2.1

~It’s back: Hopscotch on your iPad is in landscape and in portrait mode! Now with some extra bug fixes~

This updated editor is so fresh and so clean. We’ve redesigned it so that your code is easy to read and understand, and we’ve added new blocks so that you can make cooler stuff. Cha-ching.

Check this awesomeness:
- Video tutorials in our iPhone and iPad apps that help you learn how to make awesome games like Geometry Dash
- Say hello to Copy & Paste, and never write the same line of code 1000 times in pixel art again!
- Build more powerful projects with math operators like modulo and booleans for conditionals like “and” (finally!)

Much of this goodness was your idea—thank you! Keep ‘em coming: tell us what you think at hello@gethopscotch.com.
