How I Use It
I tried this with a group of students when considering what app we would use to introduce coding to the classroom. This didn't make the cut- because my class wanted something more advanced. We settled on Codea, which is a little more like actual coding. There is nothing wrong with this app- it's a good coding app that is cute and simple, my high school class just wanted something more.
My Take
I would recommend this to anyone looking to interest students in middle school or elementary school in coding. It's not quite a high school level application.
