    So far the app has been pretty good. It does occasionally crash for no reason but that’s been a minor issue. I do wish there was some sort of explanation of the various pieces you can “buy” with the coins you earn in-game, as it is sometimes confusing what they are. Even a single explanatory word above each menu would not be out of place, and you could still keep the picture icons for the kids who can’t read yet.

    As of the year of the pig update all ramps cannot be moved or coded in the level maker. And, while playing any game, the player cannot make contact with ramps. Instead of touching the ramps, the foo passes through them like a ghost. Please fix so I can fully enjoy the foos again

    I’m a teacher and this is truly the best coding app out there. It’s engaging, student friendly, with a range of difficulty from simple sequencing to full game development. My students love CodeSpark!
  • Great App for teaching coding!

    I love this App!! I’m using codeSpark to teach coding to my early grade students and they love it!! I love that the app can be used on iPad 2 as those are the only iPads we have. It’s very simple to set it up and the students love getting on the app.
  • Colorful and Engaging!

    My K-1 students and I love learning to code using the Foos! They love solving the coding puzzles and meeting new Foos as they move to new levels! We were very excited to see the full web version offered to schools and that it was free to educators! This program is fantastic!

  • Have Fun and Code

    A fellow teacher invited me to signup for the free pd that codeSpark was offering. I’m glad I did, I learned a lot. Most importantly, I introduced my students to the app and they love it! They are learning how to code and having fun at the same time. I like the app because it’s simple enough for my 1st graders to use it and challenging enough to keep me engaged.
