    Ok this first sentence or 2 is of topic but I’ll just say it anyways. I REALLY CAN’t BELIEVE THE DEVELOPER WRITES A RESPONSE IF YOU KNOW********** Okay back on topic. These are not problems just ideas 💡. I was thinking 💭 maybe you could add more levels to Puppy Problems. When I saw there was no more to it I was melancholy😭. Well maybe I was being a little too dramatic. Okay you got me I didn’t cry at all I was just 😞. And an answer 🔑. But if you’re going to do that I think you should put it in the parents section if there even is one. Well I don’t know 🤷‍♀️ because I’m not a parent. SO NOTHING WRONG WITH IT, JUST 💡 s. Thank you 🙏 for taking your time to listen to my groaning

  • THIS GAME IS SO FUN!

    By Tata Talia
    This game is really good because it helps kids with their coding and many kids will have jobs in the future that don’t exist right now and I fell that coding will be part of a future job.
  • THE app to use for coding with littles

    5
    By Janstutz
    This is THE app to use for coding with littles. This has everything I was looking for in an app. I can check on student progress and assign individualized levels. Every student that has ever used the app LOVES it. With codeSpark Academy students that can't even read can still learn to code. The app features robust activities, very user friendly interface, and gets students excited about programming.
  • If you teaching how to code could you let kids make games

    By book reviewer 2pointo
    You should let them make their own games for free it will be fun or is it just I need to wait and complete the builder too? And also for kids that are 9 like me make harder levels theses are too easy so add some more free levels
  • Should be free

    I was billed after 3 days... I was supposed to have a free week of access. Complete Scam.

    This app is so great because students formulate the basic steps of algorithms to help them learn to code. The levels and stages are set up so well that the students in my kindergarten classes are using the terminology of what a loop is and can explain it through using the game. Thank you so much for providing these learning tools for me! They make a huge impact in the exposure I can give to students I teach!

  • Why code spark why?

    By Likikare
    Code spark has a one week "free" trial and if you don't remember it then you end up losing your money. If You do pay its ?$&@ing 8 dollars a month why? I think the schools should not have code spark it's a waste of money.I would rate 0 stars if I could

  • Awful

    By LanTok
    1. Can’t even look at it without giving your AppleID. 2. Not suitable for an adult who doesn’t already understand coding. I set it up for a four-year-old, and although I could place objects in the story and make them move, I didn’t get the point and would have been no use to my granddaughter. 3. Cancellation of subscription is not intuitive. CodeSpark did not respond to my email asking for help. Thank God Apple provides free support. I paid for a month I didn’t use but it could have been worse.
  • This game should be free.

    This game should be free. Why do we have to pay $7.99 a month to improve our kids education. My children are very upset that they can’t make their own video games.

  • Not free

    By ecwcparent
    Just to get started, they require your email address. Then it notifies you that your iTunes account will be AUTOMATICALLY charged after the seven day trial was over. “ cancel anytime”. Upon looking around, it says you can log in after payment is received, to cancel. That seems like they get paid either way. Just lock the app after 7 days. Don’t bill my account if a parent has a million things to do, instead of timer to decide if you like an app. Don’t market it as a free app. Deleted.
  • Why is this not free?

    By teeteeegee
    Mykid wants to learn how to code. This seems like a fun game . Please fix that. You’ll have to use CODING to do that. Also please let kids rome free,you don’t need a password . Please make a sendings where you can make a username and animated profile. Please fix the following information. Thank you .
  • I love this app!

    By Fgdsghbggg
    I love this app because you get to go to levels.and at the end when you get the star at the very last one then you get to create you’re very own app I think. and that is why I love this app I forgot what what it’s called.
  • I ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ this app

    By Jen levers
    I am having soooooooooooooooooo much fun with this app. The part that I ❤️ most is the one that u can make a story. I first found this app when I went to my first went to tech class at my school. MAKE MORE UPDATES!!!!!!!!!
  • I am a kid. I can’t pay for the app!!!

    By all4mig
    First of all don’t send me something to email you like your email and stuff cause I can’t email or go on a lot of sights. They are blocked cause I am only ten. What I want to say is that if you don’t remove the having to pay per month thing I am going to delete the app. Can you make it so kids can sign up with like a made up user name and password. My parents won’t let me pay for a app that when I got it was free and you did not have to be a member to play!!! Fix this and I will be happy. -unhappy customer
  • Can’t cancel

    By FingExhausted
    I’m trying to cancel my subscription since my son no longer uses the app, but it keeps saying my password is invalid. Click “forgot password,” link is emailed to me, reset the password, go to login with new password and am still told my password is incorrect. So what now? I get charged indefinitely for an app my kid doesn’t use, or I contact my credit card and report the next charge as fraudulent?

  • My favorite coding app for k-3

    5
    By Beckymmcdowell
    I use this app with my k-2 students and often have my third graders requesting it as well. The on-screen prompting without the need for reading allows my young learners to succeed with coding even before they can read. I love the new storytelling feature too! My favorite mini-game is the crocodile catch one with the greater than and less than equations. Just awesome!
  • Can’t Cancel

    By yuuuuuuuuppp
    I signed up for a “free trial” which i then canceled as my daughter did not enjoy the game enough for the $7.99 monthly fee. I canceled through Apple and i sent codeSpark an email almost a year ago and have recently discovered that even though they acknowledged my cancellation request my account was never canceled and they’ve since charge me 11 monthly payments on account that shows expired in my records. Disgusting!! I’ve sent a couple of emails to support and have had no feedback!! Run for your life and don’t sign up for anything with this rip off of an app!!!
