    My son loves your app. He’d thought he’d write a review. But his title was “This is sponsored by code spark” he thought he had to write that...lol... other than that he meant to say he LOVES it. Thank you for responding so nicely to his review!!!!

    Once you stop paying all your kid’s work is removed. My kid’s time and effort is worth saving but this app’s developers think you should have to pay forever just to see your kid’s creations.
  • Why pay?

    I’m only 11 and I use Ready Maker and some times Unity 3D, but I saw an ad of this app and downloaded it. When I opened the app I saw you had to pay. I took it.

    I love this game! Ever since my 2nd grade teacher introduced us to it, I didn’t just play it at school, I played it at home! There’s a problem though. Why do you have to sign up for something just to have all the levels and features? I really want to play all the things in the app, so can you take away the signing up part and let everyone play everything in the game so we can all be happy? That would be great.
  • It’s not really coding but I still love it

    This game is so fun you make your own game or story and play with pets and sort candy but I don’t like the money. You only have 7 days to play it then pay 9.99. For a month and 79.99 a year.

    My children say that The Foos is THE BEST coding app ever made in the universe and it makes my children so happy, they say it couldn’t have been this much fun without all the other kids out there who create some of the media and especially Splash Clash, my kids say that without Splash Clash, codeSpark would almost be dumb and I hope that codSpark will last forever and ever!
