    My kids really like this app. That doesn’t mean they do much coding on there. The best game they had on the app was just temporary for winter. The other big issue at my house is how easy it is to delete a profile, accidentally or otherwise. Including deleting someone else’s profile. So there is a potential for conflict if you have multiple kids.
