I looked around but was unable to find a Scratch app for the iPad. Does anyone know if there is one in the works?
looking forward it the ipad app, i have 30 new ipads but i am working on 23 very old ibooks.
thanks for the update
Hurrah! I'm very excited to hear that work will be under way for iPad dvelopment. Thanks!!!
Scratch on the iPad! I'm so glad to hear this is in the plans. Thank you!
Let me caution people not too expect too much. The iPad version of Scratch will be limited by both the hardware and by Apple's policies. It may not support all the features of Scratch 2.0, some projects may run slowly, and, due to Apple's policies, it might not be allowed to download and run projects from the Scratch website.
There are two basic approaches to iPad Scratch (HTML5 vs. native iPad App), and each approach has strenghts and weaknesses. We will explore both approaches. However, as Karen wrote, our hightest priority at the moment is to release Scratch 2.0.
Nevertheless, I do agree with general feeling that, even with some limitiations, Scratch on the iPad would be lovely.
P.S. Scratch 2.0 will run on Flash-enabled Android tablets, although there may be some issues due to the lack of a keyboard.
Thanks very much for your offer. Most Scratch development is done by the team here at MIT. But as we move forward with a version of Scratch for tablets, we might be looking for help with some aspects of the project. We'll keep you in mind as the project progresses.
Love this news! Thanks so much for your effort!
Fantastic news! Are you looking for any coding help from open source contributors? I am an experienced iOS and Android developer...
Thank you so much for the offer! I've forwarded your note to those working on development.
After the MIT Scratch Team launches Scratch 2.0 (later this year), we plan to work on a version of Scratch for the iPad and other tablets.
Hope that helps,
How do I do that? What do you think? With discussions, you can share your questions, suggestions, and insights with others.
