Safety starts with understanding how developers collect and share your data. Data privacy and security practices may vary based on your use, region, and age. The developer provided this information and may update it over time.
Update: after several days, I was contacted and the bug was fixed. My child loves the app. It's educational, challenging, and fun. So I decided to purchase a year subscription. Well, I've been charged, but their app will not process the code I bought off of their website. I emailed them multiple times, different days for a week. I still can't get in and I paid for it! Very poor customer and IT service. I recommend the free trail and nothing else.

Free trial has a trap that you have to remember to cancel before the end of the trial or you automatically get charged $79. I'm sorry but that is a shady way of doing a free trial especially when it costs so much for an app. Vendor reply misses the point of the complaint. It isn't the cost that is at issue. What is at issue is the way the free trial is implemented. You have to remember to cancel before the end of free trial if you don't like/use the app. This is good for their revenue but bad for consumers. Free trials should simply stop the app from working at the end of the trial until the individual elects to pay the subscription fee. The one star review remains for this reason. The way the free trial is implemented is bad for consumers and is shady. I was also irked that the way the free trial actually works didn't reveal itself until the app appears to be ready for the child to use and it is handed over to the child. At that point the child enters a numeric code presented to them and suddenly a google pay screen appears. This means the child is excited to try the app and the parent is left with a choice of disappointing the child or handing over Google Pay approval in hopes of being able to cancel the subscription if the app isn't to their kid's liking. That seems intentionally manipulative. If the app is so good do a clean free trial with no tricks. At the end of the seven days present a choice for the parent to pay the subscription.

Hi! Home subs make it possible to keep the app free for schools & libraries while still creating new content for kid coders on a regular basis. When you started your free trial, you chose the annual subscription at a special discount. We're happy to help you with a refund if you're not happy with the app. Please contact us at Support@codeSpark.com.

As a teacher, this app is great to use in class. You can create a free account and download easy-to-use lessons that help children learn the differences between stacking, queueing, looping, sequencing and more. You can prevent kids from playing more than an hour and limit which skills they are learning in each lesson but "opening" or "closing" different games. It uses real technology words and for EAL learners is perfect as there is not need for traditional reading in English. Love it!
