We just released a new Hopscotch update!
Instead of existing just on your iPad, it now lives on our server, which means that you can use it (and all your projects) on any iPad. You can also use multiple Hopscotch accounts on the same iPad—say goodbye to sharing your account with your siblings.
A few things you should know:
- There are now logout and upload buttons on your profile:
The “...” button on the right lets you log out of your account.
The cloud button on the left lets you move your drafts from your iPad to our server. If you’re that person with a bajillion (50) drafts, you might have to upload them more than once. You’ll only need to use this when you first upgrade, or if you edit your draft offline.
- When you log out or download a new app, there's an option to login to your account with your username and password:
Let us know what you think of the update! If you run into any trouble or forget your password, shoot us an email.

PS: Curious about how all this works? We got you. This was a pretty complex update (which is why it took us several attempts to get it right—thanks again for your patience). We had to redefine how Hopscotch thinks about accounts. Before, your account and the stuff you made on it lived locally on your iPad. You published projects to the community and then we saved them on our server. If your iPad died or you deleted your app, everything that was saved to it—your drafts and profile—was wiped.
Now, your account exists on the server. As you work on a project (assuming you have wifi), your work is automatically saved to the server. This is why you can access your drafts from any iPad. It’s not quite magic, but almost.
