Im really dont like people are leaving over this. IT DOES NOT COST MONEY only if you want the images. Yea sure you can say its overpriced, but really, Does it effect you? Pretend the new update did not exist, thats how it is if you dont get the new update. Its not like scratch, Its run by MIT which is rich and powerful. Hopscotch does not. But think about this,
Do you really NEED images
It boosts creativity level and everyone will think your cooler
And some more.
Yea I really went overboard but I just wanted to get that out of the way. This is pointless tho, But still..
