I've read many topics with people wanting to be able to publish their apps in the app store but it would cost them 100$ a month.
Why make individual apps when you can make them all in one:
Hopscotch could make an other app called something like: App Browser
It could be an app where you have a menu like the apple store but less complicated, and have a search bar where you search for apps published by the hopscotch team.
You could not only publish apps in the hopscotch app maker app, but you could alo send a publish request to hopscotch. If they chose you, your app is in the hopscotch app browser.
]--------There could be 15 seconds videos and 30 seconds videos
How to place them:
-Some apps could be free but each time you click to open them it pops up a 15 or 30 secondes video.
-You could also do a game limit time, so that you click a button that pops up a 30 secondes video and it then gives you 10 minutes of game time. Or spend 0.99$ to get 3 hours of gameplay.
And while playing the app, you have a button where it is like:
-Watch a video to earn Super Bird.
What i would like to add too is:
Not like the games in Hopscotch app maker, where you lose your game if you exit your project.
In this one, it saves your Game. And you could also earn achievements, can be done easily with a check if value. I'm talking about in-game achievements.
So like that hopscotch earns money and if they get more than 300$ A year they could start sharing with hopscotchers hopscotchers too.
-Hopscotch will be more popular
-Hopscotch gets money and maybe hopscotchers too
-Hopscotchers will more productive to get their projects as apps.
-100$ for unlimited apps
-Alot of people are going to use it. Inculding me because games get realistic. (I could finally play cookie cliker without having to enter my previous score.
-Since you can't edit code, taking screenshots of your score or sharing your scores are now legit.
Yeah but what kind of apps are we going to have?
These are some examples:
Cookie Cliker by JRD612
Angry Bird by the Hopscotch team
Shake the Coke by Penguin Lax Dude!
Tic Tac Toe by Funkey Monkey
And maybe my snake project
