Making a Hopscotch account w/o buying a subscription

#21

You can without sub, it’s just kinda hidden


#22

Does this topic still have the right directions?


#23

Yes, look at post 1 first @Paige1212 @Murphy1 @HappyDolphin


#24

how? the student thing above? it’s horrible that they’re this greedy now - i understand they need to make money but this is a new low. i’d rather spend $90 on something worthwhile than an APP. so glad i dont have hs anymore


#25

Ok good that that still works.


#26

Yeah
This is the only way to get around it as far as I know


#27

I’m confused.
Do they not make you buy a subscription?


#28

It is the student thing, and they do need to change this. It doesn’t register as a student if you don’t get a code


#29

It says “Free Trial” and pay if you make an account normally, but if you go the student way, then it’s free


#31

No one is going to care that much about getting hopscotch.
A new person trying to learn how to code wouldn’t know about bypassing the $90.


#32

oops might have accidentally said a swear there so ill say it again:

i dont personally like apps that claim to be free but charge you instead. guess hopscotch is one of them now. hopscotch: you have hit a new low. this is why people are going to use scratch instead.


#33

Yeah, you are downloading an app that seems to be free, but then charges you money once you open it. :roll_eyes:
Not even a reasonable amount.


#34

(The subscription is like $7/month and $90/year, or there’s a free trial)


#35

How long does the free trial last?


#36

A week I think.


#37

I’m not paying $90 for an APP. I’d rather spend it on something actually worthwhile. A subscription to that kids’ game Animal Jam is cheaper, for the love of ***.


#38

it’s true,


#39

but what…?


#40

but you can get around it (comma was for 10 chars)


#41

THT does need to make money. They’re prob a smaller team than Scratch anyway.
Wait isn’t scratch run by like MIT or something
