I had that app. I didn’t know you can make apps with it. I thought it just teaches you about Swift programming.

You can’t, though you can make apps with Swift.

This is an epic idea!

I have used drag-and-drop coding software similar to Hopscotch that allows you to publish to the App Store, but here were the drawbacks:

. You must own your own website
. You must be 18+ to have a developer license
. It is $99 per year for an Apple developer subscription
. The software put in a long animated splash screen which was annoying
. The app file size was huge for something basic (like 300MB, A normal app that can be downloaded over Cellular is under 150MB)
. Developing an app for iPad would break on iPhones and newer devices with different screen dimensions
. Cannot publish to Google Play store
. etc


This idea is fabulous, but it might be hard to get through the legal issues, money, etc

I doubt they would add that feature, since it is too big a change, and it’s also not legal.

That didn’t answer my question but ok

This is a great idea but this unfortunately won’t happen because apple charges $99/year for maintaining an app on the app store and all those projects will stack up
