The ads

I love cut the rope it’s my favorite game and there is an ad every level or 2 which I don’t mind but code spark put in a FAKE X at the end of their ad so I accidentally hit it and went to the App Store now I only get code spark ads and I hate seeing the same thing over and over again and the fake x still gets me sometimes I tried everything to get rid of the ads but they won’t go away so thanks for ruining my favorite game code spark

Rip off

They tell you 7 days for free but they want your CC before you can even start to test it. Dont believe the hype...if they say test for 7 days free then mean what you say!

Crashes Too Often

My 5 year old son LOVES playing this app and learning to code, however, the app is constantly crashing on our iPad when he hits certain buttons and tries to code. It will also crash when he’s just showing me something, without hitting a button. We’re paying for a subscription and I’d expect an app that doesn’t crash so easily and frequently.
