Thanks, I thought it was just me. Updated the deal to only iOS.
Free on play store as well. Just installed it to a Huawei p10. Assuming those who can't see it have a handset that hasn't been listed as compatible by the Devs

Thanks for sharing this! I'm not too sure what's going on with the Android version (originally had android in this post too, but had to remove due to apparent unavailability), but I'm glad you managed to install it.
Have grasshopper on my android ?

This any good to mess about with?

I'd say it's a start, if you ever wanted to try coding. There are many other resources available online for more comprehensive learning, this is just a nice app to explore some of the fundamental programming concepts which will definitely assist you, if you decide to pursue it further.
Sorry, managed to find it. Doesn't come when searching with text but appeared in the list when typing 😁. Thanks!

Been using this for a couple of weeks to help broaden my knowledge, it’s a great time passer on the ol’ daily commute
Anyone got the link for the Android version?

google 'play store grasshopper'first result?



I'm getting a dialer app as the first result. Can't see the app anywhere, I'm assuming it isn't compatible with any of my devices (even though my phone is 6.0 and well specced).

Has anyone got a copy and paste link I could try?
I really want this for Android too.. looks just like the thing I would enjoy learning... lets hope they put it back up.


-******** Update ********-

Get it here :-)

I took many free online courses trying to learn Android but it was only when I took the free Android basics nano degree did I actually get it. To learn Android you not only have to learn Java but also xml, Android Studio, OOP and a host of other things to make your programs work. I'm looking to learn a bit of Javascript which is why this deal suits me. I've several ideas on the go but the thing is I can get an idea up and running in a night. When I get stuck, Google is your friend as is StackOverflow (terrible place to ask noob questions though.)

tbh i have noticed the play store search results are as bad as the ones using this site
i dont see how it is possible to write those 4 specific words of the title and have it NOT come up as top result... or ANY result!
even just using 'grasshopper' gets you some programming gubbins so it knows what it is - just refuses to return it
Enjoying this thanks op

you don't have to learn Java Android apps can be written in other languages Java is recommended though I recommend it because pretty much all the official documentation/examples use it and you don't wanna have to translate Java to C/C++ or whatever language you choose to code in while your still learning Android development, especially if your a beginner. XML is just a markup language its syntax is really simple and easy to pick up as you crack on as for a programming language it doesn't make much sense to try developing Android apps without knowing an OOP language and this is were a lot of beginners go wrong they jump in head first and then find its to hard because they don't even know the language there coding the app in.

It was free when I took it although I could have got a certificate for a fee, other more advanced courses were chargeable but the basic course will get you all you need to publish on the Play store. When I clicked on their free courses it pops up. Try signing up but don't give any bank or card details, you'll maybe find that the material will be free after you've joined.

Kotlin is now the preferred language but as I've just learned Java, I think I'll stick with that. The reason I struggled wasn't Java, I already knew about variables, loops, etc., it was because I just couldn't figure out how it all went together. Just using Android Studio is overwhelming. For ages I could make a screen layout in xml but couldn't link buttons and objects to variables. When I finally got my head round that it all fell into place. I've just learned things as I've needed them since (just in time method).

I've only released one app in the Play Store, a simple fixture list that has a widget to sit on your home screen. It wasn't complicated but it filled a purpose no other app could do. I've several other apps in production, one of which is close to release (although it's been close for the last 6 months).
