Crashes When Screen Flips 1/5
I was testing just the basic functionality of this app and it crashed when I switched from landscape to portrait mode. Terrible piece of software to ask users for a subscription fee.
I’m choosing to end my testing here because I have no faith in an app that fails basic test.
DELETED AND MOVE ON! NOT WORTH THE TIME.
Bad Customer Service 1/5
By no to mimo
Be sure to pay attention to which account you tie your payment to. This app can create multiple accounts. After canceling payment on one account, I was surprised to see a charge for a renewal. Apparently payment was tied to another account. After contacting customer service, they refused to offer me a refund. Never using Mimo again.
First impression 5/5
Learn in a very interactive way. Just dedicating some minutes every day. A great idea for people who wants to know what is code and how can influence your lives. Very instructive and interesting. Great for now.
I want refund 1/5
By Vivek Shrivastav
There are lots of bugs of bugs on your web version projects. I write right codes but It doesn’t let me move forward. when I click on check codes nothing happens same with the hint. Can’t move forward to that is not good. FIX That add some more projects of unity.
or give me my money back.
Monthly Fee 3/5
This is a wonderful app, but I’d much rather have a one time payment for a course instead of a fee every three months or a year for all of them. That said, this app is decently well put together.
Free apps 1/5
By xo.has that review
When you say this is a free app I would like to see that you would teach someone how to code and not making them pay money to you that’s kinda of messed up because I was looking forward on making a website
Expensive but Worth it 5/5
By Engineer Trey
I admit, to gain full access to the app, it requires some money, and not just a little bit. However, it has helped out a lot getting familiar with many different programming languages. I think it’s worth it!
I love this educational coding platform!! 5/5
I have no prior experience in coding and this app help me to understand and learn basing computer programming and coding! Thank you Mimo!!
I was really interested in this stuff but I definitely don’t have the money to afford the full version it’s to expensive but this is the only app like it on the market I wish they could have it cheaper in some way please that’s all I need because the free lessons do not teach you anything
By Cassie L. B.
The trial lesson was so simple and it’s the same thing no matter what you want to learn. It was so short and far to easy to really gage if the app would be worth paying for. There’s no way to take an actual lesson to know if the app is worth spending $50 for.
Good but I wish it was cheaper! 4/5
You should make a free trial for us!
By Red ashes
Fun if you like quizzes and want to learn to code! Edit: no problem! I got this app and learned to code fast. I’m already working on a game and I’m only 10!
By Jdoodle dooodles
The second I tapped the second lesson I had to make some membership. And that’s ok but I just finished the first lesson I haven’t learned anything besides that code goes in a specific order. I’m sure if bought this it would teach me more but I think that you should at least teach users to use simple coding instead 1 free lesson
No information for beginners 1/5
First of all I like the idea behind this apps. It’s great and amazing. However, there is no information explain the coding for beginners. When I started the app it just giving me examples and questions to answers. Now I’m studying R and terminal in school so,how we learn in school. First we go through lecture and introduction for the topic to understand the basic behind this coding before we move to R or Terminal and do some work/exercisesthere. I think in my opinion if you guys make small introductions with explain before the training session that would be very helpful.
Thanks in advance :)
Too expensive 3/5
The app is great but its bit expensive
It is not free. 1/5
Title says it all you have to buy any lesson past the first 2 intro which is really a joke.
Take it slow and practice.. START HERE 5/5
I’ve done many different apps and learning programs, and this one I find brings me along at a pace where I’m not forgetting any material. Im less afraid of the coding world , i look forward to the next section, and I love how it doesn’t leave me stuck figuring problems out by searching forums like other program apps do. THIS is the best place to start learning codes and computer science , they don’t make you read a long paragraph for every section. It’s a few sentences and boom. It’s so much to tell , JUST try it.
No status bar / syncing 3/5
Please include the iPad status bar in the app. Also, please sync lesson progress between different devices.
Awesome but expensive 5/5
This app is great! But all of that content you can find online and learn by yourself. I apreciares that they compile and make easier to learn but stills quite expensive thought.
Should be free 1/5
I understand that the developers need to make money, but this app has the same appearance as Duolingo but for some reason this is $10 per month. Couldn’t you use ads for revenue or something else?
Learn by frustration 3/5
There are some thing that are assumed, not covered, and you end up learning things the hard way, making guesses and getting it wrong. At least they give you a reason why an answer is correct.
I was looking forward to building on my coding skills, but everything useful is locked behind a paid subscription. Congratulations on luring me in with minimal free content. Instant uninstall.
Thank you 5/5
By Chris mr.
Want to say thank you for a such a tasteful app, one that has introduced me comfortably to programming.
Constructive criticism: I’ve subscribed but I do believe a couple more free lessons would be beneficial in helping customers decide whether they want to subscribe or not.
Very good 5/5
Very useful, been looking for an app like this
Good app for on the go learning 2/5
I use this app, especially when I’m on my phone and I don’t have a computer and/or headphones handy. Also great for learning while on a plane with no reception.
Truth is, for the price it’s going for, it’s just not a good value. The subscription business model is terrible for what is offered here. This app is worth maybe $5 tops as a one time fee. I payed $30 for 3 months, lol.
Most of the info found in it can be found for free in various places on the internet and a lot of Udemy courses, which are $10 and are 100x more thorough and better structured.
That being said, it’s a good review tool for various programming topics and it has a cute, albeit sometime forced, sense of humor.
Convenient interface, But this is not for starter. 2/5
Good interface, recommended for review. The explanation may be unfamiliar to beginners.
Waste of time 1/5
I felt like spent more money on their animations, graphics, and advertising than the actual educational content. It looks pretty, but that’s about it. Only one lesson per series is free and that first lesson doesn’t make you feel confident in subscribing. The idea is great but the execution lacks vision. They could do away with all the graphical niceties and make more meaningful lessons for far cheaper, or even better free.
It’s a really good app but you need premium to do all of the chapters so you do one chapter then you can’t move on you would have to buy premium.
It’s pretty good but expensive... 4/5
They let you do one course then you have to play 10$ a moth to access all courses... It’s not bad but I wish they’d let me do 2 or 3 more courses.
Big fan of Mimo 5/5
By the sweet gingerbread man
The amazing interface and interesting intro to building your first app got me hooked.
The first time I tried programming I really struggled, so I was surprised at how fast Mimo got me to building my first iPhone app.
If you’re looking to get started with programming, I highly recommend the premium experience!
Learn to code=Learn to Pay 1/5
Just an FYI, only the first lesson is free. $30 if you want more. The first lesson is almost as easy as 1+1=2 .
Awesome app 5/5
This app is awesome, learning to code has never been easier and funnier. It breaks down the code and explains why and how it works.
Great way to start. 5/5
I’m new to programming but this app has made it very easy to understand. The lessons are simple but effective.
Very good 5/5
Very good as a reference. I highflying recommend it in order to get quickly caught up in secondary languages if you already know 1 programming language.
Super easy, basic, and quick 5/5
So far this app has been pretty neat and great for learning the fundamental concepts of coding.
Do not recommend for beginners! 1/5
By Tori-B. Belle
If you want to learn you need a budget for this app! the design and layout of this app is quite good. But paying such a high price, especially if teens/young adults want to learn doesn’t work out. Wasted my time.
Okay , this game , at first , is like Duolingo but for coding and hacking. But then , after one lesson you HAVE to pay 50 dollars! HELL NO. The reason for apps like these is so you DONT have to pay. Needs at least a free version.
Learned crap. Greed at its finest 1/5
You won’t get past the simplest of instructions without the greed setting in. You can learn this crap with a few google Searches.
They spam updates to cycle thru the mass negative reviews 1/5
And also put there app on websites that spam 5 star reviews by people who own iPhones and use the site to spam
5 star reviews for points that add up to money based rewards like Apple gift cards or etc, this is why there’s such a mass of 5 star reviews but not many 5 star comments
Best Code learning app 5/5
Best app I've used to learn coding ever
Unless you pay it’s totally worthless
How do I cancel my subscription? 5/5
I have no idea how to cancel. I don’t think there is a way in the app.
Update: I figured it out.
It is great! 5/5
For all those people complaining that they require a subscription but the app is free, they do that because they want to give you an idea of how it works. I wouldn’t pay for this app without seeing how it worked but with the free lesson I gladly got a subscription. It doesn’t go into detail but it’s just meant to introduce you to the topic. And when you get the subscription it provides a great reliable lesson plan for different categories you want to get into
Great app!!! 5/5
It’s a great app learned a lot. Very interactive with the user keeping you in the loop and guiding you along the way.
Customer Service is TRASH 3/5
Literally only cares about you before you pay. My app showed my subscription was cancelled but it somehow wasn’t? So I was charged a second years subscription. I contacted them literally the moment I was charged and was told I wasn’t going to get reimbursed. Avoid companies that are all about getting every dime they can instead of providing value to end users.
Expensive version of available online resources 3/5
So the first lesson is free, anything after that costs a three month or one year subscription. Save your money and use codecademy unless you absolutely need an app lesson like this...
The lessons themselves are not bad and put things into an easy to understand perspective; it also has several different languages and all.
I give it a 3/5, would certainly give it 5/5 if it was a one time fee for the app or had many more free lessons.
Still Garbage 1/5
Buggy app; no longer tracks my usage for daily check-ins but still pesters me about “just a few minutes to meet your goals!” App freezes and crashes randomly; lessons have typos and lack in depth explanations. I wish i could get back the money I wasted on this.
Use SoloLearn - you’ll learn everything Mimo claims to teach and more, for free, with a dedicated IDE in-app. Or use Py, which is about as basic as Mimo but actually provides real info and exercises that reinforce knowledge beyond the “copy the code exactly and pretend you’re in CS!” that Mimo has going for it.
What a waste of data.
Its not free. It's a monthly subscription. They tell you that AFTER taking your email and now I'm getting spammed with emails after uninstalling.
Price does not match the value 1/5
By Andy 135792468
I get it, a lot of work was put into the development of this app. However, $50 for three months!? All this information is out there and it’s free!! I’m learning lots of this stuff anyway and wanted to test and review my skills on this app. One-star because they really got the price wrong.
