Why so much 2/5
By Jadin hashisaki
The fact that you have to pay for even basic lesson is quite annoying. I mean I get that the developers need money but don’t force us to pay for basic stuff. If it were more advanced things that would make sense.
This game taught me so much
I really love this app but... 2/5
This app only really lets you be able to do 1 lesson if you didn’t pay. Since I’m a child I can’t really pay so I only able to do 1 lesson per chapter, and not be able to do any of the challenges either. I wish you could make it to at least being able to do more than 1 lesson per chapter with out paying. But other than that this app is really amazing and great for learning code if you want or have the money to pay for it.
Wants money 2/5
I like it so far but the problem was that I wanted me to pay to continue. I thought it was gonna be fun for me but it wasn’t, all I want was to code but this app wanted money so you can learn. I do not except this behavior. I recommended not getting this app!
Lovely App, Hefty Price 3/5
Love the app so far, but 10 dollars a month is a bit much. There is a cheaper yearly option, but I can’t justify spending that much on an app
So far so good! 5/5
I enjoy the simplicity. Will update review as I use the app more. :)
I haven’t paid for the subscription so I don’t know how good that app is. I’m not going to give it a bad review just because the price but I think it could be a bit cheaper. By possibly implementing ads or something
I wanted to get to learn the basics of everything so I could actually know what i’m doing when building a site... but I can’t even do the learning course without expensive premium.
Duck this chit 1/5
I HAVE TO PAY MOTHER FRICKING PREMIUM FOR EVERYTHING OMG I FRICKING HATE YOU
By Object awsome
"learn to code" hahaha thats funny, so i have to pay 30 dollars a month to learn on an app when i could learn how to code better in a school for free? and it says unlock everything and it means "unlock the ability to actually use the app and not have it be a waste of time" because you cant do anything without the subscription
Such a great choose 5/5
So I have always wanted to learn how to code but it always felt very intimidating. This app is amazing and I am so happy I did the paid subscription. I haven’t had this much fun learning something in a long time. Worth every penny.
Subscription based 1/5
By Yabuki Akira
Need pay $9.99/month
Maybe the app is great but canceling a subscription is a nightmare 3/5
Still trying to figure out how to cancel an automatic annual subscription. It seems like the developers put a lot of effort to hide it and make it impossible to cancel.
Not worth the money, buy a real class 1/5
I’ve been programming for 10 years using several languages and work with a man with over 30 years experience. This app is okay for VERY BASIC knowledge and understanding of programming, but at the same time misleading as it teaches you the WRONG things.
It’s good to get a basic idea of how to read code, but when it comes to concepts and explaining the definitions of things it is a VERY POOR resource. Definitely not worth the cost just to learn how to read basic code when you could do the same on the internet for free. Save the money and pay for an actual class or use a free resource like “learn to code x the hard way”.
Love it 5/5
If you have the money to pay for it, it’s truly amazing!
Learn on the go 5/5
By el hefe loco1
Great app to use
I like this app but like there’s not enough free content I really wanna learn more stuff but unfortunately I can’t afford to be paying monthly
This is bad 1/5
Why do you have to pay to start coding it is very dumb please fix it
Practice lessons 1/5
When trying the practice lessons I fix the error and it comes back with what I just put in is in error. Even though it is what was showing.
Must pay $30+ to learn 1/5
I’d be a lot more inclined to pay if I actually got a sample of what the course is but instead there is one intro module for each category and you can’t go further. The intro module isn’t a sufficient example of the course as each into is something like:
1. Hi this course is about ——
2. ——— is used for websites
3. Pay to learn more.
Yes, I paid 5/5
Honestly, Mimo is such an entertaining and sweet app! I know it requires a subscription but there are also a lot of free topics. The subscription itself only costs ten dollars per month. I think this is a pretty good deal. I have been on mimo for a while now, and it taught me so much! I think if anything it should be worth more than it is 😂
You have to pay to test the app 1/5
I hate apps that ask you to sign up and then tells you that you have to pay to try the app.
I’m a kid who wants to make an app one day, I thought this would help me BIG TIME! I was also excited to learn from this app, but sadly! EVERYTHING COSTS MONEY! YOU CANT EXEPT A CHILD TO USE MONEY TO GET PREMIUM DO YOU? I’m very disappointed 👎🏻
It’s so easy
I feel like a Harvard computer science student 💁🏽♂️
Just after 1 hr practicing at mimo
Thanks 🙏🏽 mimo for the opportunity 👌🏽👌🏽
Amazing Tool, But... 4/5
I’ve been doing the C# basics for half an hour, and I already love this app. The amazing in-depth lessons and topics are super helpful. However, the part that I don’t like is the fact that you have to pay for the app’s main attraction in both learning and marketing. My problem isn’t that the app makes money for the developer, it’s that the app is pretending to be free, when really to use the main feature of the app you have to pay.
What I think would fix this is making one or two of the main courses free, like the making games or learn code, and making the rest a one-time-buy.
Free trial after you commit to annual subscription 3/5
It must be difficult to be an app developer. I see they have changed their business model after listening to reviewers’ complaints. Instead of one free level, they decided to make none of the levels accessible until you pay for an annual subscription to get the 7 day trial. However I’m hesitant to sign up due to past issues with companies charging people after canceling anyway.
I’d suggest to at least go back to how it was and show us the first lesson to see what it’s like.
They also lowered the price. Instead of $50,it is $30 for one year. That’s a pretty good price, but again, I don’t even know what the lessons are like.
Now, I don’t believe in giving away your digital art for free. I am myself a digital artist and I understand completely!
If I am going to commit to an app for one year, I can’t go in blindly, even if canceling it is an option. I’d like a preview, and maybe I’ll give the trial a shot and update this review.
What contents is free? 2/5
I got the app knowing there was a subscription bit I just wanted to try a few lessons, the problem is that I don’t know what lessons are free. I selected the most basic courses then the first chapter in that course then the first lesson in that chapter and it still gave me the subscription pop up and didn’t let me access the lesson.
You have to pay for everything. I am so frustrated right now. I was SO excited for nothing..
No money no function 1/5
By Ark for lif3
As simple as that, you don’t pay you don’t play
Subscription has is all 1/5
I downloaded this app and expected at least something to be free but... THERE IS NOTHING FREE!!! You can only use the app if you subscribe and that costs money.
Learning code on the go 5/5
What’s great about the app is having it during free time to prime up on basics or reenforcing good habits. It’s easy to use and easy to reference when you forget.
I hate this 1/5
No one likes to waste there money for n something you can do for free
This is the worst app ever 1/5
I was trying to find an app so I can learn to make fun games and code for family and friends and nothing on here is free
For me the first time is horrible ever thing I tried you need money. If you don’t want to pay money on a game don’t download this one.
Is anything free? 2/5
Is it possible for free courses on this app?
There is really no point to this app unless you pay for the subscription. You can’t do anything without buying the subscription, making it kind of pointless to call it “premium” when thats the only way to do anything.
The worst 1/5
It needs money to do anything you can do for free on a different coding app
Just charge for the app 2/5
If not one single thing in the app is going to be free, and I’m not talking about a free trial of the paid stuff, the just charge for the app! When developers make their apps free but nothing in the app is actually free, except for a free trial that takes your credit card info anyway, it makes customers feel lied to. Just be upfront with it, this looks like a great app and of course people will jump on it if it’s “free”! If developers are going to keep their apps free but charge for content, which is understandable because developers have rent to pay and food to buy too, I’d recommend at least making an introductory level content free so customers can try it out before deciding to make a regular financial commitment. People are hesitant to just give credit card info for free trials, there have been more than one company and more than one instance where cards got charged anyway or purchases were made without the cardholder’s consent.
Waste of time 1/5
Everything you try to do it wants you to pay for. Do not waste your time.
Rating depends on the user 1/5
If I were looking to buy an app to teach me how to code this app would probably be the one. Once you log in it seems super simple to navigate through the app. However the reason I rated this one star was because I really don’t like it when apps make you sign in and give them your email and after you give them your information hit you with the “you must purchase a membership to proceed”. Like seriously for us looking for a free app to download it wastes our time when apps like to tell you that there’s a membership included...after the fact that you sign up. But anyways, if I were to buy an app this would be the one.
Was eager to try it, only to find out you have to put in your credit card info to try it out. Not worth the trouble. They take your facebook info, and then they want your credit card? How about you give a little for a change? Make it a real FREE trial and THEN if we like it, we give you our data (which you will most likely sell anyway)
Behind a Subscription Paywall. 1/5
They offer a 7-day trial but all of the content is behind the paywall and you can’t even do a sample course to see if it is compatible. If you could pay smaller amounts for the individual courses it wouldn’t be so bad, but it’s parading as a free app. I understand that developers need to get paid and absolutely should get paid, but the amount of subscription services nowadays is astounding.
What ever happened to paying a flat fee for an app?
I just want to learn to code... 1/5
I just want to learn how to code but I honestly don’t want to pay a lot of money for a free game. If the things were like 2-4 dollars I would pay for it.
Great for beginners 5/5
It has really helped me learn and pickup the basics of coding again I really like the app.
Wasted Download 1/5
I was very much looking forward to at least learning the basics for free, I knew at some point I’d have to pay for advanced material but when I downloaded it THEN it said I’d have to pay if I wanted to continue. I’m not paying constantly. Maybe a one time pay, like I could with a book, or if I wanted to move on to the next level I’d pay for a new chapter or level, but I’m not paying every month for something I’ll lose interest in a month.
Come on, a subscription? 3/5
By Ryan DiBartolomeo
I was interested in this app as soon as I saw the App of the Day story. I downloaded this app, only to find that almost everything needed to be paid for! I was so sad, because I loved the app’s simplicity and ease of use.
New beginnings! 5/5
Coding is something that kind of just popped into my life as an option recently. I wasn’t sure how I was going to go about it and so I turned to the good ole App Store!
I’m still in the beginning stages but I have to say that this app makes is so easy to learn, and fun too!
I’m the type of person that couldn’t focus in school unless I was interested and this keeps me emerged for lesson after lesson. Being able to leave and come back right where I left off or going back to review old lessons also is a great function.
Thank you Mimo!
Another phony 1/5
Just wants my info and CC before I even get started
The 7 day trial doesn’t get you anywhere
