Kodable was founded to make programming accessible to everyone. We want more kids learning to code by making it a fun and inviting experience. To ensure we are meeting that goal, we constantly seek and listen to feedback from you, our users. After listening to your suggestions over the past several months and with a web version of Kodable on the horizon, we have decided to retire Kodable Class from the App Store, and migrate the features to Kodable. Streamlining all of Kodable into one great app that EVERYONE can use.
As we prepare to release Kodable on Web, Android, etc, having one app will make more sense and make things consistent for students no matter where they choose to access Kodable.
Starting November 28th, Kodable Class will no longer be available in the App Store, and ALL Kodable Class subscribers, including those on School Plans, will need to migrate to the Kodable App. All of your info will migrate just by entering your class codes or following the migration instructions, so you don’t need to worry about losing it.
Join us for a Migration Webinar November 19th.
To ensure a smooth transition, we’re hosting a short webinar on November 19th at 10am PST. See what time that is for you, here. We’ll walk through the steps for migrating to Kodable, and answer any questions you have about the process. If you can’t make it, check back here for a recording.
To migrate in under 5 minutes take a look at our migration guide here!
What does this mean for you?
If you are using Kodable, not Kodable Class or Kodable Pro: Nothing will change!
If you are using Kodable Class with a Class account: When you have time over the next couple months you should install Kodable on your iPads instead of Kodable Class. You’ll only need one app from that point on! 🙂 All of your info will migrate just by entering your class codes, so you don’t need to worry about losing it.
If you are using Kodable Pro without a Class account: We’ve submitted a final update that will have all the migration information in it. It will be available as soon as Apple approves it. All of your info will migrate just by following the migration instructions, so you don’t need to worry about losing it.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What happens after Kodable Class is removed from the App Store on the 28th?
A: If you have Kodable Class on your iPad, it will NOT be removed from the device. However, you will no longer receive future updates to Kodable, and the Kodable Class app will not get future content. Furthermore, if the app is deleted from your device, you will not be able to download it again.
Q: I really like Kodable Class! Why do I need to switch?
A: As we add a web version, Android version etc, Kodable will need to offer students and educators one, consistent learning experience. The features of Kodable Class are NOT going away, they are simply being integrated into Kodable, so you only need one app, with a simple, streamlined experience.
Q: How do I transfer my students who aren’t in a class, but have a profile on the iPad only?
A: It is very easy! Please see our migration guide here.
Q: I am a Kodable Pro user, what happens for me?
A: You can easily transfer your progress and keep all of the levels. See page 2 of the Migration Guide.
Q: I don’t want to download another app, do I have to?
A: No, you can continue using Kodable Class as before. However, you will NOT receive any future updates after the 28th of November, and you will NOT receive any future content that comes with them. Furthermore, if the app is deleted from your iPad, you will NOT be able to download it again, and will need to get Kodable.
Q: I have a lot of iPads, I can’t get around to updating them before the 28th! Help!
A: If you cannot update by the 28th, don’t worry, the app will still work on your iPads as before. However, you should update as soon as possible to ensure you get future updates and content. .
Q: Can someone from Kodable help me?

Q: What do I do if I created a class, but also have students who aren’t in a class that I want to transfer?
