We need a proper Scratch app for iPad, not one that needs jailbreaking (jail breaking is bad) (Jail breaking lets people see your own info like
where you live)

The Puffin app will let you use Scratch, I think, on an iPad. Or any app browser that enables Flash should work.

I Think web browsers should have ristrictions for younger audeinces

FellowFlea

I think scratch for iPad should have a new exlusive alien to the app like blip (blip is a thing I made up)
or a new block likk
if <Sprite 1 is moving then..> 



else
You get the idea...

move (Ios 11 should alow it) steps

Opps I erlair post I added a typo

iPads for children should be run with the appropriate level of Restrictions to prevent them seeing unsuitable content. Puffin has the following problems:
1. The app is rated 17+ (because it has full internet access). If the iPad is locked down to a lower age level (i.e. to make it kid safe) then Puffin can't be installed (or, if already installed, seen). Allowing all age apps may not be an issue if App Store access is disabled and any higher age-rated apps are removed.
2. Worryingly, Puffin does not obey the iOS Restrictions->Websites setting (except, ironically, on its own Settings page), so kids can access anything on the internet. This is probably because it is all proxied through their servers in order to provide Flash support, etc.
3. Most seriously, Puffin does not appear to provide any content filters or restrictions of its own (that I could see, anyway, looking at the Settings page within the Puffin app, and also looking at the Puffin settings in the iOS Settings app).

We really need a proper iPad Scratch app. I suspect it'll have to wait until after Scratch is migrated from Adobe technologies to pure HTML5.

Timewomble you are completely right

I heard that a scratch app is coming out soon but till then keep making ideas

repeat (Imagine)programeend

Heard that MIT is working on an officially Scratch app!

FellowFlea

I'm sorry but the scratch wiki is not up to date the leaving scratch behind and making a ugly programme called blocks:-(

FellowFlea

But keep making ideas for features

Actually, in the big 3.0 update coming sometime this year, you will be able to work on projects through the Scratch website on mobile devices (That includes things like iPads and tablets)

Bright-Idea

Yep! Scratch will be converted to HTML5, and you will be able to use it on mobile devices. It should be premiering sometime in the near future, like early-mid 2017.

Austinato

We do want a mobile app for Scratch, however that would be a bit more difficult (rewriting Scratch 2.0 (and possibly 3.0) top-down with a sharing feature), and it wouldn't be necessary as Scratch 3.0 will be written in HTML5 - something supported by iOS and Android, as well as most other web browsers.

The reason why the full Scratch website doesn't work is because iPads are not Flash-compatible.

If you're impatient, and you would like to use a functional Scratch now on a Flash-running web browser, use footsocktoe's suggestion:

You should suggest a new character and block in the Suggestions forum, rather than here.

I don't see a proper iPad Scratch app as the solution - as of now, you could go with Scratch Jr., an official MIT app, or wait until Scratch 3.0 is released late next year which will be HTML5 compatible - meaning it could be used on Safari.

Isn't that Scratch Jr., if otherwise may I have a source?

I'm not sure what you're saying - blocks are part of Scratch.

Yes, because it's written in HTML5.

According to the Wiki article and a few other sources, they're aiming for an alpha by the end of 2017 - and alpha's are before the final release.
