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.
Okay, I've been wrongly informed *sob*. Thanks for telling me.

Think of it as an alternative to Scratch, not a replacement.

Look here

That's not a program called “Blocks”. That's a Scratch update.

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:

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

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

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 mature, because it has full Internet access. If the iPad is locked down to a lower age level, then Puffin cannot be installed.
2. Worryingly, Puffin does not obey to iOS Restrictions.
3. Puffin does not appear to have it's own content filters/restrictions of its own.

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.
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.

Heard that MIT is working on an officially Scratch app!
Isn't that Scratch Jr., if otherwise may I have a source?

I'm sorry but the scratch wiki is not up to date the leaving scratch behind and making a ugly programme called blocks:-(
I'm not sure what you're saying - blocks are part of Scratch.

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)
Yes, because it's written in HTML5.

Look on the scratch wiki about scratch :-/

I don't see why you think they're ugly. I appreciate the minimalist design, and how you can put blocks from left to right now.

There you go! Since it looks like whatever question you had in the first place is now solved, I'll have this thread be closed.

Guess you'll have to make do, then. I think there are some decent Scratch clones you can find on the App Store, maybe try those.

Hopscotch, for one. Try searching “hopscotch” on your iPad.

It's alright if you spelt it wrong, and I can't find a source that they're replacing Scratch with that program?

Your previous advice is helpful, excluding this one. Don't randomly buy apps on the App Store unless it's trustworthy, people. There's still malicious code on mobile devices.

I think there's already one, however it costs USD$1.99? I haven't checked.

He'll have to work with MIT and stuff for licensing and stuff - overall I think it's up to the ST which I doubt they'll do, instead focus on the Scratch 3.0 edition which will work on HTML5 - which will work on iPads.

Lets not shorthand here.

Also, your dad would have to talk with the MIT Scratch Team in Massachusetts. Scratch is a copyrighted program, so he can't illegally copy the
Scratch website, or its editor to a mobile app without permission according to section 5 of the terms of use. Actually, its considered against terms of use to use the modified editor and share projects from it.

Scratch Team from Terms of Use § 4.4 wrote:

You may only submit user-generated projects that were created with (1) the Scratch website editor or (2) an unmodified copy of the Scratch editor compiled from the source code described in Section 5.3. You may not upload any projects that were created, by you or by anyone else, with a modified version of the Scratch editor.

So if someone makes one, then they may get in a bit of trouble.
