    Doesn't feel very Windows-Phone-8ish

    A very nice app for learning coding right from the basics..... But has an issue of hanging down..... Microsoft pls resolve the issue of app collapsing

  • by Lukáš 11/7/2014
    New version is truly bad. Just wrapper for web page. Slow and totally unusable comparing to previous version which I've loved. 👎

    Really robust; I am surprised how much you can do with TouchDevelop
  • by Costello 11/2/2014
    Highly recommended. Just Install It And Wait Until It Works Better Please add Silverlight APIs in their touch develop way for WP 8.1 : • Memory ( RAM ) • Background Agent • File System ( File Picker, SD Card ) • Storage ( Used/Free ) • Custom URIs • Network (Getting Phone IP Address) • Ad Management (An API To Enable/Disable Ads On The Fly) • In App Purchases (to allow optional donations) • Multithreading v3.0+ is VERY UNSTABLE! I have to reload constantly Etc. The Android Version Works Better Then This
