Our favorite apps from Summer 2018

Our favorite apps from Summer 2018

Summer has come to an end and, boy, did it fly by. One thing's for sure: A LOT of kids coded with Bitsbox. In fact, this summer alone, 2,315,451 minutes were spent coding on our website!

WOW! Whether it was in summer camp, before swim lessons, or after a long day in the park, that's a lot of time spent building apps.

And while we work hard to send crazyfun app projects every month for kids to imitate and tweak, some of our favorite apps are the original ones that kids create from scratch. So we're sharing our top 10 favorites from this summer! Check 'em out:

(A note that these apps are being shared from an anonymous coding account under the name Big Coder in order to protect these kiddos' privacy!)
