I have been trying to CANCEL AND DELETE this app for the past 6 days! This app Does Not allow you ease of access to cancel subscriptions and cancel the account. The cost is 99.99$ a year, they give you a free ADDRESS_REMOVED after which you are charged the subscription fee. However, trying to cancel the subscription prior to the end of the trail THEY MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE! Total scam to get your money. I have tried numerous times and it will not allow me to click the cancel subscription. SCAM!

It's fixed/not fixed
Hi, X sprout X here. It's fixed! No upside down photos! Yesterday I was frustrated with the upside down problem, but hey, it's fixed! Idk why and how, but love ya. My review on this game is AMAZING. I get a little bored sometimes on this game, but you know I love coding in here. I almost have all the things. (Except for the red dragon, gold foonicorn, alien, witch foo, and glitch pet XD) NOW: it's not fixed I guess, but it's really annoyinggggg! Whenever I close the app then open it again, IT HAPPENS AGAIN AND AGAIN. JUST WHY- it's like I have crippling depression- ok enough with that. I'm sorry for complaining (am I?) it's a really good game! I mean, with the annoying sub thing, YOU GET FREE FOOS AND ITEMS! how to get free items? Photo. Creating foos is amazing and helpful. Like getting free foos without even paying for them! But the thing is, idk how to get dragon, glitch pet, and alien. I heard there are special achievements! Maybe those might gimme those! Anyway, love ya. ( Also please fix the splash battle thing it won't find matches :( ) Me:🥹🔫🧑🏻‍✈️:you Please- PAY UP ❄️🪬X sprout X🪬❄️

Our word-free interface allows anyone, anywhere to play. They’ll master core computer science concepts such as pattern recognition, problem solving, sequencing, algorithmic thinking, debugging, loops and conditionals.
