Is it possible to import existing Scratch projects?
From version 1.9, you can share projects via AirDrop! Please update Pyonkee if you are using older version.
Is it free to use Pyonkee on classrooms?
It is completely free. If you would like to customize Pyonkee for your purposes, please contact us.
I would like to delete a project, but I am not sure how to do it.
If you keep selecting a project on FileDialog (by long-tap), a menu for removing/renaming project will be shown. Example projects are read-only, so you can not remove them.
I would like to use iPad sensor values block. But I'm not sure where to access them.
By default, the devise sensing feature is off, for saving the battery. Please try the menu - "Edit"-> "Start Sensing". Now you can see various new options (acceleration, gyro, etc) in sensor value block. (Tweets)
Can I make a .hex file to connect to micro:bit from Pyonkee by myself?
You can easily create it with MakeCode. Add the Bluetooth services and make sure to select "No Pairing Required: Anyone can connect via Bluetooth." in the project settings. (Tweets)
