TICKLE : drone programming


Tickle app lets you program and add intelligence to all Parrot Minidrones. Its beautifully designed interface makes programming as easy and fun as playing with LEGOs!

Beyond controlling a single device, you can use Tickle to choreograph multiple drones to fly, jump, and sail together! It is the world’s first app to program drones, and the only app that supports all Parrot mini drones: including the latest generation of Airborne, Jumping, and Hydrofoil drones, plus Rolling Spider and Jumping Sumo.

Tickle’s is easy to learn, fun to use, yet incredibly powerful. Code.org calls Tickle “Fantastic. Program multiple robots, drones, and smart-toys, using a familiar interface.” Tickle supports wireless programming of Arduino so you can easily integrate Parrot drones into your DIY maker projects for science fairs and maker faires.

Top universities like UC Berkeley and Harvard have been teaching introductory Computer Science courses using visual programming. Tickle is the best visual programming app for wireless programming on mobile phones and tablets. Developers of UC Berkeley’s Snap programming language and the popular coding app Lightbot call Tickle “the most awesome blocks programming environment for iPad” and “the sleekest Scratch interface we’ve ever seen!”

Parents around the world have been using Parrot drones and Tickle to teach coding to their children as young as 4 years old. Thousands of teachers are also using Tickle to teach a wide range of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEM/STEAM) subjects from primary schools through high schools. Beyond coding education, Tickle has been used for research projects by Computer Science graduate schools at top universities.

Tickle supports all iOS devices running iOS 8 and 9, including iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPads. It is available in Chinese, Dutch, English, French, and Japanese, and have been used in more than 100 countries.

Parrot and Tickle together are leading the way to make learning playful and fun, and have been featured by Apple at Apple Distinguished Educator events around the globe. Tickle’s software is a perfect match for Parrot’s hardware to advance the boundaries of education and entertainment.
