Hey, my name is KaMar and I am going to tell you about the “Title Sprite” add-on.

A lot of software development focuses on the user experience, which makes the software easy and pleasurable to use.

In this add-on, you’ll improve your app’s user experience by creating a title screen.

This video will give you some ideas, then you’ll create and program the title screen on your own! To start, create a new sprite. Explore how to use the paint tools to create a colorful title. You may find it easier to work with text in vector mode. Vector mode allows you to edit text after you’ve written it. Try different colors, sizes, and fonts to create your title.

Then, use “when flag clicked,” “show,” “wait,” and “hide” blocks to program the title slide to appear at the start of your program, then hide.

Consider adding an animation effect to your title using “repeat” and “change effect” blocks. Now, it’s your turn: Create a title screen. Program the title screen to show at the beginning of the program, then hide. Add effects to enhance your title’s appearance.
