Playing two-player apps with other people

Some Bitsbox apps are meant to be played by two or more people using different devices at the same time. Some examples:
  • you on your computer and your friend on her tablet; 
  • you on your phone and your dad on his phone; 
  • a whole classroom of kids on their Chromebooks.
Every Bitsbox app you build has its own web address. To use your app together with another person, both of your devices (computers, phones or tablets) have to be "looking" at the same web address. You don't have to be in the same room or even on the same continent. So cool!

To send your app's unique web address to another person so you can both play your app, pick one of these three methods:

Option A: Scan your app's QR code


If you and the other person are:
  • both in the same room AND
  • the other person is using a phone or a tablet with a camera
... the fastest way to send them your app's unique web address is to let them scan it off your computer screen.

Option B: Send an email with your app's web address


If you and the other person are
  • not both in the same room OR
  • both using computers (instead of phones or tablets)
... send them an email that includes your app's unique email address.

Option C: Copy and paste the web address manually
