The app itself doesn't require that you make an account to use it, though if you want to take advantage of any of Codeacademy's other courses, you'll have to do so online. Those wary about privacy will probably want to skip the final step of the final lesson (spoiler alert!), which lets users publish a simple personal website. The app, originally made just for the iPhone and iPod Touch, has also been optimized for the iPad. Free, for Apple's iOS devices.
