An app has been released for the iPhone that claims to be able to help iPhone owners "learn the basics of coding in under one hour" through quick demonstrations and exercises designed to be carried out in quick sessions throughout the day.
"Our app gets you started by introducing you to the basic concepts behind the apps on your phone and the websites you visit. You'll learn to understand the basic structure of code when you see it," said the description on Apple's App Store.
"Use your phone for what it's good for - quick, fun exercises on the go. Program when you get home and stay fresh by reviewing on the go."
More than 450,000 people signed up for Codecademy online courses in 2012, and 60% of the website's users are based outside of the US.
It is not yet confirmed whether the app will be launching on Android, but it is likely that the developers were waiting for Apple approval before moving on to other operating systems.
