Swift Application Development

Apple Inc. launched a new programming language called Swift, during it WWDC’14 event. Swift is fast, modern, safe and interactive iOS, OS X programming platform. Let’s find out how it is different and better from widely used iOS programming language, Objective C.

Swift is a new programming language for iOS and OS X apps that builds on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility.

Swift App Development Advantages

  • Speed: Swift was built to be extremely fast, in every respect. Using the high performance LLVM compiler, the code is transformed into optimized native code, to get the most out of modern MAC’s, iPhones and iPads.
  • Designed for Safety: Swift defeats entire classes of unsafe code. Variables are always initialized before use, arrays and integers are checked for overflow and memory is managed automatically.
  • Modern Technology: Swift is the result of the latest research on programming languages, combined with decades of experience building Apple platforms. Named parameters brought forward from Objective-C are expressed in a clean syntax that makes APIs in Swift even easier to read and maintain.


Swift is Rapidly Growing in Popularity

The Key thing to note for choosing the language is that Swift is a new language and therefore very volatile. Because of this there will be a lot of updates which can break your code, and the free resources will be limited.

The volatile nature of Swift is a big reason why major companies has not switched over to Swift yet. This is the main reason why if you want a job now you should start with Objective C.

Apple is pushing for Swift to be the main language moving forward. Possibly in couple years’ software engineers who knows Swift may be in more demand.

Also, the real important thing is not the language you choose. Learning software engineering is what is important and you can accomplish this with either language.
