Swift Development

Swift is an ingenious new language for iOS and OS X development. Apple has declared Swift as "Objective-C without C". It is designed to work with Cocoa and Cocoa Touch Frameworks. It is much more concise and enjoyable as a scripting language. Swift feels familiar to experts and friendly to newbies. With the introduction of Swift, Apple speeds up the app development process. This attracts more customers as they would be able to use better high quality apps and development can be done in a more timely fashion.

We have done projects which made use of the attractive features Swift offer such as multiple return types, closures, generics, type inference, namespaces and a Playground for "live-coding". Along being resilient to erroneous code swift is faster than Objective-C, keeping all the advantages of Objective-C and adapting more from the modern scripting language.

Our developers worked in and out with Playground, which provides an environment to experiment with Swift code. We were able to achieve record breaking deadlines as playground helped to view the output as we type the code in the editor and thereby by passing the compiling and running process.

Swift is already open sourcing the language up to accept Android app development under its wings as well. The Swift language was initially meant to be only for iOS and OS X apps, but now it is taking the step forward and will be making itself available for Android apps as a part of Apple's decision to open-source Swift.

Objective C is the past. Swift is the future of enterprise app development.

While developing iOS apps, especially for enterprises, it is better to investigate for and choose Swift. If you still haven't investigated, here are some of the reasons that will help you in understanding why enterprises choose to make their iOS apps in Swift.

  • The Swift code is easier to read, as compared to Objective- C
  • Develop safe (well, safer) iOS apps with Swift
  • Apps developed with Swift run faster as compared to the apps developed with Objective-C
  • Swift is full of functional programming features
  • Swift code is interactive and fun
  • Develop contextual apps for your enterprise to drive employee's productivity
