According to IDC research, Android has already dominated 82.8% of the market share worldwide in the smartphone industry. With this, we came to know that mobile application developers are looking to be enormously successful in the enterprise vertical and are focusing on app development for iOS. Moreover, Swift being Apple’s new programming language is rapidly gaining popularity for app development.
Being an avid developer, you need to develop for Apple’s platforms that has platforms OS X, iOS, tvOS, watchOS. Presently, the practical Swift applications are limited to only few things like proof-of-concept implementations on non-Apple platforms. But since few years, things have completely revolutionized and changed and undoubtedly, we will see the expansion of the Swift-affected world.
So, have you ever thought? - What makes Swift engrossing? - Is it an extremely modern language that has well-versed features and design elements. Swift has emerged as an elegant strong safety, and is extremely fast, thus owing to its heritage derived from the LLVM compiler project.
Moreover, it has many engrossing and enticing features for mobile app developers, i.e. error-handling system, optional, and Swift’s adherence to protocol-oriented architecture.
Swift works amazing at desktop and mobile application development. Developers can build software quickly by using an engrossing and interactive REPL and also get out-of-the-box performance from the resulting code.
Since 30 years, Objective-C is gaining popularity. However, Apple didn’t have a specific reason for introducing the new language. One of the most likely reasons is - Apple can add or change any features and functions that it requires.
Swift is the future and provides the direct ways to the development community to leverage a language that will be entirely used for developing enterprise apps that support Apple Watch. Additionally, the key advantage of Swift is it will make porting iOS apps to Android apps easier. You don't need to utilize the existing and relatively effective tools that port Objective-C to Java.
According to Tim Cook “Swift got available in September as a part of the Xcode tools and in the first month only, those tools were downloaded over 11 million times.” Since its inception, Swift had been into developer’s consideration and now they can’t even think of coding without using it. Now it's high time to realize the advantage of Swift programming language and leverage it by hiring a technically well-versed swift developers to develop apps for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac etc.
