iOS is known as a go-to mobile platform and is dominating several key markets across the world. When it comes to iOS app development, Swift is widely preferred. This is a universal and powerful programming language created by Apple as a great alternative to Objective C. Since its release back in 2014, the language has come a long way from being a highly controversial and criticized to becoming the most popular programming language. Developers of Appinventiv have expertise and functional knowledge to build custom swift apps that are highly secure, robust as well as engaging that can effectively meet your objectives.
Some remarkable benefits of Swift
Swift is faster
Swift apps are fast and you can't ignore the fact that for a customer-facing app, a minor difference in speed is the most important element that can make or break the project. On the other hand, if there is a need to handle heavy computations or the product has complicated business logic, speed becomes even more crucial. This is when Swift become the foremost choice because as per the official information published by Apple, Swift is more than 2.6 times faster than Objective C.
When you use Swift for ios app development, then you can use advanced error handling in order to avoid typical mistakes that takes place in Objective C. Some errors in Objective C may go unnoticed which in future can lead to unpredicted system behavior, whereas flaws in the Swift code become visible and can be removed immediately.
Open source ecosystem
Open-source status means that there are several free tools, frameworks and libraries and thus, you can speed up mobile app development and can also save a lot of time as well as money. Hence, this is a very cost-effective language for startups as well as small scale enterprises.
Swift requires less code which means legacy and reduced cost of maintenance. Due to its compact language nature, there is a need of less code in order to write repetitive statements without compromising the functionality and performance.
Great corporate support
Many people are not aware of the fact that Apple is not the only big name behind Swift in fact, IBM has recently been very active in numerous research areas associated with Swift. The company is working with the motive to bring the language to the cloud. In addition, there are innumerable tools in the IBM ecosystem, integrated with Swift. Currently, IBM Swift package catalog has over 1,500 client and server-side packages, which have grown by 400% in just six months.
Playgrounds allow you to write a line of code and instantly see the result. This means that there is no need to build the project and then run the emulator in order to test it. Hence, you can easily experiment with something.
Swift creators are moving forward so as to turn this coding language into a giant. By witnessing all the above-mentioned advantages, there is no exaggeration in saying that Swift is undoubtedly a better choice for apps based on iOS mobile app development platform.
