How Can Swift Boot Help My Business?
We have prepared answers to some of the most common questions asked about Swift software development:
Is Swift a good choice for mobile development?
For years Objective-C had been a go-to language for iOS application development. However, this trend changed when Apple introduced Swift. While Kotlin is much more concise compared to Java, Swift outshines Objective-C in almost every way. When using Swift, developers write less code but do more. Less code means faster implementation of features, which results in faster delivery of the app. In addition to that, developers can use the saved time specifically on client’s needs, ensuring high quality of the final product. We all know that performance is key. Swift compiles fast due to a Low-Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) compiler. Furthermore, Swift consumes less memory than Objective-C. Various performance benchmarks show that Swift often reaches C++ levels of calculation speed. That’s lightning fast! All in all, Swift outdoes Objective-C in almost every aspect of iOS application development. It provides modern development tools, and ensures painless, fast mobile app development.
Can you use Swift for Android development?
Even though Swift is a language dedicated to iOS app development, a set of powerful tools allows utilizing Swift to create Android apps with a truly native feel. If you’re looking for an alternative to Kotlin, Swift might be your best bet. SCADE is a cross-platform mobile development platform, which compiles Swift to native machine code on both iOS and Android. The resulting executables run fast and native on iOS and Android. Technically speaking, SCADE uses the Apple Swift compiler, which follows the concept of three-phase design. In short, a single codebase is compiled into two separate chunks of machine code. One for Android, and one for iOS, respectively. Those chunks are then transformed into executables, which run on corresponding operating systems. Developers write code only once, and simultaneously build the app for two platforms, which increases productivity and decreases development time, making Swift a promising cross-platform alternative to Kotlin.
Which apps have been built using Swift?
Almost unanimously thought of as the best choice for iOS mobile application development, Swift finds use in a wide variety of mobile applications available on the market. Swift’s highly effective and cutting-edge technology has been used in the official Firefox iOS app. Firefox is one of the most popular internet browsers, and thanks to Swift, a robust version for iOS is available for all Apple device owners. The globally famous brand LinkedIn has also used Swift to build and maintain an impressive platform. Moreover, Swift is one of the languages used in development of WhatsApp – an app that needs no introduction. Pretty much everyone switched to Swift as the first-choice iOS development platform. Why don’t you?
Is Swift good for e-commerce?
Let’s imagine you would like to buy something. You open your online shopping app, and log in. You see a stunning and intuitive user interface. You have no problem finding what you like thanks to the clear interface, and search field feature. Once you decide to buy something, you can choose one of many available payments options. You don’t have to worry about the safety of your data and money. Everything is smooth and secure. That’s Swift. Swift offers a myriad of templates and features that facilitate development of a shopping app. Achieving a modern, elegant look and flawless UI is a piece of cake with Swift. Furthermore, Swift easily integrates with most popular payment systems. Be it PayPal or Stripe – Swift ensures full compatibility and seamless integration. Security is of utmost importance in application development, so every new version of Swift is even more secure and less prone to vulnerabilities. A language that takes away most security and UI concerns, Swift allows developers to think client-first.
