Since the start of 2015, virtually all of the iOS apps Mubaloo has created are written in Swift. Introduced with iOS 8 in June 2014 at WWDC, Apple’s developer conference, Swift is Apple’s brand new language for creating apps. Now in its second iteration, and made Open Source in December 2015, Swift is not just designed to be a simpler language, helping apps run faster and be more secure, but could also be one of the primary coding languages across other platforms in the future.
When Swift was first announced, the Mubaloo iOS team was very excited about its potential. This paper, intended for more of a technical audience outlines the 10 reasons why Swift is our language of choice.
