What is iOS Development?
48 sec read
Swift is the language used to make apps for iPhone, iPad, and Mac OSX (desktop) apps.
Why Swift? Well, You don’t really have a choice. Apple decided that part for you. The rule is: if you want to make an iPhone app, and get it into the Apple Store, then you’re going to have to develop it using Apple’s Swift programming language.
Before you start learning Swift, ask yourself: do you really need your project to be an iPhone app? If not, a prototyping tool might be the quickest way for you to develop a Minimum Viable Product. My first choice for iPhone prototyping would be Keynotopia, but also there are some great questions to check out over at Quora.
