What is Swift?
Native iOS app development relies heavily on the power of the programming language Swift. Swift is an intuitive programming language developed and released by Apple in 2014. It gained popularity quickly and steadily replaced Objective-C as the primary programming language for macOS, iOS, tvOS, and watchOS.
Our iOS app development team members are experts in Swift. When we develop apps for Apple products, Swift is the programming language we choose because it is:
Apple holds apps on the App Store to a very high standard. Apple expects all apps to have a quality User Experience and User Interface. These are important facets of Apple’s brand identity. By holding all digital and physical products to a high standard of excellence, Apple has created one of the most coveted and popular brands in the world.
With a custom iOS app, your business will be able to reach a significant number of people around the world and offer them your products, services, and expertise through some of the most popular devices in the tech industry.
The Benefits of Swift
UX/UI-Driven App Development
Apple’s App Store is a UX/UI-driven environment. If you want to be successful with iOS users, you need a UX/UI-driven iOS app. At Koombea, our team of iOS developers uses Swift to create high-quality User Interface elements and deliver stunning User Experiences.
We firmly believe in adopting and utilizing the latest technologies in order to deliver the highest quality products possible to our partners. Swift is a major technical advancement from the C-based programming languages C#, C++, and Objective-C. It is ideal for iOS development because it was created specifically for Apple platforms based on the latest research into programming languages.
Like your business, Swift is always evolving and improving. We choose Swift because it is an open-source programming language with a large community of contributing developers both inside and outside of Apple. The large open-source community behind Swift helps power new advancements in the capabilities of the language as well as offers support and tracks bug issues.
Apple is constantly innovating and releasing new products that consumers love to use. They never sit still when it comes to UX and UI. If you want to create an iOS app that keeps up with Apple’s pace of development, Swift is the only programming language that can handle the task. That is why our developers use Swift and constantly stay up to date with the latest development builds.
Built with Safety in Mind
Digital security is a major concern for everyone these days. Security breaches are bad for business. Not only do they hurt your brand image and reputation, but they can expose valuable business information and the sensitive information of your customers to bad actors. Swift is safe.
The security of your app begins with the source code. Swift has eliminated entire classes of unsafe code in an effort to create a safe programming language. Undefined behaviors and developer mistakes are the two most common sources of unsafe code.
Our team of developers works with safety and security at the forefront of every app development project. That is why we choose Swift for iOS apps. Swift eliminates undefined behaviors, automatically manages memory, checks arrays and integers for overflows, initializes variables before use, and enforces exclusive access to memory guards.
Swift’s safety features help ensure that any mistakes made in development are caught early in the process before production begins. We understand how important security and safety are to your organization. Security and safety are very important to us too. That is why our team chooses to use Swift for iOS development projects.
Harness the Power of iOS
The only way to fully harness the power and performance of the native features present in Apple devices is to use Swift. Swift code can be used on the wide variety of popular Apple devices, including the iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and of course, the iPhone.
However, in order to fully integrate your iOS app across the ecosystem of Apple devices and deliver quality UI/UX experiences that meet consumer expectations on every device, you need industry experience and expertise. We have both experience and expertise.
Our team has been building world-class iOS apps for more than a decade. We have experience building iOS apps and seamless cross-device experiences for the entire Apple family of products using Swift. We take great pride in the quality of our work, and we rigorously test all of the iOS apps we develop using Apple’s TestFlight so you can be sure of the quality of our work.
Popular Apps Made with Swift
Most native iOS apps are written in Swift. Here is a list of popular iOS apps that were created using the power of Swift:
