Nowadays, swift is one of the most fussing topic across the internet. For those who are not interested in iOS application development swift may not seem worthy of . But on the other hand those who are into iOS application development it will be worth taking a look at it.
What is Swift?
Swift is a multi-paradigm complied programming language, which is created mainly for iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS development by Apple Inc. In other words immersive, responsive and secure applications for different platforms can be created using this robust programming language. Swift is more flexible and safer than Objective-C.
Swift has attained much popularity among the iOS application developers because of the major set of functionalities possessed by it. The main reasons are it is,
- Open source.
- Ease of usage compared to Objective-C.
- Writing code is fun and interesting.
- Code can be written quickly.
Key Benefits of Swift
Privacy , security and trust are the three major factors that are considered superior to all other factors in an enterprise application development. Apart from helping in building secure applications , the enterprise application development is made flexible by swift in the following ways,
Swift is considered as a multi-faceted language that allows developers to develop all types of apps right from commonly used enterprise application to advanced low power apple watches.
Apple has become developer friendly by making the swift open source, this is considered as a big move by Apple Inc. Earlier, software framework Microsoft .Net an open source platform is widely used for enterprise application development. Efficient enterprise apps on latest version of iOS have been developed by developers because of the open sourcing of core libraries. This results in enhanced employee productivity and streamlined business process.
Reduction in initial app size
Generally ,enterprise applications consumes huge amount of time to load as they are bigger in size. As dynamic libraries are directly loaded in memory the initial size of the application can be greatly reduced. Dynamic libraries has been supporting the development of iOS since the launch of Swift and iOS8. The usage of dynamic libraries resulted in increased employee efficiency.
Some of the other key benefits are,
- Prominence to contextual apps.
- Integrated with memory management.
- Prompt feedback from quick and interactive coding.
