April 30, 2016

SWIFT has captured a large number of iOS App market within just 22 months of its first release. This open source of Apple has gained popularity among iOS developers very rapidly because it has overcome the main flaws of Objective C and made developers free from Null Pointers, Header Files by using Use of ARC for Auto Memory Management, Dynamic Libraries, inline Error Handling and many more.

Swift will not only outweigh Objective-C when it comes to developing Apps for the Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and devices to come, but it will also surpass C for embedded programming on Apple platforms. That’s why future of iOS is Swift for creating entrancing, sociable, consumer-facing applications for years to come. It’s high time to shift to the more approachable, full-featured Swift from Objective C for iOS App.

Do you know you are programming in SWIFT for your iOS App on Configure.IT?

It’s a huge surprise for all the respected users of Configure.IT that from 2nd May, 2016 they would be able to download the source code of their App in SWIFT instead of Objective C. All the current Apps will be converted to SWIFT so user need not to touch anything to replace the language.
