Apple on Monday updated its Swift Playgrounds app for the iPad. Version 2.2 brings a number of improvements, including improved access to third-party content, more precise touch gestures, and more.
• Third-party content is easy to discover and download for free directly within the app
• Touch gestures for selecting code are more precise and easier to use
• What’s Next is smarter about suggesting new playgrounds for you to try
• On-screen keyboard shows and hides more predictably
• Additional bug fixes and performance improvements
In addition, the “What’s Next” feature is now smarter about suggesting new playgrounds for users to try, and the on-screen keyboard has been fixed so that it shows and hides more predictably. And of course, the update offers the ever-popular “bug fixes and performance improvements.”
Swift Playgrounds is designed to teach kids and adults how to program apps via a series of entertaining lessons.
Swift Playgrounds is a revolutionary app for iPad that makes it fun to learn and experiment with code. You solve interactive puzzles in the guided “Learn to Code” lessons to master the basics of coding, while additional challenges let you explore code and create programs that are engaging and unique.
Swift Playgrounds requires no coding knowledge, so it’s perfect for students just starting out, from twelve to one-hundred-and-twelve. The whole time you are learning Swift, a powerful programming language created by Apple and used by professionals to build many of today’s most popular apps. And because it’s built to take full advantage of iPad and the real iOS SDK, Swift Playgrounds is a first-of-its-kind learning experience.
Swift Playgrounds is free, and is available for the iPad in the App Store. [GET IT HERE]
