You’ll also learn user interface design principles, which are fundamental to programming and making great apps. Prior programming experience is not required for this course. If you have programming experience, you can move through the early lessons quickly as you continue to learn about software development tools, concepts, and best practices that go beyond programming fundamentals.


  • Needs update

    By Deadended
    Some of the chapters are useless with new updates to Xcode, Lesson 17 involves using features that are not in the current version of Xcode. I’m trying to find my way around these problems.
  • Feature

    By Demetrice20
    Can use all of the feat and I have an iPhone 8 Plus
  • Why I can not download it ?

    By ProblematicNeon
    Download stops at the middle.
  • Incompatible with Swift 4

    By Lorring
    The exercises and accompanying files contain numerous incompatibilities with Swift 4 and the latest versions of Xcode. Working through the exercises and the book requires sifting through countless support discussions and YouTube videos in which new learners have taken it upon themselves to figure out and solve the bugs. Bless them for their invaluable help, but it is really a shame that these tutorials haven’t been removed until Apple updates them.
  • Intro to App Development with Swift

    By Lszmidt
    Started out great, however, later in the book the version of Swift 4.0 and the book are not in sync. There were compiler errors that didn’t have solutions. I am using Swift 4.0 on Xcode 9.2 with an Mac on 10.13.2. The author needs to update his book.
  • Not updated

    By Franciscomgonzalez
    This was a great tool. Howerver, it has not been updated for the latest version of swift (not a big deal but it should be updated)

  • Not accurate

    By Programmer Variable
    It's outdated, xcode 9 has been released.
  • Very Introductory...

    By TylerC101
    This is extremely introductory, for people who have never programmed before. If you're experience in other programming languages do not start here, go on to the "App Development with Swift" book in the same series. For those inexperienced with programming this book is really clearly written and step by step. I think a lot of the complaints about the book are valid, there are some editing issues and a one time the provided code used some antiquated functions or predefined variables which is really problematic for someone new but I was able to fix without experience in swift. If you get some weird error like this don't sweat it and move on. You'll rarely understand everything the first time anyway, so when you see it later it will make more sense. Since it's a free resource a strong 5/5, if I had paid for it I would have lowered it to 4/5 or 3/5 because of relatively low level of editing/proofreading.
  • Great but has some mistakes

    By BlueMasterFX
    I like that Apple is writing their own instruction manual for Swift and honestly believe the language is great. I already was familiar with other programming languages and I didn’t run into too much trouble. However, the book has some problems. There are grammical errors, spelling mistakes, as well as a wrong answer to certain questions being asked. Not sure how that went through. I also do feel that there needs to be more explanation to certain things. Hopefully a revision is in the works
