Apple Xcode Overview

What is Apple Xcode?

With everything you need to create amazing apps for Apple platforms, Xcode 9 is unbelievably quick and consistently smooth while editing even the largest files. It also understands your code better than ever, so you can select and edit the structure or even transform the selection directly in the editor. Powerful new refactoring tasks happen in place, renaming symbols across Swift, Objective-C, and even user interface files without skipping a beat. And with source compatibility in Swift 4, Xcode 9 uses the same compiler to build existing Swift 3 code and updated Swift 4 code, so you can migrate at your own pace.

Essential for iOS apps. Cannot perform dynamic tasks in the drag-and-drop visual system.

What is our primary use case?

App building for consumers apps and games. This requires both standard Swift libraries, as well as using SpriteKit.

How has it helped my organization?

It is really the only choice you have for coding in Swift. In the sense, you would not be able to have an iOS app without it, therefore it is essential.

What is most valuable?

Xcode has quite a bit of code error checking built-in, which is great. It also goes a step further and suggests fixes.  

What needs improvement?

There is a drag-and-drop visual system, but as soon as you do something dynamic, then you are unable to use it.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.
