Ever since Swift became open source, there is a lot of frenzy surrounding it and every mobile application development company has focussed its energy and resources towards working on interesting and dynamic new apps powered by Swift. Read on to learn some of the most interesting features of Swift.

Structs can be extended in Swift

We love that Swift allows for structs to be extended; we use it for adding functionality to an already existing structure. Literals too can be extended in Swift and the developer community is welcoming the extension feature with open arms.

Swift allows for a safer use of Collections

While the Syntax and functionality are similar to the Generics in Objective C, Collections are much safer and more easily understood in Swift as collections can be defined with specific types here. Not only is this a much cleaner approach, but it also helps catch errors during compile time rather than the run time.

Strings are way cleaner in Swift

Strings are often found to be notoriously difficult to deal with in Objective-C by most developers while in Swift; it is not only simpler, but cleaner as well not to mention the additional comparison feature.

The Switch statement in Swift is drastically better than its Objective-C counterpart

The Switch statement is yet another improvement when it comes to a comparison between Swift and Objective –C and most developers agree that the Switch for Strings is a most welcome addition in Swift.

The much welcome initialization safety angle

Apart from having to explicitly handle the nil case, Swift also has initialization safety – if a member is not initialized after the initialize block, Swift won’t proceed to build your app! This would save a lot of time and debugging for developers and this again is welcomed by all dedicated mobile app developers.
