Swift Playgrounds for PC Description

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.  Lessons built-in • Apple-created lessons guide you through the core concepts of programming by using code to solve puzzles • See your code run in a beautiful, interactive 3D world that you can rotate with a finger and pinch to zoom • Animations introduce each new coding concept at a high level before you dive into the puzzles • Choose from three animated characters to carry out the steps of your code • Glossary covers a comprehensive list of common terms, or tap a word in the instructions for additional help Explore and create • Challenges encourage experimentation and creativity by playing with game logic, music, and various other themes • New challenges are released regularly to keep improving your emerging coding skills • Interactive coding shows the results of your code instantly, either beside the text or acted out in the live view • Step through your code to highlight each line as it is run • Use your own photos, images, sounds, and files within a program to make it uniquely yours • Templates are a head start to create your own programs that use graphs, graphics, touch, or a chat with the computer • Create your own playgrounds from scratch to take your coding skills to entirely new places • Reset any page to start over, or duplicate and rename any document to give a family member their own copy Built for touch • Quick Type suggestions for code are so smart you can write entire programs in just a few taps, no keyboard required • Tap and hold to grab any command and move it around to change the order of your code • Drag a brace with your finger to wrap a block of code inside a loop or conditional statement • Drag and drop snippets of commonly-used code directly into your playground • Tap a number or color in your code to display a pop-up in which to enter a new value or choose from a color picker • Amazing new coding keyboard has all the common Swift characters, just swipe to pick the alternate symbol on any key Real Swift and iOS code • Learn the same powerful Swift programming language used by the pros to create thousands of apps in the App Store • Access iOS frameworks such as SpriteKit for 2D games, SceneKit for 3D graphics, UIKit, and more • Your code has direct control of iPad hardware such as the gyroscope, accelerometer, camera, and touch events • Use Bluetooth APIs to write programs that control robots and other real-world devices with your iPad • Every concept and skill you learn directly applies when writing real apps Share • Send your creations to friends and family using Messages, Mail, AirDrop, or other Share Sheet extensions • Record a video of yourself coding or running your creation, complete with your own voice narration • Broadcast a coding session live to the world using any streaming service app that supports ReplayKit • Homework hand-in with iTunes U makes it easy to bring coding into the classroom • Turn on iCloud Drive to enable Xcode on your Mac to edit and extend the same documents that are on your iPad Swift Playgrounds requires a 64-bit iPad with iOS 10 or later, including iPad mini 2 or later, iPad Air or later, or iPad Pro


  • Awesome app for swift coding

    By subnautica555
    This app is helping me learn a LOT about swift. I’m about to get Xcode on my computer so I REALLY need to learn swift and this app is teaching me everything I need to know for Xcode. The only bug I found was that sometimes the app crashed when I wrote a really long function and a visual error where if you find one of those arched holes inside the island (where water usually comes out from) you can see clear out the other side even though the other side appears solid. I know it’s not that big of a bug, but can you please consider fixing it? I’m just paranoid that it will show up somewhere and I won’t be able to get around it. Otherwise, GREAT app.
  • IPad really?

    When I got my iPhone XS Max, I didn’t think I would ever upgrade to a new iPad from my old iPad 2. The announcement of the new iPadOS at WWDC changed that for me. So in anticipation of iPadOS I went and upgraded to an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. This was also my opportunity to try Swift Playgrounds on the iPad. I just finished Learning to Code 1, and I am seriously impressed. Although seemingly designed for kids, the App was structured very well, and had me seriously analyzing coding problems. It had me thinking hard, having fun, and learning aspects of coding that haven’t been addressed as well anywhere else. I am very happy with my choice to again add an iPad to my device list, and the Swift Playgrounds has made a huge impact in that decision. I can’t wait to go through everything associated with the Swift Playgrounds, the list is impressive. But, I am very happy I started at the beginning. I may be prepared for the release of iOS, iPadOS, and MacOS Catalina.
  • It drain the battery very fast

    By Oussk
    The app is amazing but my only issue is they drain the battery very fast specially the intro lessons where the 3D elements keep rendering all the time which makes the iPad very hot and drains the battery so it’s better to use this app when you plugged on charge
  • Okay :(

    By doo doo egg
    It keeps changing the gem counters, after i finish a code, for example, first, it's 0/1 gem to collect, now i do my code then, it turns to something like 0/3.
  • Learning

    I learned a lot fro this app!
  • Don’t download update because…

    By Chris Hong
    …New feature "Enable result" (which is enabled by default) shows neither result nor runs your code that was working in previous version.

  • Nothing works

    By Caro_608
    I downloaded swift playgrounds and I have not been able to start any of the lesson. Anything I select causes the app to go into infinite loading and eventually crashes. Please customer service help me, it’s unfortunate because I had only heard great things about playgrounds.
