Apple Launches New Mac App To Help Learn Programming Basics


Apple has launched a new Mac app the “Swift Playground app” to help you learn programming basics

According to 9to 5Mac, the Swift Playground app is made in Catalyst which is Apple’s program to make it easier for developers to write one app for Mac and iPad.

“Swift Playgrounds require 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. The code you write works seamlessly as you move between Mac and iPad.” Apple said while describing the app.

According to them, the app is made for people without the knowledge of coding. You can also download the Xcode to learn the coding in Swift. For learners, Apple’s new app has made it easier for you to learn to program.

For those who do not know, the Swift Playground app mostly uses drag and drop action of ready and commonly-used code snippets to make you familiar with concepts of computer programming. This is because when using the Catalyst project, you can also use a single file across Mac and iPad.

According to the company, it originally launched the app on iPad in 2016 with an aim to encourage kids to learn to program.
