Description

Xcode includes everything developers need to create great applications for Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Apple Watch. Xcode provides developers a unified workflow for user interface design, coding, testing, and debugging. The Xcode IDE combined with the Swift programming language make developing apps easy and fun. Xcode includes the Xcode IDE, Swift and C/C++/Objective-C compilers, Instruments analysis tool, simulators, the latest SDKs, and hundreds of powerful features: Innovative tools help you create great apps • Swift is an intuitive programming language that is safe, fast, and modern • SwiftUI is a revolutionary new framework to create user interfaces with a declarative Swift syntax • Playgrounds are a fun way to experiment and interact with Swift code • View debugging shows a 3D stack of all your app's UI view layers at runtime • Split editors in virtually unlimited ways, show previews, or choose an assistant to see related content • Live Issues display errors as you type, and Fix-its improve your code with just a click • Source control navigator and service integrations help you manage code across a team SwiftUI and Interface Builder make it easy to design your interface • SwiftUI uses declarative Swift code that clearly describes your interface • Design canvas graphically builds UI views using the library of controls and modifyers • Preview SwiftUI code or UIKit interfaces in different screen sizes, orientations, and font sizes • SwiftUI code is always in perfect sync with the graphical design canvas and previews • Animations are built using simple commands that describe the action you want to see Professional editor and debugger keep your code front and center • Refactoring makes it easy to modify the structure of Swift, Objective-C, C, and C++ code • Open Quickly instantly opens any file within your project • Data tips and Quick Look can inspect a variable by hovering your mouse over code while debugging • Third-party app extensions can add new capabilities to the source editor Test driven development is built right in • Use the Test Navigator to add, edit, or run unit tests or user interface tests with just a click • Test Assistant makes it easy to edit your code and related tests, side-by-side • Create continuous integration bots to build and test on a server Mac running Xcode Instruments for performance analysis • Compare CPU, disk, memory, and GPU performance as graphical tracks over time • Identify performance bottlenecks, then dive deep into the code to uncover the cause • Analyze your app directly, or sample the entire system with very little overhead • Create custom instruments with unique visualizations to analyze your own code and frameworks To test or run applications on an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, or Apple Watch all you need is a free Apple ID. To submit your apps to the App Store you must be a member of the Apple Developer Program. Some features may require Internet access.

Will Not Download

1
I waited for this massive 8.09 GB app to download. It took a couple hours and then got hung up on installing and would not instal. I have a brand new Mac I bought from the Apple Store just last year. This should not be happening.

Doesn't deserve the one-star reviews

Yes, there are sometimes annoying things about it, including its nearly ten gigabyte size, but for being so powerful, it certainly has great UI.

Worst Developer Tool

1
They make it unbelievably hard to do things like test apps on physical devices because of extremely volatile systems and poor documentation. There's always an error that no one understands (even on good ol Stack Overflow) or is too new to debug consistently.

Really great!

Great Team that Always Pushes Cool Updates

I've been using XCode for years, and it's awesome how there are always new features coming out. Thank you to the people who do this.

Xcode is awesome

5
Coming from Visual Studio on Windows, there are a few things I wish the Xcode team would learn from VS. However, Xcode is extremely polished and integrated. The ability to configure the interface a bit more and move the sidebars to left and right would be great for the future. Overall, Xcode is a delight to program with.

I love it!

Excellent tool for developing software

The Xcode team honestly cares about Xcode and how it works for developers. It's an easy tool to use, and gives everything needed to develop apps for every Apple product.

Free excellent development environment

Xcode is an amazing resource for software development. It pulls together everything you need: text editors, UI builders, debuggers, build system, etc. I started using it when it was Project Builder and it's never been better than it is today. I use it daily. Thank you for this awesome free tool.
