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 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 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.
This Application is a Beast, in size and performance. Not in a good way. This eats so much of my precious disk space on my MAC, this is not funny. I really hope Apple improves this App. By the way, XCode just took literaly 5 hours to upgrade on my MAC, I hesitated to cancel, because the download size is 12GB Which is rediculous for a dev App. So I waited. It just finished after "over" 5hrs
Stop making new features and focus on the very basic which is making XCode compile faster to run the app. Now it takes at least 10 minutes to run the app. I have to clean, build and keep trying until it runs. Ridiculous! CAN YOU SEE MY REVIEW? DON'T DELETE!
It's still buggy and cannot run my project that was running on 12.5.1. Wait till a few more versions come out in 13 before upgrading, wasted hours trying to run project on 13. Go with 12.5.1 for now.
cant even update to xcode 13. Hence 1 star. Whats the point of putting out an update and a user can't even update. There is no error messages. Indication of what is wrong or why it won't update. just shows update and you click it and nothing happens. Very stupid.
This is hands down the worst IDE I've ever used. It's slow, its massive and its unstable. I can't believe Apple made this thing.
I don't know what's with all the negative reviews, I find this IDE to be the best option for iOS development.
i hate that things is happned in there becouse is too much need to update and it not posible for as and for programmer time , nad file size is up to 20GB and apple macbooks start at 256 and also this app have more other file is not needed i hope apple fix this problem if he cant call to us for fixing.
I've used Xcode for a while. Loved it for a long time. Now, everytime I need to update it, I wait, and wait.. and wait! Then I can't use it because the app won't finish downloading the update. Had the same problem just trying to originally download the app when I got my new mac. (But had problems on the old one also) Why is it that the only app I have major issues installing updates on is the one literally made for my computer, by the company that built my computer? This needs to be fixed so I can update without losing two days of dev time.
Takes 50% of the memery and lot of time everytime I upgrade or re-install
