Description

Swift Playgrounds makes it fun to learn to code and build real apps. You solve interactive puzzles in the guided “Get Started with Code” and learn the basics of building apps in “Get Started with Apps.” You experiment with a wide range of challenges and samples that let you explore unique coding experiences. Swift Playgrounds doesn’t require any coding experience — it’s perfect for anyone just starting out, from eight to one-hundred-and-eight. The whole time you are learning Swift and SwiftUI, the powerful programming technologies created by Apple and used by professionals around the globe to build many of today’s most popular apps. And because it’s built to take advantage of iPad and the real iOS SDK, Swift Playgrounds provides a one of a 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 • Glossary and built-in help pages give detailed information about available commands, frameworks, and terminology Explore and Create • Interactive coding shows the results of your code instantly, alongside your work • Step through code in playground books to highlight each line as it runs • Books provide a head start to create your own playgrounds that use graphics, sound, and touch • App Gallery walks you through the building blocks of apps, like tabbed navigation and receiving input from device sensors Build Apps on iPad • Create real apps on iPad using SwiftUI • See your code changes reflected live while you type • Type quickly and accurately with inline code suggestions • Extend your app with an ecosystem of Swift packages • Navigate your code with project-wide search Smart Coding Assistance • Touch 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 • Fix common code errors with helpful inline suggestions • Stay organized with automatic code formatting Real Swift, SwiftUI, and iOS Code • Learn the same powerful Swift programming language used by the pros to create apps in the App Store • Build dynamic, elegant apps using SwiftUI, a modern way to create user interfaces • Access iOS frameworks such as SpriteKit for 2D games, SceneKit for 3D graphics, UIKit, and more • Your code has direct control of iPad hardware, including the gyroscope, accelerometer, camera, and touch events Share or Publish • Send your projects to friends and family using Messages, Mail, AirDrop, or other Share Sheet extensions • Bring your app projects to Xcode on Mac and back again • Submit your completed apps to the App Store with App Store Connect

Seemed good but...

It's buggy and unstable to a degree that I can't deal with even though it seemed fun. A bit ironic for an app that teaches coding, no?

Incredibly demotivating to young coders

I wanted to get my daughter started with programming and this was billed as the perfect environment for that. Unfortunately the implementation doesn’t follow through and choices to push newer versions of Swift and runtime environments that iPads can’t handle ruin the experience and turned my children off from technology. How do I explain to my children that the built-in samples are not only unbearably slow on our iPad Pro, that they don’t even run and trying to open them spawns dialog boxes suggesting they’ve done something wrong and need to “start over”? My kids have learned not that programming is fun, but that it’s so hard and broken that even the company that has full stack control of the hardware and software standard can’t get them to work together. If you’re going to create a programming environment for kids, spend less time on creating cute character variations and more building a bulletproof framework that is responsive and predictable with a high degree of reactive experiences. We don’t need the latest version of Swift with all the warts, we need a simple subset of the language that is minimal enough to run properly on any kind of device kids can get their hands on.

I’m not even going to bother rating this

It’s that bad. First the level divided into rows is impossible. Second if you go any farther you have to remember and type EVERYTHING. So please don’t download this garbage.

doesn’t work

Great app on Mac but the iPad version just doesn’t work. Playgrounds won’t load or run. Code won’t compile. Bizarre compatibility errors. It could be great if Apple showed it some love and fixed the bugs.

“Else if”

3
I love how this app teaches. I am stuck though, and I have no other way, I’ve seen, to contact this specific developer than rating. So hopefully I get a response. Its the beginners chapter. Its when you start using “Else if.” Its not on my bottom bar to select. I have “if” but not “else” or “else if” I also can’t type it. I am stuck. PLEEEEase help. This would be a 5 star if I could keep going!

As a teacher

I have search ways for better approaches to convey coding to children and adults. This is by far the best way. Apple should add functionality to the new lego Inventor. If Apple does that… This will be the primary way to teach robotics from 5th grade to 12th grade and beyond. Please apple hear me on that.
