Swift Playgrounds is a revolutionary app 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, or experiment with a wide range of challenges that let you explore many unique coding experiences. 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 iPadOS 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 and built-in help pages give detailed information about available commands and frameworks Explore and create • Challenges offer many new opportunities for creativity by playing with game logic, music, sensors, and more • 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 and images within a playground to make it uniquely yours • Starting points are a head start to create your own playgrounds that use graphs, graphics, touch, or 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 • QuickType suggestions let you add multiple lines of code 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 color box in your code to display a pop-up color picker • 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 iPadOS 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 playgrounds that control robots and other real-world devices with your iPad • Concepts and skills you learn directly apply 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
I like this app
This is really helping me. I’m 58 years old, and this is teaching me vividly how to do these projects. Thank you !
When I am working the program always interrupts my game and makes me start over
Swift Playgrounds is a coding software where you can learn how to code in the real world! Fun little characters like Byte, will be along with you for the best coding adventure you’ve ever had! This app actually helped me help a lot of people with coding! HOWEVER, there is a slight bug with this app, sometimes I edit the code for a task and sometimes it will crash the code, but not the app, to get rid of it you will have to press the button to stop the code and then you play the code again, however I hate doing that and I hope this bug gets fixed! Overall, I would recommend this software to anyone who needs help coding! I hope this review will give you a better understanding of the software! This is probably the best educational Apple product ever! 5 stars!⭐️
Apple Inc. thanks for Swift Playgrounds. I am now hooked onto coding in Swift. Great way to learn and master the language and it’s interactive. Congratulations on becoming the USA’s first $ 2 Trillion Company
App has a lot of potential and is fun to use, however once you get a few levels into the game it starts crashing and causes you to rewrite your codes over again.
I have a new iPad Pro. Playground gives an error that it won’t work with Swift 3.1. I am using the latest version.
I feel like I’m learning semi quickly and it’s free, what more can you ask for? Little bit childish but it’s really easy to learn and breaks down the basic concepts pretty easily. I really want to learn how to code and this seems like a great place to start! The app could use some lag fixes but overall 10/10
Dear Developer, Hi. Thank you for making this app. It really inspired me. Please make more coding games. New Series, Hamzah Keesee
This app is keep crashing every time i was typing the code. please fix it.
