Apple launches Swift Playgrounds app for the Mac, built using Catalyst

March 2, 2020

Apple is trying to encourage kids to learn programming through its Swift Playground app for Mac and iPad.

 

In the app description, Apple said it is made for people with no prior knowledge of coding:

“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 teaching Swift, a powerful programming language created by Apple and used by professionals to build many of today’s most popular apps. Code you write works seamlessly as you move between Mac and iPad.”

 
 
 

All you need to do is to download Xcode to learn coding in Swift.

 

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. Because of the Catalyst project, you can also use a single file across Mac and iPad.

 

Like Swift Playgrounds for ‌iPad‌, Swift Playgrounds for Mac is designed to provide exercises and challenges to help users learn the basics of coding. The app requires no coding knowledge to use and is ideal for students who are just starting out with coding.
