Apple’s Swift Playgrounds has been available for the last four years on iPad, but you can finally download it on your Mac as well, to learn code in a fun way.
If you’re looking for a fun way to learn and experiment with code or you’d like to encourage your kids to do so, Apple has finally decided to bring its Swift Playgrounds app to Mac. The app – available since 2016 on iPad only – is now available to download, filled with guided “Learn to Code lessons to help anyone 12+ master coding basics and explore various coding experiences. No, you won’t need any previous coding knowledge beforehand.
On Swift Playgrounds, you will be learning Swift, the programming language created by Apple, and which is used by professional developers to create many of the apps that are out there today. As an app, it will take you from “zero to hero,” letting you get a great intro to Swift and what you can do with it.
But that’s not all. If you’re willing to take your Swift coding skills to the next level, you can use Xcode to develop your own app and publish it to the App Store as well. You will have access to a range of different resources and frameworks to make this happen.
Sure, you could always start a proper Swift course, but that wouldn’t be this much fun now, would it?
