  • Clean and expressive language, easy to read and write, reducing manual development efforts.
  • Simplicity and Transparency enables scaling up of easy project development.
  • PRobust bug-fixing functionality gives no room for error, making the application more friendly.
  • Allows to test code on the spot without compiling big pieces of it or creating whole app
  • Consistent changes in the newer versions of iOS, appears to be unstable. Considering of shifting projects to a newer version of Swift seems to be high.
