Are you trying to get a mobile application up and running for your company? The challenges you face when trying to do this are many indeed, but the reward when you do get one is more than worth the effort you put in. The problem here is the time it takes to build an application on iOS that you can roll out to your customers in as short a time frame as possible. Ask your team when they can have an app ready and they will almost always give you a number you simply can’t work with. This is where the Ayoka Swift development services come in and save the day. Using Swift for business applications is by far the best way to deliver a powerful solution to your customers in the shortest time.

Why Use Swift Over Objective-C?

When Swift was first announced by Apple as the new standard for programming iOS applications, the coding industry was taken by surprise. Most developers predicted that it wouldn’t last. Today, it is quickly becoming the industry standard. At Ayoka, our highly skilled teams’ language of choice is Swift for business applications. If you check the training history of your own team, you may notice that most of them specialized in Objective-C instead, which was the language of choice before Swift entered the playing field. So why do the Ayoka Swift development services teams use this language instead?

  1. Better readability – one of the biggest advantages of Swift is that there is less code involved. While the code is just as complex, the readability is far better, as are the benefits and the recyclability of existing code. Companies like Lyft, which are completely mobile-based, have apps written completely in Swift. Your business could benefit from switching to Swift too, mainly because of the significant reduction in how much coding has to be done for a certain process.
  1. More reliable – When you enlist the Ayoka Swift development services to rebuild your business applications for iOS, you’re already ensuring a lack of errors in the code. However, Swift reduces the incidence of errors during the coding process by such a great amount that your app could be on its feet and ready for launch in far less time than you may have thought possible. The difference in syntax when compared to Objective-C means that the language is simply more stable and allows for far better quality control while we write your application for you.
  1. Swift is fast – At Ayoka, we specialize in a variety of programming languages, including C++, the fastest in the industry. The speed and performance of Swift are considered second only to this. Constant updates to the speed of the language by Apple ensure that our use of Swift in the development of your app will improve the front-end performance of your app on customer devices.
  1. Interactive testing is possible – Our developers believe in delivering the highest quality product to your organization. This involves an extensive testing process that improves your application significantly at the end of it all. We can test each portion of the code on its own without creating your entire app and finding an error afterward. This increases our efficiency and allows us to deliver an incredible application to you in record time. Using Swift for business applications on iOS increases our efficiency and your satisfaction!

How Using Ayoka Swift Development Services Benefits You

When you use our professional Swift programmers to aid in the construction of your application, you ensure the highest standards in the industry. One of the biggest perks of using our services is that you gain access to the best programmers in the business for a far lower cost. The reason for this is that Swift is an open-source application. We can make use of it without having to pay exorbitant prices for it, which makes it far easier to lower your prices as well.

In addition to this, you get to push updates to your customers whenever there is a change in the performance of your iOS application. Apps based on Swift can actually be linked to new updates to the language itself because of the use of dynamic libraries. We introduce an update to your app, and you put it on the App Store for your users to download. All the functions of your original app are retained, but the application itself becomes faster, less prone to crashes, and better in every way.

The Future of Swift Applications in Your Business

A final benefit of Swift for your business is diversity. In the future, you might decide to introduce an Android-based application for your customers on that platform. Swift, unlike Objective-C, isn’t completely unique to the iOS platform. Indeed, one of the main perks of the language is that it is closely related to the other languages in the programming industry. All you need to do at a time like this is call our company up and enlist our help in reusing your old Swift code to build an Android or Windows Mobile application in no time at all. Ayoka and its team of expert coders are always ready and willing to assist you!

Swift Development Services Set to Take Off

It looks like Apple is making a grab for even more mobile app mindshare with Swift. Development services centered on the innovative, open source iOS programming language are expected to be in increasing demand for 2016 and beyond. During the early release stages of this new language, Cade Metz at Wired predicted very rapid adoption for Swift, saying it is, “…a significant improvement over Objective-C—in many respects—and this means the already enormous community of iPhone and iPad developers are sure to embrace the new language in the months to come.”

Apple does have a good track record for ensuring that the community keeps up with the latest upgrades. In fact, more than 80% of users are on the most recent version of iOS8 compared to less than 15% for Android. Swift is expected to achieve a great deal of popularity in short order as developers jump at the chance to finally have an alternative to Objective-C. Generics and inferred typing are big time savers for developers, and the ease of learning the language removes a significant barrier.

What about the code itself?

According to Cade, “It compiles quickly, transforming from raw code into an executable software app, and then that app executes quickly, meaning it runs on your phone or tablet at high speed.” When iOS9 is available, the ability to develop contextual apps in Swift for iPhones and iPads will be added to the mix. At the same time, Apple is playing to an enterprise audience very heavily with an emphasis on security and reliability.

Here at Ayoka, we’re already coding in Swift to deliver the advantages of this new language for our business clients. Contact us at 817-210-4042 for your iOS app development needs.

Apple Swift 2.0 Updates Announced at WWDC15

June 9, 2015

It’s been almost a year since Apple’s release of it’s Swift language, and since then it’s been utilized by companies like LinkedIn and universities like Stanford and SMU-essentially taking the lead as a favorite among software development languages, surpassing popularity of Scala, Clojure, C#, and Python among developers. Apple’s goal was to ultimately provide a more efficient tool when creating applications and believed that less time should be spent on cumbersome implementation details.

Stack Overflow’s 2015 Developer Survey

Swift has boosted productivity by simplifying the most mundane of tasks and is really, er, swift compared to its predecessor, Objective-C. Since Swift’s update, its compiler works better with Apple’s existing SDKs, boasts error handling functionality, syntax improvements, whole module optimization, and Apple has announced that it will be open source and offer ports for OSX, iOS, and Linux. Mac OSX was the operating system of choice for 22% of respondents of the 2015 Stackoverflow Developer Survey, taking the middle spot between Microsoft’s Windows 7, favored by 39%, and Linux’s 21%.

Development in Swift ensures that the application-centric infrastructure in iOS can be easily maintained while preserving scalability, secure data handling and access to business information through applications optimized for the enterprise and their corporate policies. The new features and syntax are well-received and bring a lot to the development table through support for their iOS, OSX, and watchOS. Stephen O’Grady, co-founder of Red Monk, points out that Swift “gives Apple the framework for developers it hasn’t had before. Historically the developer experience has been very locked down,” adding that the open-source licensing proves a strong indication of how Apple wants to include and “interact with developers.”

Swift Taking the Front Seat in Mobile Development

June 10, 2014

Apple Swift IconSince Swift’s unveiling last week at Apple’s WWDC, a plethora of learning information has been released by Apple along with other authors and developers. The Swift Programming Language is available with iBooks on the Mac or iOS device, and through iTunes.

If you missed the conference, Swift is a programming language optimized for mobile that builds on the fundamentals of C and the widely used Objective-C without what Apple described as ‘constraints’ of C compatibility. It’s the new language for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch, the frameworks for building software on iOS and it’s readily compatible with existing Objective-C code. Swift takes the best parts of C and Objective-C, like flow control and operators, and takes object-oriented features like classes, to give developers the environment they need to program their best applications without needing to relearn a whole new language. Swift’s inferred types make code clean and easy to read while being less error-prone, memory is automatically managed, modules eliminate headers and even provide namespaces, one can even name emoticons as variables. You can see your program come to life in the interactive playground, or watch your loop progress with the timeline assistant.

Swift has been ready for implementation since its announcement and, again, is readily compatible with existing applications written in Objective-C. You can begin integration now and have applications ready for release with iOS8 and Apple’s new OS, Yosemite. Xcode6 is in beta and available for download for free, while tutorials for integration of Swift with Cocoa and Cocoa Touch are also available!
