All Swift Titles
Swift is a new language from Apple, designed from the ground up for iOS and OS X app development. It has inherited the best of Objective-C, but it’s as easy to learn as Python or Ruby, and it comes with Playgrounds in Xcode, so you can test your code as soon as you write it. Apress has a full complement of books on Swift development, from “Hello World” to design patterns.
