@remino Yes, that's true. Especially those new to programming will find it a lot easier than Objective-C. The senior iOS devs in our company seem to love Swift a lot, and all new apps we start developing will be written with Swift.
@remino I have made updates to an app written in Swift. In my opinion it gets way too much crap thrown at it, it's just a programming language that get shit done. People just love to have an opinion on everything Apple does.
