  • Overall good but very sloppy

    By Elnur Abdurrakhimov
    Overall the book is good. But what I don't like about it is how sloppily it's been written. For one, it's been multiple times I've seen labs and review questions refer to concepts that haven't been introduced in the text. For instance, the chapter about loops introduced for in and while loops but a lab of that chapter expected me to know about repeat/while loops that haven't been introduced. Another example is the question about a..
  • Swift is awesome

    By DannyKeo
    Good tutorial
  • Way better than most online programming texts, but there is some strangeness.

    By mhlkjhdf
    This “book” doesn’t support text resizing. Nor does it support zoom. On an iPad, even in landscape, you can only view one page at a time, for absolutely no reason. Two pages could fit perfectly. But no. Not allowed. You can’t even zoom when viewing the book on a Mac. I really don’t understand why. Actual content is fine, but its delivery system seems a bit half baked.
  • Could easily be 5-stars

    By johnrnyquist
    This is a 5-star book that is marred by many small, easily correctable, errors. I took off one star because of the errors that should be corrected with an update, and I took off another star because the errors that are in a book that will have many new programmers as an audience (making them more egregious). If you are an experienced programmer coming to Swift, the errors will not trip you up and you’ll find this an excellent resource.
  • Best programming book I’ve ever read

    By synthetic88key
    I’ve tried to learn to program many times though the years: C++, ObjC, Java, Cocoa, etc. This is the first book that really connected. I love how you’re already building apps in like chapter 3, most other languages had me building command-line word games for most or all of the book. There are a few errors in the sample code, I had to search the web to find answers to those. But it really is an incredible resource to get started writing apps.
  • Good but not great

    By h.dale
    There is some good explanations of Swift theory but it’s hard to get the guided projects to work. I have tried to do the ToDoList project but even when copying and pasting the code directly from the book I get compliler errors and the code won’t run. In many cases it is not real clear where the code should be placed.
  • Great book LOL

  • Good until I got to Structs Section

    By Flatluent Fox
    This book was good until I got to the Structs section, now the code doesn’t work at all.
  • Must read for iOs dev

    By Adrienswift
    I am an iOs developer for 2 years now, I learnt Swift and Xcode the hard way browsing on internet, the Apple docs and Stack Overflow. I think this book is awesome for every level of developers out there, Apple are the best at what they do. I always really liked browse their documentation so it’s a real pleasure to be able to read this book made by the best. I spent 5 days to go through it, I already knew a lot about Swift and Xcode but it’s always good to read when you’re a developer and I can tell that there is simply nothing better out there to “Build an app with Swift”. Of course don’t forget to read “The Swift Programming Language” thorouglhy.
