Apple launches Swift Playgrounds for Mac

Apple wants to help you “learn coding the fun way”, and to do that it has Swift Playgrounds.

But the app has only been available for the iPad up until today. Apple has officially launched the Swift Playgrounds app for macOS. It’s a free app, just as it is on the iPad, and it’s a nice way to learn Apple’s Swift programming language while solving puzzles. Apple creates the lessons, and it’s a nice way to learn and experiment with code.

Swift Playgrounds requires no coding knowledge, so it’s perfect for students just starting out, from twelve to one-hundred-and-twelve. The whole time you are learning Swift, a powerful programming language created by Apple and used by professionals to build many of today’s most popular apps. Code you write works seamlessly as you move between Mac and iPad.

It’s an ideal option for students and children who want to learn how to code. As someone who’s checked out the iPad (basically in passing) app in the past, it is pretty well made and offers up a great way to learn how to code.

The app, unsurprisingly, was built using Catalyst.

The new app is available now from the Mac App Store.

Who’s going to install it and try it out?
