Swift ThoughtsSwift Thoughts

I'll admit it - when I heard developers wish for Xcode on their iPad or iPhone, I honestly didn't get it. I like to code on my computer and doing it on an iPad just doesn't sound that appealing. But last week, I saw this and immediately wanted it! I guess it's something about the reframing of a playground on the iPad vs all of Xcode that made it click.

I like the idea of using my iPad as a second screen for experimenting with Swift in a playground while coding, especially since I'm now always traveling and don't have an external monitor. Of course, IBM already has a Swift Sandbox on the web, so maybe I'll give that a try while waiting for the native app version :)
