Mac Developer: Apple making sparse use of Swift in its own apps, engineer claims
Apple making sparse use of Swift in its own apps, engineer claims The Calculator app is the only part of iOS 9.2 that includes any Swift code, Ryan Olson noted in a blog post. It is at least said to be nearly "pure" Swift, with only two of 22 classes written in Apple's previous favorite language, Objective-C.
An immature language with no stable ABI? What's not to love? This language is for novices. One day, it will be for engineers.
Just to be clear, it's not the only new language with problems. I abandoned my experiments with Scala after I discovered the compiler couldn't parse a very simple and valid operator overloading construct. I'm sure there is someone out there who is excited to debug the compiler of a new language. My priorities lie elsewhere.
