Swift Playgrounds is updated adding important new features

Unlike what happens with other Apple applications, the guys from Cupertino seem to have forgotten about the Swift Playgrounds application, that application aimed at the smaller public so that they learn to program from a young age, in a clear way, simple and with a large number of examples to make understanding easier.

Swift Playgrounds 2.0 introduces a new feature that allows users to subscribe to third-party content providers, in addition to those that Apple already offers natively since this application launched, so we will receive notifications every time a creator adds new content to the platform, avoiding that we have to enter the application to check it.

This update also includes support for new robots like IBM's TJBot and Mekamon, a new gallery that will show us all the available content, both our own and that of third parties, so that we can easily access them by clicking on them. Another novelty is found in the new Locations button, with which we can access the playgrounds from the Files application on the iPad, the documentation of the iOS functions and commands that until now were only available through the button. Help and tools menu.

It shows that the Apple developer community is still a very important part of Apple And with this application, you want the little ones to begin to be interested in creating games or applications for any platform, not only for Apple. Swift Playgrounds 2.0 is available for download for free through the link that I leave at the end of this article. It requires at least iOS 10.3 to work and is only available for the iPad, so do not bother looking for it from the iPhone, if this Apple programming platform has finally caught your attention.
