This week we discuss the use of Swift in production apps. We each relate our experiences with the interactive and often difficulties working with Xcode and Swift 1.1. We also discuss the reaction to a post by Marco Arment that sparked many developers into voicing an opinion. We discuss our picks; Smash Hit, Piskell, AV Audio Engine and Printrbot Simple Metal 3D printer. During and after the show we briefly discuss Magicavoxel, Aaron’s prowess at Crossy Road, Dash and app pricing.
