About this book

Introduction

This book builds on your knowledge of ActionScript and takes you on the fast track to developing iOS apps with Swift, Apple’s latest language. Swift’s syntax is easier to understand than Objective-C for people already familiar with ActionScript. At the same time, it offers a number of new features and richer expressiveness than either ActionScript or Objective-C.

Switching to a new platform usually involves migration on three levels: tools, workflow, and programming language. Migrating to Swift from Flash and ActionScript is structured as a guide that will help you on each level with step-by-step tutorials. Apart from the tutorials, it comes with recipes for some of the most popular mobile development topics: social network integration and messaging, taking advantage of device capabilities, networking and working with local and iCloud data, advertising in your app or game, and working with 2D and 3D graphics. The book also includes a final chapter that takes you through Apple’s App Store submission process. Don’t just build your apps, sell them.
