Xcode reviews and compare

Xcode is an integrated development environment for macOS containing a suite of software development tools developed by Apple for developing software for macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

Cons

  • Massive download file!
  • It's no longer free (still not much to pay, this would be a point if it was upwards of £/$50
  • less third party support / tutorials for beginners.
  • Something new to learn

Pros

  • Single window - trying to find all the windows can become a nightmare in v3
  • New debugger
  • auto fixes common errors in code - displays errors straight away
  • navigators and jump bar make finding things easier.
