How to make your first “Hello World!” program in Swift

Our 1st program is : How to make your first “Hello World!” program in Swift.

Like any other language we are going to start our first program by printing or showing “Hello World!”

All you need to make iOS app is knowledge of Objective C or Swift and a Mac with Xcode installed. You can download Xcode from app store. And it will be found later in your application folder or you can search it in spotlight.

  1.  Open Xcode it will look like this. Then select “Create new Xcode project”.
