Xcode is a powerful tool for creating Mac OS and iOS apps. Developed by Apple, it puts several programming languages and programming models in a single platform, making it easy for developers to create applications with multiple architectures and characteristics.
Wve Labs works with Xcode and many other tools to create responsive, attractive apps for web and mobile. When you work with us on a project, we'll draw from these resources to ensure your finished product works great, looks great and runs on a lean platform that keeps memory use to a minimum.
Apple released the first version of Xcode in 2003. Based on the older Project Builder development environment, Xcode boasted an easy-to-use graphic interface, distributed build support and other unique benefits.
Xcode 10.1 is the current iteration of the platform. This version, released in October 2018, features improved testing and debugging capabilities, support for Dark Mode and other new features, and changes to the way the editor displays certain activities.
Programming languages supported by Xcode include:
As well, third-party add-ons now support GNU Pascal, Free Pascal, Ada and other languages.
There are several reasons why developers prefer Xcode when working on projects in Mac OS and iOS, such as:
Our team uses Xcode for a wide range of development projects — including iPhone, iPad, iPod and Mac apps — using Objective-C and Swift programming languages. Unless you're really into the technical details, however, the main thing you need to know is that these tools allow us to find creative solutions to the challenges that would otherwise affect your product's usability.
Wve Labs is based in Los Angeles and has been providing Xcode app development since 2015. We pride ourselves on offering the best of both worlds — the resources and expertise of a large firm and the one-on-one attention of a boutique developer. It's this commitment to excellence that makes us the choice of established companies and ambitious startups alike.
