Last night after bowling, I spent an hour watching programming tutorials on Swift, and most of the videos were 2 minutes in length. One video said that Swift is like an overlay over the OS, that takes care of memory management, garbage collection, and is pretty close to being a full blown programming Language. So it does sound like Swift is like what C Sharp is to Windows.

But it looks sort of crazy to me, where let is a const I think, opposite of JavaScript, and you declare type last, instead of first. On one hand it looks overwhelming, yet on the other it looks kindergarten to code with.

I picked out these 2 books, but haven't committed to them yet.

This is a cookbook, which might offer some useful suggestions for getting me going

And this one, to get a better overall look at IOS in general.

I'm not really looking forward to this, but oh well, here goes feet first. And I'm not jumping on the IOS app ban wagon to make money off selling apps, those days are gone with just 7 major apps being consumed by 90% of phone time use by users, so that's a tough market to beat.

Hey thanks for the suggestions and clarity on Swift versus Objective C. Hopefully I can create something my friends like and will use.
