Xcode provides everything developers need to create great applications for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Xcode has unified user interface design, coding, testing, and debugging all within a single window. The Xcode IDE analyzes the details of your project to identify mistakes in both syntax and logic, it can even help fix your code for you.
Xcode includes the Xcode IDE, LLVM compiler, Instruments, iOS Simulator, the latest OS X and iOS SDKs, and hundreds of powerful features:
Innovative tools to help you create great apps
• Interface Builder is fully integrated as a design canvas within the Xcode IDE
• The Assistant shows files related to what you're editing, such as the header, superclass, or a UI preview
• The Version editor shows a live source code comparison through Git or Subversion history
• Live Issues display errors as you type, and Fix-it can correct the mistakes for you
Streamlined interface that is faster and easier to use
• Design your interface side by side with the backing source code
• Create connections from your GUI design directly to the related source code
• Schemes let you customize exactly how your app will build, run, profile, and deploy
• Quick Look variables while debugging to visualize colors, bezier paths, and images
Professional editor keeps you focused on your code
• Click the Jump Bar at the top of the editor to instantly go to another file
• Hit a few keys and Open Quickly will open any file within your project
• View message bubbles to see errors, warnings, and other issues right beside the code
Embedded Apple LLVM technology finds and fixes bugs for you
• Analyzer travels countless code paths looking for logical errors before they become bugs
• Live Issues underlines coding mistakes as you type with no need to build first
• Fix-it can confidently correct mistakes for you with just a keystroke
Test driven development made simple
• Use the Test Navigator to add, edit, or run tests with just a click
• Test Assistant makes it easy to edit your code and related tests, side-by-side
• Create continuous integration bots for OS X Server 3.0 to automatically build and test your apps.
Instruments for visual performance analysis
• Compare CPU, disk, memory, and OpenGL performance as graphical tracks over time
• Identify performance bottlenecks, then dive deep into the code to uncover the cause
• Monitor your app directly, or sample the entire system, with very little overhead
To test or deploy applications on an iOS device you must be a member of Apple's iOS Developer Program. To submit your Mac or iOS apps to the App Store you must be a member of the Mac or iOS Developer Program. Continuous integration features require OS X Server 3.0 on Mavericks. Some features may require Internet access.
What's New in Version 5.1
Includes SDKs for OS X 10.9 Mavericks, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, and iOS 7.1.
• Adds new Auto Layout constraint inspector with support for all constraint types.
• Adds Quick Look support in the debugger for custom object types.
• Improves ability to resolve symbols in Instruments.
• Updates the iOS standard architecture setting to include 64-bit.
• Includes additional bug fixes and stability improvements.
Great IDE but has one really annoying glitch
Xcode is easily the best IDE I’ve ever used by a long shot. I’d REALLY like to give it 5 stars but there’s one problem that’s driving me crazy. When editing .storyboard files, if you pan all the way to the right and then pan a little more to the right (to activate the rubber band stretch thing) and release, the current panning position jumps randomly to the middle of the file. It’s really annoying and it happens all the time since I need to check if there’s anything to the right of a view controller. Please fix this and I will update this review ASAP with a 5 star review.
Can’t build… awesome
I can’t really figure out what happened but I can’t build my app after updating to this version. The specific error I’m getting is related to using static cells in a table view that is not in a table view controller. I never got this error before and don’t know why I started getting it now. Anyway the offending view controllers are never used in my app so I just removed them from the storyboard. This allows the app to run but a lot of the other views look all messed up. I looked at the release notes and cannot see why this would be happening. Anyway, just take care when updating to this version.
One of the Best Programming Tools
Xcode has been great to use.
It’s a large improvement over Eclipse and simplifies the workflow from Visual Studio.
Sometimes there are bugs that get in the way, but Apple has been pretty good at updating the app to fix things.
