Apple just came out with the new programming language Swift. According to Apple, Swift will make it a lot easier and more fun to develop apps for both iOS and OS X. That's in contrast to the current language, Objective-C, which is somewhat antiquated and considered by many to be difficult to use. Although Swift is easier to use, we're sure that there will be issues like crashes, slow request, errors and so on as we already know it from Objective-C and other languages. We also know that business will ask for usage statistics. This is the reason why we immediately investigated Swift and can now show you how easy it is to add proper tracking to your app in just four steps.
Step 1: Add Lib to your Swift Project

Step 4: Run the App and Investigate the Data

Thanks to our iOS development team especially, Allen Schuerholz, for making Swift monitoring that easy and available a week after the official announcement of the new language.
