PARIS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 10, 2015 — FINALCAD today announces the release of its mobile app created entirely with Apple’s Swift programming language.
Since 2011, FINALCAD has been on a mission to digitally transform the construction industry. From its inception, FINALCAD has trusted iOS to empower this transformation, through iPad and iPhone devices used on the field.
After the new programming language Swift was introduced by Apple at WWDC 2014, the iOS development team at FINALCAD embraced Swift for its performance, versatility and compatibility with legacy Objective-C.
“FINALCAD end-users will immediately benefit from Swift through a more robust app and a more reactive UI” said Antoine Favreau, CTO, FINALCAD. “Moreover, the versatility of Swift will allow us to deliver new features and behaviours in a fraction of the time it used to take.”
“The adoption of Swift sets a milestone in the evolution of the FINALCAD iOS app. This new app is poised to handle the complexity and scale of the largest construction projects worldwide, while keeping the ease of use that made the popularity of FINALCAD”, said Jimmy Louchart, President and co-founder at FINALCAD.
