iOS Build a Simple iPhone App with Swift 2.0 Improving Our User Interface Changing the Background Color

is view.backgroundColor = blueColor not enough?

Hey guys,

I thought I was doing well here but somehow can't move forward.

Can you please explain?

Thank you

class ViewController: UIViewController {

let blueColor = UIColor.blueColor

view.backgroundColor = blueColor

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.

    override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
        // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated

You just need to move the view.backgroundColor = blueColor line into your viewDidLoad() method, and you should be fine.
