iOS Build a Simple iPhone App with Swift Getting Started with Xcode Tour of Xcode

Xcode not compiling


When I tryed to compile the app, as Pasan did, "Tutorial 2: Tour of Xcode", all that happened was that a huge black window turned up, without result. I followed your directions exactly.

Please paste your code.

It's just an empty project, but ok! Here is it:

//  ViewController.swift

import UIKit

class ViewController: UIViewController {

    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.

Have you force closed the simulator, restarted xcode, do you have the latest version? Sometimes the simulator hangs, that might the problem if you aren't getting any error codes.

Thank you!

The problem (it turned out), was only that my computer was super slow! :P! But thank you anyway ;)
