We are using Swiftify to migrate from obj-C to swift and so far it was pretty useful. Won't say 100% works but it does the job. With some small reviews, we were able to use our code again. Pretty useful.
  • Helps to prevent redoing the whole code.
  • Sometimes it is hard to find the exact command of Obj-C in swift.
  • It helped me to learn more :)
  • The price is a bit high and not very affordable for small companies.
For me as a picky person I never used the file convertor but for a small portion of code, it is good. With the classes that have more than one initializer, it got confusing and I had to dig to find the exact issue to fix.

Swiftify is used in the development department to create new iOS apps for our company. At this moment, our developers have knowledge about Objective-C and not Swift. Apple just released the new version of the Swift language, Swift 5, and our team needed to convert the actual code they're developing to this new language. Converting an entire Xcode project from Objective-C to Swift is really complicated, but with Swiftify everything changed.
  • Put in your Objective-C code, select the version of Swift language to convert, click convert. That's all!
  • Swiftify is now creating a platform to convert Objective C to #C, something that can help for different development projects platforms.
  • Swiftify offers a few free converts to try to show you the power of it. Their price for a subscription plan is really good for big projects.
  • New conversion languages, like Python or C++ would be great.
  • Some more free tries would help to know how important/helpful it would be for iOS projects.
Apple releases iOS system versions every year, and it is necessary to check all the code of a developer app to change, correct or edit some deprecated code or new things. This is where Swiftify comes in to help convert from different versions of Swift, not only Objective-C. You can choose to convert a past version of Swift to a new one. You save a lot of time using Swiftify.
I don't have any problems with the platform. I like that their email responses are fast.

Swiftify helped us greatly in refactoring our legacy iOS applications and porting from Objective-C to Swift.
  • Good at Objective-C to Swift project conversion
  • Helps with Objective-C code refactoring
  • Has a decent app with automated conversion
  • It lacks general performance and availability
  • It doesn't handle Objective-C macro well
  • Overall conversion speed expected to be much better
Swiftify is well suited for porting of really old legacy Objective-C projects to Swift. The simpler the project - the better, 'cause it doesn't handle macro well.
Swiftify is good converter, there's a room for imrovement, but it helps a lot.

Swiftify has been used for the last [few] months by the mobile team, specifically by the iOS developer (me).

I'm currently working on projects that require Objective-C and Swift, so Swiftify is really useful to optimize this process. It is quite easy to use, just need to implement it in XCode and then just select the code and the option "Convert selection to Swift".

Specifically when I need to create a new Swift class and I need to use already existing code on Objective C, I use to convert it first with Swiftify, so I can save some time in the process.
  • Implemented on XCode as an editor option
  • Fast and precise, compared to competitors
  • Helps you in your development
  • It converts from Objective-C to Swift but not from Swift to Objective-C.
  • The conversion is not perfect, does not always work right.
  • The conversion should provide suggestions, as the code could be converted in many different ways.
It is recommended to use Swiftify in any situation that requires iOS development because even if you develop just in Swift or just in Objective-C, it could be helpful for researching and investigating purposes.

Additionally, if you need to convert big quantities of code from Objective-C to Swift, this tool will optimise that work. It will not translate a whole class of 2000 lines perfectly, but after converting it you can review the code and modify the lines that have not been properly converted, making you save more than the 50% of the time in that case.

I've not been able to test it properly as I only used the trial version and it is really limited.

We primarily use it to convert Objective-C to Swift. Conversion doesn't always make sense for some codes, but it's a great first pass and does save a great amount of time.
  • It's especially good for people that know Swift, but have very little experience with Objective-C. It gives you a first cut of code translation. Then you can go from there.
  • Sometimes the conversion doesn't make much sense. The Swift conversion doesn't compile, or is not optimized.
Well suited for any level of developers with any level of experience as it gives a nice first pass conversion and saves a lot of time.
There are constant upgrades to improve the conversion.
