What is Apple Swift?
Swift is a programming language for iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS apps that builds on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, more flexible, and more fun. Swift’s clean slate, backed by the mature and much-loved Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, is an opportunity to reimagine how software development works.

REPL includes code completion.
The syntax of Swift is extremely similair to the one of Kotlin like these two programming languages are siblings who live in separate worlds. They are of different temper but cannot deny their common roots. ;) --> Who writes the first Swift / Kotlin cross-compiler? :)
