AppCode 3.0.6 update is available now

Anastasia Kazakova

Hello everyone,

Today we are making AppCode 3.0.6 available. In this build we’ve fixed a couple of major problems with Xcode 6 and OS X 10.10. In particular, we’ve improved running unit tests on iOS 7.0 device and running XCTests on OS X and simulators.

This update also addresses a crucial AppCode’s crash on OS X 10.10 (and in some situations on 10.9.4), a broken integration with the newest version of CocoaPods and a couple of exceptions in UI Designer.

The full list of changes is available here, and you can download the build from our website or via ‘Check for updates’ AppCode menu.

P.S. By the way, AppCode’s online help is live! Find it by this link and don’t be lost in the IDE’s features with it.

Yours as always,
The AppCode team

    Great job on the update, guys! Cocoapods error was driving me nuts and you fixed it really quickly. Thanks!

    @appcode When will you add “native” Swift support (Code-completion, coed-highlithing, etc. ?

      We are working on it. When we are sure it’s enough and of good quality to show you we’ll make it public.

    Loving appcode, but why does it takes longer than xcode to build?

      There are a couple of issues about this: and Feel free to comment and vote.

        The rebuilds in XCode 6.1 are almost instantaneous, where as it takes a while in AppCode and I have to sit and watch the Checking Dependencies spinner for so much time which is really breaking the development cycles. This has almost became a deal breaker for me and I started using XCode again even though I very much love and am eager to use AppCode. The amount is time it takes to run a application is ridiculously slow. And I specifically experiences this using CocoaPods dependencies.

          Maybe you could provide us with some sample project to verify/investigate? This could really help.

            Hi Anastasia, Samish

            I discovered that switching from Team iOS Developer account to individual iOS Developer account solves the problem with so (fucking) long “checking dependencies” procedure.
            xcodebuild (which is used by AppCode to actually build product) has the same issue.

            Still no have good workaround for how to use AppCode with TeamAccount.

    I cannot create new swift file. So AppCode 3.0.6 still not support swift yet, right ?
    I open swift project, but it seems that AppCode just recognize swift keywords such as func class import but ios base class (UIViewController …)
    Thanks 🙂

    • Anastasia Kazakova says:

      There is only basic Swift support for now with some very basic highlighting. To create a swift file do New | File from Xcode template and select Swift there. We are working now at some more profound support, hope to release it during Fall.

        thanks 🙂 I’m waiting. I move from 3.0.4 to 3.0.6 and see many differences. nice work 🙂

    Keep up the great work! AppCode is fantastic!

    The build process is really slow. It hangs a bit at the “Checking dependencies” step. I have AppCode 3.1.3. Can the dependencies checking step be disabled somehow?

      How long does it take xcodebuild to build the same project when invoked from the terminal (check by taking a build command from Help | Show Log in Finder)? Is it quicker or the same time? Feel free to provide comments bout this here:

    Good ide but build are extremely slow. My project with appcode builds 2,5 minutes while with xcode it takes few seconds. =(

      We’ve faced the problem (, but the difference was not so serious. Feel free to describe your case and provide feedback in the issue.
