Skoog for Swift Playgrounds.

Learn coding and music together with Skoog and Swift Playgrounds. Now included in the Swift Playgrounds app.

Skoog Playground

Now control your own musical instrument using real Swift code with our new Skoog playground in the Swift Playgrounds app. With specialised lessons for iPad, Skoog and Swift Playgrounds allow students to write code and see it come to life in the physical world.

Learn about notes, octaves, input devices, animation, counters, and find out how to use event handlers. Change thresholds to adjust how your code responds to presses and squeezes on your Skoog.  Experiment with echoes, physics, and musical harmony using an interactive musical buddy called ‘Ping’.

Are you ready to get hands-on with Swift and take your new musical instrument for a spin?
