Following yesterday's special media event, Apple has announced that its Swift programming language has hit GM status for iOS. With this latest milestone, Apple is now inviting developers to submit Swift apps to the App Store for review.
You can now submit your apps that use Swift to the App Store. Whether your app uses Swift for a small feature or a complete application, now is the time to share your app with the world. It’s your turn to excite everyone with your new creations.
Regarding Swift for OS X, Apple states the language will hit GM status for the Mac when Yosemite ships later this fall. Until that time, Apple notes that developers can keep developing Mac apps with Swift by downloading the latest beta of Xcode 6.1.
Apple adds that GM status does not mean that language is in a finalized form, as it plans to adds new features, improved performance, and refined syntax. However, Apple notes that apps embedding a version of the new Swift GM runtime will continue to run well into the future.

The language has already evolved a lot during the betas for the better. I wonder what's next for Swift 2.0 or when that will be released. It would be really nice if Apple starts rewriting Cocoa/UIKit using Swift too.
Title is correct. Swift is not GM yet for OS X. It's GM only for iOS
Just name it Lyrical. LyricalToday gives me a bad quality impression. I don't know why. Just my 2 cents:p
I'll support Spotify in the future if there's enough demand for it, I suppose. But I plan to ship this when Swift is GM for the Mac as it is now and then add the features, since this is my first app and I've never been motivated enough to put an app on the App Store. :D
Why? From the perspective of a Swift developer, it doesn't matter what language Cocoa/UIKit is implemented in internally.
Swift' Programming Language Hits GM Status for iOS and OS X, GM Coming with Yosemite
That what I typed is better. The actual title is wrong cause of the incorrect punctuation.
