Apple today updated its Swift Playgrounds app for the iPad to version 2.2, introducing a number of improvements.

Third-party content is easier to discover and download within the Swift Playgrounds app, and Apple has made touch gestures for selecting code both more precise and easier to use.

It added support for the new iPad Pro sizes as well. I was having a bunch of weird UI glitches before this update but now its fully optimized and haven’t had any issues since updating a few hours ago.
