Project Catalyst To Create A Greater Reason For Developers To Go Deep On iPad: Craig Federighi

Apple-supported Project Catalyst is to create a greater reason for developers to go deep on the iPad. However, the project is aimed to bring the best of both Mac and iPad.

Every Apple fan knows company’s head of Software Engineering Craig Federighi, who recently made some important announcements at WWDC 2019. During the event, Federighi spoke about Project Catalyst and emphasized that developers should make the most of Project Catalyst to port the iPad experience to Mac.

According to Federighi, “We see so many apps that are really fantastic on the iPad that I’ve wanted on the Mac, you know, and instead, sometimes I end up using a website, or sometimes I don’t have that functionality available at all.”

Developers Should Use Project Catalyst to Create Great Software for Mac and iPad: Craig Federighi

During an AppStories interview, Federighi spoke to Federico at length on why developers should port their iPad applications to Mac. The project is a vital element of macOS Catalina. This project will help developers to bring a slew of software pieces to Apple’s laptops and desktops.

But is it all Mac that will benefit from Project Catalyst? Federighi believes that the iPad will also gain from this project, which was earlier christened as Project Marzipan.

Craig Federighi also wishes developers should develop useful software for both Mac and iPad, instead of specializing in Mac or iPad.

The project is aimed initially to catalyze macOS and iPadOS development. It will address the fundamental problem: port a software piece not available on macOS from iPad.

Apple encouraged the developer community by converting some of its iPad apps like News, Stocks, Voice Memos, and Home.

As mentioned above, Apple’s plans for Project Catalyst is to create a win-win situation for macOS and iPadOS.

Federighi says, “We also want to create a greater reason for a developer to go deep on iPad. You know, if they say, hey, I’ve got an opportunity here, if I really make my iPad app deep — I support … multiple documents open at once, all the kind of extended power functionality for iPad — that’s also going to make it a great Mac app.”

He further adds, “So now we’re going to get better iPad apps, we’re going to get more Mac apps, better Mac apps, that seems great for developers and great for Mac users.”

That’s all friends!
