Hello World: app size comparison by language (Objective C, Swift, C#, F#) RRS feed

  • Question

    Just a simple experiment. May be a fair indication of the size of standard runtime libraries since the app itself doesn't do much. All apps have been compiled in Release with standard settings using XCode 6, iOS 7.1, Xamarin Studio 5 and Xamarin.iOS

    App bundle size:
    Obj C 172 KB
    C# 3 MB
    F# 3 MB
    Swift 6.7 MB

    Wow ... I get it that Objective C will be way smaller since it's a native code. But I never thought that Swift will be so big, even bigger than Xamarin's results. Thanks for the info.
