 Hello, my friends and I are going to make a food delivery app. We have already read a lot of blogs about it (how to create a food delivery app and food delivery app development as an example). We have never done anything on Swift language and on IOS at all. So I want to ask someone, is there are other IDEs besides Xcode for IOS?

For iOS development you are pretty much stuck with XCode - unfortunately.

Tools like the ones from Embarcadero can be used to write applications in C++ or Object Pascal (link) - the link points to the free community tools, which can be used for non-commercial purposes (up to a certain amount of money you make with your application).
Personally I like the Delphi product they have.

The tools run in Windows though and you will need a connection to a Mac to compile for iOS (I use a virtual machine on my Mac that runs Windows).

There are a few other tools out there, and as far as I can see Microsoft Visual Studio offers iOS development as well, but I find it far from user friendly.
