While Hacking with Swift is well-organized, there is no interactivity and everything is in text or screenshots. This can make it hard to follow through if you are not used to reading long programming tutorials or books. See More
Hacking with Swift is project-oriented. It takes you through Swift and iOS with 39 different projects — each introducing a new concept, API, or methodology incrementally. The projects are comprehensive and covers many important iOS concepts and APIs beyond the fundamentals (e.g. Core Data, Touch ID, application profiling and debugging), including working with graphics and making games with it. By the end of the course, you will have gained practical experience into the inner workings of Swift and iOS. See More
In this course, you learn by building an iOS app incrementally with the relevant concepts and technologies taught at each step. Instead of having multiple small projects, this course focuses on a single project and uses it teaches you how an iOS app is made from start to finish, which makes this course great if you want a short tour through iOS development.

Instead of the typical long video lectures (>30 minutes), this course splits each lesson into bite-sized chunks (not exceeding 5-10 minutes each) that builds up incrementally and quizzes the learner after every few lectures. This is great for material retention and doesn't require sitting through an entire video to be useful — it is possible to skip the lectures on topics you already know (e.g. Xcode setup, Storyboards, etc.) and jump straight to what you don't (e.g. AutoLayout).
