    im starting with Swift development, and I've followed Apples tutorial (for adding meals and rating them), but I'm looking for more tutorials.

    I was wondering if anybody knows of any sources, where there are multiple tutorials for multiple different apps? Most tutorials I've looked at only cover some concepts, rather than following the development cycle from start to end.

    Ideally I'd like to find a site that has multiple "easy", "intermediate" and "advanced" tutorials.

    Does anybody have any recommendations please?

    There is literally hundreds of programming guides to get into Swift. Google will yield you with lots of choice. Ray Wenderlich is a decent place to start.

    Ray Wenderlich & Hacking with Swift are the only two I would recommend.

    I recommend Udemy.com to get started. I signed up for a "iOS 9 and Swift 2" course there, for something like $25 by a guy named Mark Price. That was in late April, and I had my first app in the app store by June 20th. I didn't even finish the course, I just learned enough that I could rely on google searches to get me unstuck from any problems, and "Ray Wenderlich & Hacking with Swift" (which were mentioned above) as well as StackExchange often showed up in my search results.

    Stanford has got a free course for iOS 9 and Swift 2 on iTunes U as well, but I haven't checked that out (they only had 1 video out back when I got started, and I was looking for a full course). I expect that to go way more in-depth than the paid Udemy course, just because it's a University level Computer Science (CS) class, Stanford has the best CS program in the country, and Paul Hegarty has been teaching this course since 2010.

    Before you go too far, make sure you're dealing with the latest version. Swift has changed a few things and there's no reason to study the old stuff. This is the same thing that happened with ObjC... There's no reason to learn reference counting in ObjC.

    There's a lot of 'old' stuff out there, they may have value but can confuse things.
