Introduction to iOS WKWebView

Although I’ve used UIWebView over the years, there was never a compelling reason to make it a go-to UI control. With the introduction of WKWebView, my perspective may change.

Mattt Thompson:

Boasting responsive 60fps scrolling, built-in gestures, streamlined communication between app and webpage, and the same JavaScript engine as Safari, WKWebView is one of the most significant announcements to come out of WWDC 2014

And this is intriguing:

One of the major improvements over UIWebView is how interaction and data can be passed back and forth between an app and its web content.

WKWebView sounds well worth a closer look. Mattt provides a good introduction.
