XD export feature to xCode
Add xCode export to the list of functions... great for informative apps
Can you tell us more about how you’d like this to work? Do you want XD to export image assets and insert them directly into the correct folders/filenames in an existing Xcode project? Or do you want XD to generate Objective-C / Swift code to create a brand new Xcode project?

We need export assets directly to FTP SERVER , just like Adobe Muse , is it difficult to understand ? We need working page , no prototype !
When direct app creation from XD will be implemented?
As a designer and hobbyist coder I can tell you that while coding in swift is easily learned there are no truly great resources that I've found for working well with Xcodes interface builder.
Being able to design in xd and import to Xcode having my entire storyboard laid out (text as UIlabel etc...) would be hugely valuable to me.
Graphic assets should be exported in SVG format, so that they can be included in the app project and displayed using one of the many SVG native libraries for iOS, Android, etc. The xcode or android project must include the library and display the svg assets as separate elements, so that they can be made interactive by the coder.
might look at sympli.io, their Android Studio and Xcode plugins
It could be a new XCode project so to not mess up with current one, where text would be converted to UILabel, and if this label is in Navigation bar group and it's positioned in a centre - it could be recognized as NavigationBar Title with all it's properties.
Instead of transferring navigation bar background as an image –> to rebuild it using native tools.
If it's vector graphic shape –> to store it in assets as pdf.
So it could be a step further. So developers will have some base point from which to start. Colors, fonts, sizes. Of course it should be some additional work with auto layout features, but it will be better to refer an example from the native iOS environment, instead of tinkering around in different prototyping tools, and design descriptions.
In this sort of way the gap between designer and developer could be vastly narrowed.

Both ideas sound really good to me, however, I am a designer and I think it would be best to listen to the developers to find out more about what they would like?
Experience Design to Xcode
XD is alot easier to use then PS. it would make it easier for designers to export to Xcode just like PhotoShop.
